    that's great to hear. Don't feel bad about taking time away from this hobby, you can always come back later on. I stopped when I was about 15 and got back into it when I was about 22. Any thing I missed I managed to get later on.
    Good luck to you :)

    And his head sculpt is also robocop inspired. That might be common knowledge i don't know. There is more than alittle about stakeout to connect him to robocop.

    In what way is his head Robocop inspired? I know Armada Red Alert is (and is thus awesome) but just don't see ol' Murphy in Stakeout.

    Have to agree, Stakeout's more CHiPs than Murphy Law.

    Clearly a robotic-stylised peaked helmet and Aviators!

    Some photos of Carnage, messing around with photoshop a bit to see what I want to settle on, was going to do a review but I am way too busy working incredibly long weeks to be reviewing something that isn't even that interesting! I realised whilst snapping this toy that I only have it because he will be a decent version of Menasor...means to and end and all that!

    'The Run' is such a "fun" filled test of patience when the car robot has a big ol' hoof to balance on.

    I always thought Hyperdrive (of the Decepticon Sports Car Patrol) looked more like Robocop than Stakeout, specifically his chest.

    Hmm, all this talk of Robocop turning into his Police Cruiser... Transformers Movie Crossover line? Stringfellow Hawk to Airwolf, BA Baracas to the A-Team van, Michael Knight to KITT! Street HAwk would change into his own robot though, and have a GI Joe Jesse Mach action figure to ride it!

    This stuff is writing itself. Get on it Hasbro!

    Edit
    @Dobbie, dunno what you're on man, Carnage looks wicked. And your pics aren't half bad either!

    That straight strip of a visor too, without the bottom convex curve, is much more Robocop-style.

    Excellent pics. Some of them make me want one, some of them convince me that would be a bad idea indeed. Well done.

    Just got Tf graphic novel collection from ASDA and I noticed that on the back of the issue 1 poster with the bios, there is a picture of Prowl where there is meant to be a picture on Jazz. :lol

    but as KITT is a sentient car himself, shouldn't Michael be his Master partner? Head, Target or Power, the choice is yours!

    Yeah. I guess you are right when i look. Somehow i managed to robocopify him in a design i am doing, which icidently just got the second test print from shapeways... Maybe it happened subiminally through the alt mode.

    Edit: probably the mere fact his head was round and the visor was enough for me.

    Yeah i can see that is obviously it. :thumb
