    Finally got around to taking some pics of this guy.My birthday was back in September and my good buddy spoonman told me that I had a belated b-day present coming.

    Little did I know it would be this!!!!!!!! The funny thing is that during the build process he actually asked for my input on it.We always shoot ideas back and forth and i just figured it was a commissioned piece.Boy what a surprise!!!!!

    He built one a while back for ebay and I fell in love with it so he made this for me.There are some subtle changes between the first one and mine.Mine has a new bot head,more spikes,his shark claws have independent moving fingers.

    Here's a link to the thread of his first one so you can see the differences

    Thanks for looking and thanks again Allen for this awesome custom!!!!!!!

    The more I see this, the more I like it.
    I think this character (not so much the recipe) is moving onto my to-do list.

    Classics Astrotrain, a bit modded.

    *edit* Scratch that, the original was an Astrotrain head. This one looks like an animated figure.

    I want to know where that tail came from.

    Dang, I was going to use a G1 Gnaw for my custom, but I may have to borrow this formula of WFC BB and Ravage parts. Looks excellent.

    The head is a mesh between Astrotrain and the oversized ko PE Reflector with some styrene and putty work. The tail is from something called Magnaman I found at a Walgreens.
