    Well im back and after making my Revoltech Perceptor I decided that Perceptor needed a friend. And looking at Hotrods second head with the green visor I thought of one of my favorite G1 characters Beachcomber always loved the G1 episode Golden Lagoon.

    Anyway Beachcomber is made mainly from Revoltech Hotrod, but I also used Revoltech Megatrons shoulders. I also had to sacrifice a G1 beachcomber for the chest, waist, roll cage parts and wheels and spot lights.
    I’m very happy with the way he came out also added his Golden Lagoon, Golden hand.

    Also have to say a big thanks to fellow revoltech customiser Robvega214, who when I showed him a problem I had with the wheels on his shoulders, a day later he replied back with step by step pictures on how to solve the problem, I couldn’t have done it this well without his help!

    Also since i have a few now, also added some pics of the Revoltech War
    Anyway enjoy

    Oh wow, this is just full of awesome. I have nothing further to say, it's just that awesome. Awesome. If he's Revoltech, let's see all kinds of poses, for the pleasure of your fellow forum members!

    Really nice work man! My only crit is that it seems he should be a tad bit shorter. Love the golden lagoon hand though.

    This looks great, I hope you keep cranking these out! The Revoltech line just begs for more TF characters.

    Luv him! You've nailed his character perfectly! :thumbs2:  But I'm intrigued by your Coneheads. In digging up your Seekers/Coneheads thread, My envy of your Revvy collection has gone up ten-fold! :D  Have you thought about using Revlimiter's inspiration to create your own Communications Expert? :wink:

    As for more Revoltech customs, Hotrods head sould work well for Astrotrain so will be starting him soon
    But I think I need a few more autobots so might have to copy robvega214's Prowl, Bluestreak and Smokescreen one day
