    I acutally made this one years ago, but I never posted it, and now since I am trying to sell it, I figure at least I will show it first. In any event. I basically stripped off the doors and the rollbars and added the reprolabels set. The shoulder launcher is made from a "Skeleton Warriors" missle launcher, a gun handle from a Jetfire bootleg, and a missle from A Bonecrusher knockoff. The engine block thing on the front is from a hacked-up Sideswipe Alt. Gun. Spike is out of scale, but he looks ok standing next to him. Check out the pics, let me know what you think.

    That looks good. He's definitely G1ified. Spike looks good too

    Nah, it's a frankenstein of some Valor Vs. Venom GI Joes. I think it's a Barrel Roll head with Cobra commander legs and Duke arms ( I made this like 3 years ago, so my memroy is a bit fuzzy)

    Yeah, Shia has been doing push-ups, huh? LOL. Looks great though, like the extra weaponry.

    Thanks, I would like at some point to make an Alt-scale Spike, as well as some of the other humans, but I don't know where to find figures that are the correct size

    Thanks, I'm actually surprised how close the shoulder launcher and the vehicle gun came to looking like the original. If anyone is wondering, the gun in vehicle mode is from the GI joe Patriot Grizzly tank

    After I took these pictures, the engine block came off, so I didn't feel right listing it until i fixed it. Didn't want to misrepresent the item. Sorry

    I'm amused how the removal of the doors and rollbar kibble not only makes him look more accurate in jeep mode, but improves the robot mode as well.

    I've seen some humans done from MASK figures before. they weren't too posable but the scale was about right. They'd pulled the legs off to get them in the Alts, not sure of the long term effect of doing that time and time again. They were made up as the human forms that springer, arcee and the others adopt in the cartoon......just googled it...the episode is 'only human'

    Yeah, I thought about that, or maybe the human figures from the movie box sets from last year.
