    Being the first(literally) to buy the resin kit this is based off of, I have been ITCHING to paint this mold up for over a year...but, as soon as I got the kit, I saw that a plastic mass produce version was coming out...so I kept mine (kit)MIB...love Altitron's art on there by the way.....


    So, I dis-like the head plate...keeping it off looks more prime to me. I wanted to capture the "feel" of the comic..that dark, gritty look....so, I felt my normal paint job would do the job:)  I have put a new neck in there with the head form a ball joint.

    I added steam hoses on there to give more of a steam engine feel...

    added four leds to the front to bring more life into...

    Over-all....One of the coolest and most original figures to be released...now bring on starscream and shockwave!!!

    Thanks a lot ALL!!!


    Thanks dude!!
    Okay, I actually had (still do) the eyes wire for lights...however, when the lights go off, it would just be the dark translucent blue eyes...I think I am going to stick with the yellow lights because they will still look good when they are not on.....

    Thanks for the compliment, but I think your paint job looks much better than mine... :) 

    The bronze on the knees looks beautiful. Great work, Encline.
