    I dont recall anyone ever doing this one... either with car or even the character

    So anyway, used a Metals transform Viper as base, removed the ugly decals and painted some purple stripes based off the Commemorative Edition SRT of the 2005 Dodge Viper SRT10, but as you can see, the paint chipped... im gonna use a plastic alternators hood from a junker Sideswipe, painted with Krylon fusion, make again the stripes and later make a photoshoot

    The rest of the body was pretty much unaltered, i simply turned the legs to give a different look of the other Vipers

    finally for the head, base is KO Prowl with a custom crest based on the G1 figure for reference (always hated the cartoon head from the way it was drawed), with some details of the upcoming Universe Tankor

    What ya think uh?

    EDIT2: Just uploaded finished pics, with car mode

    Very cool. You should get some of those cheap Magnet toys & put the
    hood on the chest for Bot mode.

    ok, that's just awesome, Nap. :)  I love it. Love the doors being used as mock-wings, the head mod, the color purple. SQ7 did use the car for a custom of his, but this is indeed the first time I've seen any version of an Alt Octane. Do you normally just keep the hood stored up loosly in the car-rear on the bot's back?

    I keep the hood unaltered, but since i needed to repaint it, i decided to remove it and take a pic to show the stripes :)

    You certainly oughta take advantage of the loose hood and make it a shield.
