    Saw Nellie131's take on this mold as Trailbreaker and knew I had to follow suit :)  IMO it works perfectly!

    The base mold was a Crossovers Wolverine. Head was removed and replaced with an Alt Swindle head. The claws and button to "pop" them were removed too :)  His forcefield generator was created from a Classics Sunstreaker engine with a bit of cutting and gluing ;)  The generator is removable and connects into the bonnet of the alt mode as an engine block - it attachs to the head with magnets :) 

    Paints used were Citadel paints as usual - Chaos Black, Skull White, Sunburst Yellow, Blood Red, Enchanted Blue and a few others.

    I HAVE just realised from looking at the photos that there's a couple of places I've missed paint on :(  oh well.

    As usual, constructive criticism and comments welcomed!

    That looks nice! I've had thissame project on hold for 2 months now. I can't seem to find a suitable head, and I've been too broke to buy one. The sunstreaker engine is a great idea though. And I'm really liking the citadel paints. I might have to track some down.

    That mold does works well for the character, but I think he could use a better front grill/chest - the one he has doesn't feel "trucky" enough to me - too stylized.
