    So this is a commission for Destrongerlupus. He got a hold of a kit by
    eagle800524 and wanted a G1 movie-close-as-I-could-get paint job. This figure really is great. I was very impressed with the quality of it being a handmade resin kit. It was a little loose but I remedied that by replacing all the resin pins with metal ones. I widened the eyes, made harder angled lines in the face and added the red bits in all 3 of his lasers. I'ts a little smaller than your average deluxe but for anyone interested in owning one I would surely recommend it!

    spoonman has quickly become one of my absolute favorite artists. Things like this is why.

    I cannot express how happy I am with how this came out, Eagle produced a physically-perfect, but deco challenged kit, and I knew, after getting my Trailbreaker and Gears, that Spoony could take this thing to the next level. I can't wait to see it in person, I'm sure it's going to exceed my expectations!

    Wow. Looks fantastic. Any chance you are able to pose him with CHUG Scourge, Cyclonus, and/or Galvatron..? (Well, maybe not Galv, he's pretty fugly... >_>)

    Still really cool... Gotta say makes one wonder if Has/Tak went the G1 route as they did with the really good Cyclonus they made... I mean don't get me wrong, Generations Scourge is neat, but ya know... heh

    Wow, I partially like it much better than United Scourge. A mixture of both would be perfect.

    All my fault, I made him keep it simple. He still managed to sneak in some extra face detailing and lens-caps for his doo-dads, because he never does anything by half measures!

    They were originally only available direct from the artist, only 50 exist, and only one painted by Spoony.

    I imagine the stock version will pop up on ebasy from someone eventually.

    Just awesome. Also, I don't see why Hasbro could not just do this.

    That's what I thought! I wish it was bigger but it really is a beautiful figure. Thanks!

    Aw, shucks bro.......

    That's all I needed to hear ;) 

    It boggles my mind how hasbro works. We get a fairly spot on rendition of Cyclonus but Scourge gets tweaked.....

    Thanks man! He do look bad-ass dont he?

    Stop man, too kind. I appreciate that but I'm WAY too modest to consider anything I do a masterpiece.

    It really is a fun figure. I have to admit while waiting for the paint to show up, I had a little fun playing with it!

    Sorry to disappoint, Jimmy, commissioners request!

    Ha, that's true. I really don't :/

    Not quite sure. Destrongerlupus would know.

    Thanks man! You should see this Reflector I'm working on ;) 

    Why thank you!
