    Finally!

    This custom took me forever due to procrastination.
    I decided to use Barricade due to his chunky arms reminding me of an gorilla or some sort of primate. In my opinion it suited him and the shoulder pads that Optimus Primal had worked well with the barricade figure as well. The swords and blasters are attached through rare earth magnets (these things just work so darn well).

    I went through some of the same procedures as my other figures. Primed with krylon fusion, used testors enamel paints, and layered with future floorwax for durability during play time and transforming time.

    This is definately an interesting piece in my opinion. And turned out fun :) .

    that's a great idea!
    I wouldn't mind seeing some detail on the alt mode. a thin set of red/blue stripes down the sides (pinstripes) would add a lot. Maybe silver rims and darker silver windows too

    Nice job! The Cadillac SUV mold would have been a good mold to use as well (huge arms).
