    Nothing crazy here, but I had that Orion Pax head laying around, so I did this, as it seemed to just work.

    Enjoy mates!

    That works surprisingly well, especially the head swap.

    You know, I really like this! It's nice to see Orion as something other than a truck!

    Very nice. Nice idea to swap Swerve's legs with movie Clocker's.

    Also a nice roundabout homage to G2 Gobot Optimus.

    That said... good stuff.

    Awesome idea! Excellent use of that mold, too.

    Thnx...Cybertron/Galaxyforce has that pre WfC/FoC look...just not so angled and hard-lined.

    Aye thanks! I wanted an orion pax for my collection, and not one of the figures that came out had really fit the bill (I'm looking at you HasTak!!! Not 1 fully realized G1 cartoon Orion?)...this one does not really fit either...but at least I've got one for now...

    Thank you. I opted the car only because I was messing around with swerve for another custom concept, and I then had this idea...so I ran with it.

    Thanks! I had not even thought about GoBot Optimus...niiice!

    Thanks mate!

    Thanks man!
    Yeah..I don't care what anyone says...both, he and stealth Megatron, are really bad figs...I get what they were trying to do...but Orion looked like some weird Earth truck rather than a real Cybertronian vehicle, and way too many ques to Optimus without a face plate... Orion was (according to G1 cartoon lore) totally rebuilt into Prime...he should have hints, not direct parallels.

    Hey thanks bro!
