    Call him Backstop, call him Saidos, the little rock lord you love to hate has a soft spot in my heart. I secretly hope for a Masterpiece version someday.

    Painted with acrylics, and some minor mods. I replaced his oversized right hand with a smaller hand (ROTF Breakaway) that can fit up in his rhino chin completely.

    Let me know what you think. Oh and a faction symbol is coming.

    I swear I thought it was factory paint. That blue looks awesome.

    this is a mold like undermine that has so much repaint potential,but a lot of people are put off by the initial colors and mold

    Thanks for all the positive comments guys.

    The blue paint is testors acrylic in Ford engine blue. It's amazing. Goes on smooth and seemingly sinks into the plastic. That's three or more coats and it will not chip!

    That's a great little custom. I'd call him Blue Bacchus Beast Form.

    Wow, they all look so great together! Just curious, is the red one meant to be Ramhorn?

    As others have said, that paint application is near flawless. Great work, man; I always enjoy seeing your work :)

    That's so beautiful. Never thought I'd call Saidos beautiful, but here I am. The beast mode group shot is very cool, emphasising the nice headsculpts.

    SydneyY...thank you! As my best (and only) customer, I'm so happy you like it.

    Again, thanks to everyone for the comments, especially SQ7 & Autobotx23. You both always give great feedback (to me, and others) and it means a lot coming from you.

    deltaprime, the red one did start as Ramhorn, but I ended up calling him Bloodhorn.

    The paint job is loosely based on Friender from Casshern (and Tatsunoko vs. Capcom)

    dp, I have THOROUGHLY enjoyed your work over the years. I've always felt it's very unconventional (the black repaints especially), and I enjoy that. When I come into Radicons and see 10 Movie Prime repaints and 10 Ptitvite Devestators, the customs that get my attention are the ones that are totally different (not that the Primes and Devys don't look cool).

    I hope we see more of your work, bud :thumb
