    This guy is an Autobot named Copperhead, who is part of the Transformers Prime universe.

    Created by my local Arizona Transformers group, the character originally was conceived for a legion-class custom project where I made 10 legion sized Copperheads. You can read about that original project here.

    While still kind of bound by the color scheme of the original custom, I tried to make this guy as detailed as possible. I wanted to see how he would fare being detailed, but still feel "factory-ish". I thought maybe the extra detail could be afforded by a BotCon release. I also didn't want him to stand out against regular releases. To that end, the only complaint I have is that I wish the medium brown and metallic earth red had more contrast against each other.

    Unlike the legion project, I did not keep track of the production process. I will say I learned to not worry about removing pins when you don't need to. Instead I've decided it's just easier to paint around them. I broke a joint or two trying to take this guy apart, and he didn't fare any better than the other BB custom where I skipped pin removal. Even with a pin punch, I still would recommend lots and lots of masking instead.

    You can see him in some of the pictures below standing against his rival, Barricade.

    Enjoy the pics.

    That paint is super crisp. The color scheme is strange, but works awesomely.
