    Hey everyone, heres another figure from my vault of unfinished WIPS. Ive finally decided to paint this guy up (not greatly obviously), but representing the character Skyblast, from the Energon series.

    Heres the Wip thread for the figure from a year or so ago:
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/233466-another-wip-cloudburn-tftm-overcast-redo.html

    He's painted mostly with krylon colours for bases, and with a few enamels. Its my first time brushing on paints. C & C welcomed. I also made a small stand for the figure using some styrene a post and a pen, lol.
    Thanks.

    Amazing. I love the manipulation of that dreadwing figure. How did you go about moving those arms and legs around?

    I see Deluxe Prime's arms. The legs look familiar. What did you use?

    Thanks, its all in my original thread that I posted the link for. But just in case I didn't mention :s..the upper legs are from a classics prowl figure, i made the lower portions from acrylic sheets that I had been using at the time. The arms are from the classics two pack prime, along with the ball joints for the shoulders.

    That look awesome family! i like it better than the overcast one. the paint is simple colors but it fits him well, great work, so all you did was a head change to overcast or more? i like your idea, overcast mold is great to work with.

    Wow..........Wow :jawdropper:  :jawdropper:  That is just wild. Great use for a somewhat obscure character. It's just amazing how you made those parts work. Are you planning on putting it on ebay? I think you'd make a lot of money. :thumb  :thumb

    Wow! I was trying to figure out what the original mold was, and I just could not guess what it was. This is one of those bashes that's so well done that it doesn't look like it's a bash at all! Fantastic!
