    Ok. So I had an extra WFC Cliffjumper with no head. I didn't like the head on the HFTD Tomahawk. I put it on the WFC figure with some slight trimming and the head fit. I was going to paint it but I actually liked how the head and the body matched. The yellow lines on the head flow with the yellows on the figure and the black head looks nice with that visor too. The hardest thing was trying to think of a name for this simple head swap.

    So WFC Gobot Turbo it is. :)

    I like that! Hmm, I might do the same, I have a headless Cliffjumper after giving his head to my Classics CJ. But then I'll have a headless Tomahawk... so the cycle continues.

    Anyhow, nice idea! In addition to Turbo, I'm getting an Overdrive vibe from it as well, with the cherry red, pointy chest, and visored face.

    So simple, and yet soooo, so sweet. Slick stuff, Solrac.

    Time to turn Tomahawk into Spinister, I suppose. :p

    Glad you guys enjoy it. I really like how the head and the figure go nicely together with out painting. So anyone can do it.

    I went with "Turbo" for the name. Anyone else have other ideas for names?

    "SOLRAC"

    :wink: 

    A part of me would like to see you do something else to the alt mode at least to make it different than Cliffjumper, but another part of me really loves the simplicity of this custom . . . almost as if it's simply supposed to be this way. :)

    Yeah, I could have repainted it like I do any custom I make but this just looks like a figure that could be released this way.

    I think Turbo works great; personally I think he could use a bit of silver on the head and thighs to really bring out the homage, but the black actually works well anyway.

    Surely it's more like WFG Turbo, though, amirite? ;)

    Beetcha! :lol 

    Much of a muchness, really. Both turned into red cars and had similar faces (except for Spoiler having a faceplate and Turbo not). Neither particularly look like WFC Cliff, but the connection can be made for either.

    I think it's that when I think Turbo I see the hooded head, the black stripe down the front also mimicked Spoilers. just my 2 cents.
