    I know that we have an official one out there, but I have a regular Breakdown and wanted to put my own spin on the deco.

    It’s far from perfect, thanks to me not realizing how much of a pain those legs would be to paint. I am proud of the torso, however.

    And since it is Combiner Wars, have a few shots of limb mode.

    I plan to keep him as an arm, if I do ever build a G2 Betatron out of the figures I have.

    Man, the gold makes him look great, I like your deco better than the officials. Purple looks better than the fluctuating color of the original color.
    Good Job!:thumb 

    Big fan of the G2 Kick you've been on recently.

    Thanks! It comes from seeing them all on Tv when I was a kid, or in the toy store, and not being able to get any. Combine that with a bunch of boredom for good reason, and this stuff just happens.

    I have a question about that decepticon insignia, is it painted or a sticker?

    Good question! It is a home-made sticker. I bought some printer-friendly shipping labels and the insignia from the TF Wiki. I also covered the ‘sticker’ in tape before cutting to preserve some of the art. At least it’s cheaper than the alternative.

    I did the same here for my customs of G2 Sideswipe and Rapido, though the Autobot logo does look better at that size.
