    I had to search, to see if I posted this before. I'm pretty sure I didn't.

    This was going to be part of a much larger project, along side some other great customizers. Sadly, it never saw the light of day.
    He was finished back in 2011 & I had a ton of fun just messing around with the build.

    He was going to have a sidekick named "Steve", much in line with Sideswipes "pet" Bob.
    Alas, I never did finish him.

    Lets' see if you guys can figure out all the bots used.

    Anyways, less text more pics. Enjoy.

    I see a dark mount chest, drift thighs and Im thinking some form of movie brawl lower arms.

    Looks like some movie ravage parts and and bit of animated black arachnia for some outer details. Gundam head?

    If any of thats rights youve done a wonderful job bringing all that together to make it look cohesive, and pretty darn good at the same time. Would like to see who he was going to be rolling with.

    That's pretty awesome. Are there any photos of the Commander's insect mode? What you had going on with his pet looked pretty cool too.

    Full shopping list is

    Generations Straxus/Skullgrin and Animated Blackarachnia for the chest
    DOTM Crackcase for the pincers on the chest and left arm weapon
    TM Tarantulas for the insect legs
    WFC Soundwave for the shoulders
    ROTF Skids for the arms
    ROTF Soundwave for the waist and lower legs
    Generations Blurr/Drift for the thighs + small portion after the knee till ya hit Soundwave's parts
    1/100 No Grade Gundam Astray Mirage Frame 2nd Issue for the head

    No, there is no insect mode. that's not the way the "swarm" works
