    Wow... I can't say I have hated working on a figure more than this one. He is a PAIN to take apart, and then reassemble correctly!

    Sentinel was given a completely new paint job from top to bottom with a custom mixed red from Kustom Kolors paint. He features multiple shades of gunmetal, silver, metallic gray and flat aluminum. He features all new BLUE LEDs in the lights and eyes, as well as Fakebusters AWESOME fully articulated hands. I upgraded the hands by adding the spiked knuckles.

    He also features 90% of the correct decals that were present on the actual Sentinel prime Rosenbauer fire truck. These were completely 100% custom made by me. Sentinel was finished off with multiple coats of high gloss as well as dull cote on the lower half of the truck.

    Very sweet custom, love the worn look all over, with all the chipping paint all over the robot, top notch :) 

    But I miss this on the head, it looks much to clean for me

    Looks pretty sweet. I dig the stripes on the back of the alt. The spiked knuckles look nice too. Are the decals waterslide?

    Thanks guys!

    The original commissioner asked for this....

    Thanks!

    Sorry, but not at this time.

    Did I say it was?

    Thanks!

    Tips of nails.

    Yes, they are waterslide.

    I'd love to make some waterslides like this for mine. Any tips?:)  I'm curious as to how you print them and specifically how you print white. Thank you.

    I'm jus wondering about the fact, that you have many commissions but nearly EVERY commission you showed here goes on eBay. Do your commissioners not paying before you start working?would let them pay 50 percent of the deal before starting such expensive customs. Really sad that you have so unfair customers. So when jumped of the commission you could add the worn look to the head right? So I should stop complaining here.

    Really love what you created here and was thinking about how long you need to create such a great custom like this :)

    You need a VERY special printer to print white. I have an APS MD 5500 which is no longer made (I am "borrowing" it from a friend). These printers can print white, silver, gold, and even foil colors. VERY hard to use as well.

    Yep.... you nailed it. This one was a commission request by a good guy, but he forgot that he had already commissioned a leader Sentinel Prime from another very well know customizer. I was about 25% done with the figure.... so I finished it.

    Thanks for the info. :)  What makes it hard to use?

    EDIT: I googled it. Wow. They are a pain. And there's not a single one for sale on ebay. Oh well. Thanx again!
