    the last time I posted here somebody suggested that I should try at an actually transforming custom, so I did. This is by far the most challenging custom I have done in my life, it was meant to make me proud of my skills but the only thing that made me feel is happyness to know that I dont have to work on it anymore, lol , even thou it made me feel frustrated sometimes, the result was really awesome (wish I had at least another of the same casting to replace some parts I didnt cut right or at least to have it standing next to it), all the hinges were scratch build carved in acrilic plastic

    introducing the new member of the Hot Bots, Mayor Dale Ivory named after the name of the casting Dairy Delivery, LMKWYT

    Very good! The arms are a bit low, but all customs need compromises. Very nice job with this!

    As a Customizer,

    Transformer collector,

    and Hot Wheels collector I approve this custom! Well done!

    I made one out of the 16 Angels casting, I wonder if I can still find it.

    BRILLIANT!!!!

    At least as good, really better in a lot of ways, than the official "Transformer Hot Wheels style cars" the Spychangers.

    You SHOULD be proud!

    I agree, thats why I put the wheels to go out on extra hinges to disimulate it a little better, If I decide to do another one Ill keep that in mind (there was something that didnt allow me to put them higher but I dont remember right now what it was)

    Beautiful. Your great at this. I'm not surprised you used the big delivery truck though.
    You should try making more. I love all of them. How pose-able is he?

    thanks for all the nice comments, about the questions posted, it has articulations in the knees, elbows, shoulders rotate (but they not go back and front) and the legs opens at least 45 degrees, Ill try to get some pics of poses when I go home tonight but the arms are really limited (Ill try my best for the second transforming one), also could try an ecto 1 and a delorean if I find them (we are still getting 2008 hot wheels) also would like to find some mass produced hinges for them cause making them from a piece of acrilic plastic is really a titanic task (I spent 75 hours doing these), btw here are the first steps of it for you to see
