    There he is, Farm Convoy! My one and only custom to this day. Based on a KO, changed the head, repainted the limbs, added an exhaust pipe/sword/hitch.

    I remember seeing a transformable die-cast John Deere farm tractor on Ebay a few years ago, I think it was made by Maisto, I'm still looking for one!

    I did that custom last year btw. :) 

    That KO (well, it's technically not one since it's not based on a legit Transformer) is actually part of a combiner team with construction vehicles, but I got rid of the connectors. I like how the chest makes him look like Binaltech Convoy.

    It is painted... :)  I left the red and grey plastic bits as is, had to repaint the legs and the arms though, they were of the wrong color. That said, I might strip off the paint and send it to someone with better skills to to see what could be done.

    I saw one of these KO figures at the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto this year, along with 1 of the construction vehicle limbs. I decided against getting it. If they had all the combiner vehicle though, I probably would have bought it.

    loving it, I would love to see some weathering done with the paint and make it look more rugged.

    I like the concept. Pity how Hasbro doesn't branch out into different Alt modes for the Primes and Megatron's.

    It's Trac-tor, the long lost gobot. Joking aside, really like this. How big is he compared to other lines?
