Clampdown, Tigertracks, Deep Cover...mount up!
How did you come by these???????
They're super cool....
The Off Road Patrol are a fairly decent Micromaster set.
Highjump and Powertrain are both original molds with designs and colors that are very reminiscent of their G1 counterparts.
Powertrain is a bit more stunted in his poseability than Highjump, but it’s about standard with the other Micromasters. But they’re still pretty fun little figures. Besides what they lack in poseability......
......they really make up for in design and color. These little bots really pop and Hasbro did not skimp on the paint with these two. Quite possibly the best detailed Micromasters in the line.
Like all the other Siege Micromaster Patrols, I really wish Hasbro had released the entire original 4 members. But at least with this set, they gave us my favorite two from the Off-Road Patrol. Powertrain and Highjump are pretty cool little bots.
With excellent paint jobs!
Took apart the head and gave Magnus his yellow eyes, as seen in Dreamwave's comics as well as a subtle carryover into the robot form from his God Magnus inspired vehicle mode.
Yup, customs. I used them to practice.
I got the Rainmaker 3 pack Saturday for 30% off and I love them in all their neon glory! Especially Acidstorm. I've tried to give each Seeker a different method of wielding their null rays to give them a bit of personality which has resulted in me creating a new headcanon for these guys. I decided to lean into the "rain maker" concept by making them long range artillery experts. Acidstorm's null ray placement might be slightly inspired by Boba Fett's missile launcher.
My Seekers so far:
I gotta ask, is that red paint or dye you used on Ratchet's pelvis and hands?
It's amazing how much a deco tweak can make a figure look more like the character it's supposed to be. I don't know why Hasbro though random red rectangles all over the figure made any kind of sense.
It's dye, a little too much in pursuit of an even tone to be honest but he'll do.
Prising apart his pants was the hard part, to quote Egg Shen,"It wasn't easy!"
Looks amazing. Sorry for being an amateur asking, whats a dye and how do you apply it?
The hero, triumphant!
Had a feeling, MrUniqZ over in Radicons did the same thing, though according to them they didn't pry the crotch apart, they just dyed the entire combined part as is. Both your results look great either way.
May I ask which specific dye you used and how specifically you went about the process? I plan on doing this myself but I've never dyed a figure before.
Feelin the bot mode, alt mode can't tell if he's coming or going but as good as he looks there's something about the classics silhouette.
So that's why I can't find a Sideswipe.
Got alt mode pics?
"It would be logical for you to surrender."
"Not my diagnosis! You don't have to do this, Shockwave! If YOU surrendered, I could restore your face and left hand!"
"It is much too late for that now. Trying to appeal to my sentimentality will get you nowhere, doctor."
crazy thing is I kinda want to do all three again when I have time to make a perfected set . Ollie’s where are you at . And to answer someone on Dye for Ratchet...Rit has cherry red and race red. I used Cherry red..low boil for 20 minutes. Soak for 40. You only need a few pours to get a good deep stain. Don’t dump the bottle into the water.
I think another member showed Sideswipe/Alerts plastic taking to the dye also.
