    Next up we have Goldbug and Rollbar....

    GOLDBUG (or should that be Goldsub??)
    Started out as a Silverstreak, painted gold and a jazz head added. added a faceplate with styrene. Legs are mistransformed so he stands a little shorter and I have him a custom rear window so that the legs closer resemble the originals (It seems like the kind of thing the owner of a shining gold subaru would do!!!) I wanted to make up for his lack of height by boosting his armaments, so I made a grenade launcher from a KO strafe arm and some KO blitzwing missiles. It slots inside the rifle perfectly. I also gave him an alt grimlock sword for close combat. The doors now attach to the forearms with magnets (the magnets from the molds steering assembly are perfect for this!)

    ROLLBAR
    I opted against using the official Rollbar release as a base as I thought the Scion mold already had the tinted windows and backpack of the original. nothing too special, just a repaint and head swap. Alt rumbles head was repainted and a 'moustache' carved on with a craft knife, to represent the original. the inclusion of a jeep mold spare tyre on the back gives him a choice of pistols as well.

    I like em. However, quick question...what made you decide to use Skids as Rollbar 2.0 instead of Alternators Rollbar? Im lovin the door-mod for Goldbug, tho.

    as stated in the text of my post, I just thought it referenced the original more than the official release - not the alt mode, obviously!!, but the robot mode. For all my throttlebot customs i wanted either the legs to be the front of the car (Chase, freway, and to a lesser extent Goldbug and Searchlight) or have the trademark throttlebot backpack (Chase, Freeway, rollbar and wideload here). thanks for the interest!

    Not too fond of the head on Goldbug, but you hit a home run with the rest. :thumb

    Looking good. Maybe you'll finish yours before I finish mine.
    Edit: Nevermind, I see you already have finished yours. Wow, I really need to get back to work.
