    This custom was completed by me following Brunkion76's original design and tutorial. Powerglide was made from vintage G1 Powerglide parts and the Energon combiner guys Sky Shadow and Windrazor. He also made the trip out to Pasadena, CA for Botcon 2011 for the art show where he received an awesome ribbon for participation! :)

    I'm liking the asymmetry in his legs. I wish the Classics version of Powerglide was this awesome.

    Very nice! I'm tempted to try this myself instead of waiting for the 3rd party version.

    Brunkion's original creation is here & his tutorial is here.

    & what can I say about both Powerglides' that hasn't already been said? :lol  I'd definitely buy both of them without a 2nd thought. Sweet-ass job Mate! :thumb

    Thanks, I tried really hard for the best paint job I could do. Sanded down a lot of touching surfaces.

    Thanks!

    Thanks, it's posted down below and by this time you've probably already seen it. :) 

    Thanks!

    Thanks, it was a fun challenge!

    You, me, and all the little TF fans across the world! I liked the asymmetry in his legs too, can't describe why, maybe it makes him look more real...?

    Thanks!!! I couldn't have done it without you. You are a great creator yourself and a darn fine tutorial maker.

    It was my first use of a hot knife!!! Quite a challenge for me but I learned a LOT!!!

    Thanks for posting those links and your comments! The more people can see it and attempt it the better! I'm really proud of this little guy.
