    ...Barricade!

    Updated with more paint, labels, lightbar and a scratch built baton (made from a crazy straw, thanks to Jin Saotome)

    -edit...made an extra baton and a "hard light baton" a la Futurama. Love those straws!

    That is fantastic! Really love the paint apps, and the overall aesthetic. Can't wait to see the alt mode. I'd suggest some amount of purple to give him a more Vehicon look.

    I believe it is HFTD Hailstorm (or RTS Mindset).

    Thanks guys. This guy is a headache. Lots of moving parts, lots of scraping.

    Yep, that's Hailstorm's head, courtesy of Satomiblood. I think it fits the "Prime" aesthetic. What do you think?

    The Prime aesthetic is a hybrid of both Animated and the live action movies...at least that's how I treat it. You could probably create new Prime customs by reverse bashing movie and Animated toys as well (and vice versa). There's a lot of potential for some back and forth here.

    Looks awesome! Almost has a Prime "Dread" vibe to it with the head.

    And I agree about the cross-platforming. I'm planning on using deluxe Knockout to make a DOTM Mirage as he appears to be the closest we'll get.

    Yeah, the head really works for Prime, as well as just for Barricade.

    What parts of FE BB did you find that scrape easily and were a nuisance to work with?

    Nice work. The only thing I'd say is make the headlights a different color because the blue doesn't scream "Decepticon".

    Very nice so far. I can't wait to see the finished pieces.

    But as others have said, maybe a bit of purple to make him look more vehicon like?
