    NICE WORK!!! Those figures would look great amongst either the Alternators or movie characters. That mold is one of my favorite TF molds, and by far, is one of the best motorcycle Transformers. Nice paint job. It reminds me of some of the old Indian motorcycles I've seen.

    Gee, I wonder why. Is it because the bike is pretty close (1:20-23 or so) to the 1:24 alternators?

    Yeppers. That would be the case. :D 

    If scale isn't an issue (see above quote), then yeah, it would :)

    I've been wanting to make a "Classics" Wreck-Gar, but I can't find a bike that I like the robot mode of (other than Energon Arcee)...

    Good luck!!

    While I'm really not a fan of that mold, I really like what you've done. Very nice work.

    That looks Great! I'm not sure why you don't like the acrylic paint. It looks fine the way you painted it up. If you want to stop the paint from scrapping off, put some "laquer" overcoat on it. I would use a flat finish since Wreck-gar is so rusted up. (you really took your time with all those details)

    I'm also confused about your comment about his balance. The pose you have him in looks like he should be sitting on the other bike. (it's probably the same figure but it looks like there are two of them). I had to find, and open, my unmodified Lugnutz, to see how he transformed, to find out why yours won't stand up.

    If you straighten the knees and then have his hips come forward a little, you can then have his, torso, lean back enough that he isn't looking down. He no longer falls over but if you want to put him in different poses, then you might have to place something under his heal.


    If you get a second one done, could you take some pictures of one driving the other? Thanks

    These look GREAT man! Your work is really inspiring! I've had these guys on my shelf for months with plans to customize 'em, but I've not gotten to it. This makes me want to throw 'em on the table and get to it, hehe!

    I really like the rusty treatment you've given them. VERY nice work man, very nice! :thumb
