    "Dedicated to sheer speed, Lightrider units always find the straightest route to their target. Recklessly willing to help in times of need despite being unarmed, every delivery mission inevitably becomes a ludicrously dangerous race."

    Lightrider is a 45mm tall Robot.
    Transforms into a motorcycle.

    Articulation: Neck, Shoulders, Elbows, Hips, Knees, Ankles.
    Designed for use with 3mm-compatible weapons.​

    Awesome work. Love the late 80's / early 90's coloring.

    Another good one, shame the detail gets lost in some of the grain.

    Thanks! :) 

    White Strong and Flexible holds up really well for joints, but yeah the grain shows up through the silver paint a bit. I'm working on a smoother alternative, hopefully I'll have more news to post on that soon. :)

    He kinda looks like he needs handlebars, I'm assuming with the 4-wheel motorbike alt, he's based on the Dodge Tomahawk?

    Getting a very "Cybertron Ransack" vibe off of him (which, for me, counts as a selling point), particularly with the "roller feet"alternate look.

    I think it's mostly a Tron callback.

    Hadn't seen that model of motorcycle before, neat coincidence. :) 

    So happy that the spiked rear wheels let Lightrider stand up even with the 'roller feet'. Well, stand up just long enough for me to snap a photo of it. ;)

    True, true!!
    Still, this fig would look awesome with some nice deep black plastic and some glossy teal paint. If I ever buy one of these prints then I'm totally TRONning this fig up!!

    To me, it looks a lot like Lazareth LM 847.

    I get Tarantulas vibes along with Cybertron Ransack vibes.
