    Remember Triggerbot Override? I sure as shite didn't. I picked up ROTF's Reverb recently because I liked his scale compared to the rest of my guys. A tad big but hey, bikes can get pretty big. Anyway a little surfing later and I figured he would make a pretty good update to Override. 5 minutes later and a quick little head swap with Revoltech Rod and I was sold. I scavenged around in my weapons box and found two matching guns. That's it. A little mod work to get the guns to fit and paint. I used modelmaster enamels and acrylics and duplicolor automotive paints. The blue isn't a good match but this was all I had around. Just a quickie in between cure times on bigger bashes.
    thanks for lookin' guys.
    and big thanks to spoilsport for driving him around for some of the photos.
    I ....don't ....really ....have a ......a......social life.

    I think he was tough enough to actually wrestle those two guns from a Slag each :lol 

    Thanks for reminding how cool Spoilsport is as well. I love the work you've done on him. :thumb 

    Can haz Backstreet and Dogfight now? :wink:

    Regardless of the blue being different that thing is pretty darn spot on. This is one of my favorite scouts from the movie and you've made him so much better. I have to agree on the scale with bikes in the the TF universe, they never quite fit in. This bike, even though it's bot mode is small, is probably in between alternators or HA scale and normal deluxes but close enough. Movie Arcee is just way too big

    I remember this guy , yours is a worthy update!
    But you know what would rock? a Sidecar which transforms into a weapon of some sort.
    But really good work anyways!

    just wanted to say thanks for the comments fellas. I'm glad some of you remember this guy and some even still own him. I don't have any plans to do the rest of the triggerbots but then again, I never planned on doing this guy. :) 
    cheers guys
