    Although I had planned a while back on designing an upgrade kit for the Protector that would give him a closer g1 look, I had to back burner it because of my commission work. This however was requested by Rodimeister0088 as a stand alone project and now that I see it, I think I will be finishing the kit in the near future. Here is just a teaser so far. Can't you just hear him saying "This is the end of the road....."? ;)

    as i said on your facebook dude, love this piece, might have to pick one up for my rodimus as it seriously looks good, it stil retains the fansproject vibe but gives us g1 rodimus in the process a delicate balance that you have managed to hit the nail on the head with, as always dude keep up the amazing work, o i might be taking some photos later when my camera is charged up, ill flick you a copy of my rack n ruin piece im working on i know you asked ages ago but only just getting to it.

    Now this looks great. It accentuates the character and allows the original upgrade kit to remain valid. This blows Dr. Wu out of the water. As said before it blends all that is good about the fansproject kit with a classics look.

    The only thing keeping me back on this is the rough surface. Will that be in the final product or will it get smoothed out?

    Such a VAST improvement! It actually looks like him now! Put me down for one (he said semi-metaphorically, since this isn't a sales-thread)

    let's see how long it takes for Dr. Wu to rip this one off (because it's really nice work)
