    I am currently working on my 2nd custom kitbash. I am making a Menasor out of the universe line figures like most have. I actually like the setup that frenzyrumble did on his with the shoulders, but not sure how I am going to make the top vehicles attach. I am still trying to figure that out because I don't want to do a carbon copy. I am using 2 universe sideswipes, silverstreak, and dragstrip (fracture pictured for reference only). I am using galaxy force prime as well. I am making a trailer for Motormaster out of a k-mart semi truck. I cut off the back wheels of the trailer and welded on the galaxy force wheels. I am planning on adding an extra axle to dragstrip from the fracture here.

    I replaced the wheels on the sideswipes because the original wheels made the lambo look like it had cheap hubcaps on it. I used the wheels off of rotf deadend and jolt. I think that it makes them look tons better and will define the 2 as different cars as well as me changing out one of the roofs.

    suggestions, advice welcome.

    The Lambos look great. Did you run into any problems during the wheel swap? Did you have to mod the wheels in any way?

    not really, only a little bit from deadend and jolt with removal. I had to trim out the wheel wells and trim down the hub where the wheel sits onto, so it sits flush with the side of the car. I didn't put a pic up but I do have the shoulder pieces completed with the unicron, turbo tank, and additional gfp pieces and ports.

    :lol  I am not using the deadend or hotrod (even though I wanted to but couldn't find one) I like the way you did yours, except the hands. but good job.
    Thanks alot! I am already working on my bruticus but he is going to be a big sonofabitch. I am planning on using voyager size figures for all and leader for onslaught. keep an eye out for him.

    the only thing with that is there isn't alot of room to "tub" it out enough for deep dish wheels. but I would like to see it if you pull it off

    I have done more work to him in the last few days.. I need to finish up the leg connections, feet and mod the head. I am doing a trailer too. I took the wheels off of the prime trailer and put them onto a generic trailer from k'mart. I think it will look good though.
