    Been working on some customs to keep busy during this Coronavirus quarantine period. Here is a simple repaint of Siege Six-Gun to Metroshot who was one of Metrotitan's minions from Transformers: Zone.

    With Maketoys Dystopia and standing in for Metrodash, TFCC FSS 5.0 Scorponok. Hopefully Hasbro will make a Slammer for Metroplex that I can repaint into Metrotank and a Micromaster Skystalker i can repaint into Metrobomb so the Metrosquad can be complete!

    Looks great! White over anything is a pain, and this turned out very nice!

    That white paint looks really good - and boy, Six-Gun looks mean in those colors.

    Great work! Makes me wish they had made a Metrotitan repaint of T30 Metroplex.

    I can’t take credit for that one, it’s a label from the Cog sticker set from toyhax.com :)

    Both your Metroshot and Cog deserve to be officiall releases.

    That Metrotitan looks bigger than I thought. Around the size of TR Trypticon. Could you fit a Diaclone like G1 Prowl inside his chest garage in car mode?

    Thanks! I was waiting for Takara to make them but decided to go for it since I had picked up the figures on sale and had time to work on them. The Maketoys Dystopia Metrotitan is shorter than TR Trypticon, about 16" to the top of his head, not including the antennas. The garage for Dystopia won't be able to fit deluxes and some Legends sized cars will barely fit - for example Takara Runamuck can squeeze in there but you won't be able to close the door with it inside, while Scamper won't fit in at all because of how wide the car mode is. Best bet is a Micromaster.

    That's the great part about Six-Gun and Cog being Weaponizers now - easy to take apart and paint! I did take apart his main body and groin (there's a couple of screws holding it together) for painting.

    Trypticon is the same height as Utopia when you stand him up correctly. Trypticon shouldn't be standing fully upright.
