    Another commission Wrecker. This is Classics/Universe/Generations... whatever, Pyro!

    Minimal weathering. Just a few chips and scratches here and there... which helps the fact that i very slightly dented his lower face trying to get the shapeways head together (even after sanding my bum off).
    Like the others, Pyro got some new weapons and I adjusted the paint scheme a bit for the figure mold. I did go more by the IDW colors for Pyro, rather than the even wackier original this time.

    The gold gun in his hand is the actual original Pyro figure gun!
    His double blaster has a peg on top and bottom so it can be attached as a hand gun or shoulder blaster with a slightly different look.

    Looks very nice overall. Tell the comissioner to be extra careful with the gun. a bit of critique: the windows in alt mode look a little messy around the edges, they do look like they could use a touch up. Otherwise again, very nice.

    Like everyone else is saying, BE CAREFUL WITH THAT GUN. That peg is liable to shear right off in his fist.

    This looks lovely, though. Also, it's cool to see how that Calloway Pyro head looks "in the wild."

    LOL Wow guys... Guess what. I broke the handle off the Pyro gun just before coming here to check the comments on him. I was shocked to see 2 people actually warning me about the damned thing...
    I've glued it back together and reinforced it with sculpt, but wow.

    Thanks for the comments! I will tidy up the rear window paint work.

    Sucks about the gun handle ripping off. Since it's the original, is it obviously a case of GPS? Not sure how well the sculpt will hold it together.

    Yeah Pyro's gun is the ONE incidence of GPS I've suffered, and I've got a LOT of prime candidates who've just ignored the problem, but Pyro was a no-go :/

    Great work on the custom, Pyro and Spark (In my collection I've split 'em off into different guys :)  ) are some of my favorite of the Euro-dudes!

    I hate to ask since I should probably know this, but what is GPS?
    Only GPS I know helps people get around town in their car.

    Gulf Poor Syndrome?
    Grown Poodle Snot?
    Gay Pride Syphilis?
    Goofy Poontang Scents?
