    I went for a good mix of G1 and IDW comics for this one, like some of the other Wreckers I've done.
    Lots of nifty combinations are possible with his hands/weapons.
    Lots of juicy metallics.
    Looks like in IDW he doesn't have sled feet, which is great because sled feet are silly looking. If I had given this guy sled feet though, the combiner he is part of would have a vagina. Just right out there in front, sayin hi. That would take from his tough look.

    Looks like Energon Bulkhead.

    Great job dude!

    I think in my mind I would have stayed with flat paints but it looks really good metallic.

    Nice clean paint apps, great mods. That head looks like it was born to be there, and of course you can never go wrong with shoulder mounted miniguns!

    With those new claw hands, can they fold in or do you pop them off for choppa mode?

    The metallic paint job really breathes new life into the figure. Well done! The shoulder-mounted guns are also a nice touch as are FakeBusker's claws.

    Thanks guys!!

    Fakebuster rules. I got the Mega-mace too with that order. Painted it up with a 2 color blue to purple fade on the transparent parts and it looks AWESOME!

    Yep, Energon Bulkhead. Kick ass figure right outta the box.

    Thanks BH. Yep the claws come off. I too would think to use flat light blue first, but the customer wants as much metallics used as possible.

    Nope that's Bulkhead's legs there.

    ...WTB Energon Bulkhead now. Looks like this bot mode fits the character even better than headswapping/repainting a HFTD Tomahawk.

    Great work.

    I like this mould and I know how difficult it is to paint him up.
    Great job with Whirl man.
