    Hello all! Here's something I whipped up using some spare parts and some paint enjoy!

    Name: Dreadnought
    Function: artillery and forward gunman

    "Some people accuse me of not taking life seriously, I say I'm just being a little Noughty"

    Dreadnought never asked for this war. But man is he having fun! Dreadnought enjoys racing out to the front of the pack guns ablaze. His recklessness is almost legendary among the Autobots. While he manages to get difficult tasks done fast he rarely does them without breaking almost all protocol. His preferred weapons are his duel sonicpulse blasters. He is often told he resembles the autobot communications officer but he quickly replies "he stole my look!". Dreadnought tries to have fun in every thing and though he may seem like he loves the battlefield he truly hopes that one day he will see the end of this war.

    I love that bio, but it looks like you just made a better looking Blaster.

    So, you gave Blaster a little more black. Still looks like Blaster.

    Nice bio but yeah you need to do some painting or modding if you want to sell this as a custom character. I'd suggest cutting and sanding down the horns. I'd also do something to the chest window, likely glue some stuff onto it. And that mold with blue or red is just an unwise idea for a custom character. You want to change the silhouette as much as you can. I think I'd swap the red out with I guess teal, anything that doesn't evoke the precious uses of the mold.

    But I do like what you've done.

    I agree with most everyone here, though I personally hate the mold.

    Also, you do know what a Dreadnought is don't you? Name doesn't fit the character...

    Thank you everyone for your kind words and input. I realize he looks a lot like blaster still but I find the red works very well. I plan on adding more colors to him perhaps a shade of orange.
    I know it's a form of battleship and coat regardless I like the name.

    This is a very cool colorscheme either way. How did you swap out the shoulders and back piece? I'd really like to do this myself!

    Cool parts swaps. I like how the red looks in the alt mode.

    Don't see how the name doesn't fit with the character.

    Since Blaster likes loud music, make this guy like soft acoustic guitar music. Viola! Name fits.
