    Me: "I'm not gonna buy Highbrow."
    Also me: "But it's only $9.88..."
    Also also me: "What if you turn it into Captain America?"
    Me: "Well...crap."
    Also me: "You mean 'Cap'."

    SO, I did just enough paint work to justify the purchase. Added a few stickers too. Definitely needs more work on the robot mode. Don't really like the red bits I added, and need to do something about all that blue on the legs. I hardly touched the vehicle mode, but I'm kind of ok with it.
    I also need to get some kind of shield weapon. And a clever name.
    I'm happy to take suggestions on all of the above!

    Give it an under-slung radar dome, like this.

    nice, although i think the fleshtone robot face looks a little creepy. maybe just make it straight robotic (ie gray)?

    Ooh! In the meantime: IMG_0707.jpg


    I was thinking of keeping it the same gray that it was before, but wanted to help differentiate it from Highbrow. But I agree - it's not really working. Maybe silver? I'll work on that.

    I'm still trying to figure out something that'll work (without buying a Cap figure just for the shield). In the mean time, I have AOE Bee's spiky star things (which certainly aren't big enough) with stickers on them:

    If any one has any ideas for a shield, let me know!

    Personally, I think those work fine, but if there were forearm-mounting ports it would be better (I don't have the figure so I don't know if there are).

    I've definitely thought about it.
    One thing that made this custom so stupid easy is that it already came in Cap's colors. If future waves have matching/similar colors to the rest of the team, then I'm all in.

    Hardhead as Warmachine? Shoulder cannon helps.

    I think the shields you have are just fine. They add a robotic element where a smooth dome shield would possibly be out of place.
