    He started life as an Energon Wideload. Took parts from a G2 Lazer Cycle, Cybertron Blurr, and a few odds and ends from the parts box.
    Really trying for a build like nobody has done.

    Still need to redo the left hand and do a little clean up then wait for the rest of the team to get done and off to paint.

    C&C welcome.

    Thanks for looking.

    Hey appreciate that. I think this team will be my first build that I get professionally painted
    (Depending on cost) so need to finish the whole team first.

    Wow, this is a pretty heavy scratch build! You're off to a really good start.

    I guess you're planning a combiner based on the connector piece I see. :) 

    Only criticism is where the front wheel meets his hood...it seems just kind of added on, it doesn't flow as much as the rest of the figure. Maybe you could sculpt something around it to integrate it more? Alternatively maybe it's just a little too far up...if it joined into the figure a little lower, like below the hood level, that might look better, in my humble opinion.

    Thanks Brut. Couldn't quite put my finger on what was missing. Had to keep it up high to get the bot-mode work like I wanted. But it just dont flow right. The up and down are tight space wise but would it look better if it sculpted somethin from left to right?

    Pretty neat... I'd add a swivel or something so that the front wheel bars look better attached onto the figure then they are atm.

    Also... ever look into using Cybertron Ransack for parts? I know it's been modded to make an Afterburner before... tho I'm unsure how much larger your custom is compared to the puny Ransack tho...

    Ransack is out. Like I said before I really wanna do something no 1 else is done If it works it works if not well I tried. but I am making a few minor changes and hopefully that makes it flow better
