    Classics Scrounge DONE!!!!

    this has been a long time coming, for me. ive had this idea in the back of my head for a while, even saw a few mock-ups. and had a head made up which wasnt to my liking but after much brainstorming and help from friends i present to you Classics Scrounge........not entirely finished yet.

    this is a joint effort between me, possessed_digit, and soon to be finished by the very talented sonOfnemesis.

    we removed cosmos head and substituted it for a lego mission to mars head the head completely retracts when in wheel mode. it also has a cover which not only becomes his backpack but has a minicon port on it. he now has flip out hands and speaking of hands, he also has his special hand. and a custom stand was made for him to stand upright in wheel mode. final updates and gallery will be available when paining is complete, so dont mind those pretty wierd looking eyes on the head

    howdy, just checking in. Shadow Panther asked me to do some mod work for this guy. it was his idea, but i did the customizing. initially, he just wanted the head to pop on & off for wheel mode. but im a 'balls to the walls' guy. its either make it or break it with me(break it happens a lot more than i'd like tho). anyway, i figured i could hollow out the chest enough to fit the head inside. but since it stuck out just a tad, i made the wheel cover. simple hinge on it to pivot back, and it connects to Scrounge's 'butt' so it actually works as a backpack too. and, since it had the post on the cover already, it doubles as a minicon/ energon weapon port. the head is now on a ball joint, on a long post that slides up & down the chest for conversion. the hands are from a minicon classics Grindor(the monster truck guy), and have metal pins thru them to flip out in robot mode. the fingers are on 1 simple plastic tie, bent in half, and the fingers themselves are sprue bits. the finges just fold up in wheel more, or can double as a stand(like a picture frame stand). i also quick whipped up the free-stand, just in case SP wanted it. a simple cylinder(from a insulin syringe cap - cat has diabetes) on a piece of plastic, screwed together. a fun little custom that actually works well with the mold. id make 1 for myself, if i didnt have to sell a kidney for a spare cosmos lol. maybe hasbro will someday make a scrounge repaint, and save me some headache. and painting!

    it's odd that this is the first time we've seen this mold become this character. (or at least, the first time I'VE seen it)

    Good lookin' out!!!

    Okay I must admit, there was a mighty squee when I saw the title and image for this!
    For starters... SCROUNGE!! For seconds... well, still scrounge, but also how he showed us what life was like for the Autobots on Cybertron, both those who went solo and those who did not.
    Also, guy turned into a WHEEL, that is cool^^
