    Yes, I figured it was close enough in scale.

    I don't think I wanna risk the transformation. It would work but I'm not sure if it would scratch the paint.

    Interesting and unique. That is not the Alt. mold I expected to see when I read the title of your thread. Nice job! And yeah, watch the TF'ing stress on that new paint job (I've put a couple chips in my Sidewinder already NNNNOOOOOOOO!!!)...well, now he looks more like my real truck :D

    Except for the head, i don't get it. I had roadbuster as a kid and he was more orange and brown than green...plus a jeep.......thing, loaded with weapons. A heavily modified JEEP might work better! Sorry for the negative feedback. I really liked Roadbuster as a kid...that's all!

    Huh. My truck's name is Roadbuster, and the original G1 Roadbuster was a 4WD vehicle, a Jeep/Hummer type vehicle. I can't say I like Roadbuster being a Mustang, but if he was to be any car it is the best choice.

    I was following the theme of Alternators as being realistic vehicles. I have never seen an orange Mustang. However, I have seen a green one similar to the green one like the green I used. I was having fun with the character. I think it captures the essance of the character without being an exact replica.

    It's very nice, but it down't solve my problem. I want to do updated wreckers, but I can't figure out which mold/head to use for Roadbuster.
