    This is my TRON Legacy Rinzler/Tron.

    The inspiration for this bash was the similarities between Cybertronian Bumblebee’s ALT mode and TRON vehicles. My idea was that since after Rinzler remembered being Tron and sunk into the Sea of Simulation, he re-energized blue; so my story is that he survived and managed to get to Flynn’s hideout, where Flynn had developed a way for a program to integrate directly with vehicles. Placing his identity disc onto the vehicle Tron fused with the vehicle and transformed.

    I used both Cybertronian Bumblebees for this bash. I used Generations Rage over Cybertron Bumblebee for all the yellow and blue parts particularly for the blue line detailing on his roof and blue arm blades. I used Generations Cybertronian Bumblebee for all of the dark gray parts to replace the light gray ones. This mold was one of the most annoying parts swapping I’ve ever done. I used the head from a Rinzler 3 inch figure and used the identity disc from that figure. The identity disc attaches to the vehicle and is removable. For his light disc weapon, I removed the front wheel’s hubcap (which is still re-attachable) and he holds it. He also still has his gun and blue plastic arm blades. For his vehicle mode, I am orienting him backwards with the rear window instead being his windshield and the original headlights now being where the light ribbons/jetwalls emanate from.

    I used Testors enamels to paint him. Colors used were flat black, flat white and a custom blended light blue. I then used Krylon Matte Finish spray to flatten the colors and protect the paint.

    :lol  Spoilers?
    The movie came out in 2010 and it's not like that was a "sixth sense" level twist.

    Very cool! The colors work great together, that blue really pops against black.

    Thanks to everyone for all the compliments. After years of hearing how I needed to work on my detailing and how 'thick' my paint always was, it feels good to be improving.

    :lolol  Ofcourse, with a character that is nearly entirely black, you better be spot on with the detailing.:lol 

    Thanks, this blue is the same one I used for my Classics RID Scourge. It really does pop against dark colors. I am very happy with this custom color and regret that I didn't blend more of it at the time because now there is only enough left for touch-ups.
