    Whoa! Which base figure is underneath him? Guessing by the way the roof is designed to collapse on itself - Skids maybe? [​IMG] & 1:24 scale you say - For a Mini, that's tiny...

    I've long wanted to do a classic Mini with all the rally kit (light bar, roof rack, etc.) as Searchlight. This is cool, and I'll be paying attention.

    That looks great! Really first rate! I've been tinkering with a Bumblebee Mini Cooper reshell myself for a while now, but the windshield sits way too low on his legs in bot mode. I'm curious to see more. This does look like a slightly different model of cooper than mine though. That might explain the proportional differences.
