    This is my MUCH anticipated Ecto-1 Transformer commission for Demonss! These are some teaser images for those who feared the project was dead and espescially for Demonss who's been patient to the point of sainthood ;)

    Loving it! It's pretty clear that you want this thing to work well, and it does so far. I've imagined a Ecto-1 TF, but I could never build it like this. I can't wait to see more.

    The translucent PCC minicons would be great stand-ins for ghosts. Just a random thought: Goggles on the robot head may be a fun reference to Ray's look in the film. I imagine you've got a billion better ideas floating around, though!

    This is the picture I requested Allen to go off of as he puts this guy together..

    So far so good. I imagine goggles will be there. :)

    Thanks mate!

    Thanks bud! Crazy ain't the word. It went through 4 iterations before getting to this point and has even changed since.


    Soon enough sir!

    Oh what, you don't hate me? Hahaaa

    You me and Demonss. But I certainly don't want to rush it. Thanks man!

    Thanks dude. I've had a lot of the framework done for a while but nothing really worth posting.

    It will indeed have a trap. No plans to make it transform as a Minicon tho.

    Thanks!

    Thanks. Fingers crossed the rest comes out as planned. Had a lot of setbacks before this point.

    You got it J! So sorry for the delay but I seriously hope this makes it worth it for ya.

    Thanks guys!

    It actually already does have the ecto-goggles which will be able to flip up or down. As for ghosts, I plan on a Kremzeek/Slimer.

    Thanks, Justin. Hearing that really makes all this work worth the effort!

    Ahh! It just got even more impressive! That artwork is great and the custom really is close! Even if it wasn't, it still looks so fantastic!

    The goggles are so fun, I can't wait to see it. And the Kremzeek Slimer is pure, simple brilliance.

    Love the "frankensteining" that you got going on here! It is really hard to find the perfect part when you are building something. You've nailed it, and have a nice tight fit in Alt mode, which is also extremely hard!
    This isn't a custom; it's engineering a brand new figure! great work!
