    Ok I wasn't going to buy him but I went to my buddies and saw him and I thought that he looked pretty sweet in robot mode. So I bought him and did the typical, tore him apart and painted him but I still thought he was missing something. So I begin the learning process of LED's and I have to admit it's easier then I thought, thanks to a friend who had some experience with them.

    So here he is repainted Silver (real silver not graphite or grey) and Black the way he's suppose to be. I tried my best at doing his pinstripes on the hood and the roof but I did just the lines on the roof not the circuit pattern which I know is movie accurate but it was going to be a pain in the ass plus I don't really plan to leave it in car mode. Then I added the typical accents colors of gold/bronze but I throw a little red just for something different and finally some LED's.

    So what do you guys think???

    UPDATE: 9/5/09
    I have added some pictures of alt mode and where I shoved the battery and switch. Hope you enjoy!! The LED's were the last thing I did, but I plan on painting the wires black if anyone is wondering, I think it will look better! Any thoughts???

    It looks great! The LEDs are a very well done and the drybrushing is just right - not too much that it drowns out the details. Awesome work! :thumb

    Heys, I'm doing a sideways myself. Quite motivated by your excellent work.
    Just wanna ask, where did you store the batteries for the lights and what kind of batteries did you use? Button cell in parallel circuit?

    I'll be grateful for the help. I've been brainstorming on this battery problem for sideways for months with no satisfactory answer.

    I think there's 5 at least in the reference pictures that I used. As far as I know these are promo pictures of the screen vehicle. But I could be wrong! If anyone knows for sure let me know, but I think it is.
