    So this was actually an old figure I scrapped together and never painted. I decided to use it as a test dummy for a new painting method.


    - Figure is built from a lot of parts, most of which being a ROTF Gears with bumblebee arms and rattrap guns.
    - Energon Spark Crystals were used for the thrusters on the vehicle mode.
    - GlowintheDark pink paint used to get the same kind of energon effect you'd see ingame with Fall of Cybertron.
    - The vehicle hood holds the gatling guns which can swing back to expose fists or swing forward to let the Autotrooper aim their pitiful guns that were never a threat in the game.

    More noteworthy is the paintjob idea:

    I gave it a basecoat of red, then uses white paint on all the edges in the red to add a highlight effect, then two coats of red paint on top to blend it in.
    The end result is...strange. It's noticeable, but it's not quite as striking as I'd hoped.

    Very cool. Is an autotrooper like a drone?

    Sorry for the late reply.
    Yeah, they were the main drones for the autobot side in WarForCybertron/FallofCybertron. I don't know if they were ever officially named, the name comes from TFAnimated and Prime.
