    I only had 2 reference pics saved when a storm killed my internet for 4 days while I was doing this custom so I didn't quite hit the show accuracy I intended. I've already fixed that though by adding a bit more blue in his torso and panties.
    When I pulled this guy out of my old BW box the transmetal paint was completely gone from his shoulders/robot haunches. I had to redo it and touched up some of the other parts too. I know I can't replicate the shine of the real deal but I hope it matches well enough.
    I intentionally added some extra blue, silver, and gunmetal details to make him less plain too.
    I modded his limbs to have better articulation and replaced the hard plastic wires with headphone wires for better flexibility.
    Hope yall like!
    My 2 ref pics are the last 2 pictures.

    Haha about time! These BW customs don't get near the kind of notice a G1 or move figure does. I thought he was going to vanish with just that one -honor- comment.

    Fantastic work on this one. One day I'll get around to that soft wire hack.

    I really liked what you've done here. Makes me want to bust out my ol' french vanilla colored TM2 Dinobot and do him up right too. Props!

    It's nice to see my favourite series get some love. That's a damn fine paint job, even if I was severely let down by the mold at the time.

    Huh. I might actually have my Dinobot II figure around here somewhere... The memories.
