    Any specific plans on what you want to do? I assume the obligatory head swap and paintjob, anything else?

    Then what's the problem? What do you need us to help you with.

    Just get some paint, and try it. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst. Oh, and get a scrap figure to practice on first. Something really crap you don't mind destroying (Gen. Drift, i'm looking at you!)

    I'd pop the window out more and add that slant and then the obvious color changes and head.

    add that I'd also turn the wheels into speakers. Invert the hub.

    Get rid of the teeth grill and make it either one uniform piece or pimp it into some bling grill or make it look like the play, rev and ff buttons. Also get rid of those claws on the side. Wow, this soundwave is a crap design I'm noticing as I look at it.

    Add to the tape-window that maybe it should open and be big enough for the tapes.

    Get rid of the vents on the lower legs, make that flat with maybe some mechanical texture.

    I'd do all this myself but I have too much to do as it is.

    Honestly, while Fishdirt has some great ideas, i would advise to just stick to a straight repaint possibly with a head swap for your first bash. Over-complicating things is never a good idea.

    Not really over complicated. Simple styrene adjustment to the window and front grill. Cut the claws off. Styrene over vents. Buy model wheels of similar size or grab another tf with inverted hubs and repaint. Actually it'd be a simple starter conversion.

    Granted the cassette mod would be a bit more involved.

    I think it would be great if you could make some sort of Spoiler for the top of the car to make it more "urban".

    Also, put some type of details over the red paint job on the car mode, maybe some equalizer lookign bars, or maybe a stripe that looks like those monitoring devices.

    Change the weapons obviously, it would be neat if you could salvage the current weaopns, then mod them so that they would hook together to make Blaster's rifle.
