    I took POTP Windcharger and a Roadhandler head from Shapeways and made minor changes, like the chestplate with the hole and removing the front wheels from the arms to glue them to the front of the car. I hate painting, and one thing I hate more tan painting is painting yellow, so not a fine work but it works, the little guy looks nice with masterpieces.
    I'd love if 3parties made legend size masterpiecish micromasters, I'd probably buy the ones that were in the Marvel comic and the ones I had the toy version.

    Cool. Roadhandler is one of my favourites. Hope they make him someday and he's got the trans am alt mode.

    Very nice. Been planning on doing this myself since I saw the head being sold on Shapeways.

    You've (Road)handled it very nicely.

    Dont know why they didn't leave the wheels attached to the hood like you did; it makes the proportions work much better...
    If you have a chance, could you take a pic of what the modded hood looks like on the back of the bot mode? I'm thinking of doing the same thing for a custom Deadend but I'm not sure if it'll work with the other mods I'm thinking of...

    Thanks, happy to be the first at something :) 
    This couldn't be done without your head, which, as you can see, works perfectly, so good job too!

    Damn that's cool! I loved Roadhandler in the comic. You've got me kind of tempted to try this myself.
