    Here's my personal version of Gears, made from the revenge of the fallen stockade repaint. I used the default figure as my classics Gears for a while, until I got into serious customizing and I gradually worked to make this guy better and better. First, I gave it a head from the original Classics Cliffjumper (which would scare some of you, I know, because Cliffy is hard to come by, but the head was a left over, since Cliffy now has a better one). Then I shortened the arms, so that the robot has less of a gorilla look. Finally, I came up with an appropriate paintscheme, and if Gears is going to be an SUV, it's going to be grimy and gritty. Sort of like his personality. Overall, I think the asthetic is better suited to the Transformers Prime line, but I'd really appreciate opinions. Thanks for looking!

    The head is really clever. Cutting off the horns gives him that wide head look without it being ridiculous. Really impressed by that.

    It looks good as a Classics Gears to me, what color is that blue you used? You planning on doing his G1 retool/remold, Swerve?

    Thanks, It was a simple mod to do, and the head fits perfectly on the balljoint.

    Thanks, guys. I really appreciate it!

    Thank you. I think the gears from rotf was a fair option to begin with, so I don't doubt it.

    I used Testors Acrylic Gloss Blue. I might not do swerve, because I don't really know the character, or how important he is, but I highly recommend using this mould for anyone who is interested.

    Thank you very much!

    Oh, and I've decided to put him on ebay...

    Looks good. I agree that he has more of a classics feel to him.
