    I'm a big G1 fan, but I really liked Barricade from the Transformer movie. So I decided to make my own G1 version of him. I used a G1 Stepper, a G1 Jazz, and the lights from a G1 Prowl. The labels are a mix of G1 Jazz and Police Jazz labels from Reprolabels and some waterslide transfers that I picked up off from Ebay a while back.

    I need to finish the missile and missile launcher yet, but other than that he is complete.

    thats a neat idea, not many people use the g1's because of thier lack of articulation.

    Thanks for everyone's comments. :) 

    I know what you mean, but G1 will always be my favorite era of Transformers. I really like seeing the rare G1 customs that do show up on the board.

    Cool idea! I'd love to see him with a new face, and maybe some claws.

    I'd like a different head for him, maybe something closer to the movie toy, I'm just not that good of a sculptor.

    Like it.

    There's something entertaining in the idea of making G1-toy customs of the Movie guys.
