    Assigning Autobots to various cities groove gets assigned to Racon City. What turns from a nice peaceful patrol jobs turns into a nightmare. . . .

    Yet another of my Coming out of retirement pieces.

    Conundrum was the originator of thsi piece and it can be viewed here:

    I found the base body for Groove at a Family Dollar in a 2 pack with another bike. He had the perfect CHiPs look to him so I decided to give it a shot. For a Dollar store TF these guys are actually very well built. The only piece that needed tightening was the kick stand.

    I resculpted the head to look more like the original G1 characters and even gave him his gold glasses (on a gol face mind you). The glasses where painted a different shade than his face so they would stand out a bit.

    I added decals to the side that said police and altered one to go into the slot on the opposite side. Just as I was searching for a star to put on the gas tank I had a rather random idea of tossing Groove into Raccon City! I used S.T.A.R.S police logos on Groove to give him the RE feel. even thoghut about giving him a few blood splashs but opted not to so he could keep nice and clean looking!

    I like it. So we have zombie humans on one side, and then Groove. If only we could figure out a way for the Transzombies (wtf is it a computer virus?) to infest the same city. Then we'd have undead galore for both biological and robotic life-forms.

    it'd be bad enough with just zombie humans cos Groove would be trying desperately to protect those that have yet to be got.

    the extra articulation suits him.

    That's one of the best molds ever. it's Axer, and usually has a light up nightstick. A really tiny Decepticon. Awesome take on this guy.

    Thanks, but you didnt have to. Yours is leaps and bounds beyond my feeble attempt. At the very least, im glad you took my idea and turned it into something awesome.
