    I made Run-Run here from the Tracks mold. I used Classics grimlock heads(which I might redo down the the road.

    The Decals are all reprolabels (bee saving the one with yellow spikes FOREVER)

    These guys are 100% for my collection and didn't take very long, so I might revisit them from time to time.

    looks great man, but I just don't really dig the use of that mold for them... they weren't sporty type cars, BUT they are your customs, and they look awesome regardless!!

    Thanks, I've had these done for awhile, I just realized I never posted them when I saw the announcement, and for the $20 the 2 tracks cost me at the time, it's a no brainer. I'll probably get a BiS Rodimus for Sideburn as well :/ as I'm RiD obsessed now.

    I forgot to mention that, thanks Eric.

    the grooves that the wings fold into were cut out so the wings fold up into the back closer. The rear of alt mode now sits on the shoulders.
