    This is just a quick mock-up. I haven't bashed anything just yet... but as soon as I got my Crossovers Captain America home, this is one of the first things to occur to me.

    The head is from Crossovers Thor... I used a silver marker to paint his yellow "hair" silver. The red bits are just parts of a dollar toy plastic truck that I cut up quickly to test my theory. To do it properly, you'd probably want to cut out the bottom of Cap's front end and inset a proper red chest/head area.

    The rest is stock... no alterations. Painting wise, this is almost already in final colours! I'd just paint some blue on the rear end of the truck so it's only the rear cap/shins that are red, not the entire legs. Also, I'd probably sand off the star emblem on the front hood.

    There we have it... an ALT-sized Gears! The humvee mode would be a bit off-scale next to other alts, but the robot mode is practically exactly the right size.

    These Marvel crossovers have some decent applications to regular TF characters. Can't wait for more shots.

    Smog,

    Sorry to highjack your thread but I have the same mod in process. But I'm going for a different charcater for this one. Since I allready have done Gears from Wolverine. This will be my Alt/Classics Brawn.

    Thanks guys! Not sure when I'll finalize this mod (so what else is new?), but I'm looking forward to snagging at least one or two more Cap Crossovers... there are some other alternate transformations with that mold I want to explore as well. ;) 

    Quite all right! It's looking great! :) 

    I was thinking the exact same thing... the same basic alternate transformation fits both characters perfectly! I was swayed by the colours to go with Gears... I always take the easiest path!

    Plus, I already was planning to do the Brawn-from-Alt Hound mod... though I admit the Hummer mode certainly suits Brawn well. I tried this same alternate transformation with Crossovers Wolverine too, but it just doesn't look as nice.

    Quiet grumpy! :D 
    (i see what you did there...)

    great idea as ever smog,

    wish this toy was out here yet, still waiting to see Hound, cyclonus and this guy on the shelves.

    I think he'd make a great Roadbuster.

    Well, here in Quebec, I think these Crossovers turned up before the Hound/Cyclonus wave. I actually got my Cap Crossover during a recent trip to NYC. Keep your eyes open... from the availability I've seen, Cap might be shortpacked. I've only ever seen ONE in the wild before, among many War Machines, Carnages and Thors...

    Roadbuster was my first plan for this mold. It certainly has the size... most Crossovers feel "almost" as large as a Voyager, but this Cap mold is BIG. Much meatier than my Classics Optimus to be sure. I'll probably post some concept pics sometime soon for some of my other repaint ideas for this mold... it just has too many possibilities. :)

    I had the exact same idea, but for Brawn. Brawn seems like a better fit IMO.

    Yeah, me too... but as I mentioned above, Cap already comes molded in red and blue! ;) 

    LOL! Yeah, I got that. At first I was "Why is he being a dick?" and then I was all like "Haha! I remember that line!" :)

    hmm, green, silver and orange he'd work well as Brawn (don't know how it'd all look in vehicle mode mind)

    gears looks good, looking like that he shouldn't have nything to complain about (not that that'd stop him :lol )
