    Here's a little project I ventured on about 2 years ago to pay tribute to Tonka, Transformers and John Deere all in one shot. I started with a classic Tonka front-loader and scratch-built everything else to achieve a transformable John Deere version of G-1 Scrapper. I was pleased with the outcome despite the challenge it presented. I sold this figure to a TF fan in Kentucky that was into Transformers and actually owned a John Deere tractor as well. Perfect match.

    Holy Crap they keep getting bigger! Your articulation on this guy is excellent, as well as...pretty much everything else!

    He really does look like a challenge. It seems like a whole new set of kitbashing rules on that scale. Well done!

    I have actually done Tonka prototypes of Hook, Bonecrusher and Longhaul as well....A combinable/transformable Tonka-Devastator is plausible....it's just a matter of time...
