    Just a small modification to my Smokescreen. Right now just proof of concept.

    Working on some different hub designs for the rest of the classics lines along with rubber tires.

    Maybe, didn't want to, but you try finding tiny tires in just the right size...damn near impossible. The above are heavily modded slot car tires/rims. It looks like I may end up molding/casting rims and maybe sourcing the tires...but that's up in the air because it's really hard to find them in any kind of large qtys.

    This actually started because the custom SG Roddy I am working on for ssancho had a defective wheel. Looking to replace it, possibly with rubber ones like this. Then after this test I decided I want to swap all the tires on all my Classic/Universe etc... figures

    LOL, yeah I hear ya man. It's amazing what a small change like this makes.

    Rubber tires. Transformers need rubber tires. Very nice, man.

    If only classics were die cast with rubber tires.

    This.. Every TF needs rubber tires.. I don't care what line it is. Now, if you can do this with the figures from the movie line, you'd have an instant customer for every set you made.
