    This is a commission piece for a very nice customer, which is also a member here. Plenty of copper, gold & silver detailings, plus red & yellow on wires. I personally satisfied with the blue tones. Didn't fully transformed him into jet mode to avoid paint chipping. Enjoy the pics, guys![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Never been a fan of the gorilla/chicken movie design, but your work here is simply amazing.

    Man, that is beautiful!! The details really pop, and that blue is just amazing....I'd love to have something like this in my collection. Any plans to do Skywarp to round out the trio?

    I really wish Hasbro would have done this too....its a great mold to begin with.

    Gorgeous job! I had always hoped Takara would make a Leader Thundercracker or Skywarp. While I personally think that there could be more done to make the pattern stand out a bit more for the jet, it is an excellent job nonetheless. The customer should be must pleased.

    If that customer changes their mind, I'm sure you won't have any trouble selling him, because this is amazing!

    Seriously though, this is very nice work. Well done!

    Yeah, me too dont really like this kind of weird movie design, but I believed to those who have played &transformed this figure should agree that it is an engineering marvel, the engineers who design this mould have really did an amazing job here.

    OMG, what an amazing dry wash skill!!!!

    Hasbro really needs you to market their leader SS design.

    The whole work is just completely perfect!!!
