    I did not custom paint this awesome figure. I found it on ebay and thought it was awesome looking and had to have it!

    WHAM BLAM POW!!!

    Very nice, man. What base figure is that? Reverse Convoy?

    Pretty sure it's a K/O Reverse Convoy

    Almost wrote about it on the blog when it was up on Ebay, I thought it was pretty great too, not in love with the jacked-leg articulation though, and I feel like Warpath needs to have his barrel centered rather than off the shoulder, but whoever made this did great clean work, so I really admire it!

    Birthday cake? Really? That's awesome!

    It's better than ANY Warpath figure Hasbro has put out...so far.

    I can't tell if it's a KO mini G2 megatron figure or the Reverse Convoy, which I have. I'll have to do some comparing.

    Since I am not sure how widely it was released (never even came close to seeing it in my area), yes. Yes it did.

    For some, considering how poorly distributed it was, yeah, it probably did cease to exist. :D 

    Cool looking little Warpath though.

    EDIT: D'oh! aey103 beat me to the punch...

    The OP said they didn't paint the figure, so I'm guessing it comes in that colour.

    It looks quite a bit like the one I used to have. Does the chest on that one open and close like a mouth with jagged, pointy teeth?
    If so, I'm pretty sure it originally came in a green camouflage coloring... and I paid $4-5 for it directly from my local grocery store bakery...

    I just picked this one up today for $1. If this little guy is produced for cake decorations, it sure is one nice toy!

    That's alright I guess but the Generations version is perfect anyways.

    that's a nice custom warpath. I like the 2 tread tank design better than the tanks with 4 small tracks. the generations wapath has the 4 track design and is too big for me and the legends is too small and the new cw warpath that is coming out is not that great to me either so right now I just have the g1 version.

    Warpath's turret is in his chest. This is not Warpath.

    Say, is the missile compatible with official versions of that mold? I might need one soon...

    Not really, as mentioned previously it's clearly a knock-off of G2 Megatron/"Hero" Megatron/RID Bludgeon/Robotmasters Reverse Convoy.

    Though if this is still out there at bakeries...it's actually both cheaper and easier to get at what I'm guessing is roughly decent quality, compared to how you can't really find any of the official ones for less than double the MSRP they sold for anymore.
