    So uh, not to be jerk but the white on the knees should've been on the vents at the bottom of the knees.
    Also the white on the torso's technically innacurate but I do appreciate that it's consistent with all the other MP Seekers.
    Putting that aside though it's a fantastic job. Absolutely love the trio pic and I like that you used what looks like Quakeblast's hose to simulate the hose in the show. Good job

    Cool representation of one of the lesser known individuals in the Welcoming committee.

    You're not a jerk, you're 100% right the placement of the white on the knees isn't technically right, but I though it wouldn't get seen at all where it actually should be so used artistic licensing. And the waist section, well in the cartoon still his arms covering that section so I was able to improvise :lol  Plus I though it breaks up the purple somewhat.

    Cheers for the kind words dude :) 

    Glad you like it, cheers :thumb 

    Thanks dude :)

    Is that Slipstream as your avatar? If it is that was a potential clue.
    I thought saying dude was kinda generic and non committal as to your possible gender.................I failed.

    I hope no offence was taken, Cascadia :)

    No worries about the gender issue, I get it a lot.

    As for my avatar, it is meant to be Ion Storm (the blue Rainmaker) who was once my OC.

    Awesome job dude!

    Exactly as I'd pictured him.

    Along with artistic license, my fussy requests (& probably animation errors) and your skills, he's stunning!!

    Thanks for taking on the project for me. I wouldn't even have know where to start. As soon as he's in the new set up, I'll be uploading the images.

    Cheers man

    awesome job dude! And my wife hates it when I call her dude. It's such a habit, though. Yes I use it as gender neutral at this point, hah.

    I think I'm going to have to repaint sunstorm, acid storm, Thundercracker, and get new one for hotlink. I like the camo on acid storm, but it doesn't fit the aesthetic. Now if I can get some cheap mp11 molds. Although, the BB7 are probably close to the cheapest, and they are reportedly a bit higher quality than the older versions of this mold. I have mp-11 coronation and SW along with hasbro TC, Sunstorm, and acid storm. The Takara two are a lot tighter.

    Thanks mate :) 

    Oh my, I love them pics, what an honour to have a custom in that beautiful collection of yours!! Awesome.

    Cheers dude :thumb 

    :lol  I did wrong!
    The purple is called 'Lavender G4150'

    The Takara ones do seem a bit better quality. The new BB7 ones I can't comment on, I've heard they are great, but i have no 1st hand experience of them.
    What I do know is that Acidstorms seemed better to paint than Sunstorms. Slightly different molding and better tolerances too.

    Makes sense to post these in here no? Here's a pic of the Decepticon Welcoming committee...

    [​IMG]

    It's very nice no? But, it making the pic kinda turned into a bit of an experimental project... a much more involved experimental project...

    Enjoy!
