    EDIT April 2020: Reuploaded pics

    This baby got finished years ago, and i though i had a gallery done, but it seems its one of my most obscure customs...

    Oh well, i searched and found this thread so lets continue here

    Started with a Smokescreen (duh :p ), at the time i found a way to transform the legs differently, so i went that way, furthermore i discovered that you could shave some extra plastic from the rear fascia so the doors could fold into the wheel. This unfortunately brokes up the lines in car mode but can be barely noticeable with the proper care

    For the overall deco, i decided a simple black with Purple, i left the camera for detailing purpouses.

    Unfortunately at the time i was just experimenting with pin removals and soldering irons, the result? some minor warped plastic for the wheels, wich cant be fixed unless i get another Smokescreen and start all over :( 

    The chest was custom molded with epoxy, going to that G1 look

    For the arms, i decided to reverse the transformation, so i had to cut the forearms to allow the elbow movement (it cant be done by just swaping em, sorry)

    The head was a modified Wheeljack as base, with a custom and removable cerebro shell for obvious reasons. The turret of the helmet was done with an Armada Overrun wings.

    Finally the gun, i simply added more pieces (cant remember where i got em sorry) to make it look more similar to the G1 figure


    btw, thats Kickback, based on a TFMaster idea, although its still a WIP (even though i havent touched him in over a year), i need to cast a better head, remove the faction symbols...

    Depends, in this case i used a spare Wheeljack head and removed some details, and obviously added the face plate with epoxy

    as for the helmet (and the new gun turret) i used spare pieces from KO TFs, like oversized RM guns, a KO Armada Overrun, and even a weird KO Gobot from one of the KO micromaster´s gestalts :thumb
