    Got my hands on a very cool transforming bot from Walgreens and opted to make a super sized Windcharger out of him.

    The body and Alt mode is primarily the same as the original except for an entirely new paint scheme to match the G1 character.

    the cool thing about WC is that he has 3 modes of transformation:

    1) Robot mode - An updated bot mode for WC with his animated styled head (made from scratch btw, lots of sculpt, Styrene and the top part of a KO Jetfire head

    2) Car mode - Very similar to his original, tried to keep it that way as close as possible

    3) G1 Toy Bot Mode - Thats right with a few modifications and a head swap WC can look like his original toy form!

    I am 95% sure its a MARS converter, a massive upgrade to the silly MARS figures you always see stuffed beside transformers in walmarts,

    there is like 8 molds I think, of which I have seen 3, there are 9.99 or about there and yeah, I have only seen them at walgreens in brick and mortar, sure they sell online somewhere.

    Thanks for all the positive feedback. There really isnt anything special about the package for the mars converter it's about a foot tall, grey with a large plastic window.
    Thanks again,

    It's very badass. I dig the car mold, very slick and almost futuristic.
