    I still gotta classicsify :D  the robot parts...
    this involved massive amounts of scraping/carving with a sharpie
    it started out as Scout Movie Deadend I believe!
    Will show more what I did in a few days...
    Only need to go big on how I want the head etc.
    at the moment the shin-covers parts-form, this might not be necessary!

    Digibash Wheelie color basics ;) 

    UPDATE1:
    -replaced a modded hand, still looking for smaller, these where from deluxe old camaro bb
    -modded the feet, remove 1toe and flattened the other
    (I've got a goo idea for the head, but GF parent are coming so less time!)

    UPDATE2:
    Well I reused the default hands by reworked into something less M.Bay!
    The carefully sharpied out the little square hat/cover and modded a head :) 

    UPDATE3:
    Removed the decals on the sides + rear, prepped for paint
    Added exhaust pipes
    Replaced Wheels (not done)
    Did massive modding to the legs so that the flaps form the new shins
    Finally got the head attached, it can go up&down.. no side to side!
    Modified the weapon, giving it an extra barrel/scope/laser-sight thingy..
    I'm still not sure making an engine cover, to give it even more G1 vibe

    I'M SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING MAKING A KIT...
    would people want this? cuz it would mean I need to do some serious pin-removal
    I don't wanna f*ckup for just 1 or 2 handful people??


    UPDATE4:
    Found the perfect wheels :D  only problem I need 2 more, since this mould has differences in size between front and rear :( 
    Anyone knows this particular vehicles name or which repaint I can use?
    Btw I screwed up bigtime @ the window.. need to make repairs!

    UPDATE5:
    Well still no luck finding 2 exact same wheels...
    Started covering up the engine and creating an even more G1 alt flow :)

    Looks very promising, but, are you already deep underway?
    because if it's not to late, I'd suggest using the two-pack version of this mould, which already comes in Wheelie's G1 color scheme, I think it's called Slapdash

    G60. One word. Hands. Replace em. I know there's gotta be a way to have a set of 5MM peg hands that can be ball jointed on the side instead to be able to give him good hands. Otherwise, I LOVE the idea and use of that mold.

    Dude! I've been wanting to do this exact thing pretty much as soon as the orange repaint for that mold came out! The colours and vehicle mode are just about perfect for Wheelie.

    Unfortunately, I only got about as far as you did, flipping the body around and trying to figure out a working alternate transformation... and then got stalled figuring out where to go next. I'll be really interested to see how you proceed with this! :D 

    Is it Slapdash? Maybe Detour? I forget now. But yeah, totally Wheelie colours.

    This is looking awesome! I love it when people turn figures around backwards to get a completely new look. Bravo! Nice head-hood too!

    The E Strongarm head makes a pretty good Wheelie. I used it with a C Clocker for a stand in Wheelie before the U2.0 Legends figure came out.

    Wow, really like what you've done with the head! Makes it look perfect as a Wheelie update! I've always thought that some similar mods would make this mold into a suitable scout sized Lightspeed as well...

    Wow had that figure to, but didn't transform him yet :D !

    Well, I DO love a good reverse transformation, and this IS a good reverse transformation. Pretty sure I've got the Orange version kicking around someplace too.

    If there weren't 6 dozen 3rd party wheelies to pick from, I might give this a go...

    This is looking great G. However, I too feel the hands needs some thing else...they are too movie-ish.

    The head swap is a good choice though.
