    Here's Mudflap to go along with my custom Skids. :) 

    Mudflap was repainted for movie accuracy. I also added autobot symbol decals on his hubcaps. Gotta be honest and say that I hated these molds (along with Skids') when I first saw them on pics, but I liked them surprisingly once they were onhand. Only thing I dislike about this one now is how his small optics can barely be seen because of the huge eyebrows. The lighting exaggerates it a bit, though. :) 

    Without further ado, here are the pics. Enjoy! Comments and criticisms are welcome.

    very good sir,
    this one is even better than your skids.
    I just picked this one up and am surprised of the repaint potential he shows.

    pure greatness!

    Thanks guys! I did have a bit more fun painting this one compared to Skids. There's a lot of molded details in both molds. Painting the headlights was a PITA. I had to do those over a few times coz I couldn't get them to look right, but I'm happy with what I ended up with. :)

    The drybrushing is just perfect, however I don't like seeing the factory colour on the vehicle parts. For mine, I used a metallic copper/bronze paint. Say no to factory colours!

    Thanks guys! :) 

    Thanks! Yup I know. I really need to get an airbrush. :) 

    Thanks! I've shifted to using primarily grays for my drybrushing - gives the figures a better in-scale-and-not-too-shiny metallic effect IMO. Haha, well I'm just going for overall movie accuracy here so have to stick to the orange. :)

    Very cool! Mudflap is very detailed for a Deluxe, it just takes a bit of paint to bring out the detail. I'm going to get the Human Alliance figure before this one though.

    Thanks! The holes on the rear windows? They're for the screws that attach the rear door pieces to the roof/rest of the body.

    Thanks man! I didn't bother painting in the car parts. I just added orange panels to the robot mode. It's a custom-mixed color and I mix by eye so I really can't give you a formula (though obviously, it's a mix of red and orange). :)

    Looks great! Only thing left to do is switch his feet around, if you're going for complete screen accuracy.
