    so yeah,i think i found a good use for a pretty cruddy mold.
    ladies and gents,classics blaster,using a deluxe 2pac classics prime.
    mods are....

    permanently fused mid section,so no more tasmanian devil hurricane spin feature.
    knee-cap tops clipped and ground down.
    upper front bot mode chest was ground down flat,then a inner windshield from a g1 inferno(grapple would work too) was sliced down to a lower profile,and a heat formed chunk of styrene was fused to it.
    the buttons under his chest is essentially a cut down sideskirt piece from a 1/24 scale vw rabbit model kit.
    his feet were dissassembled,flipped around,then cut down on what used to be the front of his feet.
    the big speakers are a set of front wheels from a tftm07 old school bb.
    the small speakers in bot mode are wheels from a thomas the tank engine.
    the tweeters in alt mode are lego bits.
    the tweeters in bot mode are laser cut acrylic.
    his head is from cybertron crosswise,with the sides ground down and bits of styrene added for his trademark ears.
    his gun is from cybertron hotshot,modified with a chunk from inside a ronson lighter(the chunk that makes the spark to ignite the gas)and two rear brake discs from the same vw kit.
    i guess this mistransformation would also make this mold pretty viable as his arch enemy soundwave.

    (sorry for the big sized pics,photobucket switched up and i'm trying to get used to it)

    with rts prime for size comparison

    That's the same thing I was doing to my prime on my shelf! I had him in the exact same config and was calling him "sounder prime"! Glad to see I wasnt the only one who though of it. Great work on the apps! And is that a galaxy force Autovolt head? Great idea if it is!

    Nice job. This guy works very well as a Deluxe Blaster. I even had to look twice to realize what figure you used. Good choice!

    Awesome work! I must to say that I love the body and the transformation but honestly I don't like the head, but that's just my opinion dude. Anyway if someday you manage to get him a more G1 accurate head that will make your work singularly perfect.
