    Hey guys/gals,
    We know we're still feeling the affects of the sudden death of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Then I just got a thought why can someone here make a Transformer custom to honor MJ and also give him the name like Beat It or Moonwalker or something in that nature. I know it sounds corny, but it would be cool to see. I know that I couldn't do it because my skills are not ready. So what you guys think? LMK.

    Why not base him off of his Trasforming Vehicle he had in Moonwalker?

    I'm can't remember, but what car did he transform into in Moonwalker?

    I keep thinking ROTF Sideswipe or Sideways would work as a base.

    OMG! How completely forgot this, I did got a chance to see Michael's Transformer-isque on YouTube and its very impressive. Also I can't believe the response I got. Very cool.

    wasn't there a multiplayer game in the 80s called moonwalker or something? and didn't he transform into a spaceship at the end?
    I remember there being a game in the arcade which you can use a coca-cola "free play" card in....

    Not only was there an arcade game, but there was also a Sega Genesis adaptation by the same name. It's a 2D side-scroller instead of the top-down pseudo-3D of the arcade (I'm forgetting the term for that POV). If you caught a shooting star you'd temporarily transform into the robot, killing machine form. 'Tis a great game.

    I was thinking that an MJ/Stratos Zero Moonwalker would be a sweet custom after the deluge of MJ nostalgia the past few days. If someone can pull it off, that would be amazing.

    I wonder can Classics Hot Rod be a good choice because it kinda looks like that car or Universe 2.0 Sunstreaker/Sideswipe. But its just an idea.

    If you would happen to make it bigger than a deluxe, crossover Captain America's head resembles the robot jackson's head.

    Wasn't there a mod that someone did that kept the car front attached as a backpack?

    Hate to necro a thread - but just had an epiphany...

    DOTM Topspin.

    Chest panels could double for the HIStory tour outfit (or Leave Me Alone video).
    Mechanized car mode could be the gold-armor Mike always wore.
    Pull the hand claws & the body shape isn't that bad either...

    I'm thinkin' chrome for the face & hands - black/drybrushed main body & some gold accents to replicate costume of choice...

    I'd think a custom like this would be better in the Masterpiece size.
