    Autobot Spike was always my favorite episode when I was a kid. Being "trapped" in a crazy strong robot body would have been more awesome than anything in my opinion. This was really the first true custom I did that wasnt a repaint straight up. Theres a lot of random parts including a scratch built shoulder using the original Hound G-1 shoulder cannon. Dont worry...it was already broken. I try to not sacrifice anything if I can. Most of this was leftovers from other practice builds and scrap I had. I realize the chest isnt the most accurate but some things had to be cheated, Im sorry. Hope you guys enjoy!

    Wow. Weird. Just saw "Autobot Spike" the other night on the Hub and thought about how cool it would be if someone would make one. Awesome! He's great!

    Im really glad you guys liked it. I really thought Id get raked over the chest not mismatching. I built it like a few years ago and just painted it a few weeks ago. Anyhoo. Thanks again for looking....some of you guys I really idolize as far as customs go and its really neat seeing your feedback.

    He's just a big robot monster with powers he doesn't even know he has. He's going to conquer earth and destroy the decepticons, because he now has the chance.
    Great work.

    Thanks. I look back in the "ancient pages" every once in a while and see a lot of customs that are excellent with like 3 views. I think because of the anticipation of certain customizers that others sometimes go unnoticed. Im really glad that people like this one because its my first real build. I had only repainted before this.

    Seriously would make them for people but the parts used were really hodgepodge. Theres Gundam stuff to literal trash plastic in this thing.
