    This is Wasteland. He was inspired by Storm Vapors Stripmine. I spoke to him about ideas and made a character to go up against his. I really wanted this guy to have a wrecking ball for an arm and finally found one that fit. (imaginexed villian robot arm) I hope you enjoy. I may go back and do more detailing and add a crane on him later for a 2.0 version.
    Name : WASTELAND
    Allegiance: Autobots
    Subgroup: Junkions
    Quote: “This is a test of the emergency broadcast system. This is only a test.”

    After Stripmine and his team of Ravagers got closer to the Planet of Junk, Optimus Prime allowed Wreckgar and Junkheap to send warning to their comrades. Wreckgar wished greatly he could return to his homeworld to help before Stripmine could destroy it all. A message was sent back which said “aint no thing, if we build it they will come, Down with the bloody big head”. Wreckgar immediately knew what that meant, though Optimus Prime had no idea how to translate the tv lines into Tangible thought. The message was clear. All is well, and that the Junkions were building something to keep them all safe and help stop the monstrous team heading their way. WASTELAND was the creation. He was built using design specks sent from Ratchets Medical history of Stripmine from before his fall out with Prime. Wasteland was out fitted with extra armament to keep the smaller Ravagers from getting in to close to him or reaching his weak spot, his head. Due to his design coming from an outside source, WASTELAND is not prone to only talking in TV. Infact he rarely speaks at all. He hopes when the Ravagers do land on Junkion they will realize the planets worth and they can leave in peace. He knows however that he will have quite the fight on his hands if they don’t and he fears even with all his might, he may just be too outnumbered. WASTELAND wants very much to get to earth so he can use his talents rebuilding rather than for destruction and defense

    You know i think I like your Altmode's scheming a bit more than Stripmine. You have captured that almost Dinosaurian look that heavy construction equipment seems to project. I have always thought that Construction vehicles had an animalistic "look" to them and that was why the Constructicons seemed to be the perfect adversaries for the Dinobots. Really good stuff!

    Been a fan of your work from day one B. This one is no exception. I just love how you come up with stuff, and make it all flow together.

    Ima agree with what Thy said here....even if just a little on the treads/feet....if not, its still an awesome piece sir.

    Thanks Guys.

    Yes I plan on more detail and Weathering at some point down the road. GLad you guys Like it.

    Deliciouspetere = Thank you very much Same to you.

    Stormvapor= Thanks man. And thank you for supporting me as I worked on this. Yes I agree with you about the construction alt mode having a definite animalistic vibe. I wasnt sure if his alt mode would be one that worked or not but it seems That I have pulled it off. Now I just need to photoshop some images of our bots going head to head :)

    I think this is pretty cool. I agree some weathering would do wonders for this. Also, Wasteland would have made a better Decepticon name. Nice work.
