    Alrighty, after another surgery, and being on my ass for a while, I am finally getting a few more things done. (My PM's are overflowing, so for those who have been trying to get a hold of me:Thanks for your patience, I will get caught up soon!)
    Here is another one of the Technobots: Nosecone! He started out as a Classics Megatron: tank version, and Cybertron Downshift's arms, a few Gundam parts, and a smattering of other bits. Throw in a modded Classics Mirage head, and Nosecone is born! His transformation is a little basic for my taste (tuck in arms, lie down on belly, and your a tank!) but his articulation and overall style are a nice upgrade to one of the brickiest bricks that ever bricked in G1. I added the raising missile launchers to try to emulate his original cannons that were mounted on his sides. I also went for a more sleek, and faster look so that he looks like he could actually keep up with the rest of the Technobots. Included a pic of his "shin" mode, as he is basically going to be the knee down for Computron. It may or may not have an attachable foot pad: it depends on how the proportions work out for the rest of the guys. Enjoy!

    Sculpt-bot, why do you torment us? Not only is this kitbash Aplus-Awesome-Mc-Fly-FLy but something about the way you are painting these d00ds up just looks so bloomin cool.

    I was really worried you weren't going to do the whole team as combiners but you are right? Please say yes.

    Now that I'm done gushing, there is only one thing I' like to suggest. Can you shave off that mold seam on the drill?

    JAF: "yes"

    The seam was taken care of once I noticed it in the pics, I was just too lazy to take new pics. You will see the cleaner version on Computron. It reall wasn't as noticeable in person, and it was only on the bottom side of the drill.

    Strafe and Lightspeed are both at the same stage of completion, but I think I will finish Strafe next. Lightspeed is waiting for a little armament upgrade.
    Thanks guys! Glad you like them. They have been a lot of fun to do.
    I promise Scattershot will be a big surprise, and he is waiting till the end!

    being as I have bought more then a few of your custom heads i KNOW how good your work is. i can imagine these being absolutely stunning in person. cant wait to see these all combined. i like your customs coz they are completely unique. for example if you hadn't have told us it was a classics mirage's head i would never have known. cant wait to see the rest.

    Another stand up job SB. It is a fun new take on him seeing him all stretched out. I can't wait to see what you do with the rest.
