    I picked up an extra Alt. Swerve today. Found my second one in less than a week. I want to kitbash it, but I'm not sure what to kitbash him into? Any advice?

    Why not do a KITTbash pun intended. I plan on it if I ever find one. I actually wanted to use an extra Tracks since his head fits better. Maybe I can if the rumor is true of him being in another wave. Hot Rod might work with that mold.

    Well, I have already kitbashed one. I hope to have a finished gallery up of mine soon. My method of deciding on what characters/projects to pursue involves going to a database such as TFU.info and just looking up characters. It gives me ideas for both existing characters and fan characters (my own obviously) to make customs of. Hope that helps :D

    Lazerbeak. Why not? Ravage is part of the Alt. line after all.

    Great minds think alike man :D 

    BTW, love your work as well. :thumbs2: 

    Also something I do is check up on what the car manufacturers are doing in terms of color schemes and such. It's one thing to decide on a character, but it's another to have a cool character idea and stick 'im in a stupid looking car body. I think Tracks and now Sunstreaker (soon to be here) would both argue that you gotta be drivin' in style!

    my brother races street cars. and i see his magazines. i dont know if they have them but they might have tricked out car models that you could use to pimp out whoever you make him into.

    I already have plans for another tape-bot upgrade into the alt line. Hope to have something to show shortly after the TRU sale hits. Buy 2 Get 1 sale, yeah baby. Alts for kitbashing. :D
