Big things with little cars
Big things with little cars

This 2010 sequel brought with it (or was made to hock, to be honest) another group of figures that look really good with a bit (or more than a bit) of work. Like last time, the character's name links to a slideshow of all their pics.

Breakaway

I loved Breakaway's Russian-style splinter camo from the game, so I did a total repaint, as well as a little bit of modification so his head sits better

Landmine

I painted his robot bits steel, and did a steel drybrush of his vehicle mode too, but I'm rather proud of the detail work I did on the grenade launcher.

Ravage

Total repaint in flat black and silver, then details in steel, and new eyes from my spare decal drawer. I also modified his tail to give it more range of movement.

Long Haul

I redid all his green parts, detailed various hoses, wires and pistons, then drybrushed everything with brown, rust, and silver. I also painted his blades with transparent green.

Long Haul's unseen "Battle Mode"

Scavenger

I removed the cams in his "ankles" so the wheels spin freely in robot mode, trimmed a little bit of the buckets so his fingers are posable, and added a ball-joint neck. I also changed the way I transform his arms, so they swing back and forth rather than side-to-side. Did a full repaint in Testors Rust which was accented with silver highlights. Also redid his arms, inside and out. I then painted all the little greeblies with silver, steel, aluminum, black and gray, and gave everything a black wash.

Sideswipe

Repainted in silver, inside and out, and then I added Reprolabels set. I also modded his "feet" to be more screen accurate. This had the unfortunate effect of making him very unstable, so I've got him mounted on a #2 Gundam Stand. I though he was missing some firepower, so I added a pistol and a pair of tonfas (which I painted to look like bladed weapons) from the MSG line.

Sideswipe

Repainted his arms and legs in black and gray, then drybrushed silver, then I did his car mode in gloss black (his sides should be silver, but I didn't realize that at the time, and I don't want to start over again), then added Reprolabels.

Wheelie and Ejector

Painted Wheelie's arms and legs in steel, then detailed parts of his arms in rust and the "springs" in his legs in black. For Ejector I wrapped his toaster mode in Bare Metal Chrome foil, then painted his arms, legs and robot body gray with copper details. I also did the inside of his "mouth" in orange and the blades of his plug in silver.
