    Been working on this off and on for a while now. Hopefully I'll get this one done in time for BotCon.

    I'm using the Dodge Ram mold to make a Trophy Truck version.

    I'm using some 1:24 scale 44" tires. Major mods include extending the fenders, the roll cage in the bed, and some extra detailing. I still have to redo the suspension, so it'll sit a little higher than what the pics show.

    For the bot, I'm planning on doing Minions shoulder mod so the doors will fold out similar to most Alts. I plan on also redoing the legs the legs will fold out rather that extend and the bed of the truck will be the front of the legs. The front of the roll cage wil be the toes.

    Anyway, on to the pics!

    I haven't decided on a character yet. I was thinking Gears or Motormaster. MM would be nice becasue he's a Con and I wouldn't mind increasing the ranks in my collection. But I think when it's all said and done, it'll really scream Gears. Dunno yet.

    I think the perfect name for an off-road monster such as that would be Roadbuster.

    I want one of these. It's certainly more fitting for Prime, than truck with a wing on the back.

    Paint it blue and call it Roadkill! I just say that because a friend of mine's fan-character is a monster-truck of that type. Granted, this isn't a monster truck, but meh. ;) 

    Great work as always. This can do nothing else but turn out cool.

    Wow, off to a nice start!! I can see Gears in it already, though Motormaster would be pretty cool. If Gears got an upgrade like that he'd have less to complain about! ;)

    Damn Lobo, That's awesome :thumb 

    I've been wondering when some one was going to turn Optimus into a 4x4, but hell you went twenty steps past that. Great Work...

    That rules man. Definitely Gears, IMO. I just so happen to be sculpting up a Gears head right now.
    Is that Apoxy Sculpt your using on the body mods? I LOVE that stuff! Using it on a Alt Swindle to Springer bash that I am doing. LOTS of body work on that, and the Apoxy has made it much cleaner.
    Looking forward to the finished product on this!
