Hot Rod Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:48112  
Name:Hot Rod
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Transformers
Creator:Jin Saotome  
Date Added:March 18, 2013
Base Figure:TF Prime Vehicon
Height:6.00 inches
Hot Rod is here once again to take on the Decepticons! I really liked the Vehicon design in bot and alt mode so I went to figure out who else could benefit from it. The base for this custom Hot Rod is of course a Vehicon with a PCC Skyburst head, scout Dead End hands (they snap right in as does the head) side pipes from a Cybertron Swerve, and spoiler off some non-tf vehicle. Hot Rod was painted with metallic red Testors one coat Lacquer as his base and sealed with their Wet Look one coat lacquer clear which really holds up in terms of durability. I had to drill down the chest window pegs behind his armpits to get it to pop off so I could paint it and change the symbol. Anyone making this custom could alternately paint over the chest window with yellow as it kinda looks like his chest flames too.

It really amazes me when I see customs that can hold up paintwise and transform. Looks really great!

Wow, I knew I couldn't have been the only one who saw the potential for this base for Hot Rod / Rodimus. Yours turned out way better than mine! I couldn't think of a good way to give him the pipes so I gave him cyber verse scale blasters. Excellent work!

Ooh, I see yours! Love the chest flames and how you made the Rodimus head from the Vehicon head.
