    The Decepticon Police is here once more! Barricade based from his appearance from the Last Knight. Starting out as a normal Barricade, I redid all the stock looking flat dark blue color to a lighter metallic blue that deeply brings out both car mode and robot mode. Along with that I kept close to the model rendering of barricade with gun metal robotic pieces I gave him much needed detail that the stock version missed out. minored weathering can be found throughout robot mode. Barricade has been fitted with the original head design and has been painted to follow the color scheme. Additional Decals were added showcasing police logo and car number as well as touches of Autobot engeron found on his knuckles and nightstick.

    I love the little added touch of Energon splattered on the nightstick. Great work!

    Amazing, although personally, I prefer the stock head.

    Looks great.

    Odd question however....do the back of the thighs scrape and chip when you transform it?

    I tried to paint up my figure and found that I couldn't get the proper clearance when transforming it, and the back of the thighs kept scraping off paint when the arms folded into it.

    Amazing.

    What's your process for doing your customs? Saw your Nitro Zeus thread as well.

    Priming?
    Airbrush?
    Dry brushing?
    Do you mask off the areas or are you just very good with the brush?

    Thank you
