    Ok...so I thought that my recent Devastator project was my last until I moved...then I bought a DOTM HA Skids at Target on clearance...I did not care for the Skids and Mudflap characters at all, and cared even less for the toys, so this is my first time owning the HA mold for either.
    I was instantly enthralled with Skids chunky, squat design, and I thought it could make a more fun/interesting bot.
    Allow me to introduce Hunch...

    Hunch claims no allegiance to the Autobots or Decepticons. He merely hangs out on my desk, and occassionally assists me with other Radicon projects.
    Hunch is slow, and quiet...he's stronger than he knows, and probably not as smart as he should be.

    Obviously what we have here is HA Skids...I changed out his head with Bot Shot Barricade. If you've seen Bot Shot Barricade's noggin, then you'll know that it's really only half of a head...so I had to build up the back of the head with styrene and ensure that it could be fitted with a ball joint.
    The forearms come from some goofy looking 6 inch action figure that looked like it was supposed to be some sort of Knight. I wish I could tell you more, but it came in a box of other toys from a garage sale.
    The hands belong to leader class ROTF Jetfire.
    Hand painted with acrylics.
    I've changed nothing to his alt mode except for the clear yellow on the headlights...I don't know if he will transform with the new arms, and frankly I don't care since who wants to see that derpy lookin car-van thingy, when they could be looking at Hunch's akward bot mode.
    When people ask me if he Transforms, I say "I believe so, but he hasn't shown me his alternate mode yet..." LOL

    Thank you for looking!

    Nice work, you really turned a boring figure into something unique. The bot shots head looks good on him as well.

    Great job, as usual. Definitely lots of points for creativity here -- a new and unique character, along with a nice use of a very characterful head. :thumb  Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner on the headlights, but I think you made the right choice!!!!

    Dig it. Like the exact-O as a weapon. Nice fit and just looks cool.

    The bot shots head is a nice move. I dig the look of them and I'm glad to see them being used. And so well used.

    Can't gush enuff.

    At first glance this isn't much, but after a little getting used to, really pretty cool. But if he aint that smart, why did you let him hold the X-acto? lmao

    He has kind of an Insecticon feel. Looks great.

    Hey thanks for the kind words!

    Ha yeah man! He was alot of fun to work on...the headlights sealed the deal for me LOL!

    LOL thanks for the compliments! I told him not to pick up the x-acto, but he is a terrible listener!

    I thought so too. Thank you!

    Thanks! :thumbs2:
