    Sp I've been assembling materials these past couple of weeks amidst my moving and whatnot to attempt my first kitbash (because I'm missing a psare seeker to do Titanium Soundwave up right). I was going to turn Rodimus into Sideswipe. I'd seen this done before and liked to looks of it and I've got a Titanium rodimus Prime I snagged last week to fill the slot.

    Then I heard about the marvelous news of Classics 2.0, and (after I put on a new pair of pants because I soiled them) saw that we're going to get a Sideswipe next year. I'm a real stickler for having one of any given character, so if they release a Classics Magnus later on that's more thana repaint, mine will become a Nemesis Prime, most likey, but I digress.

    I'm now thinking about the merits of turning my Rodimus into Tracks. To my knowledge, it's never been done before, and I think with a little tweaking that the mold would lend itself well to the character. Any thought/input?

    Interesting but I think that the Bumblebee mold would work better with the legs reversed.

    Why's that? Tracks was a corvette type car, I tihnk the Bumblebee would tame him a bit.


    Hmmm... Thinking I'll digibash this first.

    That's always a smart thing to do before starting a kitbash :wink:

    Cool. I'm not a big Tracks fan and I think that would look awesome when done.

    The Rodimus mold? I'm not too sure about that one.

    But by all means, prove me wrong! :thumb

    Tracks kind of annoys me, but I've got the parts and the figure and I want to something to hold me over til I scrape up a Ramjet, and I think this can turn out really nice. I'll start work as soon as I finish unpacking my new place, I do believe.

    Cool, can't wait to see it done. I have some ideas on doing my own but I got some planning to do before I try it.

    I think because the basic transformation scheme--minus the legs/feet as Milkman stated--more closely resembles G1 Tracks.

    That said, I do think the alt mode and overall bot-mode proportions of Rodimus better suits a Tracks kitbash.

    I'm almost finished unpacking the house, so I can start this bad boy... but then I found a ramjet that I'm going to scrap for parts to fix Tit Soundwave's diaper crotch, and that just totally takes priority over Tracks.

    I am thinking of dismantling him for this though. I've never completely disassembled a TF for painting before. I normally just use a brush and call it a day, but since the ENTIRE bot must be painted blue, I thought it best to dismantle.

    Anyone took him apart before? Does it suck? It sucks, doesn't it?
