    its rare that i actually post pics of painted stuff (as most of my work is still WIP) but i thought this turned out gorgeous all things considering (i hated the rebel symbol on the hood) and couldnt find a autobot allinace version. not to mention that my sA SS was rideled with bad paint apps. now some of you may be dissapointed that the bot mode was left untouched, but im just not into realism with toys (not that i dont appreciate the talent it takes to pull it off)

    it was a krylon platinum paint that was used for this that i got to paint something at the house and thought it looked more like automotive paint so it ended up on this guy.

    i will go back and detail the headlights someday but for now its just all pretty silver

    onto the pics

    See? That's all Hasbro had to do. The silver looks nice. I don't like the red windows so when I painted mine, I painted them black.

    Yeah I wanted to tint them but I seem to remember someone trying that and it not working out.

    So maybe a gloss black??

    You know that you can twist the ankle to the left and fold up the toe. The heel spur keeps SS standing and he looks close to movie accurate.

    YES!

    Great work, bud! Honestly, I'd like to see what a nice coat of transparent black would look like. I think the really deep dark red would look great for tinted "glass".

    This made me think of Stealth Force. Just sayin' is all.

    A very nice custom. I hope we can see the finished product some day.

    On the ceiling over my left shoulder. Cfl 6500k bulbs
    But the pics turned out quite a bit darker than I wanted and they were taken with my droid.

    Thanks for all the comments guys and glad sq7 and tfwars enjoyed the mid transformation pics

    I'm actually planning on picking this guy up next time I find him on sale. I'd like to try and paint him. I honestly don't see why Hasbro thought they needed that red thing on the hood.
