Classics Rodimus Prime (Non-FP) [WIP]

Well I announced it yesterday I was so happy with the outcome of Rodimus:
Cybertron Rodimus [COMPLETED!]
I just had to go on with step2... The Prime edition...
Just 7hours later here we are, call it whatever you want...
Energon / Cybertron / Classics... I don't care
This will fill in the gap in my Classics Collection that's for sure!

C&C Welcome....

MODS: (to much I'm afraid, so for now no TUT )
-mixed Energon Rodimus with Cybertron Excellion
-I haven't painted anything yet !!! these shades match up well

TODO:
-work on the hands (prolly cut away a section and mount some)
-design the altmode (hoping I can find one, I already have some plans)

is a larger head really needed? this one is already on a balljoint so that was easy

UPDATE1:
Man looks like all the leftover Energon Rodimus Prime are just made for this!!!!
the wings just slide in without modding??? I'm gonna try alt mode tomorrow!
(btw 2nd picture is a modded Classics Jetfire helmet with a digibash color what do you guys think?)

UPDATE2:
Revision2 I had a major problem with shoulder articulation and this way all work so super easy... I loved Rev.1 but after getting used to Rev.2 I think this will be the final R.Prime botmode... the head from Rev.1 will be the regular Rodimus head this head is a regular rid prime minor head without antenea and some face thingy from a locomotive robot

UPDATE3:
Well it's driving me mad trying to work out a alt-mode, without little extra modding...
But I do have something to show... what do you guys think?

UPDATE4:
Still looks like sh*t but it smells less now considering I have no leftover pieces
No seriously I think I could life with this alt-mode... It's kinda oddly, strangely cool
I might throw in a little bonus and let the armor pieces form the vehicle mode from Energon rodimus
Guess that's better than leaving them in the drawer although on my display it will stay in Prime-mode

UPDATE4B:
Ok guys so I have 2 alt-mode and I need to chose 1 (for making the connections)
and I have 2 Robot Rodimus Prime modes which work both.... BUT!!!
Which should I chose as final???? I have a hard time making up my mind
I like steroid Roddy (yes he wil get fists if he gets preferred)...
and like my version2 also... since it flows better proportion wise I guess!

Crazy work man.

Fact: Energon Rodimus was my first tf and the Cybertron Hot Shot mold made me collect more figures.

You've combined my childhood into one fig.

I think the alt mode will be the make-it-or-break it on this one. Combining all the best bits of the AEC Rodimi is a brilliant notion, but can he remain a viable *transformer* at the end of the day?

Great idea though!

Even if it cannot transform, this is looking epic.

any way you can shorten the matrix chain? it's dangling near Rodimus' crotch : D

Looks great! Rodimus on Steroids!
And as the time goes by and all that we have left,
are moments we regret, moments we forget.
