    Finally for my alt throttlebots we have Searchlight and Wideload(who happen to be my two favourites)

    SEARCHLIGHT
    Started out as a Jazz, given a repainted swindle head and Reprolabel stickers and some generic racecar decals. Just like my Goldbug, legs are mistransformed to lose height, and the doors attach to the forearms with magnets. he has kind enough to donate his weapon to my a;lt inferno (coming soon!!) so i knocked him up a new one with bits from my bits box (i think the majority of it is a KO Hun Grr weapon). his rally lights were donated from same kit that gave me wheeljacks decals (another on coming soon!!)

    WIDELOAD
    or should that be wiiiiiiiiiiideload. I wanted this one to be as wide, yet as short as possible, hence the lack of leg mod. basically just a repainted prime with the arm/door mod done, but then flipped 180 degrees. I also made him a trailer cover/chest palte out of styrene so he more resembles the original in both modes. I've flipped the bumper round to the back to represent the originals 'backpack' as well

    C+C, as ever, more than welcome.

    Hooray for Wide Load. Now let us celebrate with the adding of chocolate to milk.

    I don't know what I admire more. Your love of obscure robots, your execution of their updated forms, or your variant of the new molds transformations. How/what did you do to make Searchlight's legs vary from Jazz?

    Are you going to do a group shot with all of them now? That would be awesome!

    I second the notion of a group shot and a group shot with all the g1 figs too

    I like the alternate transformations you're using here too

    Is that a toneau cover for his chest? If so, you should photograph that in alt mode.

    I've got 1 group shot for bot and car modes, I'll put them in a new thread as i've already reached my pic limit for each of the three threads. I didn't add the originals but i'm probably heading back to the folks this wekend so i'll try and take some more pics then......I honestly didn't think they'd be that popular.

    Cheers for the props.....I just thought that since I started modding and bashing alts, I've seen the movie toys be released and then made into some sweet stuff, and then the animated line.........I didn't think there was that much interest in Alts anymore. Obviously I was wrong!!
