    Here is the DOTM Crankcase figure WITH his fingers intact. Just painted the bot mode only. Used flat black and gun metal, then dry brushed some steel and aluminum with some copper highlight and red for the eyes.


    Get ready a LOT of customs...

    Awesome.

    My only suggestion would be to add the headlight pieces to the chest, or to paint or add lights. the headlights are clearly present in the mold, just below what would be the pecs.

    Never noticed that. Is it the part right about where the dreads end? And are there any CG reference photos?

    Not yet, but I just picked up the fig yesterday, and was admiring the chest sculpt. There are 2 flat shapes, halfway down the torso piece, that are the same shape as the headlights, though they are slightly smaller than on the alt mode. In the CG model, this wouldn't surprise me at all.

    What color are they? Are they just a normal head light color? I ask cause he's a Police SUV right?

    Hmmm, i Dont think ive seen the actual ALT mode yet.

    you used acrylics for the spikes, right? enamel gets sticky on rubber parts. looks very smooth. I can tell you painted vehicle mode with gloss black. VERY nice.

    Thanks but I only painted the bot mode. I didn't paint the alt mode. I did use Tetsors acrylics.
