    I've seen this custom done several times so I decided to try my hand at it. Seaspray was made from Cybertron Shortround, which involved quite a bit of cutting and pasting. That's something I'm not too comfortable with but I managed to make it work. I had to mod the handle of his gun so that it could fit onto the vehicle mode with the modded head. Now, if only I can figure out a way to give him proper hands...

    So, I assume he'll make his way into your comic eventually, correct?

    Super nice job.

    I did this mod, a while back, so I will show you what I did. for hands. Maybe you can do it better. I didn't keep the front wheel but I see that you did.

    I used a Stikfas, hand, because it was small enough and had a small ball joint but A few people commented that they didn't like it since it wasn't a "true" hand. It works for me.


    I attached the ball joint to the forearm which allowed the hand to fold back into what space I could carve out of the underbelly of Shortround.

    I trimmed down the, upper/back, crotch area for room to keep the forearm as long as possible. Then I cut out what little space was available in the shoulder pieces.

    Now Seaspray has hands.

    I didn't use the origonal gun but I made the engines into guns.

    Some people have commented on buying ball joints so pehaps it is possible to purchase a small ball joint and add a small hand.

    Hopefully this helps you finish your seaspray

    Good luck.

    Look'n cool! I always loved Seaspray. Maybe some clean up on his feet. Use some white to go over the blue overrun. Other then that, cool!
