    This is my take on this little guy, who was actually very fun to work with. Completely repainted to finally give this figure some much deserved dignity. Only modifications done were to the knees to allow some extra articulation and alternative whips.

    That looks really good! You've a damn steady hand to run the red on the tail lights that well. I like the whips, too - nice effect with the twisty-ties.

    I used a blend of metallic red and blue to present a purplish-blue. Looks even better in person!

    Thanks! I made the whips using the twisty ties that came with the figure and a blue decorated wire I got from my local dollar store.

    Very cool! Actually just bought this mold because of your custom, and I agree: he's actually lots of fun! Not to complicated to transform, and the kibble can be moved into various cool looking formations...I'm thinking of a Bombshell...all that armour plating/beetle carapace looking kibble...
    What knew mod did you do?

    Thanks for looking! I simply got rid of excess plastic along the knee to add a bit more articulation, but I forgot who originally found the mod. BTW, hope to see you custom up soon, good luck!

    He looks FANTASTIC!!!! I bought one because I LOVE the Chevy Volt, but I hate the bot. But now you've given me hope! Great job!
