    UPDATE! 7/12/12

    - fixed the shoulder articulation by using lego ratchet joints.
    - changed the chest a bit. for the details. that way ill paint those lines in blue.
    - added spikes to knees.
    - made a cannon barrel that fits right over the hand in robot mode as well as over the existing cannon in alt mode

    well heres where iv gotten so far

    Robot Mode

    i suck at spray painting.. so much of it got all grainy, if anyone knows why that happens. let me know.
    i had to sand a bunch and now i know where a bunch of the rubspots are and later tonight I'm going to try and dye those parts black. I'm also dying the hands and the old hulk cannon because the new cannon slides on it.

    as for painting, I'm gonna use a dark dark grey, almost black for the main body. then use a lighter grey for some accents and then light blue for the energon line parts. and then orange for the eyes.

    Well the new cannon fits him well. But I wonder does the transformation suffer from this.

    Just for laughs, could you add a pair of deployable scissor blades?

    looking great so far. The plow is pretty spot on. I think if you could find a way to replace his left arm with something smaller, this would be absolutely perfect. Seems like that would be real difficult though.

    My brain doesn't seem to be working, who's head are you using? It looks sooo familiar.
