    Base mold: TFP Wheeljack
    Modification: Cut off the ears...

    Needed: Dr Wu's open face head mold for this custom! (assistance welcomed). ;) 


    Transformers Prime HOTROD

    So, I figured I would try my hand at a complete 100% custom repaint, and I decided to go with a deluxe class figure.
    Through trial and error in creating a decent representation of Hotrod from previous generations, here is my first complete repaint of a figure!

    One day, I'll be a Prime... I'm just not tall enough!

    Throwback! haha.

    There's another potential...​

    That alt mode rocks. I'd like to see a customized Dr. Wu head used on this though.

    That point job is fantastic. I'm not sure it's Rodimus but it is awesome. That head is definitely not Rodimus.

    I dig it, and really nice work, despite being your first(!) repaint.

    A new head would do wonders...the Dr. Wu would work, but that is still so distinctively Wheeljack, I wonder if there is some other option.

    Great first custom! Lemme guess, what you meant by potential in your last shot with Magnus, you were thinking of making rodimus prime out of him?

    Thank you for all the feedback everyone! I really do need to track down the Dr. Wu Wheeljack head... if anyone can help point me in a direction to find one!

    I like the head design, minus the ear wings which I will cut off should one come my way.

    I may work on the Ultra Magnus, but I want to nail down my FE Prime repaint first!

    I love how slick and modern that alt mode looks! though i don't think the head fits, even with a Dr. Wu face... i think maybe an AM Smokescreen head might work. but i love the paintjob on this!
