    well here goes! first of all this very special project started as a commission for a very cool fellow board member who loves both animated TF's and the Erector character.

    this was made to be handed over at the recent Auto Assembly convention here in the UK so we decided to enter it into the contest in which it took 3rd place!

    this was of course made from the animated sentinel prime base toy and a custom head designed by the one and only Calloway custom designs.

    the owner(jon) took the pics for me and didn't want to scratch the paint so just bot mode pics. hope every body enjoys a little bit of Erector :)

    Yeah, I'm surprised the yellow is so good. It's usually literally the hardest colour besides white to get to come out well. And that headsculpt... amazing.

    Nobody's made a single joke.

    Probably because this is a great custom.

    I don't think anyone makes a joke about his name around that guy, looks tough.

    Like a boy named Sue situation.
