When the stakes are at their highest, and the Decepticons absolutely need to stop the Autobots in their tracks, they can reluctantly call on Roadblock - a hulking menace who has dedicated his life to becoming the ultimate war machine. His success rate speaks for itself: 100% of missions assigned are completed successfully. Unfortunately for the Decepticons, Roadblock has been known to lay waste to parts of the 'Con army, just for getting in between him and his goal. Roadblock enters every fight, regarless of the scale, with his small armory: -"Havok": a triple-barreled minigun; loaded with corrosive rounds designed to weaken and slow his opponents -"Ruin": a double-barreled shotgun; used for knocking back opponets, or punching a hole through the weakened areas created by Havok -"Agony & Anguish": his twin blades; when the fight gets up close and personal, Roadblock will do everything he can to make his opponent suffer -"The Wall": his shield; it is just as capable of keeping Roadblock safe from an onslaught of attacks as it is of dealing serious melee damage Roadblock started after I saw FrenzyRumble's Soundwave from movie Ratchet. I loved the look of the Cybertron Jetfire head on Ratchet's bulky body. With those two things set, I just dove in with parts I had at my disposal. Here's a breakdown: Head: Cybertron Jetfire Body: Night Ops Ratchet Hands: part of a Shapeways kit from another project Shield: Cybertron Jetfire's wings Swords: Movie Payload's blades with handles added Sword Sheathes: Movie Payload Shotgun: Star Wars weapons, Ratchet's "axe", 1 gun from movie Topspin Minigun: Terminator Salvation guns (woohoo for TRU clearance) There is only one minor bit of partsforming: The H2 part of the undercarriage has to be flipped around in bot mode in order for the shield to attach to the back. The shotgun was an afterthought, so it doesn't have anywhere to go in alt mode. Otherwise, everything fits together nicely. I did notice that the pictures reveal a lot of things that I hadn't noticed before... namely the flat black paint I used for touch ups doesn't match the flat black spray paint I used initially, and that my paint looks a lot sloppier in the pictures than with the naked eye. Damn high quality cameras . Aside from that and some issues with paint rub, I am REALLY happy with how this turned out. He's easily my favorite custom, and I hope you all enjoy him! I'll be happy to answer any questions, and as always, I welcome comments and criticism. Now, enough with the gabbing, and on to some pictures! Thanks for looking!
