    Hey

    Got these guys recently and had to change them a little to add to my alt Collection. They are intended to represent Groove, Wheelie, Ransack and Afterburner (who is a pain to try to de-feminise)

    Comments appreciated

    Regards

    JL

    Just one tip;can you paint Wheelies head orange?That way he looks less like the figure he being customized from.

    Actually, if you could find a way to swap in a head from Energon Strongarm (or one of his many repaints) you'd be all set for a perfect Wheelie head.

    Arguably Afterburner is more orange in colour, and actually looks a lot like Lugnutz to begin with (similar face, aggressive snarl on face, even has a flame deco!). And a Harley fits Afterburner's personality very well (even if it doesn't seem like a very "techno" altmode).

    Heck, I never noticed it before, but Lugnutz even has that multi-barrel rocket launcher on his shoulder which looks surprisingly like one that came with Afterburner! It hadn't occurred to me, but I'm suddenly thinking that Lugnutz was an Afterburner homage in the first place!

    Have you considered swapping them? Arguably the "feminine" rounded curves and rice burner alt-mode on the Arcee mold fits Wheelie better.

    Sorry. Not to be a dick about it... ;) 

    I like Groove. I've been wanting to do that with my Axer for a while.

    I've still got the Axer molds as well as the Arcee molds in my project bins just waiting on me. :)  It's nice to see some customs finished with those molds that are made by the artist to fit in with Alts. :thumb 

    I wished that the other bikes were the same size as Arcee (as she's a bit closer to 1:24 scale). Oh well, we win some and lose some. I think the designs of the molds themselves work well with the Alt line though :thumb 

    Great work buddy! :thumb

    With Afterburner, I think that if I can work the head right and fix the feet, he will pass. I like the red racer look, I feel its a more futuristic look than the Harley type. The curves on the legs kinda remind me of a spacesuit, especially with the squared inner thighs - they dont show in the pics very well. Also kinda thought the Harley would be funny for wheelie as if he had grown from a kid into a teenager who thinks he is better than he really is

    Thanks for the feedback

    With reasoning supplied for your decisions, I now totally see what you were going for.

    LOL at Wheelie as a juvenile delinquent (or JD for short ;)  )

    Any idea how to fix the feet? The heels are gonna be hard, but what if the foot was extended to give it more of a riding boot look? Any idea for a better head?
