    My wife asked me to clean up my office area. Everything was going smoothly until I picked up HA Basic Sandstorm and Breacher. I wondered what Breacher's head would look like on Sandstorm's body. A little dremeling, supergluing, and x-acto knifing later, I knew. Then I had to paint him. I wanted him to look a little more "toy"-ish, and not super-detailed, just clean paint apps... something that looks like it could be found on the pegs.

    I'm really happy with how this turned out. I needed a name for him, and Gunrunner stuck with me. Then I decided just to see if there was a previous Gunrunner in TF history. There, of course, is/was. Oh well. I think I'm sticking with the name. Plus, his alt mode is surpisingly similar to the Pretender shell.

    As for a backstory, all I've come up with is that he's a Decepticon who specializes in wreaking havok at night. He's small enough to get into most areas undetected, yet armed enough to cause some serious chaos.

    I hope you guys enjoy him. Comments/criticism are always welcome.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    ...oh, and the office still isn't clean ;)

    This is a repaint I could have bought if it had been in stores. I like how poseable that figure is to begin with. Nice!

    That looks pretty sweet. I've been looking for a good scout class head to use for my spare Sandstorm.

    Thanks! I think the head works better than the stock one, if only because it feels a bit more in proportion with the body. However, it's a bit too big for the piece that covers it up in alt mode. Granted, it may have been a positioning issue or a height issue that I could have planned better for, but in the end, I had to dremel the hell out of that piece for the head to fit.

    Yea, that piece is a pain. There are a lot of great heads that fit, but it's almost always a clearance issue. It seems that the only ones that'll fit are the PCC pinheads.
