    I was very inspired by WhiteMocha's mod and spent quite some time looking for a toy Bull for my own set of horns. The only thing I found was a long horn steer whose horns were wider than Tantrum's Jeep mode.

    I finally decided to try using the horns from a G1 Tantrum. I didn't even have to sacrifice the G1 Tantrum since all I had to do was unscrew the head to remove the horns. Even better, the horns are held in place by a post and a screw which is just the right length to be connected to the Jeep hood without modifying them. All I had to do was drill a hold in the hood and tighten the screw in place.

    Here he is, complete with his spectacular Reprolabels!

    bot mode not too shabby if you put bigger tires on it, it would look like the monster trick el toro

    I actually like the big horns, and I agree that bigger tires would set this custom off nicely... think you can make that happen?

    I like it too, horns and all....I plan on doing the same thing, except for I'm adding some big ol' tires to mine...44" rims and tires to be exact...and some horns from some "Narnia" figure (I think thats it)

    I'll be sure to give you and WhiteMocha props too.

    I agree about the tires but I've had a hard time getting 1/24 scale parts. The one kit that I did find only had smaller tires. I actually want to use the tires from Tantrum on my Alt Checkpoint custom. Any suggestions on where to find replacement wheels?

    How about from one of these kits? Couldn't find just wheels for a truck...they only had low profile rims/wheels.

    I'd have to see one in person - the smaller scale makes me wonder if the tires would be any larger than the ones I have. I'm really going to have to fine a hobby shop somewhere nearby!

    Nice! I'll have to do some planning this weekend and see if I think my skills are up to the replacement.
