    A little project I've had sitting around since the end of May, and just now got around to finish.
    Alternators Stryka... or Alternators Universe Nemesis Stryka if you wanna get really technical. :) 

    I'm always liked Stryka, she's one of the few things in Beast Machines that didn't make me want to throw things at the TV. I felt it only fitting she get a non-BM toy in someway.
    I liked the Universe colors over her show colors, so I went with those. Used a Alt. Sunstreaker body (Modded by Clay so the legs and chest change differently. Also so the hood becomes a shield, though that was his idea, not mine. THANK YOU, CLAY!), and an Autolooper head (Which I got from Clay in exchange for the Sunstreaker head. THANK YOU AGAIN, CLAY.).

    I made the black lines wide, painted the headlights purple, the lower lights orange, and added a custom plate (Aquired from... well, take a wild guess who gave it to me :p  ).
    Originally, was going to have the entire front end black, but it didn't look right to me, so I took some rubbing alcohol to take it off. Had the nice effect of leaving what looked like screws in nose of the car. YAY, serendipity!

    Included some In-Progress photos before I did the head just because I had'em.

    I know, but with no new molds coming out, and little in the way of available resources, I think the well is starting to run dry.

    Also, that was weird. For the past day or two, clicking the link for this thread took me to the a Jazz custom thread.

    Yeah, I know what you mean....the last one released was what?...last year?...I could imagine that its only going to get harder to find custom fodder from the Alt line.

    Yes, that would be wierd....let one of us know if it happens again.
