    When I saw 3-D rendition on iaconcity I thought it was a really cool design so wanted to see if I can make one. This is based on Adam Alexander's fan character Botch the crab. You can read more about it here:

    http://www.botchthecrab.com/about/botch.asp

    It was harder to make this than I expected due to the small scale of it. It was difficult to try to get all 6 legs to fold up neatly in cassette mode. It didn't come out as clean as I would wanted it. Also, I am awaiting cassette stickers to be made for me so the front of the cassette mode looks plain at the moment.

    I have to say, I'm impressed! It's rare to see anyone attempt to make a cassette bot, and it even fits inside of Soundwave. A++!

    Dude that is awesome! I really like Botch's website even if he uses some of the box art I edited without thanks :)  This custom looks just like the CG art on his website of Botch and I can hardly believe you got it to transform! It's a pain to work on such a small scale no? You aways do an amazing job Viagra.

    Did you make this for Adam or was it just inspired by his character? Either way it's fantastic! I'm sure he'll love it. I've met him a few times and he's a huge G1 fan, good guy too

    Great work man, really. That seems like a tough task but you seem like you don't mind a good challenge based on all your other works I've seen

    I was gonna make a comment about it being 'TeH sEXORs!', but then considered the words sex and crabs should never be used together.

    Instead i'll settle for saying - Awesome d00d

    You did an absolutely amazing job on that, VP! I know how hard it is to work at such a small scale (and I don't scratch build so it must be that much harder in such) and this turned out to be a work of beauty.
