    Here's my take on ROTF : Jolt.

    Cool little guy, believe it or not, he was in the movie too. I went with a blend of Metallic Blue and Sapphire Blue (House of Kolors) lacquers for the alt mode. Lots of cool details on this guy, had fun painting him.

    Some cool things about him I added:
    - Head was modified slightly allowing it too look a little more left/right, without sacrificing the "thing" behind it
    - Installed blinking lights in his chest, which have batteries which can be easily replaced (very important for customs with LEDs)
    - Electro-whips light up all the way down the wire, the set is fused and attached to a connector on the bottom of his hood (back) and batteries (again) can easily be swapped out.

    Top job! The LEDs are awesome in the chest, and of course the EL wire whips are the cat's ass!

    I like the altmode color a lot too, It differs enough from the bot colr, and still looks like a factory car color. :thumbs2:

    Very cool. Paint, LED's, everything.

    Do you plan on making another with a more purple scheme?

    Amazing work as expected. Thanks for posting the video, it looks way better than I expected. Throwing this guy up on eBay? I might have to throw a bid or two at it. ;)

    wow! looks really good. Where did you learn your LED electronics? For me it would be the next step in customizing (it's this years trend...) Really interested to know where you get the stuff and knowledge.

    Great as always. Too bad you never get to take a grouppic of all your customs.
