    So I got this commission a while back, I typically give the option to commissioners for electronics, now that I enslave BigHank in my shop (he's chained to the soldering station in fact)

    I offered/sealed the deal for "light up eyes" on this commission, however Big Hank decided to raise his bar (again) and install not only RED led eyes, but a switchable set so that when the autobot/decepticon gimmick thing was turned to "Autobot" Wheelie's left eyeball would be blue (like in the movie, thanks to Mikaela blowtorching it so nicely)

    From what I understand (way above my head) there's an actual microchip which senses where the gimmick faction thing is positioned.

    Transformation remains unhindered, and I applied some of my trademark paint. I'll be adding more pictures tomorrow (including alt modes, and possible one of him humping my leg, if I feel inclined)

    Fantastic. The paint and LEDs go a long way to make the figure leagues more movie accurate. I didn't even think it resembled the movie too much in base colors, but with these upgrades I nearly mistook it for a scratch-built Wheelie. Great work as always.

    I take it BigHank should change his user title to "F_R's work slave"?:lol 

    Still, the ability to change the color of the eye is AMAZING. Sure looks a hell of alot better than my stock Wheelie, that's for sure!

    Thanks guys. I also forgot to mention that I modded the upper arms a little to allow the lower arms to have more range, easy simple mod.
