    strange choice of mold for this character...
    classics mirage mold seems to suit better in my opinion
    sure hurricane was not a f1, but its close enough of this le mans speed car

    Hurricane was an obscure Autobot released in Europe in 1992.

    red alert is very easy to get, 15$ in the dealer room around the corner from the customization class, mirage, not so much

    Hey for any tfconers out there did you paint the red parts on red alert blue or did the mold come pre-blue colored like at botcon?

    :lol  I think the Lambo Twins mold has been used for enough variations that we can consider it the Autobot version of the Classics Seeker mold now. Lamborghinis for everybody!

    That, and obscure characters who do manage to be interesting, like this Hurricane guy, are what should be custom figures. Not things that could be justified as mass-produced club exclusives like G2 Sideswipe, if fan rage is anything to go by.

    Anything that's a different color was painted in class. We were all given retail packaged red alerts at the beginning of the class.

    PRID Wheeljack would have been perfect for that guy. I'm tempted to do one myself.

    Actually, the Red Alert version of the Lambo twins mold is a better match for the robot mode, as seen in this pic:
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...ss-figure-classics-hurricane.html#post8085506

    The entire car hood is on the chest, and while not a perfect match the spoilers end up in the same general area on the knees. It also makes the hood sticker much easier to make and apply, since on the PRID Wheeljack figure the hood is made up of no less than four separate parts that split and tuck away to form the legs.

    Here are my customs for the last 3 years of TFCON with this years "hurricane" on the middle bookended by camshaft and g2 flash. You have to remember that the figures that are used have to be available in large quantities so they can have enough for the students and enough replacements just in case something goes wrong. there are just not enough of molds like RID wheeljack and newer ones to get enough to work with. I had a blast in the class, a real custom class. I didnt feel like a factory worker assembling some product.

    here here Matt.

    i agree 100% people dont seem to realize that the figs need to be easily accessible and cheap like you said OR they are just upset / jealous that their crappy botcon class is just an assembly line that they dont really accually do much of anything where we do.

    its Rob btw if you didnt realize by the name lol.
