    I got the set!!! And, sent the E-Mail!!! I hope he's still doing it!!

    By the way, Redline. Which did you modify the trailer post or Armorhide's rifle hole, to connect the trailer to Armorhide? I want to do this right on the first try, especially since I could only find one trailer. Thanks!

    got my trailer today! I think the gray plastic of the trailer looks fine without painting, just need to get the stickers to replace the cheesy HW ones. I may chop a set of wheels off a spare armorhide and just glue them onto the trailer. since its mainly gonna be a display piece I wont be to concerned about them not rolling.

    Almost finished with mine, still needs some tweakage . Been going at it on my spare time.
    Made a fully customizeable arm from some old Bionicle parts, Have about a thousand more parts so will experiment around some more.
    Put a laser/claw on there at the moment.
    Still need to plant a holster on it for Armorhides gun.
    May also use another balljointed swivel arm and attach it to a quadro Cobra missle launcher for the front, where the ac unit would normally go.

    Love that work, Chaos Muffin! The arm is a great addition.

    Now if only somebody could replace the wheels on the trailer so they match. One of these days I'll pick one up and a spare Armorhide and give it a go.

    the only VIABLE (not saying its physically the only way) way would be to get another armorhide, pop his arms off the elbow balljoints, glue em to the trailerbottom.

    How the heck did I miss this the first time! I'm going to do this as soon as I can find the set. I hope Delta is still doing it (Heck, I'd pay for it if he made it an official set on the website). How much has to be sanded/cut off the hitch for it to sit well on Armorhide? Hmm, I wonder how a few of the stickers from the THS-02 set that's on the site would look inside of the trailer?

    the set has its own internal stickers, so there's no need to fork over the dough to buy another set just for that. I just whittled a little off, tried it, then whittled some more till I got it to fit, and to rotate all the way to both sides. and YES he's still making them. :)

    I want a set!!!!!!! :D 

    I made this trailer a while ago which I never finished, I took an extra armourhide and even made proper back wheels for the trailer to match armourhide

    With that other trailer, the sticker set, and the rear wheels I made for the trailer, no way I can pass this up :)

    bah, forget it, I just bought the stupid trailer, and the wheelbase is WAY too wide for the wheels I made, and they are too close together as well, so the wheels hit each other :(

    Trip out! I actually bought one of these Hotwheels rigs about 3 months ago for my future "Armorhide type" character custom. It's black and orange with the cab of this:

    And the trailer of this:

    [​IMG]

    I planned on making him a police rig and using the HW car as a "Roller" type drone. I repainted one of the Cybertron race team Minicons (the yellow guy with the would-be police lights on top) as a police car, and he fits in the trailer perfectly. Man, I really gotta make time to do this stuff instead of bar hopping...

    Wow man this trailer has gotten around!

    I have a bunch of spare Bionicle parts for making poseable arms if anyone needs a few. They worked out perfect for making a bendy arm .

    Those Lego Exo Force sets also have great pieces for modding. Lots of ball & gear joints to build with



    Hey Wolfguard, do you have a pic of that green trailer opened up?
    It looks like a nice candidate
