    You guys may remember that i started a wrecker deluxe roadbuster a while back. Well, here he is :)  Not much left to do except refine some of the paint in vehicle mode. Robot mode was painted but no pics of robot mode yet since vehicle is still drying up on the new attachments and car paint apps.

    haha so true :)  the cool part is that the transformation remains completely unaffected since the machine gun in the front has a shorter barrel than on the CGI. I am thinking of auctioning it when it's polished up, but it's the only one of its kind. i used parts of toys found in walmart from other franchises, left over parts from the helmet attachments of Primes helmet from the Omega combat armor, and parts from the mechtech gun of Barricade for the flaps on the hood, and the machine gun. The back turbine is from a twin turbine that came with a black costume spiderman a few years ago.

    Hah,well just a few paint apps really. Not much compared to the stuff already done. Even extended the rear flaps of the windows for a more accurate look.

    Just giving honest feedback on your WIP, wouldnt say it needed work if this was finished I'm much nicer, ;)  looks like you've had some issues with the green paint, or you've got more coats to do. As for the add ons some variations of silver would be cool too so they don't all blend together, break it up and define.

    nice try, it s like been heavy duty & melt down. i think more smooth touch would make him better, especially in alt mode.

    Thanks. Yea, the green comes out a bit brighter than the default green so i have to thicken the coat a little bit. I agree, I will add gold accents to the new mechanical areas.

    Thanks. And his Alt mode actually is much "cleaner" than Vehicle mode. Vehicle mode just is supposed to emphasize that it's DOTM a dark story-ish robot. I will be doing some other repaints, but no mods on the newer ones. I will take your advice on at least one of the new customs because i feel the Entire car should be visible when painted with a "clean" look :)
