    Just like the title says gang, Here's my take on ROTF Seaspray!:thumbs2: 
    [​IMG]

    I swapped Deluxe Breakaway's noggin onto Scout Class Depthcharge, really works scale-wise to represent a smallish 'bot! I also feel Breakaway's head looks more like a dive mask and snorkels or scuba hoses to me, and reminds me of Shortround as well, which is the DeFacto Classics Seaspray base figure!:cool: 

    AWWWwww..........isn't he just da cutest wittle bot? Yes him is, yesss him iiiss:lol 
    [​IMG]

    And hey, while I was at it I decided to toss in LED eyes, LEDs being all the fashion this season! LOL! :D 

    The batteries are in the body cavity (get your mind outta the gutter:sly: ) and the on-off slider switch is located where the third, lower screw was on the back! Doesn't affect TFing at all!! ;)

    Ready for prep/primer/paint! Will update on this thread soon! :thumbs2: 

    For those about to kitbash, Seaspray salutes you!:rock

    Man, I would have never thought of doing that. I totally agree with you on that head- it really does looks like some kind of suba mask or something. Seaspray looks great! How are you going to repaint? Will he be his usual G1 blue, yellow, white or something different?

    I plan on going with as close to G1 colors as I can get away with and still hold onto as much of the real world color schemes the movie-verse is known for! Gotta find that perfect balance between two eras!:thumbs2:

    Oh that's awesome. That's probably the best way to go. A good homage to G1 mixed in with enough movieverse style to make him look real worldish. Can't wait to see it.

    I think you can perfectly make his Botparts (chest, legs and arms (both without the boatparts!!)) looking like G1 Seaspray and give the boat a realistic paintjob.
    It wouldn┬┤t attract too much attention.

    But overall a perfect start! Love Breakaway┬┤s head on him ;)

    Interesting making it Seaspray. You thought of painting over the light piping on the back of the head to keep the eye's light from shining through the back of his head? I hope you are able to add vertical motion to his head, too. It's annoying to have a balljoint not used fully!

    Good stuff, look forward to seeing the final paintjob. The whole gunboat thing definitely works for a Movie Seaspray, and a nicely dynamic bot mode as well.
