    Well this was believe it or only made between the glue drying process of the other recent custom I posted... It obviously uses the Animated Ratchet mold..
    I am gonna square it of and make it look less animated, but....

    I have no idea for a character yet?? Already feel like I have a decent Trailbreaker custom made last week or so... ofcrs Ratchet/Ironhide is obvious, but I already got the Classics/Generations figs + I really really want the Igear's

    So pls help :p 

    PS.: the mods on this on r even harder 2 replicate then on the Grapple..
    but it's really hard 2 explain or capture the transformation on pics :( 

    C&C Welcome!

    UPDATE1:
    WOW you'll never believe this ... first of all the arms came from a Titanium Sunstorm, which obviously where only 1 of the the few plastic parts.. then I inspected the legs and was surprised that they all fit with so little modding!!

    UPDATE2:
    Wow I haven't worked on this 1 for a long time...
    Today I said screw it, cuz the longer legs made the previous transform sux
    atleast in altmode there would be even more gap etc.
    So I cut up some more, now I think i just need 2 scratch build some panels
    I want it 2b FIRSTAID!, but if I can't find a nice combiner mode I'll do Ratchet :p

    So weird, I've just been working with these Animated molds recently. I was considering making some of the same changes that you've implemented here. Thanks for doing the hard part! :D 

    I Like the look of those new forearms too. It really helps push the figure into a less "animated" style. I still don't know which character you're going for though...

    You could make another Trailbreaker......then send it to me. ;) 

    Honestly, I'd just make another Trailbreaker, see which one I wanted more for my collection, then auction off the other.

    yeah, i've been working with the same mold as well. i'm currently making ironhide and ratchet. pretty much done with the mod, but not with the paint.

    and geforce, your transformation design is way more sophisticated than mine, haha.

    also, noticed that the back of the bot has been reversed. very interesting indeed!

    Turbomaster Scorch. He's got that same "big truck front end folds down to become a paunch, windshield as chest" aesthetic going. Slap a gun from Cybertron Crosswise/Smokescreen on there and get painting.

    thnx 4 the suggestion... but I forgot 2 tell I'm all for G1 (updated) ;) 

    So It will prolly b First Aid + Defensor!
    (but might change my mind into Ratchet/Ironhide)
