    A work in progress at the moment and has been since last June I believe. This is a comission for Destrongerlupus. I can't even begin to tell you guys how much work and LOVE has been going into this little guy!
    Obviousley the truck parts are from Animated Sentinal Prime. The bot parts consist of an Energon Bonecrusher, Classics Acid Storm, both heavily modified with mighty putty and styrene. The head is Universe Mudflap with the head tweaked a little to give an new and unique updated Gears look without just being a simple headswap. The hinges that allow the doors to fold under the cab were fabricated entirely out of styrene. The side panels fold in and actually snap into place under the feet. I made these hinges but cutting out a hinged section ov a dvd case and embedding it into the truck panels with mighty putty! Still need to attach the cap which each half will flip out to allow each half of the tailgate to flip up and neatly tuck away under it. More pics to come and this gut will be done very soon! ENJOY!!!

    that is really nice....that head scult could go either way animated or classics, very nice. Also his stature (short and squatty) would make a nice brawn.

    Holy cow man!
    That's awesome! It's so cool how Animated Sentinel Prime has SUCH a distinct Animated look, but you've somehow managed to remove the animated look from both the truck and bot and give it a really distinct "classics" feel!

    Thanks dude! I was looking for the right blend of recognizable and able to pivot. His original design, although well loved, just doesn't work.

    That's exactly what I was going for. Both his modes are in scale with the other Autobots. He's actually about a 1/8" shorter than Bumblebee.

    Thank you sirs!

    So glad you're a patient man (whew, hehe). I know I love it but the real payoff is if you do. Thanks so much for this opportunity my friend!

    Glad you like and I appreciate your enthusiasm!

    The head is masterful, very creative with the rest as well.

    Very good job - as others have mentioned, this is probably one of (if not the most) successful conversions of an animated figure into the classics/universe aesthetic that I've seen so far (although Wheeljack's Ratchet/Trailbreaker is going along similar lines), what with the robot mode being completely rebuilt
