    After the 2007 movie, several "Metals Transform Cars" were available in my country at retail stores

    One was a red Shockblast

    Being a KO, is pretty flimsy, tight in other areas, and tolerances all over the place. Mine broke in several pieces over the years, but i had spare parts from another

    The Covid Lockdown gave me enough time to retake several kitbashes and decided to give him some love

    Repaired as much i could, sanded problematic parts and started wondering, what character could work on this figure? Then i painted the head details and remembered Movie Swindle!

    Swindle - Reflector @ TFW2005

    Color is a perfect match! I added some paint details, gave him a left hand and printed water slide decals with my black laser printer... they are Ok i guess, wish i could print silver stripes with a clear background, but this should work with the realistic aproach anyway

    In the end, i really like how it looks, defects and all. Hopefully he wont break again! Now some pics with Argent Meister, wich is also a Movie homage

    Cool! Tho I'd have to say he has more personality than a simple drone would have.

    This is really cool and well done!
    An alternator customized as a 2006 toy movie character in 2020 really tickles my fancy.
    The paint work on the hood is a lil bubbly, and the silver detail around the monoeye is a tiny bit rough, but its over all nice.
    The decal is a real nice touch.

    Yeah, that hood was the better of the two i have, factory painted, KO nonetheless

    About the monoeye, camera didnt really captured the chromed look, i used a molotow chrome pen, looks really shiny in person :)
