    Back again with another B List TF this time with yet another Pretender Iguanus!

    Iguanus was made from a Maisto Transforming bike. I altered the bike to have a real head attached that resembled the original figures head. He was painted Warlock and Lich purple. One of the cool features of the bike is that it actually left a tail on him in the bot mode and the helmet on his head looks like a lizard thus keep this reptile aspect to him.

    Another thing that I liked about this mold is that it also looks similar to the old Robotech transforming bike armor. As such since I had some Robotech decals remaining I added them making this figure a combination of 3 universes (Robotech, G1 Transformers, and Universe styling).

    You've really been hitting some major league home runs with Pretenders here lately. I hope you have some plans to their Pretender shells as well, since many of the Pretenders are more recognized by their shells (Bludgeon, Thunderwing, Bomb-burst, etc.). Anyways, you've done some top notch stuff, as always :thumb

    That is really well done. Where do you find the base figure? I can't seem to find any in stock when following Masito's links.

    Very slick! I had to do some searching to figure out what this was made from. i've never heard of that line/ company. They're pretty neat, aside from the heads. Nice solution making the front of the bike into a shield. How about a big blade coming out of it?
