    has anyone done/thought of this yet? i think it'd work real well:

    - the dodge magnum derivative has similarities with a hearse
    - it already has the proton gun hand
    - also, the roof rack would become the proton backpack

    whaddaya guys think? might post a digibash soon. you guys are welcomed to try too.

    edit: crap, wrong forum. suppose to be in the kitbash forum. a li'l help?

    Thanks goes to King Starscream for doing these ^_^ the transformation is loosely based off of Red Alert.

    I have a good idea for him. He can be an Autobot from Earth named Lightshow.
    He was Crosswise' partner in Monster Hunting throughout our history, but come up missing when Crosswise was frozen in ice. Most of Crosswise' equipment come from him, as he built it in his spare time, but he preferred to specialize in trapping Decepticons who were disembodied sparks, still terrorizing humans and their enemies.

    This has GOT to be done! I think it's a great idea. One thing though. Ecto-1 is not a hearse. Ecto-1 is an old ambulance.

    I've looked into doing this as my first real kitbash, but I haven't been able to find a proper scale ecto-1 kit to "re-shell" him with.

    I think an actual ecto-1 vehicle mode would be way cooler than red alert just painted to look that way.

    That particular model of Cadillac was sold as both a hearse and an ambulance. If you watch the forst movie, it was most deffinitely a hearse. I've not seen too many black ambulances.

    But anyway, it is a cool idea. I really like the 'Conbusters logo on that digibash. :thumb

    Made my point before could.

    I've been around enough GB message boards to have the fact that it was an ambulance drilled into my head.

    Same difference. The same model of cars that the Ecto-1 was based off of were not only used for ambulances, but heares as well. Ambulances were originally a hearse to carry the body to the hospital, as they didn't generally provide any "life saving" services other then just faster transportation.

    Not the same. As a ghost busters fan, I can tell you that the car was an ambulance. People think it was a hearse because it seemed to make more sense and because the cartoon said it was, though it was not. As was said, when was the last time you saw a hearse with a siren and lights. It's an ambulance. The lights and siren were on it when Ray drives it up to the fire house.

    Does anyone here think this could actually get done? It's actually a brilliant idea and should be passed on to someone that can make it happen. t think a wholel ine of transformers based on famous movie cars would be great. They are doing it with star wars.

    Before getting off-thread, I just have to say that's a great idea and some very cool images! I hope you do a tangible kitbash of it, it would be pretty fantastic!

    I doubt it would actually happen, as Ghostbusters (while a great movie) is also a fairly old movie. The only way it would happen is if, as you say, they did a line of "famous Hollywood cars" that transform. And there's a right way and a wrong way to do it. I think what makes this one work better (and the thing that fails in the SW line) is that it doesn't transform into an actual movie character.... it's an original character in its own right. Because, really, that's why people love those movie cars.... they have so much personality, they become their own supporting characters. I wouldn't want to see Ecto-1 transform into Peter Venkman, though.

    So, while I don't think a line like that will ever happen, there sure would be a lot to choose from: Ecto-1, KITT, the BTTF DeLorean, The A-Team Van (and hey, you could do a repaint of that one as the best ever Ironhide), the Bullitt Mustang, the General Lee, the Mystery Machine, Speed Racer's Mach V, Herbie, the Maximum Overdrive truck..... and hell, that's just the stuff from the 70's and 80's.

    What about the Magnum P.I. Ferrari or the car from Smokey & the Bandit?

    BTW, the Ecto-1 TF drawing is fantastic!
