    An older project from my “lurker” days before I joined the forums.

    I thought the VW Bug would make a neat little Insecticon (Bombshell in particular). So using 3 of the Impossible Toys Minibots (one of each type of mold for some diversity), some spare G1 parts, and some creativity & paint, I did these.

    Originally the wing/horn parts folded under the cars, but there was little clearance and the wheels would no longer touch the ground, so now they can just come off (parts-forming! *gasp!* ;)  )

    Awesome concept! Kind of reminds me of the SG "See-Cars." Could we get a look at them without the added parts put on too?

    With a few modifications, I can see the alt modes looking like "evil Mad Max-esque purple chibi cars of doom."

    Love it! We need more creative customs like this, not more “cartoon cell shaded” or “battle damage” repaints.

    Nice. Now I want to see some other mini-bot molds customized as Chop Shop, Ransack, Venom, and Barrage.

    I really like the Impossible Toys minicar mould, and this is a really nice twist on those! Good job.
