    Long story short, i had a spare Hot Wheels monster truck/sports car shell, a Star Wars Commando Droid and a lot of lego joints...

    Quite obviously, the alt. mode is some hybrid monster truck. There's still some alignment issues with some car parts, but overall for a first reshell (with only one shell, should've bought two, damnit :banghead: ) i'm quite happy with it :) . Robot mode is a bit kibble-tastic, admittedly, mainly because of the wheels. He still keeps the blaster from the Commando Droid.

    And yes, those are his feet poking out in front of the Car mode. Driving claws or something, according to Hot Shot. :lol 

    Now for a coat of paint... :ev:

    Pretty sweet looking. To be honest with you....the big wheels don't bother me at all.

    I like it. Looking forward to the fin :thumb
