    MAJOR UPDATE ON PAGE 2

    Ok, so finally got some parts in and started work on him. Sheesh, lot more work than I thought. Already started over from scratch three times. And, wouldn't be surprised if I had to do it again.

    Parts list:

    4" Porche police car (couldn't find a fairlady or equivelent)
    Cybertron Clocker (arms/legs)
    Cybertron Strongarm (head)
    Energon Wideload (Connector port)

    So, here's what I have so far. Anyone with advice please feel free to chime in.
    Particularly on how to fill gaps.

    My biggest gripe with what you've got so far is how far forward his head is. It's unnatural looking.
    Other than that, it looks like a great start!

    I love the overall look of it and the vehicle mode, but the only gripe I have is with the heads positioning :(  i do wish you coul find a way to place it further back,it would make this figure so much better :D

    Not sure. Some hold screws, some pins, some hands. Hard to say, bit I think thats the head can. They work great for these purposes.

    Update with pics

    Found a car that I like much more than the Porche, maybe I'll use it for a scout class Jazz later.

    So, started all over, again, and having some problems with clearance but I'm pretty sure this is the version I'll be settling with.
    Now all I have to do is find the time to finish him. I still have insecticons and Computron to do.

    As always, C and C welcome and encouraged.

    Got the bot parts assembled

    Now all that's left is to fit it all inside of the vehicle shell and fill/sand.
    Wish me luck
