    Low effort custom, this one. Sorry about the specks of primer and little bits of blue poking out.
    Anyway, I saw another Studio Series Blurr for cheap and was like "Hey, I could make this into Psycho!".
    So I did.

    I admit, it's more an interpretation than a straight up re-tread... for example, he's got a head (ew, a Super Machine Man with a head? DISGUSTING, get it outta my sight--). The head's from a spare TR Triggerhappy that I had laying around after I used him for Universe Starscream. It's been modded with a dumbbell joint and the legs have been plucked off so he no longer becomes a headmaster, though I still have the parts to make him into a headmaster again. Maybe I'll make it Cobra or something.

    A lot of parts are painted in wine red because I... embarrassingly ran out of silver paint and didn't wanna totally drain my Molotow liquid chrome marker.

    Really happy with how the chromed inner cockpit glitters beneath the light, even if the matte clear on the custom-tinted glass kinda dulls it a little.
    Also, hi flesh coloured sprue from the ball joint set I had on hand!

    I think the black and red scheme works really well for the Blurr mould.

    Hey look, it's the real Space Adventure Cobra!
    ...sorry about the fitment issue, the smallest figure I had on hand was a Pocket Titans pilot.

    Super Go-Bots once, Cybertronians now. Old soldiers never die, my good friends.
    Still need to get that Cycle Man/CyKill I've been working on done.

    Looks nice! Maybe you can add/modify some bits to make it more Psycho-y . Like adding the rear fender fins, and redoing and repainting the car ‘Mohawk’.
    Then give him those dumb 2-prong fork hands to really pull it together haha

    Can't wait to see how Cycle Man/Cykill looks with these guys! Kinda wish we get a Cykill out of Wreck-Gar and, if it's not too late, Crasher out of POTP Jazz or SIEGE/KINGDOM Mirage. Do you have more Go-Bots x TFs? And possibly GI-Joe? Looking forward to future customs!

    Eh, it's a little late for me to do that now... except the fork hands. I really gotta look into that. :p 
    A whole ton of new GoBots would be awesome. Bug Bite and Road Ranger are great, but... I want MORE!!! :D
