    I almost snapped a pic of that. I'll be sure do one when he's finished.

    Thanks man. This "nice start" is probably the 4th attempt at getting it just right.

    It's mainly designed after the Classics versions transformation but with added steps to create a true G1 animation model appearance.

    Thanks bro!

    Mmmmmmaybe haha. I DO accept commissions ;)  Thanks!

    He should be 7 1/2" tall. He'll come right up to MP Primes ab section.

    Appreciate it mate!

    I say go for it and start on one yourself! I'll be putting up plenty of wip pics so people can follow along. The Beetle parts are from a 1:24th Tamiya kit. And maybe I'll do another for ebay since this one's spoken for.

    Thank you sir!

    haha, thanks Chris!

    It's turning out to be one of mine too. Thanks!

    Are we to assume the legs will be bigger? As of right now, his arms look a little big for him. Otherwise it is lookin great!
