    So here's the second mini bot using the BB mold.I was looking at my last Warpath and thought that it would make a better Movieverse Warpath then a Classics one.So I started this little guy.I'm really liking the look so far.He's what I think Warpath would look like,a bad ass tank in alt mode and a short,stalky ass kickin bot in bot mode.

    He's made with a KO Classics BB,Movie Desert Brawl and a Longarm head.I still have a ton of work on him like making a little more clearance for his arms and filling in gaps but here he is for now.Thanks for checking him out!!


    UPDATE:

    TELESCOPED THE BARREL

    Duuuuuude, that's amazing! Only thing I'd like to see is the turret retract a bit in bot mode, but apart from that, it's sheer 100%, grade A, awesomesauce. Can't wait to see him all painted up :thumb

    Rafe, my friend, your work always amazes me! This is a marvel of engineering. It not only looks great, but the way you did this is damn inspiring. It's one of the best Warpath customs I've seen (yours and Earl's are my favorites).

    cant wait to see this finished, making the barrel a little shorter would be nice but it looks great so far

    Warpath... from Bumblebee? Really? You know that's not supposed to work, right?

    IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO WORK!

    I do believe you're defying the laws of nature, son.
    Agreed that it'd be good if you can telescope the barrel so it shortens for robot mode, but this is an incredibly creative piece.

    this is mind blowingly epic man,

    this one of the best classics customs i have seen in a while.

    i hope you figure out a way to telescope the cannon barrel into the chest.

    and it makes me wonder what other minibots you have in the works

    Yes, this guy is great, nice job so far!

    I agree, make the barrel telescope smaller in bot mode, otherwise kick ass!

    It's just amazing how neat the alt mode is...I don't mind not having a telescoping barrel though. Warpath seems like a character who likes to strut his stuff, but if you do manage to accomplish it (which I'm sure you do) that will be simply awesomesauce.

    I don't believe you used a BB figure as a base. The space-time fabric of this universe just tore a hole in it's pants.

    Just to suggest on the barrel front; I don't think it needs to retract into the chest at all. All you'd want is to have it split into two tubes, one which slides into the other, so the barrel can more-or-less halve its length for robot mode. It shouldn't disappear completely into his chest, as that'd rob Warpath of some of his distinctiveness, I just think it could do with being a little less unwieldy, so he doesn't sideswipe his team-mates when he turns round. :p
