    another commission for a local member,the idea of using the silas from the ss/bb/dvd set was all his.
    i have to admit though,i haven't been keeping up to date with all the new prime episodes,which is why he provided me with some screen shots to work with and go by.
    the metallic blue on him is a custom mixed color made of tamiya metallic blue x-13 and tamiya blue x-4.
    the dark grey on him is one off mix also of tamiya flat black xf-1 and tamiya chrome silver x-11.
    the lighter grey is a mix of tamiya sky grey xf-19 and tamiya chrome silver xf-11 again.

    the little statue of silas was essentially butchered,then fused inside of breakdown's chest.
    his head can turn left or right now thanks to a steel pin.because of him being where he is now,breakdown's chest doesn't fold up and in for bot mode anymore.

    during the rebuild of this bot,i actually had to take pics of it along the way to know what went where as i don't even have this fig for myself yet.

    While I like the concept this just looks a little silly. Silas needs to be way smaller. Just my opinion

    Man that's creepy!

    The CyLAS Breakdown retool coming up from Takara actually did something like this... albeit the sculpted Sylas is significantly smaller.

    Still, it's a nice touch to what looks to be a far more accurate rendition than the upcoming retool. (Which is a Black Repaint that has a few nods to the in-show model.)

    Silas looks wierd with having just his head inside the chest. Plus his eyes look like they're bugged oit.

    the custom itself is extremely awesome. but Silas i think should be in the form of a small figurine with the circuitry from the screenshot rather than just his head. After all the character should be proportionate to the transformer. But all things considered the fact that you left him transformable AND gave the option for opening the panel for a view of the silas figure is unbelievable and cool!!!!! i wouldnt know how to do this.

    Cool, though the second picture almost looks like it could of been Knockout's final results for him.

    That looks awesome. Just wondering, does that mis-transformation of the bumper have to be that way to incorporate the Silas within him?

    May I recommend you consider using a Mega Bloks Figure instead?

    I really enjoy this. What makes it is Silas' constant "THIS ACID IS TRIPPING ME THE FUCK OUT" face.
