    So who is it?:D 


    Made his head in about a hour one night, the next day attached it to Bumblebee and mix up a shiny red to make the flames.(wanted to homage the G2 version as well as the original)
    I am unsure if i want to add any red to the head. what do you guys think?

    o yeah i took the pics with a nintendo dsi

    For those who missed it he is hubcap http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Hubcap_(G1).

    HUBCAP! XD

    Hubcap is probably one of my favorite Guys Nobody Cares About. (Well, that's not true - Greg "M "Something Goes Here" Sipher" Sepelak and Trent Troop care about him, and put him in that great Club story a while back.)

    I like the helmet design, but IMHO he really really needs to be smiling, or at least smirking. He's a shady con-man type, you know?

    He has bumblebees face so he in fact is smirking(well more of a slight smile), it is just hard to see it in the pic.
    It was the club story that inspired me to do this(he is getting a friend soon enough).
    I am glad to see that you like it.

    Heh, it's funny that you mention making him a friend... I'm afraid I beat you to it. :D  You could probably sacrifice an actual G1 Jackpot head for this, but I figured it wasn't worth it and just resculpted Prowl's own noggin. (This would also work best with Silverstreak, since he's mostly already black once you strip a lot of his paint.)

    ETA: Also, I love that you pulled off the spoiler. Good show.

    So, who is it exactly. My first thought was Pyro, but i guess that's a bit of a stretch.

    very nce, i want to do a hubcap sometime soon. i like the red flames that homage his g2 design, now if you could have them be chromed red that would have been even more amazing. great job overall though.
