    Back in university, I rode a top tank TOMOS moped:

    Since I've done a custom figure of myself in recent years, I'd love to make my black/red moped bike into a custom - even if it's more of a Motorcycle-style bike/bot.

    Any suggestions for what TF bike I should use? I've been eyeing the RTS Wreck-gar, but I've been waiting for him to be more widely available in the next wave of figures. I also know there's been a few motor cycle (chopper-style) TF bikes over the years. Any suggestions?

    Also, I saw a Junkion add-on set for the RTS Wreckgar figure - it added a new weapon and a new face (or head?) - does anyone have info on that?
    /Update:
    I found the Junkion kits - they're made by a dude in Japan. I just sent him a PM for 2 heads - I'll end up using one of them on this custom. :)

    Thanks!

    I love the music in those videos - I feel like I'm standing in a Japanese video game, listing to Musak. ;) 

    Really near stuff...

    I'm almost convinced I need to use the Wreck-gar figure, just because it's bot mode looks so cool. Still, open to other suggestions of good bike-TFs. Ideally, something that a Marvel Legend-size figure could 'ride'. :)

    It took me a min. of looking at it - but is that a scooter kitbashed with a Wreckgar? I'd love to see what it looks like when transformed. :)

    More specifically it looks like the Hightail recolor.

    i want it to lead like a scout for my junkion platoon.

    the bot mode is basically the same as the previous customs. the backwheel will be attached on its legs. then the front wheel will attach on the back. i haven't touched it since. been busy with life.
