    A commission for a local TF buddy, Absolute. One of the nicest things about living in a large Metropolitan area is that there are a lot of guys looking at shelves for new stuff. Here in AZ, we actually text and pic message each other. helps a lot, especially during movie release time when scalpers are hitting the shelves faster than we are.

    Anywho, this is his brain chilld, Shattered Glass Smokescreen. A Mostly Flat Black with Dark Plum/Silver/Chainmail detailing. A lot cleaner than my usual stuff, but this was a lot of fun to do. The first of several commissions I'll be focusing on in the next few months.

    Enjoy!

    I really like it. I love how you reversed his numbers. Nice touch. Very clean paint job. The only thing I would have done different is, I would have made the headlights a different color than the stripe going down the sides. Other than that, Simply awesome.

    The reversal of the numbers is very cool. Congrats to whomever thought of it. Can't say i really dig the plum colour, but i can certainly see it as Shattered Glass Smokescreen. :thumbs2:

    Best repaint of this mold I've seen yet. I for one /love/ the color stripe down the length of the body leading into the headlights. It looks sick. Very visually entertaining. Great job, ABX!

    Damn that is an awesome SG Smoky! I love the stripe down the side coming off the headlight. Can't say I care much for SG for my own personal collection but I can appreciate the concept. Is there a chance you could put this guy in a pic with the stock version so we can see the color differences?

    Are your future commissions (the ones you say you'll be doing over the next few months) gonna be in the same vein as this one?

    Were inching into to summer, so it should be around 75 to 80 max. Make sure you drop by Toy Anxiety. One of the coolest collector toy stores in the biz.

    Dude, they are all over the place. My Devy is long over due, a bunch of Classics, a Bruticus, and some other CRAZY stuff. Bu we'll be seeing at least 2 more Shattered Glass Customs. I'll snap a comparison pic of SG and Classics 2.0 Smokescreen later.

    Thanks, bro! Heard from Absolute earlier, he's a happy camper. :thumb
