    Been meaning to get around to this guy for awhile.

    It started as a Japanese robot figure called a mecha robo. I stripped of the pieces that required you to parts form into a bulldozer and left him in his bare state. I use some vintage robots legs and embedded them in to the arm section of the bot mode. I left to to be removeable so they could be used as clubs. The bugs back section can be removed and turned into a shield and I gave him a gun from a MARS kit. I found a set of Robot feet and attached them to the bottom giving him better stability. He was painted black then brown then orange and silver is approproiate places.

    That sums up Chop Shop hope ya like!

    Who knew the Antlion from Final Fantasy IV was a TF?
    Another fine piece, Shins.
    What paint did you this on this bug? It looks to have a different finish than some of your other pieces.

    Very nice. And he was supposed to be a bulldozer? That's quite some modding...

    Scary jaws, too.

    really cool custom man, i was a bit surprised that it was made out of a mugenbine figure, theyre kinda rare depending on where u try and find them but theyre pretty cool and for those who dont mind parts forming u should really check them out
