I never really felt there was many options for a modern take on Nightbeat, the kit for the Hasbro was an ok option but wanted something more masterpiece size. I had already used this Optimus prime mold for an old Emirate Xarron that was an early custom and now I have one more to a generations scale it was spare, had a few areas that matched Nightbeats and a good amount of articulation. I used some spare off cuts from foc Blaster for his legs and shoulders, brought his feet up and beefed them out, even had a go at light piping with some spare spru although the results were not great. A lot of the head was done with a soldering iron and hot glue. Below is the stages it took to build him up plus research for what I was going for.
