    I decided this guy was so cool that he needed his own thread. I've seen a several different builds of this character and wanted to do something at least a little different. Started with Energon Kickback as the base, used bike pieces from a G2 Road Pig KO, but the head comes from classics Hook.
    Had a beast of a time figuring out the head placement. Finally notched the seat and put in under opposite the front forks. Really looking forward to getting him filled in, cleaned up and painted to see how it turns out. More so than the other four. Any critique/advice is more than apprecieated.

    If your going by that logic, shouldn't all of your guys have their own thread?

    Update

    Ok, so, got some paint down. Out of red so still needs the arm stripes. But once I get the exhaust mounted I think that'll be about it.

    Wow! That turned out way better Than I expected, and I expected it to be realy good, the motorcycle mode is soooooo deliciously g1 and the bot mode as well :D  the paints the only thing I think that you could possibly improve on (I'm not judging I'm still quite the newbie with painting as well :$ )
