    A repaint using the Breakaway mould and the Nightbeat head because I associate Siren more with the Marvel Comics iteration than the actual toy. I need to learn to mask better too, cleaning up over spray is a pain.

    Where are his hands? o_O 
    But looks pretty cool. Did you use gold and metallic red on the middle of the hood or is that a color changing paint?

    Just a darker shade of red but I did use gold/brass as a nod back to the original toy the hands had not been painted, they've been reattached since that photo was taken. Just stripping the paint from the loudmouth titan master and then he'll be done.

    One of those 3rd party gundam add on kits that you can get from hobby shops, can't remember the brand though.

    Breakaway is a blank canvas for customizers. I myself have made three characters out of that figure.

    Now that I see this, we should have gotten that instead of Getaway...

    Very nice. I like that you used the Nightbeat Titanmaster. It gives him a younger look since Siren is one of the younger Autobots.

    Nice choice to use Getaway. G1 Siren and Getaway were both based on the same car.

    If I can ever find a suitable head, I'd love to customise POTP Windcharger as several characters: Siren, Nightbeat, Flame, Lightspeed, Hyperdrive and Roadhandler.

    Again, very nice job.

    Pretty much finished save for the tyres and panel lining.
