    Amazing work !

    Reasons why :

    - We've seen other, more gritty realism custom paintjobs, but this one looks so neat, as if it is a Hasbro official.

    - The engineering seems so natural ; also, as if it is Hasbro official production line stuff.

    Thank you, that was my aim, as there are so many customs that are dirty and gritty, I wanted to create something that didnt stand out too much in a collection and blended in like a ninja! thanks again!

    Heres a quick vid how I made it

    Great job man.... I watched the video, he looks to be pretty green still in the video, a bit more than he seems to be in these pics. Was that the lighting or is he actually more of a greenish tone than tan?

    No its the lighting i think, he is a really faded khaki green almost Tan as I used a desert colour, much better in person, pics and video do not do this justice :)

    He looks good I prefer some weathering, but your right about it blending in with stock figures better

    Yes I know, But not all collectors prefer weathering, All the Transformers in the films are full of scratches and weathered in robot mode, but i just wanted to be different and make a king of factory finish display model, as you can see from comments, my idea has been received, its on eBay right now, if the winner wants me to weather him before I send then I will. but i wanted to create a smooth custom to match standard factory finish Transformers.
    Thanks for your comments

    What figure did you use for his shoulders? The tiny round bit on them makes them look very movie Accurate

    This is fantastic. Looks factory-made. Great proportions and articulation too.

    If this was presented as the real thing my only doubt as to its authenticity would be that it looks too perfect. the simplicity of the paint job really draws attention to the details as well!
    Beautifully done, totally in awe at your great good work!

    I've seen so many of these made, and really liked a few of them, but this one is my favorite. I actually really WANT this, like it is a really great new figure actually from hasbro that I want badly to add scratches, rust, dirt, and weathering effects all over.
    Fo real, it looks like an official release, but even more screen accurate.

    He is perfect for some weathering detail, but I agree, he would blend in nicely on a shelf of uncustomized figures.

    Excellent work!
