    You guys asked for it and here it is the trifecta complete!

    I used Hotshot as my base and removed all of his flame paint apps. He was then sprayed with red and then I handpainted (so damn aggrivating) the white stripe.

    His head is a copied Drift face made of super sculpty rubber placed inside a Smokescreen Kreon helmet. I gave him various other details and eneded up using to shades of red on him, a darker red for the exterior auto mode, then I matched the factory red to liven him up in bot mode.

    Brilliant! I love that you used the Kreon helmet too... :thumb 

    My only criticism is that the print of the door numbers is too "crunchy" looking. You can totally see the printer lines on it, and it throws things off a little. But the rest is magic. :)

    I love this! And yeah, I don't know why the stripe is such a pita to do, I had the same problem on mine.

    Agreed. Some better decals would make this a perfect custom. Great work!

    Its funny how this mold looks better with figures it wasn't designed to be with. This is ten times better than Bumblebee.

    Probably the best custom Prime head I've seen.

    This is great. The labels are an eyesore (they are a bit too big as is the Autobot symbol on the roof), but that's already been mentioned. I'd like to see some dry brushing on the robot parts since the gun has some nice dry brushing on it.

    I believe the term is 'rastorized'. That jaggy line that you see when something has been printed from a low rez digital copy. Or at least I think that's what you're talking about.

    This is correct. "Pixelated" would also be applicable.
