    I never really watched much of the Cybertron cartoon (we changed TV providers so lost track after the first few episodes) but I did like some of the designs, and I did have a few figures from the line. I always liked the design of Cybertron Defense Hot Shot though I never had the figure. So when I saw the Generations Selects figure was based off of that original figure I had to get it!

    I always liked the knife feature of the original toy so I used a Knife from a kotibukiya weapon set I got from a few years ago and painted it up to look like the one that came with the original figure. I replaced the handle with a 5mm handle (used a plastic crazy straw). I also removed the battle damage paint and repainted small parts of the figure using Vallejo Metal Color Magnesium for various details, as well as repainting his face using Citadel's new Contrast paints, specifically Apothecary white, I used Iyanden Yellow contrast for his head visor. Still getting to grips with the contrast paints but I think it came out okay.

    Also got a new phone so testing out the camera's so the colours don't seem as vibrant as the figure actually is.

    I like that, looks great. Never watched the show, but liked the original armored car design, as well as this updated version.
