    He likes cereal, ice cream and soup. He enjoys cuddling with other bots and can stick to your nose if you breath on him. In a formal setting, he likes to sit to the right of knife, which is always to the right of plate. His only known weakness is a lame stage trick which causes him to bend with one's mind.

    This was my entry into the s70 gobot challenge. I honestly didn't realize that hasbro planned on repainting dirt boss until after I decided to use him as my donor figure and began looking up images of spoons for reference. This felt a little like cheating. So I picked up deadlift (dirt boss repaint), head swapped with real gear's long view and scratch built the chest. Paints are Model master enamels and finally decals are both homemade and random leftovers from store bought model kits. Here he is, Spoons.

    thanks for lookin' guys. :)

    You did a great job bringing out those sculpted details. He's been one of my favorite scouts this year, and you really did him a good service with your work :thumb

    ok correct me if i'm wrong but spoons was a renegade the gobots version of the decepticon faction in other words a bad guy (or in crasher's case a feminine fatale)?

    Damn it, you are giving me flashbacks of my days working at the Home Depot. Other than bad memories, this looks amazing, nice work.

    I was expecting someone to do Spoons. Well, I really like the new body. Better than the 'eye'. And the articulated head. That what makes it awesome.
