    So this is something I've been tinkering with while waiting for commissions to dry. Orion Pax! What if that fateful day we witnessed in War Dawn, it was Dion who was destroyed and Magnus was born? Naturaly Orion Pax would follow his best friend anywhere. From there the story is the same. The autobots leave aboard the Ark looking for more resources under Magnus' leadership and crash to earth.
    The head is a WFC Bumblebee modded with styrene and the forearms are seeker missle launchers. I wanted the front end to look like a much different mold than Ironhide so I reworked it a bit. Also modded the feet a bit and swapped the legs. Transformation is the same with no affect on alt mode. Can't do anything about the "jigsaw" look to this turd of a model. Going to change the rear side windows to one solid panel. HEAD IS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE!!

    Wow. Creative idea and you did a great job of incorporating the robot mode color scheme into colors that would realistically be on the alt. mode

    Very interesting man! I like the color choices, they flow well! Looks similar to FrogDNA'a style in a way.

    Man Spoony that is a really cool idea and excellent execution! I knew I recognized those forearms then I read your post, seeker missile launchers are genius. I really set this guy apart from Ironhide with all of your changes :thumb  Definitely the best Pax head I've seen so far, I may be PMing you about that. I wonder if it would fit easily one the E. Towline mold

    I really like this a lot. It's very polished-looking, and I think it's cool you went with more subdued than bright colors. Great work on the head, too, it's just right!

    This a very cool idea. Love that head sculpt, i've been looking for a good head for Orion Pax for a while now.
    I may have to try this one myself, but i may turn the truck around and get rid of the hood and front windshield so it loooks more like a truck with a van front. I may also change out its wheels with WFC Bumblebee to give it more of a WFC look.
    How much is the head going for? $$$$
