Don't Tap Out by Jin-Saotome Don't Tap Out by Jin-Saotome
According to the Transformers Wiki, Tap-Out was once a long time prisoner of the Decepticons and mastered some incredible grappling/hand-to-hand combat skills. I thought that was pretty cool, a wrestler/melee fighter Autobot! Soooo, here he is. Tap Out was made from a Generations Drift with the spoiler removed and the feet modded. To get them like that you have to remove the toe and cut a groove where the front of the foot can continue to fold back, that's about it. Now he has a nifty hoof-look. I used a WFC Cliffjumper head for him and gave him articulated hands from a Revoltech Black Ox so he could wrestle with some Decepticons. A paintjob and gloss sealing later, Tap-Out was finished!

Ohhhhh. It took me a while to realize he had "hoofs" before I read your notes.

Revoltech Black Ox....the Tetsujin-28/Gigantor baddie? Looks a bit like a black Getter?

Any plans on doing a Glyph? Tap-out was her body guard for some time.

Looks really nice. Do you ever try to apply any washes to give the panel/recessed detail some more life, or is it mostly just drybrushing? I've noticed a lot of the Transformer customizers I watch tend to avoid this and I'm not sure why.

All the panels/tech you see on Tap-Out here are paint washed/wiped. I left the gloss to provide highlights this time instead of drybrushing.
