Unfortunately I couldn't get a helicopter mode out of this,
but here he is anyway:
The painting need a lil work, but WOW what a great concept!!!!
The mold is a good choice for Springer, even if he isn't a Tripplechanger. He just hasn't been exposed to Shockwave's horrifying experiments yet.
The paint application itself is a little rough. What are you using? I'd recommend going back over him with another layer or two of the green and painting the inner sides of this legs.
Thinking you might also want to extend the yellow to his chest, since, at least to me, the yellow chest seems to be a big part of what defines Springer's look
Well I must agree that the head looks really similar
Huh. I hadn't thought of that one. Great idea.
I hadn't thought of the yellow chest, but it's a good point. You'd just have to extend the stripe up the roof. The Drift head really does make a scary good Springer. I went to look at mine to see what you'd done, and I was surprised that you'd only bobbed the horns.
You guys are so right. I'll post again after
a repaint. Thanks
It is good to know that there is a purpose for Drift when I grow tired of him (him not being a character I grew up with and all). I would rather have someone custom paint it this way, then sell it.
And this is a great concept. He's got the sword and everything. I hope Hasbro follow suit. I wouldn't mind Blurr and Springer being "twins" ala Bluestreak and Prowl.
Nice color..but as others said more, I can still see the original designs on the doors....
Good job though....
even out that pain and you my friend have Gold
Great idea and good start on the paint dont give up because it didnt come out perfect I think it takes more balls to post a WIP then a finished product.
I agree. You could just paint that little part that sits behind the windshield yellow, and I think he'd look great!
Looking great so far, I agree it needs more coats of paint though. It's often best to thin your paint down and use many light layers to prevent that streaky effect. Personally I find acrylic easier to work with than enamel (which I presume is what you've used here).
I think it could use some yellow on the chest, too.
Great idea though - very inventive use of the mould and I can't wait to see it finished.
Looks a bit rushed. but really really nice concept.
I hope to see you expand on this idea and paint up a new one. and don't be afraid to sand everything first so when it transforms you won't have to worry so much about parts sticking together. (looks at the white on the inner legs)
