    Ok...decided to try this since I had some junkers. I used Classics Sunstreaker legs and some Gundam Arms.

    I think it turned out pretty good for a first try. Now I just need to clean it up and paint the dude.

    Those Sunstreaker parts work rather well on this mold. I'm surprised as the size difference is pretty steep.

    Looks good mr Lo-pan, how about the rest?

    looks good. what's the feet made from? I think I used the same feet on mine or a custom in the past, even made a mold of that shape...

    Very cool. The arms work really well.
    I would have never thought to use those upper legs.

    Painted this guy up with some slight modifications. Now I just need to add the detailing. Let me know what you think. The others will be joining soon :) 

    New photos added to the first post. I'm letting him dry out before I add the alt pic.

    not bad at all, really like the way the lambo legs look on this mold. I have an extra sitting in a drawer, so I may have to try this out.

    Did you use his actual body from the G1, or the TRU exclusive?

    Thanks you two. It's hard to tell from the pics, but the clear blue chunk on Suntreakers thighs I tried to make a clear red, but it turned out a dark purple (blue/red make purple...duh). So that worked out :) . It looks pretty cool.

    Biotoakid - It's an original Insecticon...but it was a junker I had laying around.
