    Hey guys, finished this commissioned Powerglide up this past week, finally got around to taking the pics (trying to get the hang of my new camera, which is always tricky) It's for a fellow board member, who (like the rest of you) is seeing it for the first time on this thread (hope he likes it, lol)

    Powerglide was dyed in red, then painted with a mix of lacquers and enamels.

    I like the gray arms. Definitely gives him more of a G1 feel.

    If Hasbro had done it that way in the first place, I would have bought this figure the first chance I got. Great work!

    Looks great. I like how the red seems really vibrant but isn't glossy.

    QFT. Would have been an insta-purchase if the release version was anywhere near this good-looking. :thumb

    Oh hell yes, too bad Powerglide was in the "realistic alt mode" early stages of Universe. Actually, if Hasbro did actually re-release Powerglide in red I'd still snap him up. They toy is good, just looks bad in white.

    He looks awesome!

    Is Hasbro watching? Maybe they need to get the new G1 dvd to see what Powerglide looks like.

    As stated above I would have this in my collection buy now if Hasbro looked even a little bit more close to this.

    Looks great, definitely better than the first version. One question though: Didn't Takara release him in G1 colors?

    Where did you get the silver/red Autobot logo for the chest from? I love those metallic labels. And I totally agree with everyone else, it's much cleaner than your first version. I think its maybe the panel lines look cleaner or it's the shade of red, but whatever it is, it works.

    Thanks Satomi

    I know, I have a feeling I'll be out of customs soon and working for something/someone on a larger scale.

    thanks!

    I can't wait either! should be there tomorrow!

    Thanks guys!

    She's in her new home out in San Bruno California, with the 1st version of Powerglide! (plus I don't know where to get that polly pocket lol)

    Thanks!

    That's from Reprolabels, they make the best stickers around in my opinion.
