    So ive been slowly making my way through making Chug versions of the G1 Throttlebots (besides goldbug) latest custom is my take on Searchlight, i used a CW Blackjack and a 3D printed set of rally lights of which i also designed after that it was just a easy repaint and a couple of autobot logos.

    Thoughts?

    Not bad, not bad at all.

    Were it more available and affordable, using a Takara Adventure Runamuck would save you a lot of painting trouble.

    So very nice. I've got some ideas for Throttlebots of my own. I like what you've done here. Thanks for sharing.

    Looks great, nicely done!

    Funny you mention Runamuck, I have one from Earthrise set aside for Searchlight.

    Searchlight's motto is "Seeing itself, is not enough for believing" but even he couldn't deny your talent with these Throttlebots.

    He looks good. Now it's time to start all over again with the deluxe-sized Earthrise Cliffjumper mold. ;)
