    Well after a weekend of painting he's finally done.
    Made with Marvel Select Abomination he's HUGE. Bigger then Octopunch but I really wanted to make him pretty menacing.
    I wanted to get a pretender inside this guy but learned I would have to sacrifice the "shell" in order to get a good sized figure to be Skullgrins robot form.

    Using WFC Megatron was really the only option for me as his Pretender alt mode is a cybertroinan tank.

    Heres the Finished product!

    enjoy.

    That is just too cool. I think you've outdone yourself. Until the next time, when you outdo yourself. Very good attention to detail.

    I think it's safe to say that you are officially the Pretender master, Primo. Top notch work. Love the washes on the skull head, and how he attaches to the rear is killer. Great job, bro.

    Very very awesome :thumbs2: 

    I wonder though, can the bot still transform into the original tank form too ?

    amazing man. you went from young padawan to master customizer in a few months. I look at this and again question why you're subbing out paint jobs. you don't need to. Only minor gripe (and it's small) is to fade the white hands into the forearms, otherwise they sort of come off like white gloves.
