    created from a energon inferno.the mods done are
    original 6 wheel deal was removed and replaced with 4 biggun's from armada prime.
    ladder from g1 inferno was added to his water cannon and can still telescope out 3 times it's length.
    bits and pieces were added to help him more resemble the original hosehead.
    g1 stlye tech specs were added under his front flip up plate.
    a g1 micromaster combiner(i think from the moonpatrol,specifically the rear half of the red guys that used to have a tiny missile on it)was butchered then had a face cut from some kind of power rangers fella grafted to him.
    lug attaches to hosehead with strong magnets.he can also attach to hosehead in vehicle mode to the front of his ladder,creating a sort of "manlift" bucket.the black rifle is made from energon prowl,but with a few small bits added to help it more resemble g1 hosehead's rifle.all paints are a combination of automotive enamels and tamiya acrylics.all has been clearcoated with krylon clear,then panel lined.some of the smaller details like the vehicle windows and tech specs are done with hand cut avery vinyls.

    Awesome. The thing I HATED about this mold originally was the visible head in the alt. mode, you have solved this and made the mold work. I might just rip off your idea. Nice!

    Nice!

    Part of me is saying "Who cares about Hose-Head???" but I really have to say that it's nice to see somebody using this mold for something cool. :)

    Creative use of the Micromaster. I like how you also found a way to integrate him into Hosehead's vehicle mode.

    Maybe more painted details could be added to the gray box that forms the back of Hosehead's helmet?

    This is a really good mold for Hosehead. Hasbro could easily modify this and add a headmaster and it would sell.
