    This is my take on customing a Mutt Williams figure into Sam Witwicky.

    My choice was to change his t-shirt into a shirt like the original Spike of the vintage G1 cartoon. I did that with some GW green matter.
    I also repainted something here and there.
    I used Space Wolves Grey for the shirt, a color very similar to the previous shirt, but a tiny bit more blueish.

    Update:
    sculpted new hair for Spike

    Look great! You should give him more of an afro hair style, like in the photo. Also, why is one of his shoes super shiny? Great fig, again.

    The shoe is shiny because of the light and because the paint was still fresh :) 
    I never sculpted hair, I can try.

    Updated with sculpted new hair.
    For some reason the hair appears dark, but it's slightly lighter and with some ink washing and drybrushing. I used Bestial Brown as base, then Flesh Wash and drybrush with Bubonic Brown.

    Update2: added another closer picture of the new hair
