    my latest work in a long time....i've been sick and what not and i finally managed to get a little time to finish him....he was intended to be Vortex but with this camo it kind of reminds me or a part of Ruination (therefore de Ro-tor thingie)


    suggestions? opinions? let me know

    Ro-tor makes more sense I guess, given his color scheme. Either way, he looks awesome, and nice touch with the Autobot kill-count

    Probably Ro-tor. Although he looks like Soundwave to me because of the blue/gray head sculpt.

    Hey, this is that chinese KO repaint isn't it? I have the desert camo version. I really like those colours... I'd kill to find one of these!

    Honestly, this screams Whirl to me. Give him a head transplant from Movie Payload or Swindle, and you'll be bang-on!

    As it is, I also see the Soundwave resemblance too. For Vortex, I'd maybe cut down some of the pointy bits on the head, to make it more boxy like the original G1 head.

    Definitely looks like Ro-tor to me. Though he looks lonely all on his own :D

    With a new head he would make a great Whirl.

    glad you guys like it... but what about the head? good color scheme or just a red visor with a black helmet?

    Personally, it looks good to me as-is. Though painting black over the blue parts of the head would help him look less like Soundwave.

    Nice look. Does make me miss my Bulkhead figure a fair bit though. Was one of the very few Energon figures I really liked.

    I am also getting a Whirl vibe from this. Maybe get one of the movie Swindle heads?
