    Cool. It's no great shakes for me, the 'con label covers it up nicely and the (totally half arsed) mod will stop it happening again. Some fellas is totally wrecked though.

    I'm thinking it's a bit too big.....perhaps the more understated classics block may suit him?

    I can't find my smaller white backed Autobot labels either!! I needs to go on the hunt!

    Got home from today's morning shift to find some cantankerous old fart just sat there waiting for me...the Generations Kup I'd ordered from Amazon US!

    After a couple of Ebay near-misses I decided to just get one, dammit! (Roche's Springer needed someone to rant at him while getting the evil eye from DOTM Guzzle)
    Tell me true, guys, is the £17.69 (inc. postage) a bargain like I thought or has Wrecker-fever gotten the better of me?

    Sounds a decent price considering they are out of production now. Gonna upload a few more pics of my wreckers in a bit, so keep an eye out :)

    <- Is up.

    Yeah, um, thought I was going to bark my Yop but just fell asleep in a chair.

    Not too fragile this morning. Five pints is enough to make drunk but not enough to get me punished.

    Also, McLuskyism is a legend, too.

    Cheers, Dude, on both counts! It's just such a well characterised design, even without the iGear head IMHO.

    As to customising between you and TigerBlade here on the UK board the level of craft on display, well, makes a chap proud to be British *Sniff* Nothing. Just a bit of dust in me old, cloudy eyes...

    get this kit if you can, makes such a difference!
    ★Kup01-Kup Head Kit(Free Shipping!)

    Edit: Ironichides up!! I'm outta here:confused2 

    @seeiach if you get the igear heads you'll eat your words, seriously adds so much more character to the mold.

    Why thanks :)  glad people like the efforts between me and TB. Anyone think we should do a collaboration custom?

    ^ What Stevil said. Can't recommend the iGear head highly enough.

    Makes you wonder though how they went from that to the Bumblebee head they've teased :confused:

    [​IMG]

    nothing special here for the mech ideas guys just reprolabels.

    [​IMG]

    here is my custom guzzle which is with the chest and head upgrade kit, new arms and hands and a spiffy paint job.
    pyro is modded with a dropshot chest plate and head is a resin cast from spoonman. and the kotobukiya gattling gun with added shapeways fist attachments for springer, hes got the shapeways heels and label on chest.

    [​IMG]

    springer again, but impactor - thats the darkcave custom resin kit that he did a couple of years back.

    [​IMG]

    and lastly here we have Kup with the igear head plus gun kit they did oh and hes holding the FP Blesser as his target master, perceptor hiding in the back, Rotorstorm which is a tomahawk base figure but with new legs and lastly my FrenzyRumble custom Ironfist, yep i managed to get a custom from him!

    so there we have all of em. aside from my FP ultramagnus but everyones seen him already i suspect :)  hope you all enjoy

    Nell - I stand by my prior statement.

    Ste & Bonty - I know where you're coming from but I find the Hasbro head hits me right in the old G1 nostalgia, it really reminds me of original TF face stylings but in a more dramatic/dynamic expression than back in't day. Plus DAT LIGHT PIPING, sure - it's no Voyager Springer Matrix Blue, but straight out of the box his eyes lit up. I'm good.

    Yesterday was a good day; I ordered MP Sideswipe from Kapow and had the pleasure of meeting the following fine gents: IronicHide, Skywarp, Swoop & Fort Max & McLuskyism at Maruthi-con. *fist-bump*

    Off out for a curry now and maybe some mango pulp, have a good Saturday all.
