    Heads just a repainted Drift for the moment but i plan to resculpt a new head & add a targetmaster but other than that no extra paint & no mods beyond a screwdriver
    Thanks for lookin :)

    Looks good. I'd give him Blurr's windshield too so he has blue down the sides of the glass.

    Wow. Pointblank is actually the only G1 Transformer I own. I've had him for decades; since I was a kid. I really liked him. It's only since joining these boards that I've learned who he is.

    So I am SUPER tempted to do this as well. But then I realize how much it would cost, so I won't.

    But this looks fantastic. :D

    Also, if you want to give him a Targetmaster, might I recommend these.

    Looks good. Might do that since I have a extra. Not sure about the car deco though. Are you going to do the shoulder mod to make it look more G1?

    If it were a custom to paint i'd have gone with your shoulder mod but unless i can work out a way to do it with zero damage it will probably stay the way it is.
    I'd like to be able to still have a complete SG Drift should i ever want to put him back together again.

    I kind of like the deco on the car but or those who want to it would be pretty easy to strip the paint apps with some alcohol.


    Yeah i was thinking about those too..maybe once we actually get to see a real toy but maybe i'll make my own.

    Going on MindsetOverhaul's suggestion of using Cybertron Hotshot i managed to find a Cybertron Hotshot head i modified for Crosshairs (he's even got a mouth plate somewhere) & as luck would have it the ball joint fits perfectly in the hole left by the removal of Drifts head.

    i just wished they had done things like this, instead of more "shattered glass". i'd rather have new characters then just "evil" ones of the ones we already have.

    The head looks really good but needs to be black. I still really like this custom.
