    Hey there,

    I know I've posted this in progress before, but I finally finished him. Some copper highlights, his minicons and his horrible alt mode. I love this mold robot mode, but the trencher mode is godawful. Anyway...here he is.

    The story is....somehow he ended up on a remote, uninhabited planet, without means of communication or escape. So he shuts down all his secondary systems and remains sedentary most of the time. When necessary, he transforms to alt mode to mine fuel. He's huge, powerful, and maybe someday his abilities will be called upon. If they can find him.

    Beautiful worn metal look! I would have never thought the head would work scale-wise, but it looks great! Enhances the powerful look of Mr.Miner!:thumbs2:

    That just made me cry. Seriously.

    I don't know if it was the bio or just the superb photos you took, but he looks incredible. I got Wall-E shivers thinking about the last 'bot on the planet.

    Mad drybrushing skills. And it fits so well with the trencher mode. You turned an awful mold into what it should have been.

    I really loved how it looked before, but he also kinda looked dead. *L* These copper highlights look great on him.

    Hey guys. Thanks for the positive comments. This was a labor of love. He has gotten some great reviews at home as well! He is painted entirely with testors acrylics by brush, not my usual spraypaint basecoat. Take care. Go Eagles!
