    Unlike the stock figure, this one's got the touch.

    Well crap. Now I want to buy one of these and make it as G1 as I can ( like I did to exelion). This looks great. And it's car mode looks like a more believable version for one you would see on the road circa 2005/2010. Watching Daniel get in during the movie was always awkward as hell. Like why were the doors so thick that they couldn't open?

    It was more that they went for style than practicality. Having the car roof open like that was more the cool factor. Plus, and probably closer to truth, you can't have side doors with the exausts running the length of the car like that.

    I was content with the stock color scheme on mine until I saw this custom. It really does bring a lot of life to an otherwise great figure. He's lime a cross between G1 Hot Rod and IDW/MTMTE.

    Yeah, and they gave him side view mirrors and slats for a rear window. Like even though they weren't painting on a window, it looks like a more drivable car. The hard geometry reminds me a little of the cybertruck (could really use some Corvette style curves), but other than that, awesome.

    Looks a ton better! I thought about adding the black and yellow to mine, but the orange makes it really pop.

    Well damn, guess I'm picking this dude up now and copying what you've done for my collection. Amazing how paint can enhance an otherwise horrid looking figure.

    Great work. What yellow paint did you use for his bot mode spoiler pieces?

    Your work had inspired me to do the same on my Cybeverse Hit Rod. You made this fig shine. We’ll done sir!

    What paints did you use? I'm really interested in painting up some of my Cyberverse guys, but I don't know what to buy. It would be my first time using paint, and not a paint marker of some sort.

    This proves the mold isn't so bad, but the factory deco was a sin. Thanks for showing us what we should have gotten.
