    So after decapitating my Swindle to make a Trailbreaker, I thought to myself, hmmmmm what can Swindle become???

    How about, a Combiner Wars inspired Alternators Dragstrip??? (but an off-road version)


    - One set of CW Dragstrip reprolabels
    - One Dragstrip ConstructBots head


    Offroad mode:

    Nicely done, but I'm not feeling it as dragstrip. He's meant to be a day F1 or equiv car. Perhaps if the alt mode was a long, elongated Bahja buggy?

    I hear ya....it was more a decision based on sheer color and having the Dragstrip head available.

    The leap of faith you need to make is that it races in dirt, rather than a track. lol

    Lovely stuff, I think this works much better as an all new character. "Gearjammer" would be a fitting name I think.

    I can see why you may feel this way, but this custom really pulls off Drag Strip well. The idea of a racing Jeep is a clever one, and there's no denying that robot is the said character.

    Good work and I hope we see more :)

    Update:

    Added larger race numbers on the door, to reflect a more racecar (or jeep) look. ....matches the hood deco too.
