    Cut of all the unnecessary parts. Pretty much just modded every point on his body with heavy duty ball joints so he's not such a brick. I'll start on his vehicle mode next. He has two ball joints in his midsection, it's total overkill.

    Something about him makes me think Motormaster with a little more work.

    Loving it, have much trouble removing the tracks from his shoulders? It looks very tidy! From the knees down will fill out nicely if you still have the parts to put back on. The extra articulation in the shoulders and legs is sweet, its such a nice mould, it only needs freeing up. How does he line up in vehicle mode?

    It's probably the purple on the chest. I really like this color scheme, the head especially.

    Cutting the tracks off is pretty easy, you could do it with a steak knife if you're patient and then you just screw on 1" hinges from Walmart. Because his thighs are longer, he doesn't line up right in tank mode, I'll have to mod him to get it flush like I did with my other Armada Megatron.

    I want to give him a katana, but I don't know if it will really work since he's so blocky.

    Anyway, small update, preview of his walking tank mode.

    Hmm, Crumplezone thighs it looks like? Wonder if I still have a spare of him sitting around anywhere.
