DeLorean Downshift Custom Action Figure
|Custom Type:||Action Figure|
|Date Added:||April 11, 2008|
|Base Figure:||Energon Downshift|
Hello everyone, this is my first custom, of which I attempted to create a more "modern" version of a DeLorean vehicle. I started with an Energon Downshift figure I picked up at the flea market. The ridge on the hood was grounded down giving it a flat shape. All four plastic wheels were removed and replaced with wheels and tires donated from a generic car from the Dollar Tree. Tabs on the inside of the gull-wing doors were cut off to allow them the ability to freely open. The grill was then sculpted to resemble a more rectangular shape. The figure was first given a flat coat of black then silver was liberally applied on everything else. Headlights were added in gold, taillights in orange and red. Lastly, a DMC logo was placed on the grill. In robot mode, the colors from the vehicle mode were carried over. The energon "combining" feature was removed and the upper chest was super glued to his torso, making it one solid piece. The center of the feet were grounded down to prevent wear. Pieces from a Dollar Tree "Chromobot" were used to give him a few weapons to fight with. Please feel free to leave any comments or suggestions.
