    I've built these 2 Transformers from discarded junk plastics and broken kid's toys. Don't mind the appearance since they are both WIP. Between work and my kids I haven't had the time to finish up. The one on the left has been made from broken RC car parts, broken electric razor pieces, antiperspirant tube, old plastic analogue tv antenna parts, finger light, pill boxes, parts from a few pens and plastic spray can caps just to name a few. The second robot is a more recent project made from a cheap KO transformer, a few heavy duty plastic dental floss containers, bionicle feet, rubber stamp parts, outlet adapter, telephone line coupler and a few smashed up pieces from my kid's robo action figures.

    Transformer on the left alt modes into a cybertronian jet and still needs landing gears. Transformer on the right will hopefully be a triple changer and Alt mode into a combat station and also a combat vehicle.

    Currently they are 90% complete and 60% complete

    Thanks to all you guys out there inspiring me with your awesome skills. I don't have that type of skill level but just thought It'd be cool to turn garbage into Transformers.

    That's awesome! I use a couple of plastic containers, broken plastic rulers, and bottle caps in some of my projects as well! :thumb

    I LOVE these! Nothing I like better than a good scratch-build! Believe it or not, your prject is actually VERY ambitious, and already they both look GREAT!

    They actually both remind me a lot of the Diaclone-toys of the era *just* before the "pre-Transformer" figures.

    Looking forward to seeing these done!
