    I like it... So much cool packed in a little rectangle.

    I really find it funny that everyone makes Armorhide armed to the tooth... He never really struck me as a "ima blow you up now" type character (no, i did not wake up at 5 AM to watch Cybertron)

    I think that stems from his chest-full-o-boom

    Awesome trailer btw, I love it when trailers actually serve a purpose to a bot like that. Also, excellent touches giving him original weapon and key storage places.

    Hi, Plowking! Nice to see you too. I love your work more than mine.

    And thanks to all for your comments.

    Now, the answers. I made the trailer from pieces of several cheap chinese toys. The plastic quality was so low that I almost gave up and threw it away. You can see the ugly gap in the rear view pic. I cut the "box" in zig-zag with an Xacto (that was the hardest part). Then added two hinges an some pieces to hold the weapon and cyberkey, as well as bionicle joints for the missiles. I spray-painted in two different colors and put some stickers (thanks to my wife for the designs). You can see the whole gallery in this link:

    I forgot to post this pic, Armorhide Prime:

    I'm glad you like it. See you soon.

    No one, I added two missiles to the "hand" piece. I used superglue, sand paper and paint.
