    Well a few months back I decided to make a Wheeljack out of a Sunstreaker mold and it worked out well. I was pleased with the results, but it did leave me with a headless Cybertron Downshift. After looking at the car mode it struck me what to do with it...make the GENERAL LEE!!!

    I know it is not a "true" General Lee, but suspend your disbeleife and take a look! And if you think about it, it explains how the Dukes could do all those jumps and never destroy the General!!

    Edit: Bot mode pics added!

    Awesome! I grew up watching that and this captures it pretty nicely. Sure, it may not be the exact car the General Lee was, but this looks pretty darn close. Any plans for a bot mode or is this alt only? Nice work, man!

    I enjoyed that show too. but if you analyze the lyrics to the theme song. it is a celebration of being a white supremest. read the lyrics carefully. They talk about the "good ol' boys" and how they dont like authority. They straighten out the curves and flatten out the hills. Which is a metaphor for refusing the change. What is this change? modernization and acceptance of others.

    NOOOOOO!

    I've been meaning to do this for a year now but never got to it.

    I knew that I would probably get beat to it, but now I'm perfectly fine with it. You did a really nice job with it, and pretty much the same stuff that I would have done. Only
    critique is with the black paint on the windows, but you probably know about that.

    dont' worry, this isn't the first one we've seen. Wreckgar made one years ago, for example.




    BTW- no political discussion, folks.

    Neat,


    I always thought a line of vehicle/driver pairings would make a cool line of transformers.. certainly cooler than the Marvel and star Wars stuff anyway..

    Double Target Master General Lee w/ Bo and Luke
    Double Target Master Airwolf w/ Hawke and Santini
    Double Target Master Kenworth w/ B.J And the Bear
    Headmaster Team Van w/ Mr. T
    Headmaster K.I.T.T. W/ Micheal
    Headmaster Ferrari W/ Magnum
    Headmaster Jeep w/ Macgyver
    Headmaster Trans Am w/ The Bandit


    Would be awesome..

    I've wanted to do this ever since I first saw this mold (one of my favorites, btw) and you did a great job! Someday, when I get skills I'll do one too.
