    So I got this idea in my head and I went with it. Just a TFC Gumball painted and modded a little.I removed the lights from his legs and attached them to his new back.His chest is actually Gumballs back and vice-versa. Still have to add the decals and new head and he'll be ready to lead his new team.......

    Excellent work so far, and exactly how I pictured a custom Barricade from TFC Gumball would look (with LazyAza's backward configuration for the chest). Did you manage to swap his hands so they aren't upside down either? I was personally going to suggest HFTD Hailstorm's head for this mold but that uses a ball joint socket rather than a swivel (which Gumball uses, I believe). Slap some Reprolabels and we've got a winner!

    Looking at Gumball, and for some reason I keep feeling that mold would really work for Minerva

    Tell me you're going to make Smolder one of his team members.

    Thanks!!!


    Thanks. I think that head is still to movie looking for me so my bud is doing a more classics style.


    Thanks. Yeah I swapped the hands and the elbow joints around


    Thank you


    I think you posted this in my Streetwise thread and I had to look her up because I'm not a big fan of the Japanese characters,but I see what you're talking about. I might try it.


    I can't say anything related to the team just yet.Just curious,why Smolder?

    Because Smolder needs more love and is another rescue vehicle Decepticon, I'd say.
