    Still got a few details to do but he's mostly done. I'll be adding some decals to as well for the 'police' on the doors and also the 'to punish and enslave' as well as his '643' decals.

    His car/hood has been modified to peg into place for car mode for a nice and secure fit. I did that so I could make his bot mode better looking since he already has his car hood on his chest in bot mode.

    I closely followed the cartoon pic below for the color scheme -- not sure who owns it...

    Thanks for checking it out!

    Between your work, and Stormbringer's, I'm totally sold on the cell-shaded look. Wish it was in my capabilities for painting my customs that way. =D

    Thanks guys! I've since finished him and added both his 'police' decals to his doors and his '643' decals and then gloss coated him for a reflective seal coat.

    It would be hard to explain a recipe in a video because each figure is different and I used different references for each of the three cel-shaded customs I've done. I would advise you take a good long look at the cel-shade style on a given reference pic and just try to copy exactly what you see. That's really all I did. I got a little creative on the parts I was unable to see and it ended up working out.

    All of the above is exactly what I did as there is no video tutorial of any kind yet. Spoonman is working one however ;) 

    Excellent, thanks man!

    Thanks guys! Yes the car hood detaches from bot mode since the hood is already on his bot mode's chest.
