    Yeah, basically, after making Rotf Hubcap, i challenged Eisen to make a Glyph while i made Tap-Out. It was a just a joke, but then i decided to make Tap-Out anyways, mainly because i wanted to try out a new mod with him, essentially removing his shoulder armor (which gets in the way of articulation), and gluing it to his lower arms. Not bad result, imo, but could be better, and i have another idea should i ever tackle this mold again.

    So, yeah, here he is. He's still a WIP, but i just wanted to show off his new gun. The yellow stripe is supposed to be a stylised 'T', for Tap-Out, since i wanted all my Salvage projects to have a yellow 'stripe' or design somewhere.

    The idea behind this custom is that this is Tap-Out as he was during the time he was captured by Megatron, more specifically just a few days into his capture. Hence, he retains the stripe, and his face was made to be as kind looking and young as possible, while simultaneously making him dirty and worn, with a spare engine and gun he salvaged off of another less fortunate prisoner. One side of his car mode has an actual brass plate glued on, supposed to represent where he had to 'patch and weld' new armor after suffering damages.

    And yes, i am aware his feet are red. I'm getting to that. ;)

    Very nice. I like how the vehicle mode's gun has a turret to sit on rather than just pegging on.

    Heh, thanks. It took a lot of work to get that 'T' (okay, not really...).

    I agree, he is one of those characters the writers really screwed over.

    I'm afraid i don't get this... Why horns? And by horn you mean sharp pointy thing or loud beepy thing?

    Thanks! The turret is mainly because there's no other room to attach a socket. :lol 

    Well, my Tap-Out does miss her, and now we know where she is... You captured her! You evil person...taking Glyph away like that. Finish her now! (By finish i mean complete, not kill)
