--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This little guy hasnt gotten much revitalization over the past few years so I gave him a modern day upgrade.

I used an activators Prime as the base and went to work from there. I started by removing the head and reworking it into more of a Pipes look. I went with a more serious look for hinm for 2 reasons 1) Hes a truck and should be tough looking, and 2) Hes really POed since he got the shaft for so long!

As always he was based flat black then painted over with Enchanted blue, Blood Red and Mithral Silver.

The pipes are mortar canons from a plastic army man set. they have been modified to attach as smoke stacks or as arm canons.

Absolutely brilliant, I agree that Pipes doesn't get enough love. I think your execution was flawless except for one little quibble--the ends of the smokestacks, where I presume you cut them, are kinda rough/unfinished looking, I'd sand them a bit to get a smoother/nicer finish to match the rest of the figure.
