    Another commission for TFW2005 member Destrongerlupus. Don't know anything about Pyro either. First, I did not do any of the mods. Destrongerlupus added the canons and used an Optimus Prime head. This figure started out as the Star Wars Commander Cody figure and was modded and painted into Pyro's G1 colors. Now THIS figure was a real challenge for me. I used my usual silvers, reds, and coppers. I finally used yellow real challenge was the black stripes. I had to whip out a ruler and a calculator to do some math to make sure all of the stripes matched. I really wanted them to be perfect but all the details on the vehicle made it very difficult. The lines came out a little blurred but it was kind of cool. It looks like someone just took a black spray can and just did some amateur custom lines. Both Pyro and Snare were fun customs to do.

    With my ROTF G1 Ironhide, Jumbo Jetfire, Snare, and Pyro, this completes my red phase....actually I have one more.

    Euro TF's for the WIN!!!! this looks really great. my only minor complaint is that maybe you should remove the wheels directly in the middle on both sides. i always thought that mold was too wel equipped in the wheel departmnet. lol

    I see what you mean about the wheels. It's not what the customer wanted but I did try to take them off to paint it easier but they are riveted on.

    Cool man! That mold is the only SWTF that even remotely appeals to me. Looks great!

    Pyro's been a fav of mine since I picked up the original back in the 90's.

    But he's a horrid brickformer, so when Cody came out, I saw a way to do a better version! When I receive Solrac's finished Pyro, I'll do some side-by-side shots.

    And it's my fault he referred to him as G1, I'm pretty fast and loose in email with the details ;)

    As I said, I know nothing about these guys. To me, G2 doesn't count. G1 and G2 = same.

    Colossus/Clench is on MY plate, but I won't be torturing Solrac with that particular nightmare of pink and neon-green stippling.

    He's got a pair of SUV's on his plate next ;) 

    I am still just in LOVE with how Pyro turned out!

    I can't decide which I like better. Maybe Snare because I like that mold better. I can't wait for you to get them.
