    The base for this figure is the MARS Converter version of TF's, but they are made very well. I completely retooled the head and made him a scratch-built gun as well as repainting and adding decals. the final touch was adding a faux interior window to show real dice on the rear view (was a pair of dice I got from a star wars game of some kind) I loved how this guy turned out. It also gave me the chance to try out my new photo tent set-up thanks

    Holy crap that's sweet! VERY pro, and the 50s style hood decal sets it off so much.

    Totally blindsided by this one! Great stuff

    This is a really cool custom man, and this guy could've easily been a cool Fallen figure as well!

    ^ It shows. The flames and head are really nice, and he just screams BD. I'm curious about the size since you have it standing in bot mode next to Alt Hound. Is it more of an Alternators size, or closer to the MP Prime scale?

    Not only does it look awesome as is, but you can repaint it blue and call it Hurricane!

    Oh, man, I love this! Such a nice job! IT has so much character.

    I wasn't aware of the existence of the base figure, but holy cow, I think I need to get one. Or more.

    EDIT: Oh, man, they make a Cobra too? Awesome! I wish they were a tad smaller.... at deluxe scale they would be even better.
