    I've liked this little set ever since I got them years ago. When I saw the Cliffjumper pictures, this immediately came to mind.

    Drawing there decals was a pain. So was covering up zombie Cliff's scar deco.

    Let me know what you think. Any changes to suggest?
    Any ideas for three of the TF: Prime Decepticons that can be made into an Autobot minicon team?

    Team Bio:
    "Mud slinging is our job, and we love a job well done."
    These guys might look like down and dirty backwoods brawlers, but in reality they are highly efficient spies and information warriors. All too often, those engaging the Dirt Digger Team in a battle of wits have found themselves sorely under-prepared. If you've got a dirty secret, these three will dig it up and show it to the world at the worst possible moment. They specialize in breaking the spirits of their enemies through a constant flow of false information.

    Edit: Oil Slick pics added. One with black joints, one with orange.
    Which ones better looking?

    Edit: Dirt Rocket bot mode pic added. Decided Oil Slick looks better with black elbows and knees -- removed pic with orange joints.

    Your work is very convincing! It's an obscure homage that Hasbro probably won't even consider, but I'd buy 'em ;)

    Thanks. I also wouldn't imagine Hasbro doing this. I just wanted to get an idea what it might look like if I were to paint these up for myself.

    Thanks all of you. These were pretty quick photoshops. If I can figure out the transformation sequences, I may do up some quick robot modes as well.

    And later on, when some other official pics of upcoming TF: Prime toys get released, I'd like to do up the Street Speed Team. Perhaps from Bumblebee, Wheeljack, and Knock Out. Armada Mini-Con Street Speed Team - Transformers Toy Galleries

    Fun Fact: Dirt Rocket was released with Primus as a Wal-Mart exclsuive know as Offshoot and was a girl. I'd rather call her Offshoot. Otherwise :thumb  NIIIIIIIIICE!

    Yeah, that one looks surprisingly good on Bulk's mold.

    Aaah yes, that was back in my memory somewhere, but wouldn't have come out unless you mentioned it!

    Maybe I should see if there are suitable molds for the rest of that team [attached].
    Perhaps a mix of toy lines?:
    TF: Prime Arcee as Offshoot (motorcycle)
    TF Animated Snarl as Knockdown (triceratops)
    Classics Jetfire/Treadbolt as Nightscream (jet)
    DOTM Barricade as Strongarm (police car)
    upcoming TF: Prime Unicron as Primus!!!! (wishful thinking)

    I did start to photoshop some robot modes, but with these Prime toys I can't be sure from the few pics we have where all the pieces transfer over to from mode to mode.

    However, I was bored at the coffee shop the other day and started a digi of another Oil Slick character -- from yet another Oil Slick character. Should be done soon. EDIT: oops, it's not Oil Slick from Oil Slick -- it's Brimstone into Anim. Oil Slick.

    Oil Slick bot mode pics added.

    Which do you prefer, the one with black elbows and knees, or the one with orange?

    Thanks.
