    alright this is my first custom and ya so just tell me what you think oh and i love when people do this so a bio


    the young hot rod always feels the need to prove himself even though he excels at every mission be it spying on decepticons or kicking their skid plates he has a very close bond with his two best friends bumblebee and bulkhead in team prime and with his mentor wheeljack like bumblebee he looks up to optimus prime as a father figure and a hero ratchet, arcee, and optimus all see potential in the young bot

    Car mode looks outstanding, really well done. I don't really dig his alt mode though. I don't know what it is, probably his head. Looks like it needs some shading maybe.

    Looks solid! I was looking to do the same thing and somehow incorporate the ability to link to a trailer to make rodimus prime.

    Nice work!

    Thanks and the way his spoiler attaches is just a 5mm hole so I might try a rodimus upgrade

    yeah surprisingly (if I can find the G1 Trailer for a reasonable price) it looks like if you cut the wheels out from under the trailer it'd fit over wheeljack (not sure but it looks like it) and then you'd just need to modify back in a back wheel.

    That's my current plan then hit them both with paint and such.

    What did you use for the spoiler?

    I like this quite a bit. I'm always worried that a Rodimus from Wheeljack would look too similar to my custom Burnout (see sig) but this looks great and different. I love the hood of car mode. I'm not a fan of the head for Rodimus though. Perhaps a Ratchet head would work better.

    For mine I'm actually planning 2 heads (one younger and one older). I was actually thinking of using a Bee head for "hotrod" (perhaps modified a bit) which will help the bee plague of my area, and something else for rodimus.

    Ratchet isn't a bad idea!

    Looks great! I really like the alt mode. I might've left the windshield blue, though.
