    First attempt at a real kitbash... had some leftover parts from a Hoist repaint and minor bash. In this case, body is from Supercon Prime, the head is from an Armada Hoist, and tank parts from a KO G1 Brawl. The fusion cannon and telescopic laser from an Energon Battle Ravage. Chest from a KO mini Devastator w/ wings cut off.

    If you could make the windows look alot smoother and clean, this would seriously be one of my favourite customs ever, seriously.

    Totally, fix those sloppy paint apps. They screw up a nice original custom.

    I like this, though I think the legs should be much longer then they are. Good job!

    yeah, i guess the legs might look alittle short, but i think it may just be camera angle.

    Wow, you guys are great, thanks for the awesome feedback!

    I do intend to go back an clean up the paint apps... should've
    known better than to try to paint a straight line w/o masking.
    I'm thinking masking tape and then some repaint? Any other
    tips on how to do this right?

    I also got some Krylon acrylic crystal clear to help protect it,
    thought this might be good afterwards?

    I'll post more pics once I fix it and also when I finish his minicon,
    "Evil Roller" C'mon you knew that had to be comin'. :cool:
