    My latest commissioned piece. Just a simple repaint from CW Breakdown.
    I used Tamiya Italian Red (what else would I use for a Lamborghini?)
    The head and chest are from Steam Shield's Bot Foundry. If you're not familiar with his work, check it out. Amazing things!
    I also modded a RTS Tracks missile for his shoulder cannon.

    CW Breakdown is the same mold used for CW Sunstreaker, right? I have both of them and they look similar

    Looks great! Which shapeways finish did you use? BTW Steam Shield's Bot Foundry does awesome work, I have purchased many item's from there.

    That's the Badcube SteamRoll. Their version of MP Swipe. Great figure.

    I actually don't have any Combiner Wars figures. This was a commission.

    They are. I can't believe Hasbro didn't put out a Sidewsipe seeing as how much they usually milk a mold.

    Yeah his stuff is fantastic.
    I'm really not sure about the finish. The parts were sent to me, already purchased by the commissioner.

    I knew this mould looks better as Sideswipe than Sunstreaker.

    Man, we should have gotten this when CW was still running... I hate it when we get a Sunstreaker or Sideswipe in a line... but the other one gets left out.

    Anyway, great work!
