    I quick repaint of Classics Onslaught into Stronghold (Ft. Max). I think this is as close as you can get easily to a IDW style Ft. Max and was fun to have as a counterpart to Toxin.

    The paints are metallic and the clear parts were painted green with Testors clear green (turned out really nice, I think). I think the red highlights, white on the legs, and the green windshields really makes him look like his G1 counterpart.

    I added water slide decals on his shield and the sides of the tank mode.

    More on the TFCON Toxin here.

    It's good to see people who "get it" when it comes to the design concepts and colors.

    Well, from the photos I saw, Centurion doesn't have the hole to fit onto the neck peg. I could be wrong though. My Centurion is still in my POL. Anyone know for sure?

    Nice work. I'm after a cheap Onslaught to do something like this with my extra Stronghold.

    Amazing. Would you be willing to take orders to paint up another Onslaught in the same colors?

    I added pics of the Transtector with the Centurion set. The American G1 cartoon head doesn't look too bad, but the Japanese Headrobots version looks horrible. Overall, I prefer the TFCON head until they make a IDW-like head.

    Agreed. I sold the complete Stronghold I made and the extra TFCon set I had for Centurion but the new set lacks... personality? It just looks like generic heads not Fort Max or even Cerebros/Fortress heads. I really hope that Headrobots is planning to make an IDW one because I just don't feel that I should have to with all the options available. And the Scoponok/Black Zarak set.

    Damn...I need a henkei onslaught. The colors look so much more vibrant. Good job on the fort.
