    Hey guys, i just finished up a project this weekend. I have taken 3 RiD Laser Cycle Axers and made them into part of my Cybertronian Police. I'm getting ready to start grad school back for the year, so I don't see myself having the time to make a gallery for a little while. Along the same vein, I'd like to thank Redline for his nice work on editing one of my photos in PS (which gives me even more of a good reason to make a full gallery soon!).

    As most of you guys know, I'm mainly into Alt customs and these bots are now integrated into the rest of my work. These guys are about a 1:20 scale (they're not hardly big enough to scale with the G.I. Joes, but they're a bit bigger than that Alts/Bts which are of course 1:24). I have my 20th Prime and MP-2 displayed with my Alts/Bts (about 1/28th scale), so as long as the scale is + or - just a small portion, I'm fine.

    I was also going to wait to post my work until I named each of these three bots, but I decided that it would be fun to go ahead and share my work (and if any of you have any suggestions for names [without references to CHiPs), I'll be glad to honor any suggestions and credit any of you who come up with names.

    Anyways, I present to you my Alt Cybertronian Police Motorcycle Patrol

    Those look great. :thumb  Are there any other difference between the three besides the numbering on them?

    Hey man, thanks for the kind words! I really appreciate it!

    No, they are identical except for their numbering. I really wanted to go for something along the lines of being uniform with these guys.

    I feel like I'm suggesting a pretty "run-its-course" idea here, but if you ever decided to slightly alter the paint scheme, you could do these two up as Runabout & Runamuck. Just an idea.

    That's a good idea, but I made this a few months back and I also want to make his cohort very soon as well. I really appreciate your input and sharing your ideas though, Ops! Thanks man!

    Those look sweet!! Nice job!

    Name suggestions:
    Groove (squad leader)
    Cover Unit [police term for officer assigned to assist; roving (not beat unit)]


    I tried to find some other police terms that would make good names (and haven't been used for other police TFs), but I'm not having any luck and it's getting late.

    Whoa there, a cop named High? Not unless he's on the Narcotics Unit!

    As for name suggestions, I'd say if they are going to be "connected" in some way just give them a Borg type name like "083 out of 100," and save yourself the trouble of naming them.

    I like Chase quite well. "So that's what you'll be called! Chase!"

    I like Speed Trap as well! "So that's what you'll be called! Speed Trap!

    So, I'm still working on a third name. I'm mulling around Roadblock and Streetstar. Magnum sounds cool too. Escort and Bullet are considerations as well.

    I want to stay away from "Road Pig" because I am trying to stay away totally from any negative connotations for police officers. Call me oldskool, but part of my Cybertronian Police project is to recapture some of the positive and heroic feelings I've always had concerning police officers and what they do.

    Thanks again for all of your comments and suggestions on my work! Much appreciated!

    Well, since ROADPIG is out for the third one, what about Radar, or Ka, after the radar band used in most radar guns? Hmm... Nighstick would be my name for the third one.
