?

Should this be Bayverse Breakdown or a new Wrecker?

    FULL DISCLOSURE TIME: I love the Bayverse Wreckers. I love NASCAR, I've always loved Twisted Metal and CarWars and all of those classic games about driving a cool car covered in weapons, and I've long held a soft spot for the Wreckers, since before they even resurfaced in 3H-era BotCon fiction.

    So the Studio Series line was a perfect storm and by god, I'm gonna paint a bunch of these fools.

    Up first is my take on Breakdown... but Breakdown didn't appear in the movies?

    No, but he got a Bot Shots toy as a redeco of Roadbuster.

    I'm very early into the process here, still haven't even laid down the white basecoat yet on half the toy, but here's a sneak peek: 64251526257__31D7D99E-2441-4379-846A-98153840B22C.JPEG

    Oh yeah.

    Here's a shot of my current "work station" with color blocking, sticker detailing, and photos of the prop cars:

    As always, the custom decals are from pattosplace.com - they’re technically slightly inaccurate to the screen car, but slashed up and reapplied like this it makes no never mind.

    Can't wait to share this one with y'all, because if you aren't first... you're last.

    I'd really like to see SS Roadbuster in this color scheme, no matter who he'll end up being.

    This is a really cool project. The bayverse wreckers were great. Maybe some of them will show up in the new movies? Really interested to see where this goes. Cant have too many nascarformers

    Update 5/18/21:

    most of the actual paint has been laid down, just needs touch ups and clear coating for the car mode.

    robot is going to need some more time and detail work to get all the decal greeble details squared away.

    help me tom cruise

    Looking great! I love all of the decals on his alt mode. And honestly, I’d buy an official release of this deco.

    The quality content that we all have TFW accounts for. Awesome. My recommendation would be to call him “Slashmark,” since the RiD2015 Breakdown substitute is called that. That way you have the character homage already in there, but don’t have to call him Breakdown if you don’t feel like it is enough like your ideal Breakdown. Anyway, very cool. Would love to see the Red Bull Kasey Kayne car as a Stunticon as well.

    Edit: If you make this a Wrecker you could reuse a G1 Action Master or Micromaster name maybe.

    Once again, credit where credit is due - the decals are by Patto from pattosplace.com which is an absolute godsend for any sort of real-world racing car modeling, especially NASCAR.

    I purposely look for customs of them. Love to get back into them, in honesty. Whilst basic, to me they were fun to have around. Not only that, they had intriguing ideas, some a bit goofy but intriguing nonetheless.
