    I think this is a great idea. It is very creative and different. Keep up the good work.

    that is awesome!!! Funny story, I picked up a WM, garbage truck at Goodwill this week, didnt pay it much attention. When I started cutting it up with my dremel I about had a heart attack. Little did I know,I had bought the Toy Story 3 electronic dump truck. Next thing I know Lots O' Huggin bear is yelling at me "i dont care what I did I dont, deserve this!" Apparently when you buy it new he sits on front bumper, this one had been broken off. (the vibrations from the dremel set him off)

    Haha! Funny stuff! I looked at that WM truck but I felt it was way too big for a Voyager figure. The pic I have down there is an older test fit of the truck shell. As of now, he is about an inch wider overall. I also will be scratch building the forks and they will convert to battle scythes/sickles for bot mode.

    Man, I would've screamed and thrown that dremel straight into a wall if that had been me.

    Always! He will have red LED eyes, and those six circles on his torso will be orange LEDs

    Truck mode will have headlights and orange blinkers in the light bar.

    Thanks for stopping by!:thumbs2:

    It's about that time someone thought about creating that dump truck on the Dotm movie. Can't wait to see the finished product. Make us proud.
