    What’s up my dudes!
    Here yet another Pair of Customs,One of them a repaint into a new character and the other being an earth-mode adaptation of a siege figure!
    Let’s start off with the more interesting one,Blackout!

    Backstory: So when I was younger I deeply loved the 2007 movie,it’s promo and teasers, and it’s first batch of Decepticons and Autobots. I also like the concept of having the bad guy military vehicles vs good guy trucks and cars, as for usually results in the Decepticons being larger and more powerful looking then the Autobots. So this always made me have a soft spot for the two non-G1 cartoon appearing characters,Blackout and Barricade.

    So I lost two of the propellers parts to my Skyhammer figure, which is the base,so yeah lol.
    For a fix eventually I’ll get around to buying a KO version of the mold and just transplant the parts over.

    The head is a bit of sloppy repaint of the skyhammer head

    I gave him FOC Skywarp’s Guns as for they kinda work and I broke the original DOTM gun he had lmao

    And copter mode,nothing changed besides the con badges and the lack of 2 propellers

    And for Barry,I took a lego sticker sheet and throw some “Shield” stickers on there. I wanted to put police ones on there but I didn’t have any at the time,another thing I’ll get to eventually!

    Finally is the paint,Simple and sloppy but it gets the work done,Black paint to make a sudo-windshield outline and roof and Red to make the light bar better.
    Also I did a tiny bit of battle dirt removal(I hate a majority of Sieges battle damage paint)

    And here’s the two together!
    Alrighty that’s that, tell me whatcha think!

    Looks great! Funnily enough I was also considering making a CHUG Blackout with Skyhammer.

    I like the idea of the SHIELD vehicle. Constructive criticism, paint the door black, than apply the sticker. it will look much cleaner.

    I would have never thought of it, but a CHUG Blackout is a great use of that Skyhammer mold. Nice!

    And now that I think about it, Blackout as a police helicopter would basically be Blue Thunder, except evil.

    I've been wondering lately how to make a classics Blackout. I was thinking Spinister but Skyhammer could work. Thanks for the idea!
