    Guzzle IDW/LSOTW - W.I.P. and a special guest on pg.3

    'Sup dudes!

    I'ts been a while since I finished LSOTW Impactor and now it's time to try making something new.

    Since I put my eyes on DOTM Thunderhead figure I felt that I could make something quite similar to IDW/LSOTW Guzzle and

    then I bought this mint mould and he's already ready for the surgery.

    Basically IDW's altmode is some sort of four-legged-beetle-tank like thing and I think I can emulate something like that

    from Thunderhead's mould.

    Well, Let's see what pops up in the end. :) 

    That's my start:
    ______________________________________________________________

    Updating 06/13/11 - Showders and crotch. And still a lot to be done...

    ______________________________________________________________


    The last update: 06/18/11

    The head.
    I've found a good piece to make his head: RID Wedge. Fits perfectly and needs no adjustments.
    Just got some styrene work done and tomorrow I will apply some putty and sanding all over before painting.

    The whole body is already done and the altmode looks freaking killer and I'll be jumping to the next and last step that I hate to the most: Painting.

    Damn I wish they have had first released the green version of this mould instead.

    I'll probably keep the rub spots (joints) orange as is for I don't wanna ruin it all during the transformations. All the rest shall be painted accordingly.

    I'm not sure if his face is black or deep blue, hints anyone???

    06/30/11 - Waiting for my paints to get the work done.

    Hi folks, this is not exactely an update this time, but I was finishing up with this guy and right in the middle of the whole process I started another custom which is in fact pretty much done, but still missing one importante part which I don't have...Damn!
    Those who recognize the dark silhouette beside Guzzle's silhouete will recognize him, but I'll post him in a new thread once I have this important missing part. (Actually everyone will be able recognize it...duh...lol)

    Some who recognize him might say "What? This is a rare figure! Why in the hell did you do that?", but some will bring me some redemption by understanding that it is all about getting my LSOTW collection complete. Actually his final customized form is much superior than the bricky original G1 shape.

    Well, there it goes, that's all I have for now untill I receive my new paints to finish up Guzzle.

    I hope you can do something with this mold. I was sorely disappointed with this toy, I brought it back. I think there might be too many things wrong with it for you to be able to do a good job of it, but I wish you all the luck.

    That mould is Perfect for Guzzle. I might have to do something with Thunderhead to Guzzle myself.

    its a great choice for guzzles vehicle mode. but that seems about it.
    the arms look too long and make it look a little weird. but if you use some putty or styrene, im sure you can bulk him up and make him fit with your other wreckers

    iv been working on a guzzle myself. but mine uses the hulk mold. way big for guzzle but i like it

    That is PERFECT. I always thought his alt. mode was just a blocky tank (I only have the LSoTW TPB, which only includes profiles for Overlord and Snare, so I have no clue what the others alt. modes look like really:lol ), but now that I see him compared with Thunderhead...wow. And I thought cyberverse Guzzle looked close enough!

    Really awesome job so far. I don't think I've ever gotten such good results from bending styrene

    Oh sweet! This is an awesome idea! I can't believe I didn't see the resemblance before myself. Great work so far. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this thread.

    Really nice concept, the work looks good so far! I might have to try this since he would scale nicely with the Whirl I just did! I'll be keeping an eye out for updates!

    Though the resemblance is not exactly a deadringer, I think this mould is something to think about. Thanks.

    Dude, I can't get you this pic right now, but I assure you that he is pretty much scout class sized, next update I'll try to take some group shots. Thanks.

    Thanks, I'm trying to make it as accurate as I can with the parts and tools available. Keep tuned bro!

    Don't you forget that the Guzzle HA DOTM figure will be released soon and also the Igear version in the future.
    I'm just very stubborn, that's why I'm making this one. LOL

    Thanks man I will not disapoint you.

    I agree, though he's a versatile toy he's quite a lot limited on arms articulation and also chest and head are just horrible.
    It is a good toy to customize though. I don't collect movieverse toys, I just picked this one up for my bashing delusions. lol

    Good luck man, hope my version brings you some light.

    Agreed abou the long arms, take a look on my today update. Still working on arms though and maybe I change 'em.
    Hulk's mould can be used for a plenty of customs, unlimited ideas man, not my kind of stuff though. Good luck bashing it!

    It's a shame they didn't release the profile of every character of the mini series. That would be just awesome. Thanks for your comments. More to come soon.

    Actually I've mistaken about the plastic material I'm using that ain't no styrene at all. I'm using PVC and it is very bendable. Thanks mate.

    Thanks, I hope it turns out just the way I'm thinking it.

    Well I hope. Thanks bro.

    Thanks, be tuned bro.

    Sorry man, I'm a mindfreak by nature. lol
    I'm glad we shared the same visions, thanks!

    Thanks, more to come soon.

    Cheers bro, hope finishing it up soon.

    Thanks! Your Whirl is scout sized too right? If yes, they have the same size.
    If you don't mind about IDW crazy scale patterns it's ok. In IDW universe Whril is sort of a bulky Voyager sized guy. For lack of good better options I used a K.O. Energon Sprung mould to get my Whirl done, and It looks pretty good.

    Updates: 06/14/11 - Showders and crotch...and hell... a lot yet to be done.

    I like. :thumb 

    Btw, are you going to give him a longer cannon? It's just not IDW Guzzle without it. :D
