    Because there was very little to work on alt mode wise the bot mode didn't take very long. I took the advice in these forums and stripped the paint from the headlights and took a page from the Reprolabels book and painted a Trailbreaker head. I also thought the cannons needed a lot of work to come a little clost to the ones in the movie so I whipped out my dremel, some gundam parts and a marble and went to work. A great thanksgiving project.

    I like it. The marble idea is genius, and the orange highlights look fabulous.

    Someone needs to mod the back of his head to be the battle mode head.

    That'd kick ass.

    They just pop out from the back. They're held in by a notches on the top and on the side. With a hobby knife i was able to get them out, strip the paint and put em back in.

    Cool. I really love the cannons, though I'm not sure what the orb is for.

    The paint looks fantastic. I love the modded cannons. I don't much like the back of the head face, though.
