    The tank body used is from a military toy set from RITE AID pharmacy. The legs are from a crappy Decepticon jet that I can't identify (If anyone recognizes him, you can jump on in. He has a cone head of sorts and thruster hands) and the rest is styrene sheets rods and tubes. .
    The turret still rotates and the arms swing up on their own little arms, so they shoulders can be in the right position. Still lots to do so crits and comments are welcome. Thanks for looking.

    The Jet was Armada Thrust. He was the only Conhead with green legs if I remember correctly.

    Anyways, this promises to be good!

    I think it's Universe 1.0 Sunstorm.

    Looks great so far! You're capturing his proportions nicely!:thumbs2:

    Right mold, wrong colors. Uni. 1.0 Sunstorm is the one on the right, next to the mini-con and the legends:

    This is the mold's original colorscheme for Armada Thrust (note that the legs are the same color as are the ones on the Warpath):

    Frankly, I think Sunstorm's colors are pretty decent on this mold, certainly an improvement over what it did look like...

    Armada Thrust! That's him! Autobot Burnout gets the point for answering first. Thrust here was a thrift store find for me. His parts almost made it into a couple of projects over the past year or so. I'm glad I finally found a good use for the legs at least.
    Thanks everyone for the help and the kind words!
    DL- Love you too brutha!
    Big Hank- Glad you like the proportions. I was worried that I'd be out there on my own in loving that Minibot stubbiness.
    IF IR IE IE ID- You know that's his big uni-titty not his no-no!
    Rumble619- Don't you dare! The world needs all the Warpath as it can get!
    Orio- Thanks man!
    And thanks again, everyone!

    Lookin' great so far, Dave! Very interesting and after seeing how you handled Kup, Blitzwing, and MP Blaster/Twincast, this is definitely must-see! Can't wait to see more on this, bro.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone!
    Heck no! My guy here likes to get noticed!
    Now comes the part where anyone who hates broken treads really should look away. I'm not a fan of them myself, but there's no way to do a G1 Warpath without them. I figure that on Cybertron, they've perfected a "smart tread" system, where the threads can all lock down and separate in any configuration, and not flop off of their wheels like a real tread would.
    Anyway, elbows!

    Thanks! I hope to do more soon! I'm testing colors on the turret now, and digging through parts boxes for hands.

    I like, only one thing I would change - the feet are too big, they look like clown shoes. If they were able to slide back a little it would balance out better IMO.

    I'd also make the panel on back able to fold down.

    Warpath IS broken treads, so more power to ya!

    The only thing I DON'T like about the legends mold is that he's a quad-tank, you've got a proper Earth-Mode *BLAM*War*ZAM*Path*ZOWIE!* goin' here :)
