    Started this guy in december,wanted to keep him secret until tfcon, but ive noticed a few different takes on animated rodimus prime, so here is what i got so far,
    i wanted to make an upgrade kit for him,without having to mod the hotrod figure, it combines into an overlapping trailer,aka animated space winnebago
    this is all u get until tfcon
    enjoy

    Wouldn't say copy you. But, you both have the same idea. His is much, much more of a conversation kit from what I can tell. Your's is more like minor add-on armor. Which by the way is very impresive. But if you were to break down both projects. The two are totally different, but still sustain the main idea. Anyway, Even though it's a teaser, I like where this is going. Keep it up! :)

    I hate the bot mode for animated Hot Rod. I keep him only in car mode. THIS is looking pretty good.

    ur right, i lied about not modding roddy at all, i sanded the back of his head for more neck articulation,
    it does look wierd in the photo though, lol

    yeah, thats exactly what i did, he killed wreck-gar and used his parts, hehe

    when i finish my minicon targetmaster will you say i stole that from you too, lol
    good for us we had the same idea, i really love the box you made, and your papercraft is excellent,
    i hope if you post in the forum again you can give me some constructive criticisms

    for the record, i wanted to make this to get opinions from derrick wyatt and Daniel (Protoman)

    see you at TFCON 2011

    if it's done by Purple Bot, I know it'll be killer once completed.

    look forward to the finished product man :thumb
