    Initially, RotF Wheelie turned me off as he was so WAY off scale from the other deluxe figures. Heck, fully extended he's taller then Animated Lockdown!

    Being such a coward (Wheelie) and in a weird mood at work I came up with a very unique series of "additions" for him. I do apologize for the low quality, as it was done with my camera. Better images will be taken tomorrow or this weekend with my regular camera.

    The white flag was made from styrofoam drinking cups, as is the drum. The flag pole and drum sticks were made from swizzle sticks. String was used on the drum to make the lines from top to bottom, and so is the support strap around his neck. The eye "patch" is the doorag from G. I. Joe Sigma 6 Heavy Duty. I'll likely make one from styrofoam and such at work next time.

    Wheelie is just a fun figure to make stuff for!

    Thank you all for your positive feedback! I also have some Wall-E thoughts and ideas for him including (now), some books to stand on, some mouse traps, etc. He is such a fun, expressive, character.

    I have also thought about making a 1:32 "garage." Hmmm...

    Be warned folks, the building/customizing bug has hit me hard!

    Tundra, we need you to make sure you're attaching all of your images to your threads, as per Radicons Guidelines and Etiquette :wink: 

    This is really fun and humorous! The work looks good too :)  I like seeing people having fun with their customs :)
