    Here is the gallery of my Alternators Springer custom. I can't go forward without saying that Guld's own Springer custom inspired me to create my own. In no way shape or form am I claiming the concept, just my own interpretation of it. I tried to change mine a bit, just to put my own claim on my creation, especially with the "Boss" decals.

    I also created the door mod so the doors can flip around and go behind his arms, just for added distinction between him and Grimlock and Wheeljack. When I created the door mod, I hadn't seen it before, though I think others have done (TFMaster comes to mind with his Megatron custom from the Mustang mold). I made that modification in late January, but did so on my own merit (i.e. hadn't seen anyone do it before).

    Feedback and constructive critism welcomed! Enjoy!

    NICE! That looks great. Good use of the Tracks head, too.

    Well, when I initially bought the color and even sat down at my table with it, I thought "man, this is loud!" I wanted to mix the more yellow-green color that is stock on the Mustang, but I just didn't want to fool with mixing again (as I did with Overcharge). In the end, I was happy with the result. Sometimes it's nice to be disappointed :lol  :lol

    The head looks great, and I really love the stripes in Stang mode. Really retro looking.

    duuuuuuuuuude. perfect head choice. did you have to do a lot of modding to Tracks' head? i'm tempted to source a KO or something and replace E-Bulkhead's head with that.

    Just to let you know, I had a friend (who requested his/her name to be withheld due to not being able to receive requests) who sent me a repro Tracks head. The only thing I did to Springer's head was sand down the vents on the "crest" of the head. In terms of the hole for the neck, this head had to have a hole drilled out in order to even fit on the bot, so it's custom fit.

    E-Bulkhead and a Tracks (or any other Alt/BT for that matter) are two different animals. I'm not saying that it can't be done by any means (check out my Overcharge custom who sports a PR head), so I can't really comment on that much. If you do it, I'd like to see pics :thumb

    i'm sure the aesthetics are going to be a bit of a stretch, but is the size difference at least reasonably minimal [ie, will Tracks' head look too big or anything]? if both heads can be unscrewed into head halves [i'll need to check my Bulkhead to see how his head mechanism works since it's stuck onto a panel]] i'm sure there'll a way to fit the Tracks head on the Bulkhead neck/collar.

    just thinking out loud. :D

    Again, this head was a reproduction head, meaning that the hole for the neck was drilled to custom fit my Springer. I have no clue how it would work on E-Bulkhead.

    I saw it done after I made mine. I know TFMaster has done the same mod to his Megatron, and I think Guld did something similar to his Springer after I did mine (though I think he posted pis pics first). I really like the mod because it gives me more transform options. :D

    this is kind of what i envisioned it would look like. the head doesn't look 100% right, but it's not too bad. is it? :D
