    So in between commissions I tool around with stuff. I looked around to see if it had been done already and Alphamagnus did use the mold, but I am taking mine in a total 180*
    WFC Cliffy is the base. A recast of Astrotrains noggin, Oversized KO Grimmys forearms and some Bionicle balljoints were added. Made a lower jaw on styrene hinges that folds down to become the codpiece and removed all the wheels. Going to bring the forearms in a bit more since he looks a little wide. I think the Ratrap tail is just a stand-in for the actual one. Gonna add some nasty chompers, fins, some gills and all that and he will be ebay bound in no time!

    Updates

    Thanks guys! Here are some updates. ROTF Ravage gave his spikes and Treadshot gave a tail wing for the fin. Brought the forearms in and added a better tail. Honestly, this whole thing took me about an hour. Cool little project while waiting for paint to dry!

    Good eye there Spoon! This looks like another winner.

    Now I have something to use the WFC Cliffjumper body for (now headless)

    Excellent job, takes a special skill to look at something like Cliffjumper and think - Sharkticon!
