    Here he is. Some of you have seen the WIP thread, but he's finally finished. When I first saw this mold, it made me think of films like Mad Max & Deathrace. So, it seemed like the perfect way to go with a custom.

    The armor plating was added using styrene. Both his hand and hook were recast in harder plastic. However, in doing so, his hand is now fused to his arm, meaning his arm must be removed for transformation, but it's not that big of a deal since if tended to fall off during transformation anyway. I even took ROTF Blazemaster's head from my part's bin for a trophy for Lockdown's hook.

    Enjoy!

    The hand kept breaking where it attaches to the wrist, so I glued them together. Otherwise, the hand was supposed to fold back on the arm.

    Loving it, you truly have kept with the original Mad Max style.
    I was talking to my mentor who is doing the guns and exsplosions for the new Mad Max movie and he said that they are going with HUGE guns and cannons in this one and the new car doesn't fit into the whole bit of the movie. If you want advice to keep him or others you plan on doing looking more so Mad Max, avoid bigger guns if possible. This will fit in with the actua original Mad Max movie theme and end up looking a lot better as well.
