    Alright, here's a custom I did a little over a year ago. The basic vehicle shell is G1 Breakdown, but the main figures I used for the robot mode were Aerialbot Air Raid and a Machine Robo combiner KO (the police car, whatever his name is). The figure shown here is a second attempt at building Sideswipe. A first attempt of building him ended up with less than stellar results, mainly from the chest and shoulder area. The second version uses the ball-joint ability of the Machine Robo KO and the ability to hide the robot head in the front end.

    Here be the pics. Enjoy

    Here are the pics of the first version. Not my best work, but the first Pretender Classic I made.

    Breakdown redone as Sideswipe - hell in Masquerade Sideswipe became Breakdown, so in a screwball whilrlverse somewhere why cant BD become SS? I like it! Got a shell for him?

    Sorry, no shells for my figures. Don't have any materials. I call it Pretender Classics as not to get them confused with the current Classics series.

    Nice work. Who else you got in mind for the pretender classics series?

    (The Rodimus Prime was excellent too)

    Thanx for the comments. I also have a few Dinobots done and a combiner I have been working on for the longest time. When the weather warms up, I'll get back to my workshop and finish the combiner.
