    Here's my custom Treadshot, made from a Generations Warpath figure. Head came from the Revenge of the Fallen Whirl figure (which I had upgraded with the Headrobots Gyro kit). His gun came from Radicon member Sunlinks Armory shapeways store.
    I've wanted to make this custom ever since the Botcon 2012 Treadshot turned out to be an Armada Sideswipe/Battle in the Box Treadshot homage (which I still liked) instead of the Decepticon Actionmaster sniper (loved his cameo in LSOTW). Hoping to make Gutcruncher from Warpath next, thanks for checking this out!

    Holy crap, that's brilliant. :eek: 

    Excellent character and mold choice! It's like Treadshot was always meant to be Warpath's evil repaint, and nobody realized it... until now!! :thumb

    Nice! I've thought Warpath would make a great Treadshot for quite some time.

    Would a Shattered Glass Repaint be possible?

    Thanks for the comments and critiques guys , I really appreciate them! As for Catgut, I am trying to make him work with the figure, since the original handle is a bit too short (even for the original G1 Actionmaster), I'm thinking of making a plug that can extend the handle and give Treadshot a properly long sniper rifle.

    So cool that the gun Sunlink designed is compatible with Catgut!

    I don't have any plans for a SG repaint personally, but I'm sure the club would make him for an upcoming exclusive, especially since their future stories will be set in the mirror-verse.

    This is really awesome! I have an extra warpath and I like this idea. The head looks great too! If I had that whirl, i would got for it. Maybe I'll look for one now, haha.
