    well here is my custom 57 chevy Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime. took awhile to figure out the spoiler , wanted to put it on his back but couldnt without partsforming so had to put it on his legs. paint is still a little sloppy but ill clean it up eventually. thanks for looking :D 
    story:
    tired of Rodimus always foiling his plans, Galvatron devises a plan to rid him of the bothersome pest for good. he and the other decepticons create a time machine that is designed to send you back in time for good. they lure Rodimus into the trap by using a hologram of Cyclonus trying to kill Daniel. Rodimus falls for it and is instantly sent to the year 1957, knowing he would stick out like a sore thumb he scans a 57 Chevy Bel air to better blend in. He secretly searches for a way back to the present time before things get worse.

    From Walgreens if I am not mistaken. I like that mold and the silver one, the rest are meh. It's too bad these things are so out of scale with anything Transformers (well, might look OK next to Battle Ops Bee). If they were deluxe scale, I would be all over them for bashing.

    thank you sir :thumb 
    yeah it really is a great base mold. the face was a blank with no fetures at all
    so i basically had to make Rodimus's face from scratch lol but other than that its a great mold
    agreed and well it is almost at masterpiece scale but not quite and is too big for an alternator. guess ill display him as a stand-alone lol

    it is one of those Mars Converters that can be found in most walgreens and rite aids. its the red one with the white top. they really are fairly nice molds.

    I bought this mold and was planning to do the same thing. Looks nice. The only thing I would have done different would be to make his wing detach and sit on his back in bot mode or get rid of the wing all together.

    i am thinking about doing that . originally i wanted it to be no parts-forming but it looks like theres no way around it so i am going to fashion some sort of peg to attach it to his back for bot mode :D
