    Well, moving right along with my Throttlebots project, here we have Wideload about 70% done. As with my other 2 throttlebots, this guy has articulated arms, legs, waist and head. Because there is so much space underneath and no real car body to hide everything like on my other 2 Throttlebots, he is really presenting a challenge to complete, but I have some ideas to finish him off properly. Anyway, lmk what you guys and gals think, thanks for looking and God bless. Here's a link to the other 2 if you wanna see how things are going > http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radic...ebots-1-6-freeway.html?highlight=throttlebots < > http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radic...ebots-2-6-goldbug.html?highlight=throttlebots <

    Ohh neat, I really liked the other two, especially Goldbug ;D

    The robot mode looks great, you just gotta figure out what to do with the back wheel assembly, can't wait to see what you come up with. :D

    Haha! AdOrAbLe! I love it! :D 

    On a side note, I never really stopped to consider how Wide Load's bot mode makes so much use of the, uh... cover on top of his dumptruck bed. Do any dump trucks even have such caps?

    Wasn't Wideload the one who hated getting dirty? Maybe he had it knocked up so he wouldn't look so grimy and covered in crud!!

    Thanks! If you're still watching, you can see what I did tomorrow, I finished Wideload tonight, yeah i'm halfway done.

    Thanks DL, is this guy too leggy for you lol (remember my first attempt at Freeway?)

    Thank you

    Tune in tomorrow for the finished product!


    Thanks Bellyboy. I use a combination of legends and machine wars arm parts when I build these guys up. I also appreciate the offer for Rollbar and Freeway, but I have 2 RB's and Freeway was my first Throttlebot to be done.

    Also wanna extend thanks to all who have visited, I hope you enjoy this ongoing project, yeah i'm halfway done. I finished Wideload tonight, but i'm too tired to take pics, gonna throw them up tomorrow.

    Thanks man, sorry it took so long with this next one, he was a pain in the butt because he is so different from the rest. On another note from me, when you gonna unveil that custom I gave you the Chase head for, hmmmm?

    Yeah, I always found it ironic that a bot who doesn't like getting dirty is a dump truck lol.

    Haha, sorry if I was too harsh on Freeway! I honestly liked him very much even if I had some crits :) 

    And I've got no qualms about this little chap so far!

    They are all brilliantly neat! Goldbug in special!
    Man that's something I'd like to do someday, these guys really deserve some love and you have the heart to execute the job.

    I also agree with Bellyboy: MASTER OF MINIBOTS!
