    This is my latest custom based of Alt Grimlock. It is based of the Mustang from the updated Death Race movie. Has been a labor intensive job thus far,but fun too. haven,t decide n a name yet. If you should have a suggestion? Let me know.

    Thanks

    Well this guy might make a nice Alternators Axor or Lockdown. Believe it or not,still i pick Axor since it might be a better choice if your doing with the classic "Carfront chest" look.

    I have the same plans for HA Barricade!!....I thought of using the Alt 'Stang for this too.

    Your progress is looking really good so far. That's some really nice styrene work you got going there. If you're planning a wheel swap, and haven't sourced any yet, JADA Toys Battle Machines Mustang has the closet looking thing to the FR500X wheels they used in the movie.

    As for name, why not just call him Frankenstein's Monster?....you could paint up a lil HA figure to match Jason's outfit in the movie to go along with it....if not that, if he's gonna be a bot, Autobot X, if he's gonna be a 'Con, Decepticon X.

    wait for them to reveal the names of the nascar wreckers in the movie and name him after on of them or better yet make all 3 nascar wreckers. it realy depends do you want more decepticons or more autobots?

    this is cool. I think you should leave him as grimlock, because i would think that grimlock would be an armored mustang.

    dude you have to be kidding me!!!!

    after watching death race the other day, i thought..."what a good idea to use up one of the many extra Barricades i have laying around"

    looks like yours will be a bit bigger and you are further along than i am. i also had to make the guns cuz i didnt have anything laying around for them

    NICE JOB tho so far, cant wait to see and compare when we are done!

    Plowking, I Have been having fun with finding wheels for this project....... I thought about taking part from a spare wheeljack that I have to get spot on movie wheels , but I decided to go more for something agressive. I wanted disc cover type wheels first. like knight rider style but cooler. I just sourced some wheels the other night though. I will be taking the wheels of a new nissan Z (alterinty Megaron) 24th scale car. They have a prety cool blade style wheel. Also thought about using a older Diabo's wheels too for the stagered ofsets. I will have to look for those battle machines though.......!

    far as the Frakenstien name i considered it among the names i brain stormed. I thought that it would be a easy way out somehow though. I like your idea of a driver for him.

    First time i saw the movie,I thought i have to do a project like this. I am trying to blend the two version of the movie car some what. the frontend styling of the first on and the guns of the second. Some of it is just what looks cool to me too. My guns are from the movie scout Dune Runner. A little over sized maybe. But when this willl be in bot mode,because of how i mounted them to the window cowl they will tilt forward and down to be shoulder guns! I haven't gooten my HA barricade out of the box yet,But i think he will make a great starting point too. Make a mean lookin bot for sure!

    I look forward to comparing our works too!

    I'm surprised by the fact no one has done this before also. I don't care to be the first. i just care to be good at what i do for my own personal standard.

    I hope to Have this done in the next couple of weeks. So no need to wait too long....
