    Hi guys! So I actually made this guy quite a while ago, but recently saw @Yautja's custom Slammer made from a CW Rook and was motivated to take some pics of mine with my crappy potato cam on my phone. (Sorry about that. :/ )

    Anyway this guy was made from one of four CW Brawls I got way back because I could tell it'd be really versatile for customs. Base coated with Rustoleum white primer, lots of Tamiya XF-56 Metallic Gray everywhere, and various other colors for minor details. Gave him Red Alert's Scatterblaster since I already had a better Scatterblaster ready for Red Alert from Shapeways. All he's missing is Reprolabels insignias on the chest and turret, and maybe different weapons.

    Gave him a green crest on his forehead because I was in a bit of a Brave mood when I did the visor.

    Below the chest, he's actually got incredible articulation, good enough to compare to WFC IMO. Arms and head are a bit underwhelming but they get the job done.

    I also did some weathering on him because I actually like the idea of it. (Though I didn't mean to make it as bad as it is on actual Suege figures. :lol  I think the tread skirts turned out well, at least.)

    Also, I gave him some slanted "angry" optics on his turret as an homage to the Russian MBT T90's terrifying "eyes."

    Considering doing the main gun in white but I like the contrast the black adds.

    I actually don't have Sixgun yet, but here he is with some other Suege bots.

    Thanks for checking him out, I normally don't take photos of my figures because I only have a potato to take them with... :redface2:  Hope you like him! :)

    Neat! Almost looks like a SG Brawl.

    Did you mod the waist somehow? It looks better than i remember the stock figure being. Nice job on the weathering

    Great work, man, and nice pics :thumb 
    For stickers I'd recommend Reprolabels' Symbols for Micro Transformers.

    The waist is actually completely unchanged. It's a little flimsy but the boards have exaggerated how bad it is so much, you remember everyone hated it more that the figure itself.
