    Most... tank figures have treads on their legs. But if you mean legs that are completely made up of treads, then that's a bit tougher.

    But maybe you don't particularly have to use legs. Maybe take say, RID Wedge (depending on size) Wedge's arms are treads. But with some work, they could possibly be turned into legs.

    decided maybe i should post up some pics so you guys get a better idea of what im am talking about this is bone crusher ( he is pretty good but i want more articulation so i will probably redo the arms as well because there is no elbow joint)

    also what do you guys thin about the green?

    Wow! That's a pretty neat Bonecrusher. You could always cut the legs in two and add a knee joint.

    if i knew how i would, i have thought about itjust not sure how to pull it off without it showing in dozer mode (the top of the tread in dozer mode is the back of the leg)

    and thanks im pretty happy with him as car as g1 looks goes once i get him all painted i think he is gonna look great and its something different from the usual devastator crew

    if the treads you have are hollow, i would try to get a piece or block of styrene to make a sliding block with the joint on the end of it, so you can slide the legs together for dozer mode, adding a small piece of styrene inside on two sides and a lip on the top of the styrene block would make a good stopper so it doesn't just slide right out

    BTW nice bonecrusher and mixmaster, very original

    yeah i really think im going to use the seeker legs and make it work or the little dozer from the landfill team (wedge) take his arms and make them fit into the treads if they are hollow enough

    thanks im hoping the scavenger i have planned comes out as good as these have
