    Just finished this guy up after having him sit on my work bench from the first week of release. He was done in Generation One inspired coloring in flat paints. He also features LED eyes, which were a complete pain in arse to complete, and a modified rifle with better hand placement and LED installed.

    Awesome paint work, and the Led eyes are icing on the cake, not sure about a shotgun having a blue light though, but a cool addition none the less!

    I want to pass on this figure, but every custom I see drives me toward a purchase. Well done! Love the LEDs.

    Yeah, I'm having the same issue :/ on the one hand I don't collect movie figures, on the other this guy is inspiring me to make a Four Horsemen set and paint him up as Pestilence (Toxitron), and on the third I REALLY just wanna throw a faceplate on him with a slick G1 paint job....

    love what you did here! I have to agree with some of the other here. I was very serious about skipping this figure all together but the more I see it the more I want it. I love the combination of g1/bay transformers in this. I would totally want a face plated version though

    This is one of the best customs I have ever seen. There are so many impressive features going on here. I am particularly amazed with what you did with the hands. The pain job adding emphasis to the joints is stunning. Any chance this guy will end up on eBay someday?
