    To keep the trend of introducing non-Generation 1 characters into my G1/CHUG Collection, here's Oil Slick, heavily inspired by both the character's depiction in Of Masters and Mayhem, and by fellow customizer's @dodomumu0807's take on the same idea!

    For Oil Slick I used Tamiya's German Gray and Olive Drab 2 lacquer sprays, as well as their Red jar paint for the eyes. In addition I used some store bought paint from Michaels for the thighs and all the gray detailing you see throughout! And for the first time, I modded one of my customs! This was done by painting a small bead in that gray color and lightly applying some superglue to attach it to the side of the head as a sensor.

    One last note is that due to some prior scratching, I decided to come up with a new alternate mode for Oil Slick just for himself. For that, I came up with the Mobile Laboratory mode you see in the second picture!

    As per usual, if you'd like to see more pictures and my characterization of Oil Slick in my AU, check the Twitter links below! And I hope you have a great day!
