    Not bad. Pretty nice, in fact. Those heavier legs, make the torso look more proportional, and less tubby.

    I'd bend the arms down in vehicle mode, to look like bracing similar to the Op toy. But, that's just me.

    Random thought: Make a wing that could sit on the arms in alt mode, then be attached to the back in bot mode.

    could it be possible to use Inferno┬┤s lower arms? that way it could look more proportional :)

    Just goes to show that the Grand Convoy design isn't really fat, just has tiny limbs...

    It's a neat hodgepodge of parts right now. I think that, with the right color scheme, it'd make an interesting Nemesis Prime/Scourge/Dark Convoy.

    im going to have to rethink the direction of this custom. my primes havent showed up and my sisterinlaw just gave that whole garbage bag full of armada toys.she said they were too old. so ive doubled my collection. and for the doubles and broken ones will fortify my custom materials. cool huh?

    That's the best feeling in the world - the feeling of unbridled custom-building potential in all of those toys. :D
