    I present the ultimate Deluxe BB, fully transformable, runs of pure energon for 3 hours, 8 Leds, 6 mods and can plug into a base for unlimited energy.

    Thanks go to Savio Prime for his great mods and the rest of you guys for insipiring me to do this. This BB has been sold to a friend so will make another for myself and then start work on next custom.

    Thanks for the great comments, I will take some pics tonight of the wiring before he moves.

    For the energon power source I'm using a 3V Lithium battery, I tested a few and some would drain in 10 min :0, but finally settled on the Lithium. I had to build a custom rig to house it and another to house the watch batteries in car mode.

    Also wanted to say thanks to Hakka for helping me source the LEDs ;)

    I did all the electrics myself, I will state the obvious and say that the smaller you go the harder it is. Having done a few custom BBs this one stands out as the best so far as its scale compared leader class prime is is almost spot on.

    It did take maybe 20+ hours to work out the wiring, resistors, power source etc. I had to invest in new soldering gear to get more precision.

    That's superb. I wish I had one.

    Now, when someone does one with shoulder cannons too, that'll be a spectacle.
    Till then, I'll just look at this awesomeness.

    Can you really plug it in and charge the batteries? Wicked cool custom!

    When connected to the base it runs off 3*AA batteries. The Lithium batt doesn't recharge so after 3 hours the fun is over, until a new energy source is connected and the fun starts over.

    The cheap batts will last around 80% of the brand names which is sweat cus they cost 4 times less in Aus.
