    This dude is an homage to one of my old Alternator customs from back in the day.
    Same recipe, RTS Jazz donated his body. The arm guns are from IDW/Generations Skids mold. The head is FOC Shockwave with a ball socket added to it for better pose-ability. Replaced the exhaust tips with a different set, made from the taillights of Alternators Optimus Prime. The front end grill area was opened up for the big ol’ turbo, stolen from the chest of Siege Starscream.

    Paint is a mix of safety orange, translucent red, and gloss black.

    I like the paint effect. Looks like the paint is bubbling.

    AMAZING!

    One bit of criticism: the paint looks a little rusted out. I don't know if it's the away it was applied, or something, but poor Torch looks like he was dumped in a lake, dragged to the beach, and left out for a couple million years.

    It does work if you don't know that he's a character (like me!). He has a sort of "monster"ish vibe, like some sort of wild Cybertronian who is going to hunt your poor ass down and kill you with his gun fingers.
