    Hey everyone, I decide to try out some ideas that I had when doing my Tracker figure using the same bonecrusher body. I wanted to make these two a team using almost the same alt mode but different robot mode and transformation. This is also my first time using styrene and non-plastic hinges. Theres still a couple gaps that I need to fill in..mainly by the rear wheels. I used the bonecrusher body, wheels, and upper legs..the lower legs from a tftm stockade figure, and the head and arms from a tftm wreckage figure, and random other bits.. This is the 6th custom figure Ive ever done..and I feel more and more inspired to do more by seeing the stuff you guys put up. Theres alot of rough parts and I know its not as good as it couldve been. Any c&c would be appreciated. I really need a good camera..:(

    This is coming along great! I always though that the lower legs on Stockade looked cool.

    This looks to be a really cool project, and I wish you luck. My suggestion would be to use little bits of thin styrene pieces cut up to add some detail/depth to those pieces you've added to change the shape of the back of the vehicle.

    I was talking to SQ7 on the phone while looking at this. he commented that it looked great, and thought it could use some smaller hinges. I have the perfect suggestion for that: Dubro airline hinges. those things are tiny, and thin, and the plastic part of them is semi-clear. Will really make them harder to see, and much less intrusive!

    SWEET. This is a really nice hybrid design. I like him better than the bots he was derived from! :)

    thanks everyone..I wish I had known about those dupro hinges earlier..these are a bit of an eyesore..but they were the smallest i could find locally...there isnt much of a hobby atmosphere down here in SFL, so parts are hard to find....luckily there isnt much of a toy scene either..so its kinda easy to find figures for parts on clearance (There are rotf toys EVERYWHERE stacked high). I redid the legs/rear wheel panels to be more symmetric..there was a bit of a problem with parts binding before..It also covers a bit more area with styrene as Redline suggested. This is just the main functional parts for the figure.,.im gonna add details with styrene strips..and should be able to reduce how pronounced the hinges are. Think Im gonna give him some swords as well. Thanks again
