    Dyingwill3rd guessed it right: it's the G1 Throttlebot Wide Load


    1/5/09

    I've been fooling around with ideas for Wide Load's body. I mixed up parts from Heavy Load and Hightower. Still trying to see if I can give the figure more articulation. As it stands, the transformation is pretty mindless (think Cybertron Excellion).

    First glance it screams Predacon, but that's just me being a Predacon whore :redface2: 

    But I know your planning on doing more TF/Gobots so I'm going to have to guess Turbo

    Interesting guesses so far but no cigar.

    I'll give you another hint. It's not a Gobot.

    It's not a Gobot. It's also not a combiner or part of one. Pay attention to the colors and note that it's not a Predacon although that's a pretty good guess. I suppose that only a select few are going to know who it is. But it's definitely G1 and it's from a particular subline.

    Ok, final hint: what G1 subgroup was Goldbug a part of? You'll find your answer there.

    Very cool. What mold are you going to use for this one?

    Heavy Load from RID Landfill seems like my best bet. I considered Energon Demolishor, but was somewhat disappointed with the mold. The dump truck was great, and I loved the missiles, but there was something about the robot that I wasn't too keen on. Heavy Load isn't exactly perfect, either. There are limitations to his arm movement that I'd like to fix. But we'll see. At least I've got a cool looking head sculpt.

    Yeah, as soon as I looked at the head for a while, I put together why it looked so familiar. Look forward to seeing it finished!
