    Wheelie. The Transformer that everyone loves.

    Loves to hate that is.

    Long before the legends figure was ever revealed, I started this guy, prompted by his sudden found coolness in his spotlight issue.

    It started as a cybertron ransack, modded the head slightly, and did a crappy job of cutting the ridges off of the wheels.

    I set it aside halfway through the paint job, frustrated at painting orange, and kind of forgot about it for a few months. I finally decided to finish, and thus, this is the end result.


    enjoy, but don't hate...

    and props goes to anyone else thats done this

    Looks cool to me...he'll really be super sharp once you've went thru and done your touch-ups :thumb 

    And whats wrong with the wheels?...they look fine to me.

    Very nice. This mold makes a surprisingly cool Wheelie.

    Looks pretty good man. I've always liked that mold and since you made him into a "classics" character I like him even more. Can we get more of the 3-wheeler mode? Like from the top and the front to see how the wheels look all around

    Ask and ye shall receive. There ya go!

    I temporarily deleted them. I did some touch-ups and took new pictures. Now he looks even better!(kind of...)

    It's not even that difficult. All you have to do is fold the wheels back from the normal motorcycle mode like you would to transform it to a robot, and there ya go! Instant Wheelie!
