    Hey gang! After taking too long on my Hotshot custom, I figured I would do a nice, quick repaint. Here's my take on the G1 Sparkabot, Sizzle! With the release of the excellent PotP Windcharger, the previous Generations Windcharger got moved off my collection shelf. BUT, I really liked the mold and wanted it to stay in the collection, so I turned it into another G1 character that I don't expect to get an official release. The only physical mod I did on this figure was adding the oversized engine block sticking out of the hood.
    Thanks for taking a look, let me know what you think!

    Amazing what a well executed paint job can do to change a character. At first thought you might try and fiddle to get the hood to flip onto the back like the original toy, but definitly dig the final updated/cleaner look! Stellar as always :thumb

    Very nice. Strangely enough I was considering customising a Sizzle this week myself but from the Clocker mold.
