    I first saw Warpath used as Hardhead by Purple-bot and I thought it was not only a really awesome custom, but a much, MUCH better character for Warpath's mold IMO. I had to have a go at it so here's mine...

    I mimicked PP's mounted cannon mod and then also put Jazz's head on a ball joint. With a tiny bit of rear head sanding, Jazz's head transforms perfectly into place.

    I also sanded down some details on his shoulders, chest, and shins in order to place cut pieces of styrene on top to give him more of a distinct look against Warpath.

    The handguns came from the BTS 3rd party Optimus Prime trailer I believe. They had to be sanded a bit in the rears in order to properly fit into his hands. The pegs match his fist holes perfectly.

    He is transformable, can't wait to paint him up!!

    Make sure you check out Purple-bot's Hardhead as well as his was the inspiration for mine:

    I knew there was a reason I wanted another Warpath!
