    This has probably been done to death, but I don't care because now I have one of my favorite characters as one of my favorite molds. I know I've seen Hailstorms head used like this before, so whoever did that, thank you for the inspiration.

    This probably the simplest custom I've done, but it's also one of my favorites. I just masked off his door panels and rattle-canned them white, gave him some metallic purple highlights, and swapped in Hailstorm's head. Also, TFP Kup's guns go really well with the vehicon arms, they can fold up and still hold them so it looks like his arms have shifted into guns which I always like.

    My lofty goal is to make a light bar for him that can come off and serve as a gun. My even loftier goal is to relearn 3D and make it a shapeways part.

    The look you are going for with the new head and paintjob fits nicely. Try to grab a lughtbar from a classics prowl, that should do the trick. Cant wait to see more progress.
