    No need to bump the thread. It's only been an hour.

    ...and bumping your thread up just because no one has commented yet is pretty much bad form. This isn't a for sale forum.

    That being said, I think the color scheme is a little inconsistent. There's too much black on the robot parts and most of the robot armor panels that are supposed to be formed from exterior parts in the movie are in yellow, which is nowhere to be seen in alt mode I suppose. Yellow can work as a secondary accent color if you add more red panels/armor shards to the bot mode. Adding the yellow stripe in vehicle mode would totally help as well. Of course, these are only my personal color recommendations. If you like it better the way it is, no problem. :) 

    The color scheme is pretty much the only thing I can comment on. Please take better pics next time so we can see your paint apps and details better. Check out Jin's tutorial for taking pics: How to Take Great Custom Pictures

    Yeah, I'd take this advice.... Not that my pics are much better.....
    Back on topic- From what I can see, the red looks good, but I'm not sure about all the yellow. Maybe just a touch less in the mid-section, and maybe some yellow in the Alt. mode like mentioned by Mampy. Other than that though, I like it and may have to try that myself! One question though- did you take him apart to paint him? Looking at mine, it seems like he'd be one of the tougher bots to disassemble and then reassemble

    I would drybrush over pretty much all off the black.

    I also think gold would work a lot better than the yellow, and paint the white parts on the cannons. I like the color you used for the car panels.

    Hakka.
