    Have a little bit more to do on this particular custom, the white spray at the front of the car, the tires and some weathering, enjoy! No vehicle mode pics yet.

    I should point out that the wheels don't turn and are fixed, I've always had problems pinning the wheels, before Hasbro switched to the clip on version so I just saved myself the headache and just glued them on.

    As long as you don't want to play with it that's fine :thumbs2: 
    I have some customs in the planning where I'll pretty likely just glue them on, too, because transferring the clips might not work that well. I'll try but I doubt it'll work.

    Whoa. Not a mold i was expecting to see used like this.

    Great mold, but pinned together so securely that I gave up any plans for it.

    The torso and lower legs are pin city, I just left it assembled and paint with a small flat brush.

    The original G2 toy had a spray of white paint on the hood, I decided to go in a different direction: IMG_20200306_173015.jpg
