    Well, I was going to name this guy Rollbar, but I don't know if that fits. I went with a retro-styled Jeep graphics to try out some vinyl pinstripe tape I've had for a LONG time now. I wanted a military style design, and that is one of the reasons I went with the white-on-green look. Oh, I almost forgot, here are some photos.

    I will try to get some more photos from different angles for the unnamed custom, and I'm thinking of a cool name for him. If you have any G1 inspired names that would work that aren't derogatory or negative in tone, please suggest away. As I mentioned, I was going to call him Rollbar, but with the changes that just doesn't fit well anymore. Please, help me out here!

    Also, I may try to unify the robot mode a bit more, because it doesn't blend well with the vehicle mode. It seems, to me upon looking at it in more detail like something is missing one way or another. Suggestions, comments? Polite suggestions will be accepted, rude and abusive comments will not.

    I really like how you made that arm cannon work! Nicely done!

    I'm drawing a blank for names at the moment. I'll check back, hehe!

    Beachcomber... Normandy, D-Day... hmmm... Bunker Buster, or BB for short?

    RHansen, all I did to make it attach was drill a small hole using the awl bit of a Leatherman type multi-tool. I found where I wanted to drill, and moved slowly. I stopped occaisonally to check the fit and when I got what I wanted, I stopped.

    The HARD part was keeping my hands steady as I tried to lay those pinstripe graphics down. Quite challenging, especailly when you want symetry and have hands with nerve damage that twitch every so slightly as you move along. Grrr....

    Jeeper Creeper? Umm, I don't think so. I'll skip Jeeper and look at Creeper. Thank you for the input.

    Well, when I finish my original trio of "Ancient Decepticons," the Autobots will be outgunned and outskilled for the most part. :)

    Dude, I really like that! So, either Faux, or Fox. But, how to tie-in his arm mounted guided missle launcher on his right arm. He'd play off of one of my custom Decepticon warriors very well.

    a gift from the smoking gun...

    a d'con that appears to have all the answers for him, as long as a few jobs get done

    is he a meer rouge bt clone or is he something more, only the smoking gun knows

    "No matter where I go... there he is"

    can he be trusted?
    IS the smoking gun be real?
    or just another illusion?

    He reminds me of Outback with the huge cannon on the Jeep (and the head knd of emulates the original figure too.) I like the mods!

    Roadbuster. Yes, he is missing the orange and the brown but hey, he has the green, has a big cannon, and is a Jeep. Cover over the mouth and you'd even be close the the correct head type.

    Nah, can't call him Roadbuster because that is my truck... a 2003 Toyota Tundra. I have even ordered a "vanity" plate for Tundra like with the Alternators with RDBSTR on it. Now, something familiar like Rockbuster might work...

    So far I like the names Faux and Outback the most. Seems to fit him better.
