    My Road Handler custom. This was reworked out of my Sunstreaker i made years ago before hasbro made on for use. Seamed weird to have two for the same character. Plus never thought the red windows were right for steaker.

    So I got inspired to do a head swap when I took Sunnys head for my Motor Master. So some updated paint(most of the red and orange was added and some race team decals.

    Enjoy and share your thoughts

    Thanks

    I think what I like the most here, is that in bot mode, he's mostly red, yet in car mode, he's mostly yellow....I know, sounds silly, but that's alluring to me here for some reason.

    And again, the decal work is amazing.

    I based how he looks on his little mcrobot car. Granted he was a lambo. But he was a yellow car with mostly red in bot mode. Only made sense to me to do the same. Plus no need to repaint the outside. Also glad your likin him.

    One of the things I really like about some Transformer designs is that they have exactly what pk's said above: one mode looks one way, and after transformed, it's a total surprise.

    I think it makes great sense, and you certainly did the character justice :thumb

    That is one of the cooler aspects of this mold and alot of the Alts. Since the bot mode is really contained away in Alt mode. You can hide a color change really well.




    Thanks Super! I messed around with his bot mode some after I took the pictures. I did somethin different with how the doors are positioned. They are out and up from the shoulder and look a little like wings in away. i will have to add a pic of this look.
