Blackout (Transformers - Movie) Custom Action Figure
Yet another TF Custom. I'm all out of TF figures now though. OK, taking inspiration from Jin Saotome's blackout, I loaded this guy up with accessories galore. The more accessories/weapons, the better. First, I gave him a basecoat of a blue/gray mixture. Then a wash of that same mixture and black. Then another wash of testors dark gray. Then some weathering effects using testors neutral gray and sullen gray. Silver drybrushing on robotic parts followed up by gold and copper details. The labels came from Reprolabels (they're actually decals, not dry-rub transfers like I thought, so you don't need to seal them.) The mini-gun, shoulder rocket launcher and flames were from ML War Machine. The machine gun came from the fodder bin. The two smaller shoulder launchers came from a Kid's Connection set from Wal-Mart. The chest turret was made from two hinges off of a TF Movie Jazz figure (the ones that connect the wheels to the shoulders), and TF Wreckage's vehicle-mode-gun. The EMP cannon was a 5 inch Ironman gun with a JLU Superman super-breath accessory painted clear blue and highlighted with white. The spinning rotor attachment was made using the rotor from a TF Fast Action Blackout. All the arm attachments attach via magnets. Whew!
