    Im not quite sure what to call this guy. Classics Kick-back?

    Anyway after seeing Madein Japan's SG Junkion prototypes and getting my set of SG Junkions, I immediately thought it would be great to have an insecticon head as an option.

    While at NJCC, I was looking at Gen1Fan's prototype exclusive head for the SG Junkions and decided to go find a junker Kick-back. I took apart the kickback and positioned the head on top of Gen1Fan's junkion and it was pure gold. So when I got home I immediately started the modification.

    I harvested the head and wings. I had to remove the post on the neck and drill a small hole. Then trim some space inside the head to make room for the ball joint.

    The wings needed to be sanded down to fit snugly between the shoulder and torso.

    And here are my results.

    And most importantly, it can still transform. This is pure luck and chance. I did not plan this.

    The antennae fold perfectly into grooves between the head and neck.

    The wings position themselves as forks for the front wheel in bike mode.

    Update: I swapped out some parts from Junkheap for the yellow. Also I installed the wing incorrectly on the bike mode. Here it is corrected. It works rather well tucked back next to the seat.

    I added the nipple guns and the yellow groin joints.

    Oh and most importantly, the yellow wheels.

    Here I was trying to get an idea of how it would look with a G1 chest.

    Yeah not much I can do about that, besides putting a sticker on him. As I have told other people with other mods that I do. I am an impatient modder. I hate painting and waiting for glue to dry. If I can do a mod that requires the least amount of work i'm all for it haha.

    You could always call him Kick-start. A play on the Insecticon, and motorcycle aspect of him. Excellent job though, it looks good and it's badass that the wings and head are perfect.

    haha I love it!!! Kick-start is a great name. I am a little torn though as to decide what faction he should be. Classics Decepticon Insecticon? Or SG Junkion with insecticon head?

    Decisions, decisions. But does it really matter? All that matters is that he looks badassed!!
