    I have had this idea for awhile so I finally have some time to work on some projects so I wanted to do this one.

    Now of course it's just a WIP and I know there is some paint issues and they will be taken care off in due time so please don't keep posting about the paint, thanks.

    i'm going to do a couple different shades of orange along with couple shades of gray as well.

    EDIT: I have just found this post again (I was going to repost but I am glad this is still on here.)

    I am planning on finishing this figure soon, cleaning him up and putting the final details on him. :)

    safety orange, krylon fusion

    i was experimenting with my acrylics as well (which I like to paint most of my figures with) but I'm probably going to just go back to the fusion paint. I might do some little details with the acrylics but not the majority of it.

    I just had to put him together and see what he looked like and I am really happy with him so far. :)

    Cool. I did one of these last year, but mine did not look as clean. Great start.

    I thought this was the perfect mold for Wheelie and I'm glad others think so too

    Now all he needs is a slingshot. Nice coloration, and a good use of the mold.

    I agree that this is a great mold for Wheelie, though I think that the head could use some work. As it is, it doesn't look quite right... though it could be reshaped and the "beard" could be trimmed off easily.

    How about an Energon Strongarm Head? It should be about the right size, and has sort of a Wheelie shape to it....
