    UPDATE 8-31-11: Put some finished pics up on page four.

    I had hoped to be done by now but there have been so many interruptions I figured I would just post him as a work in progress. He is really close to being finished. Just a few pieces here and there and a lot more paint.

    He's so big, getting decent photos of him in my small work area is a challenge. I'll have better pics when he's done.

    You'll notice a lot of the cut plastic edges on him are rough, I left it like that because I intend of having him appear battle damaged like in the movie.

    I used pieces from these so far:
    ROTF Leader Prime
    ROTF Leader Jetfire
    ROTF Voyager Prime
    ROTF Voyager Megatron
    ROTF Deluxe Breakaway
    ROTF Deluxe Autobot Camshaft
    McFarlane Toys Matrix APU
    Star Wars Episode I Anakins Pod Racer
    Gundam hands
    an aluminum "No Trespassing" sign

    UNBELIEVABLE!!!!

    This is what kitbashing is all about - using parts from various sources to use in unexpected ways to make something unique.

    This is beautiful as a work in progress - can't wait for the finished product...

    Wow! Definately one of the best; it comes creepily close to both the concept art and the actual movie CGI model. Outstanding!

    I think this is the best one yet (and there have been some AWESOME ones so far). I like it because it's using other TF parts. I recognize the TF parts except for Breakaway and Camshaft. I don't see where they are.

    i could be wrong but by the looks of it, it looks like its permanent and cant come off.. still looks awesome tho.. im trying to do one that looks cool but can also come off separately.. very tricky tho doing the legs =\

    Looks good, but imo, the legs are little to long. I like everything else though.

    Thanks everyone for checking this out. I worked on him yesterday, mostly more paint, trying to get a flat black base coat over everything that needs to be painted. I am brush painting this and getting into all the deep areas is quite a task.

    The legs and feet need to be bulked up a bit more, I have to add a couple pieces to his back, a little more work on the turbine/stabilizer area, and then the head.

    He of course, is not transformable anymore.

    Parts from Camshaft were used to connect the stabilizers to the engines.

    Parts from Breakaway were used on the upper arms, inner calves, and outer chest.

    I work on him as much as I can whenever I can so I hope to have it finished soon.
