    Hello,

    Five years ago around the time Binaltech was launched, Citroen introduced the C4 with a transformer. A second version of the commercial was released a few years later with a slightly different transformation. Everyone here knows this of course. Has anyone else done this?

    I actually started this several months ago, but I am a very busy human, so don't expect an update soon. I am moving and I am packing this up as it is right now until I get settled into my new home.

    Please offer suggestions for what you would like:

    I was planning to use an Alt Skids as a platform similar to the original commercial, but I could use a KO Prowl instead like the second version commercial.

    Name? - who should this guy be?

    Head? - I've got lots of alt heads, but not every one is sacrificial.

    Color? - don't know if the red rally detailing will survive the process (not likely), silver like the commercials, or some other color?

    My mild opinion is Camshaft, in silver, with a modified Prime head, looks vaguely like G1 camshaft. However, except for the fact that I had a G1 Cammy as a kid, the character means nothing to me.

    I'd say go for the 2nd bot, the 1st looks too fragile.

    Granted, they wanted it to look lithe & agile, so it'd be easier to make it dance (less kibble in the way...), but it just doesn't look so good on a warrior 'bot...
