    Ok! Thanks for the much needed feedback. This may sound like a Kelloggs ad but Mudflap now comes with 20% more orange than before!!!

    shiny! I thought you'd be going for more movie accurate, especially when you have the alt mode gloss down perfectly. And it's nice to see your spin on the character, but I think there should be a lot more "orange" and less silver. What I mean is...These 2 twins need as much help as they can get, they already look like chickens wearing car turtle shells, it helps to bring a lot of the alt mode (color) into the robotic parts, make it look like it's all 1 flowing body. one last thing too, I would rather see blue headlights. I think blue on orange work well together, plus if going by the CGI art ...Working on mine today too! Twin day.

    I think it looks great! Only thing I am unsure of, isn't his face more orange?

    Well, to be honest, I don't really know. The CGIs have orange at the ears. I may change it depending on how the actual mudflap looks in the movie.

    Well yeah. The same thing ran across my mind. But I was rather unsure as I really wanna take a look at the movie first before adding more orange. More orange is easy to do. To take it out is a chore though.

    Oh, when you meant more movie accurate, you meant the colour tone of the orange? I had a hard time deciding when I saw a plethora of mudflap pics in car mode and bot mode. Whether the orange should be lighter or darker. Well, there's always V2. :)

    The alt mode is just perfect! It looks like an actual car paintjob!

    I agree with the others though, there should be a little more orange (or some darker shade of metallic color, like gunmetal or something) to break up all of the silver on 'bot mode. :)

    Very nice! Still couldn't bring myself to get this figure. Even if it looked like this. Car mode looks great.

    Wow sabs, that's gorgeous, I would love to see your customs shot outdoors sometime. Your lighting is great but to see what it would look like out doors would be awesome.

    Yeah. I figured as much. An outdoor shot with natural sun would make him look way better.
