    So this custom is a bit old but one of my first transformers customs. Decided to do up the Bludgeon mold from ROTF with IDW colors. I hope you dig.

    *haven't transformed him for possible rub issues due to lack of sanding w/ prep work

    The brightness of those comic-colours on that mold looks pretty damn nice! Sweet-ass job Mate! :thumb 

    Is that Drift? Doesn't everyone put the boot into Drift when he's down? :lol

    Thanks, he's kicking the butt of my first "testing" custom which was a cheap gundam kit, I ended up painting like a transformer to kinda test the waters with customizing. You can see full pics on my flickr.

    muchas gracias!

    haaa, never that sir, I'm actually a Drift fan, especially when he's on a Wrecker squad.

    I'm glad it shows, thanks man appreciate it!

    Nice paint job. It's very clean and the shading isn't overdone. :)

    That's First Grade Gundam Virtue (1/144 scale). It's cheap and not very articulated and overall quite crap.

    The colors on Bludgeon work much better than i thought it would. The brightness actually brings out the details quite well, and alleviates the crapness of that head sculpt. Nice job.
