    On eBay if interested.


    "By Primus sake, why should I subject by superior intellect to work fit for a neanderthal? I mean by all rights I should be leading the salvage operation of left over technology and parts caused by that bloody Decepticon conflict in Bay City, not towing the them to some disposal facility.

    I perhaps Optimus knows best. Without his message beacon sent out after the destruction of the Allspark, I would never have found the rest of the Autobots. Still, if I have to share the same Alt mode with that new recruit Longarm, and that idiot Grimlock for much longer, I may extinguish my own spark."

    Enjoy! :lol

    I really like the Longarm mold..it's white so it takes paint great, really poseable and has a stocky look to him. I'm working on a Grimlock for me now.

    I like the details he did with his, I seen another one before but they didn't do the striped detail on the hook arm which I thought was rather obviously needed...

    I did one myself I just never got around to taking pics... alot of backlogged customs not enough time to take pics.

    Mine's based off The G-1 Toy and the lone image from the PsP game so it really doesn't capture a Movie astethic all that much... needs more work too.

    In altmode, or by adding something to the top of the truck cabin which the hook mechanism could then optionally hang off in robot mode?

    Hmm, a little fiddling with Longarm reveals that the mostly-gun-mode accessory can hang down the robot back by balancing the fist-attachment-posts across the two decking plates behind the robot head. To help with the balance, the jointed section with the lightbars (on Longarm, the black bits of plastic closest to the lightbars) can be rotated about 225 degrees and fiddled with so that the lightbars are above, behind, or nearby the robot head. (They can partially homage G1 Hoist's multi-sensor accessory.)

    The gun then points straight down the robot back and the hook can either be packed up in gun mode or left to dangle down behind the gun barrel.

    About the only problem with this arrangement is that the gun isn't actually pegged to the robot, it's just sitting in place rather precariously. A teeny-tiny bit of modding might help create a more secure connection.

    Really sharp. I love this mold too. Dropkick, Longarm and Landmine are all some of my favorites. Ever.
