    So I saw this really sweet (brilliant actually) digibash fellow board member Jolt the Volt:
    Digibash: - TLK Toy Ideas and Repaints.
    And I really wanted to try it. I really loved Mohawk as a concept and a character, and I really wanted a figure of him in some capacity. Originally I was going to use the Brimstone mode (I may still do it just to do another version.), but then I saw Jolt's version...needless to say it changed my mind.

    Enjoy mates:

    The base fig is from the human alliance line, isn't it?

    Yep that's Human Alliance Tailpipe, with modded arms and head. 6292086796_0060664c72_b.jpg
    Upon closer inspection I believe those are AOE/TLK Strafe's forearms The-Last-Knight-Deluxe-Strafe.jpg

    Solid work. I love that you used a HA figure as the base.

    Wow duder! This is simply fantastic. Your paint work has gone through the roof.

    I actually like this mold, it's one of the few motorcycle bots that looks good in both modes.

    Wow! Very cool! I used the Brimstone mold like a lot of people are. However, I think the Reverb mold would work well as well. Never considered this guy!

    Amazing work man, You really made this mold stand out even more. May I ask what arms you used for this?
