    I'm not even sure how to classify this... Or even if this isn't somethnig that was seen before. But gonna post it anyways, so apologies for any oldies who've seen this before:

    I was doing a random image search for Mugen Caliber on Google (Something to keep me occupied), and ended up coming across these images on this page here... It appears to be a complete custom kit for Strongarm that was on sale, but I'm dubious because I know they had plans for Roadbuster as a convention exclusive, so don't know if this is something they made up for it.

    Either way, it looks nice to me; plastic for the back hatch seems a little off, but other than that... Anyone got an opinion, or know more about this?

    EDIT: Gotta make sure to proof read the title next time...

    I wanted to turn this figure into Swindle, but I have no idea what head mold to use. Anyone know any off the top of their heads?

    It's probably based off of the whole canceled OTFCC concept which would have had two Strong Arms - one as this in green and orange, and one as Brawn with fighter's mitts.

    The head at least looks very close to the concept, and it would have had the rifle too.
