    Long time lurker, first time poster-
    The whole idea for this thing came from looking at the Scrapmetal/Ramble toy and trying to turn it around into a transformoc (for those of you who don't know MOC stands for My own creation, a term used with lego and or bionicle customs, transformocs are mocs that have a robot and a vehicle or beast mode). I tried to maintain as much of the original transformation scheme as possible but nothing ever comes out perfect, in the end I ended up reversing the transformation scheme almost. The energon spear thing came from his key gimmick (which i didnt work in) Which launches out an energy knife from under the gun, and as I've seen from the 'Lets See Some Cool Stuff' thread a feature that can be worked out afterall. Since I didn't have that many red parts I decided to make him in one of his japanese color schemes, which is really close to the metru blue pieces in the bionicle line.

    His gun can also be handheld, I think this is the first time I've used so many of the joint balls.
