    Hi, im not sure if I was supposed to start a new thread for an update, I just followed the tag under this section.
    Finished this up today...was really frustrating and trying but finally got the head to fit and hide out of the way in alt mode..also figured out most of his armor/truck parts. The armor.roof rotates around his arm, and the rear of the truck/leg armor flips up; so theres no binding hen trying to transform him. i know the back ha a gap still and is open..but at this point Im going to stop, I made him more for his robot mode anyway, so I'll keep him in it most of the time, like the rest. I used a head from tftm dropkick (sadly, now i have a dropkick figure without a head..didn't have any spare junk ones.) It took me 3..yes 3 bonecrusher figures to do this guy..make parts on one and carry them over to the main body. Now I feel like Im gonna be done for a while..really...lol. He's the leader of the group of 5 I made, came up with a nice little story for them all too.. You can see he's slightly taller than the other two taller deluxe sized figures i did. And theres a comparison to the original figure. As usual, just left to paint now, again any c&c is appreciated. Thanks

    Man that looks good! It's hard to believe that he was that short to begin with. Why did Hasbro have to make him a deluxe size, they could have done alot better if he was voyager size.

    This is just genius. Please keep making customs. Also, if its not too much to ask, can you please post a tutorial on how you made him.

    Customs like yours make Radicons worthwhile. An excellent original idea.

    Thanks
