Overhaul-More Pics Added!!!!

So this was my first ever custom,it was done as a more or less prototype for the final product,I did digibashes(don't have them anymore due to a Harddrive crash on my laptop),liked the color layouts I did with those.So I then bought two of the Cybertron Downshift figures and set to work.

So some keypoints to point out are:
  • Entirely handbrushed-At the time I thought it was a good idea,but after talking with other veteran customizers I then realized it was a horrible idea.

  • Straight up repaint-My Overhaul character is NOT a clone of Cyb Downshift,in fact he transforms into a 1969 Dodge Charger and his helmet design is identical to G1 Megatron's,for those of you that have taken apart a Downshift know how hard it is to get his head off,it's almost down right impossible.

  • Weapons-At this time he only has one weapon and that was taken from Universe 2.0 Dirge.

I have plans on revisting this figure when I finally get my hands on the TFTM07 Big Daddy figure,I plan on using Tamiya paints and finally doing a head swap.

Onto the pictures(No vehicle mode pictures due to the fact that the paint chips when I transform him:
