    Here's an ALT I just came up with using Rollbar and a Cybertron Mudflap's head. I was thinking he looks kinda like Inferno, but not sure what to call him or if someone else thinks he looks like another Transformer I could name him after

    Here's a few updated photos since I'm pretty sure I'm going with Inferno with this one. I might paint it red eventually but here's him with arm cannon and now you can see the black painted door handles

    Here's a Ricochet I took the flames off of and put the Rollbar head on. Names, Suggestions, Any help?

    And finally I have an extra Battle Ravage and don't know what to do with him. I was thinking about putting a Wheeljack head on him cuz I always thought that mold looked like a samurai, maybe an updated version of Nightbird with a little paint to seal the deal

    Well Mudflap's head started off blue with green eyes so that's painted and dremeled to fit. I added black paint to his front grill, took off the chrome bumper/grill thing and painted the door handles black, which can't be seen in the pics

    The next one I used 99% rubbing alcohol to take the flames off the doors and dremeled the head a bit to fit

    The last one the Wheeljack head isn't even on the head post it's just resting there

    The main point of this thread is to see if Rollbar looks enough like Inferno to call him that and even add a few things like his arm cannon and some Fire Department decals and/or accessories. And just to get feedback for the other 2

    I can't help it, I love Alternators and I need to make my own now to keep it going

    you could put the skywarp alternator stickers from reprolabels on the ricochet, and then remove the visor off the face...

    WOW... I never really noticed that the Swindle head mold could also pass for a seeker.

    Does anyone have any links to customs that used that head as a seeker? I'd like to see what it looks like without the visor.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the Swindle head has any eyes behind the visor. AFAIR they're just molded into the clear plastic.

    Yep, no eyes on Rollbar/Swindle.....but a small piece of styrene, with some eyes engraved in it mounted from the back side of the face...and BAM!....eyes....I think Lobo did that before....

    I like that idea Red...:thumb ...Rollbar/Swindles head does look like a seeker.

    And youre correct, that head on Rollbar does look like Inferno...go with it

    As for WJ on B Ravage....I like the idea, but the head looks a little wide...maybe shave the sides off (ears) like I did on my Alt Hammerlock....I've also seen it done to make Insecticons too (Gen Magnus did it, thats where I got the idea from :D ) :thumb

    Thanks for the input guys. I think I'm sticking with Inferno for the first one and I added a pic with his arm cannon too.

    As for the other 2 I think I'll go with Shrapnel for the Ricochet mold, add some purple and possibly some insect like parts. As for the Ravage/WJ one, I think I'll go with Plowking's idea and shave the sides of his head and paint him up a bit. So who should I use for Kickback? I have a KO dark grey Sideswipe on his way so maybe him with a different head, but whose should I use?

    I do agree that the Rollbar head says G1 seeker but I already have both MP Starscreams and an MP Skywarp on his way that and I just stick those guys in with my BT/ALT display

    can't you make the doors swing up and back on the sideswipe mold? that'd work really well for kickback.

    And I'll take that Rollbar visor off your hands if you should go about that idea.

    Definitely not mine. I haven't really made any fan-fic names. Blackjack isn't too bad though
