    Had the idea for this guy around the same time Spurt Reynolds did only I was lazy and didnt get around to it. After seeing his it gave me the swift kick in the ass I needed to finish mine up:

    Gave him 2 separate weapons each of which can be combined with his alt mode. The missile luancher for the SUV can also change into a rocket launcher for the bot mode.

    Alt modes are an SUV and Chopper made from PCC Smolder and an Energon Combiner chopper.

    Thanks for looking,

    I love this! The paint job is amazing of course, but the brilliant engineering and proportions of both modes are Classics perfection. I loved that figure as a kid, despite the stiff limitation, so it's fantastic to see him fully realized. It's like seeing an old friend all grown up. Thank you for sharing this masterpiece.

    I'm sure you'll get requests for a compatible BattleTrap, but that would cause my mind to explode.

    That works brilliantly!! I wish I hadn't sold my spare Energon helicopter... I'd try it myself. Too perfect! :D

    Yours and Spurt's are both awesome. You've succeeded in making me like a character I hated as a kid. Someone do Flywheels now

    OK, well, I am also making this fig...I have filed the notches in Smolder's abdomen pegs for the nubs on the chopper's nose to fit into. They do not hold the chopper in place. I was wondering what else was done to hold the chopper in place in bot mode? Are there any pegs that go into Smolder's back? Or does the chopper just "sit" on top of Smolder's shoulders for photo ops only?

    Thanks everyone for liking BT. Internmike, i'll take some pics once I get home without the chopper attached. He is definatly connected and just not sitting there. I'm guessing everyone will have rheir own way of making the connection, I used Lego and Gundam peg for mine.

    Hey, man! Thank you for the video..a little dark...but it really helps..I messaged Spurt about it and he said his just holds on by friction between the nubs on the chopper and the slots he cut into the waist pegs of Smolder. I like your idea better, so I will do something like it (if you don't mind). Thank you!

    I am still amazed at how fantastic this works. It is the perfect update to the G1 character. I started a Flywheels a LOOOOOOONG time ago. I may just have to dig him out and wrap him up!

    Now it should be made by Hasbro.
