    This is another commission that I'm doing by request of Kelvinchang- MP Wreck-Gar. The base figure is once again a knock off MP Prime. The wheels are from a set called "Fly Wheels". They're individual wheels that shoot off of a rip chord handle thing.
    The hands extend on the same mechanisms that that are already in there. I just added extensions to the wrists so that what was the pulled in position is now the normal hand position and it pushes out to one hand length longer. The fact that it's a KO made it a lot easier to take apart and not tear it all up. The real ones have a lot more glue in there.

    The wheel will fit a little tighter to his back when I get it all worked out.

    Some parts are mocked up in card stock. Testing out parts in card stock has saved me a lot of time and money, especially with bigger projects like this. Drawings and imagination can only tell you so much, and going straight in can be very wasteful.
    This is the first thing I did to flesh out my ideas.

    Before I worked out the extending hands, I was hung up on the idea of flip-down mounts for the wheel.
    This is very much in progress, so all crits and comments are welcome.
    Thanks for looking!

    You can make an MP Cy-Kill this way come to think of it.

    An MP Cy-Kill based on this design would own just about any Megatron you could name. (Payback for the gladiator match from way back!)

    I can't wait to see how you make the Prime parts look "not Prime" :) 

    This will be great once it's finished! Keep up the good work, man :thumb

    :lol  It is pretty funny that the in-progress colours pretty much make him a perfect MP Cy-Kill.

    Awesome. I love the fat wheels.

    Man, I actually clicked on this thread thinking that it was a MP Cy-Kill lol I totally didn't register that it was Wrek-Gar until I read the replies!

    It's looking quite good though, either way lol
