    This guy had been on my bench for a while. I had a hard time finding something suitable for the robot legs. I finally settled on just cutting up and articulating the original figures legs. I wanted him to have a slightly less chubby look, so I stretched him out a bit in bot mode, and gave him some "abs." I also added a completely new modified head (the original looked like a Cabbage Patch Kid!) I added a flexible shaft to the mace tail for poseability, lengthened his dorsal fin, added spines and a few extra rows of teeth to really bring out the beast in his "shark" mode. He is one of the few characters that I consider the bot mode to be his "secondary" mode. They just seemed more apt to do battle in their beast mode. I deliberately left off a 'con symbol, since I consider these guys to be Quintesson lackeys, rather than outright Decepticons. This guy will be going up for auction on Sunday 4/24/11! Thanks for checking him out!

    I will definitely be checking this out on Sunday night. :D 

    Great job! I recognize the tail, spines and upper arms (shark mode) from ROTF Ravage. What are the shark legs from?

    SB, it's really fascinating to see just how much better your already-awesome artwork has become over the last so many customs. Your work really exponentially inspires me.

    Sculpt-bot certainly has the option to cast this if he so wanted. Otherwise (even if joking) I think it's in poor taste to even suggest this.
