    This is the first step on improving the detail of Hasbro Masterpiece Hot Rod.

    The very idea of the longer face is to diferentiate it from Hot Rod. Sanding it down like that negates the concept of having the two faces. At least in MHO.

    Looks awesome, much more toon accurate. And less "droopy-faced." :)

    Fnny enough this is one of the things I'll be doing to my MP Rodimus too. those horrible red shins HAVE to go!

    I'm also thinking of repainting both faces with boltgun metal, then highlighting with chainmail and mithril silver, to give him a lighter, but still meatallic face. I might leave Rodimus' face slightly darker though, to make him look a little more aged. Any constructive comments would be welcome

    its too grey? i'm also thinking of painting the leg panel to dark grey or black.
    the red collar and the red outer lining on the head, orange and yellow for the arms.
    the face silver
