    Alright my fellow customizers!
    Heres something i'm working on aswell as my Leader Class Starscream. Crankcase is on hold for now untill i get more time :) 
    So anyhow, here we have my custom Crowbar so far...
    Alot of ideas came to mind on how i would do the long dreads he had on his back.
    Few of you may already know I had some thoughts on using string.
    I had a look at some of my materials and i had some thin durable wires for a plug on an old router. These have worked exceptionally well! Thing i love about these wires is that they give him that wild look he had in the movie with them flailing around everywhere behind him as he sprints on the highyway :D 
    I know they were a tad bit thicker in the movie but i think this looks fine.

    -First thing i did was remove Crankcase's spikes on his back from the ball joints so you just have the hinges.
    -Then dremeled a hole big enough to fit 2 of the wires.
    -Glued the wires in and glued another on top of the 2 wires.
    -To avoid him being back heavy i tightend up the pin joint on the hood of the SUV mode.
    Thing is, i didn't want his alternate mode to have wires sticking out. So i really like how the hinges are easy to remove. Its alot better now that they can be attached when transformed. I will be resculpting some of the body and most of his head so There wont be that "Oh you just cut off Crankcase's dreads and made some long ones to fit on his back" Look lol.
    Thats how i did Crowbars dreads. So simple. I'm pretty happy with the way this is coming along and i hope you like the look of him so far!

    Pretty cool. Aside from needing an all new molded head it is pretty sweet looking.
