    Hey guys! This one started as my foray into making Classics Roller(I'm on a Roller roll lately), but as I toyed with ways to conceal the head the shield came to be...

    So, my questions are:

    *Should I continue with the Classics Roller idea, and keep the shield?
    *Should I continue with the Classics Roller idea, and do something different to cover his noggin?
    *Is this destined to become a "WWI" Roller?

    I already put in the work to do the two-pack Optimus arm swap, they're glued in and staying put, so he's gotta become someone :) 

    Thanks!

    I'd keep rolling, just go with a Head swap. That shield is cool, I say keep it, man. :thumb

    No love for the deluxe-sized Prime head? I guess it's a bit too similar to Prime himself...hmm...what head would you suggest?

    Honestly, Cybertron Long rack! I had to plan to use it for my Roller, but opted for something a little better sized, It's a great head for the character, I think.

    That does look pretty nice, it's an option if anyone has one around. If I could find something younger-looking, that'd be great.

    Well i have a machine Wars Sandstorm head that i think would look really cool on that body, but it might be a little too big. maybe an energon stormjet head? ive got one of those laying around too. and by the way im gettng a totally different vibe form this guy than roler,

    Oh wow, I love that Sandstorm head! Do you have any way to take a picture with a size comparison(matter of fact, taking a pic of Sandstorm and Stormjet's heads together would work)? I'm staring at my Energon Stormjet, and that could work also...hmm...though I'd not behead mine. If that Sandstorm head is of the right size, we may have to chat...otherwise the Stomjet head is in my thoughts.

    You're right on the comparison to AM Meg's vehicle mode, that's a nice similarity.

    Oh man, I want that Sandstorm head. It's almost identical in size to the Prime head that I have on him in the first picture above. If you don't mind PMing me with details, if it's available that is, that would be great.

    Thanks a ton for the pic!

    My inlaws live in Nicholasville, BTW :)

    Honestly he gives off a Guiltar vibe,if it was me that's who I'd turn him into.

    But that Sandstorm head would look sharp on there too.

    Holy crap, I didn't know that Guiltar existed until now! That's a crazy crazy storyline, with a crazy crazy main character! If I had seen this fellow before, I'd almost certainly have gone another direction with it. Aahh maybe another day and another custom!

    To me it looks a bit like Energon Blight, with the arms having somewhat of a "double barreled turret" feel.

    You could shave off Prime's antennae and be pretty close to Blight too. That would do two things:

    1. Make a custom of a seldom kitbashed character
    2. Tempt you to make an updated Bruticus Maximus for me to drool over!:drool: 

    IMO Guiltar and Bludgeon have been done often enough, though it's always cool to see a new take on them. But the WWI Roller sounds awesome too. I'm torn, so torn!:thumb

    Haha, so many options eh David? I'm pretty-well set on my Classics/Universe Roller. After him I have(theoretically) just one more Roller I'd like to build. If this guy goes the WWI route, then I have two more to build as I still wouldn't have my C/U version ><

    Did you check out Mixmaster with his spiffy vents? He turned out great and I can't thank you enough for your contribution!

    It looks like he could make a really good Reverse Convoy.

    I've put a lot of ideas through my head for which direction to take this guy. I've settled on Classics Roller for certain, using MW Sandstorm's head. I think it'll be a fun one that shouldn't take terribly long to complete; then on to the next project.
