    UPDATE POST #15
    UPDATE POST #26
    UPDATE POST #33


    For the past few days destrongerlupus and I have been coming up with ideas for converting the generations tracks/wheeljack mold into three throttlebots.
    So freeway will come with a head and a unique gun.
    Chase with a head, gun and possibly unique feet aka front of the car to look more like a Ferrari testarossa front end.
    searchlight will come with a head, gun and different front feet.

    This is still a work in progress but the freeway head is done. I've got one on the way to do the final testing.

    My other projects are still int he works this is just an in-between-er.

    Looks good, but perhaps the stumpiness of the wheeljack mold's legs would be more fitting for throttle bots than tracks'

    Ooooh, very nice indeed. I was thinking FOC Jazz would make a nice base body for a Searchlight custom, and one of these heads would go very nicely with it I think.

    Can't wait to see the final products!

    Thanks for the kind words guys
    Got my first test head.
    fits in the vehicle nicely. I need to tighten the ball joint a bit, and "define" the features a little better around the mouth. threw some paints on real quick to show off what it looks like so far. should've been a little more patient but this was just for testing.

    cleaned up chase's head and he's ready for test prints

    quick question. I'm working on some guns for these guys and was wondering if you preferred if they stow away in vehicle mode or not? I'm leaning toward stowing away. not enough bots have smaller hand guns. i think this would be a nice change of pace.

    more to come.
    cheers guys.

    Dang it man , now I want to hunt down 3 wheeljacks or tracks ! If I get a vote I say 1 G1 gun(if they came with 1) and a small hand gun that stores away in car mode.
