    All this Prime & Kre-O news got you down? Let's take a trip back to a simpler time...a time of bold designs and full toy aisles.

    My take on a Shattered Glass Lugnut. I know I'm not following Shattered Glass conventions, that would likely be a olive drab Lugnut plane, but what the hell.

    Let me know what you think.

    That mold looks good with Lug's head on it. Like it's supposed to be that way. Excellent paint apps as well.

    Sweet! I love the idea, very original to switch the actual bodies rather then the colors, plus this makes sense if you think about it : wouldn't the deceptions be the ones to not have flight capabilities in a parallel turned around dimension?

    Looks very nice, makes me wonder what it would like like using a Transformers Prime Bulkhead. Also, Shattered Glass isn't about switching colours, though a majority are like that. Some characters have totally different alt modes from the represented. Characters such as Galvatron as a rescue helicopter for example.

    Really clever use of that mold. Lugnut's head looks surprisingly good on it. I also like how the red squares on his "palms" could be seen as his PoKE button.

    I would have gone for a white and teal deco (and a goofy smile?) with RED insignia, this is more of a "Lugnut reformatted", still a good figure, but not so SG.

    Hrm... that's interesting. But shouldn't his Decepticon logo be red if it's SG?

    An amazing job. The head looks really good on Bulkhead's body. What to say... Glorious!

    But I have to agree with others, it doesn't look Shattered Glass. It looks like a regular Decepticon, with the regular purple insignia and normal Decepticolors.

    It really can be a new character or reformatted Lugnut... who knows...

    Excellent. I think if this had a bit done to the torso to look like the series even if it made him non transformable, it would very well be the best lugnut out there. Love the paint apps.

    It took me a minute to figure out why the head was out of place, until I read a bit further down what you had done...dude one word.....FLAWLESS...in every way

    That looks awesome, like the way the colours look on that mold for sure.
    How does the Bulkhead head look on Lugnut I wonder?
