    I've been waiting to do this guy since Alternators Rumble came out. A nice little chest mod turned his tape deck into a faux VW roof, a'la Alternators Tracks. The head is a Sculpt-bot head, and the arms are from Armada Starscream.

    He was a bit of a rush job, but that's because the wedding is closing down on me. :D  I admit that there are a few things I still want to fix, but he's good enough for me. I like him! :)

    Thats cool!...I like the little touches you added to it like the faux roof for the chest and all the little detail paint work, and the yellow looks really good...

    I wouldn't have noticed the leg thing had you not pointed it out.

    Non-the-less....its awesome :thumb

    Hopefully, yeah, by this weekend. He's still missing a Honda symbol on his front grille/legs and he needs a glosscote; after that, he'll get a nice photo shoot for both Robot and vehicle mode.

    Turned out very cool man! This is a mold that I never would have thought of for BB, but it definitely suits him. Makes him look like a stocky bruiser, rather than a chubby wimp. Great work, and good luck on th nuptuals (sp.?)

    Nope. :(  I originally designed the arms so that they could slide in...and then I realized that I was test-fitting the arms wrong. Oops!

    I might, at some point, go back and see if I can fix up the arms so they slide in and out. For now, though, I think he's ok how he is.

    EDIT: Thanks, Sculpt-bot. I'm gonna get in contact with you in a few days; I'm jonesin' for one more head. :D
