    This is a figure I had started about 2 months ago, that I set aside while finishing up Bruticus. After seeing Solrac's kick-ass version, I realized I wasn't the only one familiar with this character, and decided to finish it up and share with everyone.

    I tore apart a brand new RTS Solar Storm Grapple, sanded and cleaned every nook and crannie, and laid down some HoK Adhere-to adhesion promoter. Next I airbrushed a light coat of HoK flat white, followed by a custom mixed HoK green, which I had originally mixed for a custom Devy. I pretty much was going for the mix of the E-Hobby release of G1 Hauler, which was a re-color of Grapple, and backstory of Grapple being a former Constructicon. There's some hints of purple in the details, I tried not to get too crazy with it though. After all of the detail work, I shot the whole thing with Dullcote. He's been sitting around for a few weeks, and finally came together yesterday.

    Enjoy, now on Ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190591971901.

    That faded, well-worn Constructicon green deco with highlights is really classy! Great job.
