    Dig a quick digibash. Once i get the spare Ricochet, he will be made. Already modeled the head, have the extra RID Prowl lightbar, and the OCP Police decals. So hopefully by tomorrow night, Robo-1 will be joining the autobot ranks.

    LMAO! Dude, I'm a Robocop fan and I like that! Should do a custom Robocop type head using the Armada Red Alert's head.

    Oh, and the OCP police car should be a 'Con, not an Autobot. Just IMHO.

    Yes, a Red Alert head would do nicely on it. Great digibash!

    Actually the Armada Red Alert head is the head I already cast for it. It's cooling off now.

    That's really clever, Wreckgar. I really want to see the end product of this one. Do you have a small-scale Robocop to go with it?

    Dude, you suck! I was planning the same thing with Alt. Grimlock. hehe Great minds think alike I guess! I'm not a great kitbasher so I have been working very slowly on this thing. I like your take on him though, nice job.

    Good idea with the Grimlock considering the last Robocop toyline had a Mustang as the patrol car.

    Nah, I'm sticking with Robo-1. I am making another police cruiser with Grimlock and am not sure whether to call him Stakeout or Streetwise.

    The Robocop Mustang was really neat, though I like the strobe lightbars that were used in the first 2 movies better myself. 'bug, a few other friends, and myself have bounced the idea of a Robostang Alt around for a little while since that model (like 'bug said) was actually used in the Robocop mythos.

    In terms of the 4-door angle, I've been using the Robocop Robo-1 model kit lightbars for my own police Alternators customs, Hot Pursuit (my very first custom) and Stakeout. . . . and don't be surprised if they get reinforcents :D 

    Anyways, with that model kit, if you wanted to use the Taurus shell, it would most likely work.

    And just some useless trivia, the Robocop movies (in whatever weird way) inspired me to own 2 Tauruses (a '90 GL and a '95 SE). :redface:

    Actually I have the Robo-1 kit. I am using the lightbar for another model and had the extra decals. That's what inspired me. What stinks is that I would use that lightbar for the custom but the thing is just a TAD to long for the roof.
