    So I took a DOTM Human Alliance Scout Class figure and thought he'd make a good WFC Hound. What do you think? Oh yeah, I like blue for this one's glow effects.

    UPDATE: Finished the wheels with glow, what do you all think?

    He does look kind of like Hound. If I were you, I'd do another redeco in blue with white highlights to make a WFC Beachcomber. This mold just screams Beachcomber!

    Really nice, I like how you go into detail on all of you customs. Im not sure on the head though it really doesn't say Hound to me, just my opinon though. Also on the wheels mybee you could make them more cybertronish like most of the other figures. Again just my opinion, in all though great work.

    The ONLY issue I have, and it isn't much and could just be the shadows, is that it looks like he has a mustache, which gives him a Wreck_Gar vib.

    But still...INCREDIBLE. I might need to do something similar myself!

    One quick suggestion...It isn't a WFC/FOC figure if it doesn't have glowy wheels. Can you throw some blue paint on the rims?

    man that IS actually a pretty good FOC hound, I think the other fellows were right about the head and wheels though, if you gave it some futuristic/cybertronian hubcaps and mabey sand down some tread so they wouldnt look like earth terrain wheels so much. and the head is a good head and fits with this body but it doesnt remind me of hound in the least : / id still call it a job well done just woulda liked to see some thing different.

    Agreed with glowy wheels. Second the notion. It looks really good as a WFC Hound!

    Thanks for posting guys, I'll definitely be doing some glow effects on the tires - good tip! And I'll try to make up a better head that's more Hound-ish. Again, thanks guys!

    First off, love what you've done with the wheels. Different from the other figures, but it makes sense since I see Hound as being a bot who would spend more of his time deep in the core or Cybertron, battling through the depths and the rough areas.

    Your work actually inspired me to try my own FOC repaint of this figure. Don't know if I'll do Hound though...any thoughts on another character? Or should it be original? I do plan to go with red as my color choice.

    Thanks! Well, I would've said go with Beachcomber because others have mentioned it, but the only other figure I could see out of this mold that would be red IMO, would be Cliffjumper. I know he's a car but maybe on Cybertron he jumps cliffs as a vehicle like this one.

    I mean just the glow effects will be red...I haven't decided on a color yet for the base. Not sure if I want to do beachcomber, since that was already done...maybe I'll do an original character and do him in desert camo...

    But back to your figure...I like it VERY much. Normally I hate it when people do different glow effects (other than red for Autobots and Purple for Decepticons) blue works really well here.
