    Sup guys, long time, no see! After looking back at my Ice cream twins, I didn't like their outcome. So i got a new one and decided to turn the old ones into something i planned since i first saw the twins: Runamuck and Runabout!!

    As you can see, Skids is Runabout, and Mudflap is Runamuck. I planned for them to be this way when i first saw the twins. Here is their form as the Ice Cream truck from hell. As soon as i get a second set of twins, Runabout will have Skids's body with the big arms, while Runamuck will be Mudflap with the small arms.

    They have black replacing pink, and Orange on the windows to resemble flames.

    Bio:
    After the Tainted revived Skids and Mudflap, he was surprised to see that some of their residue remained. Using his powers, the Tainted created the Evil twins of the Twins. Runabout, the older of the two, can transfer all the energon he has into his right arm. Runamuck, the younger, can fly. These twins have caused trouble to the Twins, and now, they have decided to destroy Skids and Mudflap to get them out of the way!

    Don't forget to C&C!!

    Good idea, and it looks great, the only thing is I just don't really see the Battlechargers being an Ice-Cream truck is all.

    Very creative re-imagining of this mold into Runamuck and Runabout. :thumb 

    I feel, though, that your painting has taken a step back (in the wrong direction). A lot of your recent customs have been generally improving in terms of the smoothness and overall coverage of the paintjob. This piece is pretty disappointing to be honest.

    Have you ever tried using sprays instead of brushes? I would suggest using some spraycans (if you don't have an airbrush) for the primer and basecoat - you might get better coverage (I can still see a lot of pink spots on Skids as it is) and a more even coat. Also, what paints are you brushing on at present?

    Since i wanted them to be clones of Skids and Mudflap, I thought i should make them have Skids and Mudflap's old alternate mode first

    I want them to be evil clones of the Twins, so sorry, but the heads will remain the same on these versions. Their Beat and Trax modes will have visors though :thumb 

    Thanks! I'll make some!

    Mampy, glad you like the idea of them. I wanted these two to look dirtier than my new twins, so that is why they look this way. I'm still touching these guys up, so these pics are basically a preview

    i really like the was this one turned out definitly very creative and nicely done !
    a few more details would have been nice but they are still very cool !
    the only thing is that the paint looks a little bit weired for me like it is on them but could fall of by touching them once o0
