    inspired by TreadshotA1's repaint of hubcap, i thought there was a slight potential to get a chromedome repaint out of it. i ended up with this dude here:

    Always nice to inspire something... :D 

    Hmm, GW Tin Bitz, never would've thought of that. I always thought it was a bit too metallic-y. Either way, very few Chromedomes ever win me over, because i have a certain nostalgia for the character, so one that I actually like is rare.

    Glad to say, this i like. Even though i'm limited on cash flow right now, i think i'll steal the Glyph/Tap-out idea for myself, thank you very much. :) 

    Question, though: Does anyone really hate that panel behind his head?

    Wow that totally works for Chromedome... I was thinking that Hubcap's face looked like another Bot's, but I couldn't put my finger on it. Great work!

    Tap-out for me. ;) 

    I already have the head and weapon mods worked out. I just need to grab a Hubcap. Challenge you to make a Glyph out of this, and we'll see which one ends up better? :)

    Seconded. I haven't even seen the real in store figure of this yet and I know you made it much better with that paint!

    Nice custom. :thumb 

    But i think Hubcap would be better to make as Electro. (The Bot who will always crumble from GPS the moment you have one in hand). but again maybe it's just me.

    That's kinda the idea, actually. I already finished all the mods for Tap Out, and it's on to paint for me. You don't want him to be lonely, do you? It's kinda useless to have a bodyguard with no one to protect... :lol
