I wanted to do a character from G1 who has never had much recent attention. And instead of doing a Tracks or a red Sideswipe (which I did want to do) I decided to make an old guy new again in a new form and with new life, I figured since the Alternators version wasn't an Indy car, I didn't have to make Mirage out of one either. So here is Mirage movie style, I don't have much sculpting exp. so the head is the same, but I really like Swipes head anyway so no biggie. I hope the detail I gave him shows through in the pics, and I know the paint on the body is a little rough, for some reason the paint didn't dry well and it got messed up so I had to touch him up, I may do another to fix the issues but I still think he came out good. I did ad springs to his leg pistons and painted the door lines for a more detailed look, and also gave him the "26" on the hood for the tribute to his G1 self. speaking of which, I threw in my G1 Mirage for some companion shots. my second custom Mirage, I used the same paint on both. http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/228935-classics-mirage.html I did manage to coax some better pics from my phone, after playing with the settings..... I hope these pics look better to you guys than previously. and after seeing the movie today, damn!!!!! I love the new movie line better than the last.
