    Hey everyone,

    scored a TFCon exclusive stronghold Headrobots kit from Hardreturn (thanks again man) and love the way he looks. Just wondering what others might have done with him and possibly some suggestions or pics of their own stronghold. In these pics I put the head on and took pics of his guns, however I haven't put the stickers on yet as I've noticed some people had painted theirs prior to applying the stickers (not affraid to paint it, so if you have paint suggestions maybe list the paints you used if you found one that matches the colors well).

    So basically, give me ideas!!!

    So far (also, I apologize for the quality- cell phone camera):

    And here he is with my other headrobots guy, Hardhead:

    I just got this kit shortly after Botcon, thanks to optimusfan and Super_Megatron. Mainly, I don't see the "Stronghold" character as "Fortress Maximus", but I do enjoy it as "Cerebros". What I did with mine is that I removed the green paint, masked for those areas, and painted them silver (except for the feet, which I just removed the paint. I kept the blue on the crotch, and I painted over the small areas that had green which I didn't get off - touch up, if you will). I did not use the "C-114" labels, as I wanted to keep the S.W.A.AT. deco. I also added an Autobot symbol to the center of the shield.

    That wrapped my project up for me. I'm not sure if that helps you or not, but that's what I did with mine :D
