    this bot was built on the side while paint on other fun stuff has been drying.in total it only took 2 days on and off to make.it actually took longer to paint him than to gut him/mod him/butcher him
    sacrificed are a junker g1 twintwist,tftm07 wreckage for the arms and classics astrotrain for the upper thighs.both of his lower legs used to have giant hollow cavities inside which are now filled with shortstrand fiber glass just for extra lower body weight.his neck joint is also salvaged from astrotrain.base sprayed with automotive matte black enamel,then drybrushed with tamiya acrylics,finally coated with krylon satin/matte clearcoat.i may end up doing something to help fill in his calves a bit in the future.i just can't decide what to do therehis gun is made fom a ko g1 prime rifle that's been heavily modded.his shoulder mounted rocket pods are from cybertron defense force hotshot and can be flipped up in tank mode too.

    That is freaking COOL. Well done! He looks lean and mean.... and the alt mode is perfect (and, dare I say it, adorable).

    I like that you gave an old junker G1 Twintwist new life. And it pays off.

    This is awesome! And so simple it's brilliant! You could do exactly the same to Topspin too.

    Wow great job on this guy. 'm not a fan of that dirty drybrush look really but aside from that all the modding and updates look really well done. I have to continue the notion of bring us a topspin too, he was one of my first 'transformers' if you can actually call him one :D

    You've done an awesome job of breathing life back into this mold, I've always loved Top Spin and this guy rules.

    Very cool! The only thing I'd say is that you could add some meat back into his lower legs, since the drills don't need that room anymore.
