    this was another contest entry for the S70 minibot challenge. a bit more inspired than Warpath.

    I had finished him and I don't know what did it but I got a Samurai vibe from him, so I gave him swords

    I don't think I've ever wanted an Armada figure not named Unicron as much as I do now.

    I really, really like him. I'm so used to seeing his car mode, but the samurai vibe fits him very well, as does the decayed red, and Mudflaps head???? PERFECT! :thumb

    thanks guys, the original toy was nothing like a sports car. I don't know when that changed.

    I have been trying out new painting methods lately, all 3 of my minibots for this were given the look.

    I hated the armada figs as well. glad to change your mind here ;)

    part of the true genius here for changing the aesthetic is something as simple as not folding the grill back up. Very cool.

    I really really like the Mudflap head on this mold and the tabard look created by the chest piece. I don't know what I'm gonna do with it, but I'm stealing it.

    I love that weathered red color he has. And yeah, the swords look great with his bulky arms. Great job :thumb

    I really like the head you used here. After I saw it over at sector70 I immediately wanted to do one myself but I think I'm gonna make him into Gears, which I think was one of the other entries.
