    I don't know man... The silly squat body of ROTF Mudflap doesnt look like it will work with a more traditional head. Then again I've seen you pull together good custom jobs from other ideas I thought wouldn't work out well before.

    Great choice for the head. Been saving mine for the same thing.

    I'm not feeling it. Not for a Classics Skids.

    I've only got parts and haven't done extensive work to it yet, but what I've got planned is the upper body of Universe Prowl (via Bluestreak) and the lower body of RTS Jazz. Reshelled with the alt mode of DotM Mudflap, and given some cosmetic touches to look a bit more like a Honda Fit/Jazz.

    For you and/or the original poster - what figure is that head from? For whatever reason, I'm drawing a blank here.

    Yeah, I'm with Unicron and Kusangai on this one. I just don't get the Classics vibe from most of the figures from the movie lines. Great choice for the head though.

    I've seen someone use the RotF Skids to reshell a RtS Perceptor before for an updated Classics Skids, but that was technically uses robot bits from a CHUG figure.

    Give him a chance guys. It's still a little too movie right now to be Classics, but it's starting to show potential. The only thing right now that screams MOVIE to me are the panels on the arms and the entire legs, but, with a little creative boxing of styrene, that can very easily be fixed. Personally, I can't wait to see how it looks finished :)

    I think it looks really good, actually. Just make it blue and it'll look a lot better.


    And really, Mudflap isn't that bad.

    Hey its looking better now. Maybe a bit more modding toward the classics look and this could work.

    Just a question, are you planning on turning the toes into one solid foot like the G1 version, or keeping them separated like that? I'm just thinking that it would be a big improvement to fill that in, shape it, sand it smooth, and then paint it all the same color.

    Also, do you plan to modify the shoulders? The shoulders just bug me ;)
