    Yeah, I'm digging the idea of making an Autobot X action figure!
    I looked on the net and can't find much on him....
    I'd like to know what maked autobot X...IMO, half of his chest is from
    Prowl.. I think.

    Anyways guys, I want your point of views!

    Thanks

    I think....

    Prowl/Trailbreaker - chest
    Sunstreaker - upperarm/left
    Hoist's "gun hand"
    Hound - shoulder rocket, thighs

    After that, I am lost...

    Johnny Reb made one from Alts a looooong time ago (like '04-'05)....the pics arent available anymore either :(

    I'm not sure he was intended to have parts of existing Autobots. I mean, if he had, they'd have drawn the pieces to be more recognizeable. The parts look familiar, obviously, because the designer probably drew things he/she was used to drawing, but I think the parts are intended to be generic.

    If you're going for a G1-accurate A-X, I'd scour model kits and Junker Alts in the Buy/Sell thread.. If not, you can do the same thing, but building him will be even more fun, since you can be creative about the final outcome. If he transforms, you're a miracle worker, but then, A-X isn't supposed to.

    I'd like it to fit the deluxe size. I'm also beginning to think I'll sculpt, scratchbuilt most of the parts except maybe for the prowl chest and left car door...I just hope I can think of a head that I would sculpt around it....

    The upper right arm - yeah, Hound. Or a Dinobot. The lower right arm looks a bit Jazzlike, and I think the weapon is Prowl's - it's certainly a standard handpistol turned sideways. What amuses me is that the left lower arm looks like Soundwave's (recolored). Or maybe Hound's as well?

    The right lower leg - in some scenes, it's actually got Optimus kibble on it. Otherwise, it could be Wheeljack.

    Plus, of course, the noggin is deliberately styled to resemble Frankenstein's monster, bolts and oversized cranium and all.

    !!!! i've been planning on one of these as well. After kitbashing, you end up with a shoebox (or 2, or 3) full of random pieces. Once I clear some space I wanna take this on!

    Ebay:
    Using the models from Transformers: The Ark book this is what I think.

    HEAD
    Nothing specific but has Prowl fin and Prime antenna.

    CHEST
    Right is Prowl and left is Trailbreaker

    BACK
    The same as chest pieces. It doesn't look like it by the model, but watching the episode you can see one side of his back is Prowl's with the bumper leading around to the light bar.
    The other is Trailbreaker's with extra detail.
    Door wing is Bluestreak.

    RIGHT AB section looks to be Prime.

    RIGHT ARM
    Shoulder - Hound's fender with missile.
    Upper arm - Looks like Grimlock's with less detail.
    Lower arm - Looks like an exaggerated Sunstreaker's with less detail.
    Mounted gun is Jazz's.

    LEFT ARM
    Shoulder - Top of Sunstreaker's arm.
    Upper arm - Looks like a simplified Wheeljack's upper arm.
    Lower arm - Hound's with Prime's wrist.
    Gun hand -Trailbreaker's.

    WAIST
    Center - Looks to be Jazz, but the sides just look generic. Hound has stripes on his waist similar to A-X's right side.
    Back center - Mirage's lower back.

    RIGHT LEG
    Thigh and lower leg - Looks like Prime's with less detail.
    The round piece on the side looks like what the tire becomes on Hound's leg.
    Foot - Trailbreaker's, but with the piece that runs up TB's leg only running up the foot.
    Back of leg - The design doesn't match any Season One TF as far as I can tell..

    LEFT LEG
    Thigh - I do not know. It doesn't seem to match any Season One Transformer, but looks like they were going for a Trailbreaker look.
    Knee -Trailbreaker's.
    Lower leg - Jazz with a piece from Hounds upper foot.

    I think I'd mostly concur with Wombat King, although I'm tempted to suggest that the right upper arm isn't Grimlock's, but still Hound's, same as the shoulderpad.

    Also it needs to be taken into account that the colouring seems to be pretty arbitrary (as evidenced by the green thighs, even though one is blatantly Trailbreaker's). And even some of the shapes seems to change. For instance, although it seems that the lower left leg is mostly Jazz's, in certain shots, it actually looks more like it came from Brawn...
