    As I raise my head from commission land (Can you say Alt Beachcomber? I can!), I finish off a WIP that's been hanging on my desk for a few months now. Thanks to Nemesis Predaking for the super cool mini-gun (originally part of his AutobotX Sigma Six custom from Heavy Duty...win!!!) and the master bashers at Sector 70 for inspiring me with their Headmaster Competition. (I'm hella late, huh? :lol ) and my homie Rodimus Dawg for his awesome TFTM Leader Class Brawl mod for his IDW themed Hardhead that I stole! (with is permission of course...ya numnutz!!!) Also, thanks to Sioce for giving me the kick in the butt I need to finish it.

    His headmaster buddy, Duros, was built from the Safeguard Mini-con as well as the face from the Armada Rook Mini-con, one of Sideways lil buddies. The tank treads came from a junker Universe Tankor, the tank turret from TFTM Leader Class Brawl. His super cool hands are from a Masterpiece Skywarp, and are embedded with rare earth magnets so that he can hold his arsenal of weapons and still look good!:

    -2 Shatterblaster machine guns (chain fed with lifting breech and iron sights/built from 2 different WWI machine guns 1/7 scale/embedded with magnets)

    -1 Mini-gun (also embedded with magnets with rotating barrel and underside rocket launcher)

    -1 forearm mounted chain gun

    -Rotating tank turret (with lights and sounds/barrel lifts for over the shoulder for bot mode action)

    -Interchangeable ammo feeding system (4 different ammo cannisters with opening/closing lids/2 store on back/1 on each calf)

    -Over 10 inches of chain ammunition

    WOW that really is incredible!

    The only thing I see is that the eyes need more detail, they seem to blend in with the orange face mask too much (at first glance I couldn't tell if he had eyes or not)

    Damn nice. I was just in the process of acquiring the parts to pull off a tank mode myself while I wait for the upgrade set.

    While I don't think a Transformer is going to fire actual bullets, who cares? This looks really sweet man!

    Hey, so this is that project you said you were working on. Looks good man. The Tankor treads look real nice on that Onslaught mold.

    That is pretty damn bad-ass! :D  The weaponry, the turret/tread/HM mods & the battle-worn paintjob all work so well together - Overall, A very well thought-out & executed Hardhead :thumb .

    Hmmmm, I wonder what this mold reshelled with a hisstank would look like? [​IMG]
