    I was stupid enough to go back out into the yard to try and get another pic of that crazy little wasp I saw earlier, but something much more terrible came flying at me!
    The enormous mosquito attacked me! I snapped a couple of pics then lost it, only to find it again when I felt the sting of it sucking the blood from my left fu@king arm!!
    I managed to get it off of me and got another shot of it on the grill before it transformed to a little robot too.
    I decided to try reasoning with the little bug-ger, and he came into my workshop to let me get a couple of pics of him in his bot form. Pretty cool, but I still had to squash the crap out of him afterward.

    Was this just a repaint or did you mod the figure, because it looks way better than I remember the out of package figure being.

    Glad you asked. I cut off his forearms and hands and replaced them with Animated Rodimus wrists and hands. Transquito's robot hands originally could be clearly seen on the sides of the bug. That was my main gripe with the figure. otherwise, I always loved this bug-bot.
    Now he had ball joint wrist articulation and the hands hide for beast mode.

    So few people do Beast Wars customs so it's always great to see a new one but when they look this damn good it's a serious treat.
    Beatiful work dude.

    I love this sucker. (See what I did there) The paintwork is extremely well done and enhances the figure ten-fold. I look at it and figure "Off" just isn't gonna keep a swarm of these away. Now a shotgun that fires grenades might do the trick.

    Haha, yeah I may need a new means of extermination. Raid only gets them high. They beg for that shit now.

    Jetstorm will be the last realistic buggy.

    Beast Wars is the line, but they don't look like this out of the package (or in it...). Every one of them was modded at least a little and totally repainted.

    The one with the most mods will be the Jetstorm I'm working on now.
