    Because of the insane prices of ROTF figures, this little guy will be the only scout class figures I get. He was actually the first one I painted gray out of the Landmine and Breakaway set but was the last one to finish. This guy made me create my land, sea, and air team Autobot trio. I wish he was a larger class.

    I really like that!! I mean, when was he last time you saw a military water craft that was blue camo? Is there one?The little bit of copper looks nice.

    Why is wheelie not humping him? :)

    yeah, actually. Before, he had black legs and upper arms, and his head had a black and silver face, while the kibble parts and chest and top of helmet were the blue camo. I like the colors better than the blue, but at the same time, now he's a little monotonous.

    I said I liked the colors, but it still feels plain. you list a lot of colors, but for the most part, they're blended so when you view the whole thing, you see it all looking the same. There's nothing breaking any of the color up, out side the tiny amounts of red.

    Hmmm...Though I see where Redline is coming fpm, overall I think this looks great! Yeah it's not got huge contrasting colours, but it makes a "good" tf mold into a "great" tf mold! The similar colours of the robot and the shell pieces makes the shellformer aspect of the toy alot less glaringly obvious, which was one problem I had with this mold.
    Makes me want to go out and try something similar!

    The dark camo color scheme is well executed, and the red and copper highlights are well placed. I also see what the others mean by saying it could use a little more contrast - maybe by either making the silver bot parts a little lighter or by darkening the dark gray shell. But yeah it may just be the pics as well.

    Still, great work overall. :)
