    So! I have FINALLY worked out the transformation process on this little bastard. He is without a doubt, my MOST extensive, intricate and complex bit of work to date. It is a commission for Destrongerlupus and he gave me complete creative freedom so I sort of re-imagined everyones favorite grumpy bot, while keeping him recognizeable and in fashion with the CHUGRTS line. All that needs t be done is some cleaning up, adding a rear window to the cap, then painting.
    Also, here is a full gallery of the transformation process for anyone interested.
    Enjoy!

    Hmmm... robot mode strikes me as Swerve, but the vehicle does resemble Gears. So I think this is the first 3-Dimensional and transforming representation... of SWERVEGEARS!!!!

    Oh man that came out sweet! :thumb  This mish-mash of seemingly a million bits & pieces fits together like a glove :lol . Can't wait for the paint! :D 

    For some reason, I now feel like having a fiddle with my G1 Gears...

    I notice it looks like he lost his Microchange 'M' between early pics and these, I'd love to see it restored in the final product ;)

    Oh it will be there. In black plastic to avoid painting too. That was on the 3rd or 4th Sentinal Prime. This would be the 7th I believe. He went through SO many rednitions of failed front end designs. Luckily I had coupons and caught them on clearance at Stop n' Shop!!
