    Hello! Here is a custom of a little guy I have always loved, WARPATH (WHAMMO!)! He was pretty much the same base(Megatron/Optimus Two pack with TFM Longarm head) as my friend John Mallamas(Infact he was the one to call me to let me know KB had them, Thanks Bro!) Used Optimus Prime's arms and used a magnet to attach the turret in both bot and tank mode. Painted him all up red with grey and black details and he was done.

    Thanks very much! And yup Megatrons cannon.

    LOL Thanks bro, have to admit I was in a bit of a TF rut, got alot of the Marvel(and one DC) out of the way but more commissions are working there way in.

    Thanks very much! That one of the main reasons I liked him, loved the way he talked.
    Thanks very much bro! The cannon is most definitely from Megatron in the two pack.

    Dude, its impressive, but one thing kinda sticks out well the turrent in tank mode looks odd. But thats the only flaw I see the rest is definitely Warpath.

    Wow... great idea. Okay, so there are only so many tank TFs in this size, so maybe it should have been obvious, but I think this just works really well. The head was a good call, as was swapping in Prime's arms. You took 2 weak figures and made one "classic". :) 

    The only thing I'm less than hyped about is the gun. It looks a bit awkward in both modes, and the sci-fi ray-gun styling of it clashes with the rest of the aesthetic (especially with the boxy retro-looking turret). I might go as far as subbing in a more conventional looking tank gun from some dollar-store tank... especially something with some more of a hub around the base of the cannon.

    But overall, really cool!

    Very neat. I'd steal the cannon off of a Deluxe Brawl to replace the sci-fi one, though

    Very nice job splicing Prime and Megatron into a decent-looking fig. I will, however, echo the criticisms of the turret in tank mode; I'm actually okay with the sci-fi-looking gun, as the whole tank has kind of an over-detailed sci-fi look to it to my eye anyway. The concern I have is that a) the Prime arms are too boxy for the rest of the mould, making the turret look like a bit of a mismatched add-on; and b) the turret cannon in tank mode looks like it's only just attached to the turret.

    I think the bot mode works really well, it's just the tank mode that throws me.
    Very nice paintjob, though. :D

    this looks REALLY excellent.
    my only issue is the cannon. I'm not sure it quite fits the mold. also i think it's too high off the turret in tank mode.

    I would like to do this some day and attach the turret to the swivel piece that's under the head so that it can TF like this without parts-forming.

    The only complaint I have besides that is the turret looks "off". paint and robot mode look stellar though.

    Thanks bro! Was trying to use as much of the stuff from the two pack as I could, thanks for the feedback.

    Thanks a lot Smog great detailed feedback is what I love, thanks for taking the time. I thought about trying to find different arms and a cannon but when I got the set I was planning on just making him from just the set(sans the Head as it is perfect).
    Thanks very much! I thought about it.
    Thanks a ton Plowking, glad ya like.
    Thanks a lot as well, I will echo the same thing I said to Smog(3 quotes up.)

    Danku! I agree about the turret.

    Thanks man, Hmm I think I will make that change, I forgot all about his face and the reference I was using was all red for some reason.
    Thanks, glad you like.
    I got another set for Fallen that I plan on using and playing with him I don't think that would work to well. the pieces switch around(the area where it would need to be attached to in bot mode becomes the back of the tank in alt mode) so there would be no way of permanently attaching it, it would have to be removed and re situated. Thanka very much for the compliment.
