    This was just a quick project as I was thinking about selling this figure.
    I realise that Toxitron is supposed to be a prime body but I like the color scheme and want to do a sceptic type truck. I actually think the head kinda looks like primes.

    Not my best work, and I accidentally primered the windows, then tried to clean them with moderate success. So Toxitron is hot boxing the truck. Im pretty happy with it overall.

    Let me know what you think!

    I REALLY like the assemblage of stuff in the truck bed - it looks just enough like some kind of equipment that it doesn't look like he's hauling a pile of robot guns, and just enough like robot guns that it doesn't look like he's got a bunch of random junk strapped to his forearm.

    Nicely done.

    The accidental fogged up windows actually helps the acidic look

    Nice. It looks like the fleet lawncare & pest control service trucks driving around down here in SWFL, which is a whole lot sneakier for infiltration than a giant green semi tractor.

    Thanks a lot! As long as it doesn't look like some super glue caps, couple of pens, lego and other scrap lol.

    Thanks

    Same, I don't really care for the movies but its a good chance to practice painting. Thanks.

    Cool. Thanks, I'm going to leave it as is.

    It would be cool to add some stickers from a business.

    Ya its definitely a cool mold.

    Thank you.

    Thanks. Wanted the "toxic flame thrower" to be unique.

    Thannk you!

    Amazing! One thing that would perfectly tie this whole thing up would be a few piping company stickers on the sides and front, other than that it's perfect!

    Awesome work! I don’t know the figure, but it looks so good.

    I have some unasked-for advice: printable shipping labels! If you don’t mind a white outline, you can grab (or make) any kind of sticker you need to parody or have made. So long as there’s a good enough image out there, it’s reasonably easy. My biggest issue was sizing them right in Microsoft Word because I apparently go full stupid with this.

    I apply a layer of scotch tape before trimming to keep the faux-sticker shiny and protected. Here’s a few samples:
