    Bravo, sir--this would be right at home in any CHUG collection, and the blues really pop! I'm guessing that's an Energon Shockblast head?

    Sick man! I'm working on a Whirl myself, though that has essentially crawled to a standstill until Headrobots makes Drone. Love that head on yours, very, very slick.

    Its a great custom of the wrecker reject, the one thing missing guy is the antenna. It still says shockwave more than whirl without the bit.

    I just painted the ridge on one side. Going through source material the antenna has always been shown as freakin' tiny so I figured it was better to paint the ridge to resemble it instead of attaching a barely noticeable thing that would just make the transformation even more cramped.

    may I suggest a very simple but needed tip, if u do make the antenna...
    drill a teeny tiny hole insert a electrical wire (black coating)
    with this u can go 2 ways... retract UP/DOWN or fold (cuz of the ironwire)
