    Another mystery TF WiP **Updated 5/30**

    So i know i haven't updated my last WiP in forever, however he is still being worked on. This guy I'm working on now is something of a test to see how possible it would be for me to tackle another similar project, but on a grander scale.

    This is going to be kind of a hybrid scratch build. Some pieces, such as limbs, will be built upon other pieces, but most of the torso and such will be complete styrene builds.

    Note: the hands and uncovered part of the wrist are just place holders

    Hint: its not a movie character, which i realize just based on this little part it looks like it will be.

    Updated 5/30:

    started building the torso. Theres a little more done than this, but its not all connected yet. Maybe this will help people guess, maybe not.

    the hints I added on the last post were these: he's a tank, he's a G1 character, and he was heavily redesigned for the IDW comics (which is the version I'm making)

    howsabout rising storm megatron ? or war within ? it's the arm cannon that really gives it away, that and that you are using skullgrin as the base figure, like others have done

    Something WFC? Breakdown? The gun looks similar to his arm mounted one. Whatever it is I'm loving the look of it.

    no ones got it so far. I'll give a couple more hints: he does turn into a tank, he's a G1 character, and he was completely redesigned for the IDW comics

    man, you're close. This character was redesigned for the same mini-series, but he didn't finish the mini-series looking this way. Thats a pretty big hint.

    It's Bludgeon, isn't it? :D  I'd been wanting to say that (skeletal arm with tank barrel? Only one bot it could be...) but I kept quiet because I have nothing constructive to say. ...I'll just go back to my cave now.

    Yea Tomiku, it's Bludgeon, I had figured out who it was last night but didn't have a chance to come a post about it.

    Good work so far on him OP.

    bam! correct you guys are. This is going to be Bludgeon. He's based on the concept art in the back of the Stormbringer tpb. He'll be transforming, but unfortunately, I think he's going to parts-form a little. The arms ended up a little bigger than I thought they would, so they'll probably have to be detached at the shoulder ball, but other than that, he should work perfectly.

    Sounds awesome man, I've always loved that piece of concept art of Bludgeon in the back of Stormbringer TPB. Can't wait to see how yours turns out.
