    Got bored tonight and didn't feel like pulling all the tools out so I did a simple repaint to keep me busy. Made from a ROTF Axor. My first time "rusting" something, so please feel free to critique it. I added some patches of "primed bondo". I hope I didn't go overboard and that it's too busy. You be the judge!Enjoy!

    Love the paint job, alt mode and the axe hand, but not to fussed on the head I guess it's cause I love the classic wreckgar style head with the moustache, maybe thats what yours needs a moustache lol.

    I love it. Lockdown is a really good choice as he's not really a "symmetrical" one in robot mold with the weapon hand and stuff, and his proportions really fit that junkion vibe. The paint is great too.

    I'll be honest not feeling this one. Still love your work though.

    Maybe add a porn stash.

    Not really feeling it as Wreck-Gar, but definitely seeing the 'movieverse Junkion' you were aiming for.

    Maybe, to fit with the bounty-hunting vibe of the previous uses of the mold, it could be movieverse Detritus? Anyway, great work.

    That looks incredible! And I have to disagree with the others. It does look like Wreckgar, The shape of the head works, and I really love how you gave him his beard. Very creative, just like the rest of the figure.

    Wow nice take on the axor mold and unique idea!

    I'm also working on a custom of this mold (okay it's the lockdown mold) really cool figure to work with right?

    I'm not sure why this hasn't been done a whole lot before, if at all. It's a pretty obvious choice for a movie Junkion.

    Yeah, junkion for sure.
    Perhaps a head switch with Classic Wrecky might bring the flow together as a more definitive Movie Wreck-gar.
    Great j.o.b. none the less.

    I think the Axor head works much better for a movie-styled Wreck-Gar than the Classics one. The latter wouldn't flow with the mold's aesthetic at all.
