    here is my take on wheelie. he is a bit oversized to fit my classics line better

    i added a articulated arm because i hated how the original look

    i do need to take the fist out due to limited space but its a small price to pay.

    Ain't that something! That's about all that mold needed. I think his robot mode fits into the classics line better now. Even the two-tone paint job is awesome. Where are the arms from?

    Woah, did you say oversized? I've seen a couple of these: did this start out as the green one?

    And I second the tut request. I'd love to see exactly what you did with the doors.

    I keep staring at this and looking back at my factory one, but I can't quite figure out what's going on here. How did you do that, man?

    there are alot of shaving involve to make sure that is sufficient space for the part to tuen back to a car but that would depend ung the arm that will be used.

    very cool mod and paintjob indeed.
    but i just notice the palm/hand are reversed.
    the orientation of the thumbs seems to be on the wrong side.

    it's an inspiration for me.
