    EDIT: UPDATE ON PAGE 5


    Yeah, I've been getting lazy with my Menasor Project, so I've decided to put the original project on hiatus until I can get another HFTD Optimus Prime.


    So anyway, I have been rather intrigued with the Dreads. When I first heard about them, I thought the three SUV's would be clones. I was glad to be wrong. However, like many of you here, I was disappointed that there would be no Deluxe(or in our dreams, Voyager) Crowbar or Hatchet. So basically as the thread title implies, I filled in the gap and made the other two.


    Crankcase:
    -I didn't do much with him except to screw up a part of his face for battle damage. I also broke off his dreadlocks while transforming him. However that's okay, because it helped with Hatchet.


    Crowbar:
    -Crowbar was slightly more complicated. I took a scrapped ROTF Rampage's treads and cut them to make his dreadlocks. He's gonna have a full Stealth force mode at some point later, but I took DOTM Skyhammer's MechTech and glued the gun barrels next to his front wheels; he now has twin guns on his forearms. I also changed the head a bit by repositioning the mouth and gluing HFTD Insecticon's mandibles to his head.


    Hatchet:
    -This one was a bitch to make. First, I took an extra Crankcase's toes, chest, MechTech, and eyes to make the face. I also used part of a Cyberverse Orbital Assault Carrier to make his jaw. His tail is from DOTM Laserbeak and his spine is from Ravage, albeit severely cut down. It took several tries to get everything to fit. For this reason, he lacks a chest. I also modded the legs to be digitigrade and kept the crotch untransformed. I considered using two of Crankcase's MechTech weapon for Hatchet's claws. For now that ain't happening. He was also gonna lack dreads cause I couldn't find extras; then Crankcase's snapped off.



    I'm not going to paint these, mostly because I lack the skills and I also know don't know which brand to use.

    Taking existing molds and truly doing an extremely heavy retool on every piece! All the while retaining their alt modes! :thumb

    Why couldn't Hasbro do this instead of giving us two unique molds for Skids and Mudflap.

    Great job.

    I believe it only rotates side to side.
