    Here's one of the Pretenders I been working on. I always pictured Iguanus as a big monstrous bounty Hunter reptile.
    While walking through TRU I seen the Killer croc 12 inch and knew one day I would use him for this project. Not only is he a reptile, he's was hollow and big. Something I alway wanted to do was get the Robot inside the shell. Although I had some really cool ideas for the robot I needed a small motorcycle type. So I went with the only real choice. Ransack.
    Killer Croc
    Marvel Onslaught
    Godzillas Tail
    and a bunch of kibble.

    I really enjoyed doing this one and the best part is now I'm free for something new.

    Thanks
    And Forarm from Megatron TM2 Dragon
    Thanks
    Yea he looks awesome at the house. Even my kids like it.

    YES

    Thanks bro.
    Thanks you dude!
    Agreed
    Thanks sir
    Yea it was what I wanted to do from the start, although It was a toss up. If Prime Arcee would of fit in the damn back she would of been Iguanus.
    Thanks bro!
