    Well I've settled we an ugly ass alt-mode but keep in mind I needed 4 different modes to stay somewhat cool and will stay in R.Prime mode on display :D 

    I have 2 version Roddy Prime botmode which are both present in this final...
    I just have a hard time to chose so I kept both and display one and change when necessary ;) 

    here's the regular Roddy:

    Here's the WIP of the upgrade to Prime:

    Not much paint was used, only the head...
    I used only 2 figure Energon & Cybertron versions of Rodimus
    + minor lego for Weapons/Connections and balljoints for the shouders from leftovers

    Enjoy C&C Welcome :rolleyes: 
    Enjoy...

    Hrmmm, well I still like the concept, but not feeling where you landed too much, alt-mode is, as you admit, rathert sloppy, and the head takes this *away* from Rodimus-land and leaves me thinking it mostly looks like some kind of Fire-Themed Digimon...that transforms into a sort-of-truck-thing.

    Now I like Digimon, so I kind of dig the effect, but not feeling it as Rodimus, sorry. if you're happy with him though, it's all good :thumb

    Yup... will do some minor reworks but nothing big... :) 
    I'll prolly remove the yellow horns as with the 1st version I had..
    I do wanted a regular face but none of my spare heads did the trick :(

    I do have to agree with DL on this one. I like the bot mode, and even the "truck" mode has potential, but, there are too many gaps and all the fins sticking out make it look too thrown together, like a junkion prime or something......

    keep trucking along though, you are bound to hit another that blows my mind.

    Honestly, I think you need to stop worring about your "NO MOD" policy and give a dremel a try.......
    with your creativity, and some practice, you'll be hitting them out of the park in no time.

    On second thought, with a little more detailing, editing, and more parts, you could say he's IDW Sentinel Prime.

    That no mod policy was only for the base figure....
    Of course I could have gone the extra 100000mile ;) 
    But really wanted to try and stick with the 2figure and not paint :) 
    So it was a decision made and I knew I would be happy with the end result..
    and believe me the mods I did to make this happen, involve a lot of dremeltime

    thnx!

    Thank you brother... yeah it could, but no it won't :D

    I really do like the bot mode but the matrix on the chain and with that head makes me think con instead of bot. Not to big on the vehicle as well the second car showing in his arse end makes me think what the, If you were able to hid the second car that would look better and as stated the head in robot mode really needs to be changed for some one else because it doesn't make you feel rodimus prime and as stated before more fire themed prime/digimon. But besides all that I think with a little time you will definitely get the look your after.

    Wait... G60, you have a No Mods policy? DUDE... Get modding, my man!! With the quality of stuff you have already put out, you could really do something special. Don't be afraid to destroy some toys, they are only toys after all.

    EDIT: ok i read wrong, never mind. Still - Keep it up!!

    I have to say WOW! Because you have a different take on classic characters and making them look totally different to the point of saying, "WOW!"
