    Well, I have decided to make the plunge into having a custome Transformer built for me. Its an ambitious task that will require someone with patience and the skill. I would like all those that are interested to please email me with examples of work as well as a cost estimate. I understand this will not be cheap. But its something I have wanted to have done for some time. We will work out the payment schedule and logistics via email. Below is exactly what i want and what I expect. Thanks to those that reple. and if you know someone that does this sort of thing, please forward this to them.

    I want this to be a larger scale figure.

    Must be a head master! (but does not need to sit in the car at all)

    Black with Deep blue and silver highlights!

    license plate to say "KRONOS".

    flat/satin finish, but well protected (the paint).

    Transformation is unimportant as long as the hood is where the head goes :) .

    Before you get started, would like general sketch of design idea. (I would like to be involved in this as much as I can).

    detachable sholder cannon as well and a hand blaster. (would also like to be involved with design of this)

    refrence photos are avaliable here:

    My email address is tonyc1978@gmail.com . all inquiries will be responded too. And I will advise vis this thread who I have chosen. This is a sort of grail for me and I would like as many respondents as are interested. Thanks!

    Sounds like you want an Engine-master. probably an Alternator would be a good choice for this.

    You have any ideas what car you want it to be at all?

    Considering the reference material, I'd guess a concept Lexus. Have fun with that one, folks. XP

    I'd say the best bet would be to start out with a 1:24 Plymouth Prowler and then just sculpt/cut the differences into the model. =/

    You'd be correct. I'm actually considering picking one of these up now - sounds like a fun project. I've got a few bucks to spare, so this guy and a bionicle.... I'll give it a go, but don't expect anything too soon. Too many projects atm and too much homework. XP I'll keep ya posted, and, if you like it, yer free to take it.

    I didn't trust the other ebay seller (here), and I'm too lazy to give 300toys my payment/shipping info. Also, the trailer will be nice for Alt Prime, or if I ever get around to an Alt Magnus.

    Anywho, I'll probably grab a Baraki or two at work tomorrow. I seriously don't feel like buying an alt just to reshell it. Hopefully I can snag a thinner cutting blade for my dremel...

    I'll look through that batch of minicons I received to see if any would make a decently-sized head. And no, I don't feel like giving up Rook or Crosswise to get the job done. I like their combined alt mode too much. >.>

    I won't know what to do with the rest of the car until I get the model in my hands, buuuuut...

    The upper torso seams straightforward enough. That hood was practically made to have a head popped on it. ^^
