    Introducing my Supernatural Metallicar.

    From Urban Dictionary
    "Metallicar - A black '67 Chevy Impala driven by Dean Winchester, passed down to him by his father, in the show Supernatural. It is called the 'Metallicar' due to Dean's love for rock music and Metallica particularly... The car has been prominently featured on the series... The trunk holds various weaponry to fight the supernatural as well."

    This bash was created using HFTD-Iron Claw from the single pack which showed up recently at Family Dollar stores. I made a few mods to the car using an x-acto knife in oreder to make the car a 4-door. I also removed the claw and replaced it with another knife from a spare Iron Claw. I felt that the 2 knives would work best as they look alot like the demon killing knife from the show.

    The paints were pretty basic: flat black, flat illuminum, blue, etc. But then for the glossy look for the car parts, I sprayed a clear gloss finish and then a matte finish to cut down on the glare.

    I had been planning a heavily modded Movie Big Daddy as a deluxe version, but it was so far back on my list of bashes to do that the show would have ended before I got around to it. So when I saw the Iron Claw minicon, I knew what to do.

    I wouldn't use the Prime Cliffjumper just because he is too sporty of a muscle car. The Impala is not very sporty. That being said... it would be awesome if someone else made a Metallicar bash using First Edition Cliffjumper and also made a "Demon Possessed" Metallicar using the Terrorcon Cliffjumper mold.

    Well as I mentioned, if someone else wants to make a Metallicar bash using Prime Cliffjumper, I'd love to see it. But I don't have plans to do it.

    Part of the reason I won't be doing it is because I try to only bash a character one time. That way I don't have the same character multiple times on my bash shelf. For example, I've already bashed all the G1 minibots, so I won't bash any of those characters again.

    I'd love to see someone else make a Metallicar bash using First Edition Cliffjumper and also make a "Demon Possessed" Metallicar using the Terrorcon Cliffjumper mold. Anyone wants to use my idea, go for it. Just make mention of me when you post it and send me a message so I can see it.

    Plus with all the times the Impala was flipped, crashed, and all but destroyed, yet it keeps coming back, it is either a Transformer or Christine.

    Ha! Yeah. I did not think of it that way. Of course I also thought that making the Knight Automated Roving Robot (K.A.R.R. if you prefer) into a heartmaster was an abomination.

    Well this custom has actually kicked me in the butt to finally try a full repaint with some retool of my own. I have a lot of reading ahead of me, but I did get all the basic tools/supplies. It will, sadly, have to be a PRID Cliff, as that's all I can swing. But I hope to finish reading the tutorials by the end of the week and start dismantling the figure soon.
