    Alt mode pics

    Finally Skids' bot mode pics, I hope they live up to the alt mode pics.
    I know I didn't replace the head, but for one I was doing a direct G1
    repaint, like Hasbro did to Jazz.

    I used a satin clear for the bot parts and gloss for the car parts.

    I think the paint makes him look more solid and darker, I like how he
    turned out, to me one of my best, after my Thundercracker, but still
    better than my Skywarp, even with the few paint flaws.

    But think of X-Men, The Beast was, well a beast, but he was the smartest
    of the X-Men, under Xavier, so think of Skids as smart but deformed....
    I guess, but make your own conclusions about him.

    Hope ya like.

    I really hope Hasbro decides to do this repaint! Even if they do, it can't touch what you've done here! Seriously nice work, man! :)

    That does look nice. I would like to see a different head though, but what you did is really cool.

    Love the alt. mode and the bot mode. My only gripe is that head. Looks like E.T. got the sh*^ kicked outta him. Overall, nice job:thumbs2:

    Thanks for the positive comments
    and I know about the head, I wish I had access to parts bots to remedy that, the head
    don't fit the paint job I gave him.

    Exactly, might as well put Bay to shame since this is already better than the movie, find him a real head.

    nice touch on G1, I want a G1 also - this is a modern yet G1 concept which is nicer than encore.

    i'm thinking about doing another one, I think i'm going to put this one on Ebay
    and do another when Jolt comes out and use his head, but cut off that little
    spike in the middle of his forehead, that is if the head isn't too big.

    I appreciate the kind words, I worked hard on this one and took time to do it.

    I have a Voyager Megatron I am finishing up as well as starting on Brawn
    sometime next week.
