    Here's a current WIP that started out quite a few years ago. I was waiting for extra parts for my veritech fighter WIP when I noticed an old custom of mine that never came to fruition. So I took it out and tried to finish it up. Well, it turned out to be trickier than I thought, having to buy a new trailer and legs for ol' Roddy here. Fortunately, I was able to use the old trailer as a dummy model, making drilling and modding easier for the new trailer.
    As for now, I'm just showing the cab. If you can tell what I used for him, you can pretty much guess the rest. The trailer is being painted as we speak.

    I like how you kept the smooth racecar-like front end by making it the roof of the cab. Very clever!

    Wow. Ya dont see to many machine wars customs. I did this into an ultra magnus but hey wadda ya know? Makes a pretty great roddy too. Nice. One tip...cant tell for sure ya may have done this already... if you take the arms off and shave the post that doesnt take the screw you greatly increase the articulation. Its also pretty easy to put in a ball and socket but thats alot more modding.

    Looks great, kind of reminds me of New Rodimus, the unreleased toy from Return of Convoy. All except much cooler.

    I've also had this same idea. In fact, I did this last year.

    Rodimus got redecoed as Thunderclash, so why not return the favor?

    I like it.

    Thanx for the killer comments, everyone. Yeah, I used Machine Wars Prime for the base, but somebody noticed a little something extra. That "something" should make you wonder how the trailer is going to turn out.

    If you haven't guessed, I'm trying to be mysterious here.:D ;)

    Super Rodimus... Can't wait to see that. Are you going to reshape the PM trailer a bit to make it more Roddy-like?
