    Using an extra Animated Oilslick I made a G1 styled Wreckgar. I loved the Animated version but this was a labor of love for me.

    In alt mode his face is covered by part of Jazz's stoplight . The wheel is now magnetically attached on either side of his arms. His "ax" is sheet plastic with twist ties for strings

    He goes live on ebay tonight!

    I am also including the Animated Skids I made. You can see what the blue does to the pics when I have them both together. WEIRD!

    Outside of the fact I think it should have been an accordion instead of a guitar, I love him!
    The custom is a wonderful blend of G1 & Animated figures!

    Haha! That looks great! :D  You've done a great job integrating his oversized head into his bike mode :thumb . & is that chest piece from RiD Prowl? I thought I recognised it from somewhere...

    I'm loving your work more and more, buddy! This one is just so much fun! The fact that this one means so much to you really translates well through the photos you've shared here (especially the one of him riding himself, as pk said :) ).

    Squeezing that big blocky head into that confined space is quite impressive. You guys who use TFA Oil Slick to make other characters continue to amaze me.

    Nice work!

    This is very cool. It actually doesn't look animated at all any more.

    thanks everyone I really put more into this since he was meant for sale, where most of my previous sales have been toys I made for my own collection but lost interest in. they belong to others that will appreciate them more now.

    yes that is rid prowl's chest

    the buzzsaw is from leader bulkhead.

    I forgot how many different bots went into him, lol
