    Dragstrip proved to be my most difficult Stunticon to obtain and modify. If there was any less room to work with I doubt I could have still achieved the same result. I switched his head with Breakdown's as it was much closer to Dragstrip's cartoon head. I then put a metal pin through his head, glued it in place, then flattened and shaped the ends to be more cartoon accurate. His decals are courtesy of reprolabels.com. The orange pinstripes were actually from Hotspot's portion of the Defensor repro label sheet. I cut two thin strips from the area surrounding the flaming ball decal.

    oh man, I LOVE it! He'd look so good standing next to my Classics version, and he's nearly as poseable too!

    Redline - The poseability is great indeed. I did consider giving his feet balljoints like the Classics Mirage, but I decided it was unecessary and intrusive. I'm still happy with it though!

    Ptitvite: Yes, the shoulder joints are from some bootleg Aerialbots. They fit the transformation scheme I had in mind and they were very non-intrusive.

    Superquad7: I'm glad I did one of your favorites justice! When I finally got one I think I enjoyed him more than the other Stunticons.
