    here's my first autobot triple changer,

    used hot rod for the base and added a lot of styrene. Work starts on broadside and sandstorm when i get paid at the end of the month.

    Clever work, I like the swords-as-rotors, and you've got the head spot on!

    I've been waiting for this. It looks good. A little rough in a few spots (like the hood piece doesn't quite seem to match up) but overall pretty sweet.

    It's classics Hot Rod with RID bulldozer's head. I admit that it's very clever and very refreshing.

    spot on ptivite, with legends cyb optimus legs for arms,

    thanks for the coments, i agree with redline that the chest looks out of place and it doesn't exactly scream g1, maybe revisit it when i have a bit more practice with styrene work.

    looking forward to starting broadside and sandstorm though

    Your take on Springer is awesome, a little bit rough, but it has been notified. So good job on it, chlokai.

    thanks for the comments, just so you know, I got the idea of using the rotors as swords from the G1 version

    Neat! Immediately identifiable... this works pretty well.

    I mean, sort of awkward in both modes... so just like G1! ;)

    A very good attempt at what is one of the hardest types of customisation ever! A bit dodgy in some places but hey, I'm just one of those guys who loves giving critisism! Can't wait to see your next custom!

    Dude that's cool. I've been wanting to make a Springer for a while now. I just didn't want to re-paint a helicopter. I want a triple changer, but couldn't figure out how to do it. You gave me a good idea... but for a different base figure.

    That is actually pretty cool looking. I can see some things I would do differently if I were to ever do my own version of this. Keep up the good work.

    Dude, nice job. Anyone who can actually pull off a triple changer in a bash is top notch in my book. An to give us a Springer...
