    Sludge normally loves to get dirty in mud and tar pits, but I was fortunate to catch him after a bath. Sludge was built using an original Generation 1 figure, but mixed in with a variety of parts, giving sexy and nice articulation. I also gave him some eyeballs.

    Sludge's articulation : At his shoulders (via ball joints), elbows (hinge joints), hands/wrists (hinge) hips (ball joints) knees (hinge joints) and head (peg)

    Sludge was base coat painted with House of Kolors and detailed with Testors Model Masters (enamel) This version of the Dinobots, I went with a more metallic gold rather than the cartoonish yellow-gold used on the last set.

    from all the three u posted i like this the least
    at bot mod he looks freaking awesome but in alt/dino mod he looks kinda silly,those classic op arms u used doesnt serve him that good in dino mod, it looks like he has broken limbs.
    the eyes are off as well imo,making them pitted rather then extruded wouldhave been a better choice .

    mike your paint apps are top notch !! dont get me wrong that i'm over critizing your work.

    but practice makes perfect right ?

    criticism taken and thanks. The last round, Jaf did something very similar (it was a collab) and the extra length on the front 'arms' got good feedback, so I went with it again. It's tough, He's got short robot arms to begin with.

    I love how easy it is to give sludge the swivel head, cut the notch off and it's done.

    for sure. it boggles me why hasbro put such pegs/notches inside so many G1 heads restricting their movement. My best guess is that it was a safety issue.
