    Thanks to JAnGoThaKing's inspiration, here is my latest wrecker: Guzzle, complete with "The Judge".

    Made, like so many others, out of a hailstorm and a modified bumblebee head.
    The tank turret is from an old megatron KO from my childhood, may it rest in pieces.

    I went for a more understated, simplistic look for Guzzle with the tamiya acrylics, not worrying too much about the odd imperfection or smudge, because, hey, it's Guzzle.

    I think that's the exclusive Roadbuster, isn't it?

    Great job, CK - love the new turret. :)

    Somehow the arms are looking a bit more proportional than on Hailstorm. did you do anything to them or am I just imagining things?

    Actually its just defense hot shot, with arms from the energon combiner helicopter, a waist swivel to make the legs look nicer and some new wheels from a toy monster truck. Springer will have his own thread when i figure out how the hell to make him transform properly. He works now...nearly.


    It *might* be because Guzzle's new head is much larger than Hailstorms, or the colourscheme, because no, I havent touched them.


    Thanks! :thumb  now i just need to make Topspin and Twintwist before Kup and Perceptor come out and I'll be set.

    Any hints on how you'll approach them, there have been a few great solutions to them presented here on the boards, or trying something new? They're my favorite members of the team, they always looked the coolest to me in the old Marvel comics. Guzzle used to be cool in the old comics too, he even fought beside the Wreckers at one point in those too. Love the Wreckers! Again great job on the team so far.

    Actually, these guys by TCracker are looking amazing, so I'm hoping something along those lines.

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/352747-wip-generations-topspin-twintwist.html

    They look brilliant.

    However, not having an original or KO of either of these guys, they might end up my first pseudo scratch-build, or at least be made of parts of others.
