    Hey Gang!

    Well, here's another project from the past that I recently dug up again. This WHEELIE is inspired by & done with the consent of the amazing Mr. WHEEL JACK & based on his original version ( Thanks again my friend! :rock  ) .

    I wanted to have my own but I didn't wanna take anything away from Wheel Jacks either so I'm gonna do a lot of stuff differently. Here's my "laundry list":

    AUTOBOT "WHEELIE" x-tras:


    1- New head sculpt with L.E.D. insert for lite-pipe eyes

    2- Battery pack for eye L.E.D. in rear portion of car

    3- Multiple hand types

    4- Forward raked roofline "wing"

    5- Downward & sideways raked front end *

    6- Double-hinged side panels*

    7- Hinged chest "windshield" hides removable energon slingshot

    8- L.E.D. lit "headlites" with accompanying battery pack for each. Battery packs will be located in the hollow on the back of the leg just below the knee. Switch(s) TBD

    9- New, poseable arms

    10- Extended feet


    Comments & crits are always welcome!

    Cheers!

    MASTERFUL.

    I'm working on a Classics Bumblebee from this same mold, and seeing this just makes me feel very lazy and sloppy. The work you've done here is fantastic.
