    an idea i've always had floating in my mind ever since i first held the tftm07 leader class prime in my hands.i do have a junker leader 07 movie prime i want to also do this to,but he's missing a few pieces so he may go the route of being battle damaged.
    back on topic,this is the dotm commander prime,repainted as a ode to the vintage super gobots staks.the only real mod was removing his head with pliers and fusing the swiveling head flap/top of sleeper unit in place.
    the paints are all tamiya and the yellow/white stripes are hand cut vinyl.

    the vintage original,pics taken from the internet to save me from digging mine out.

    This is awesome, Staks has always been a gobot favorite of mine and one of the characters I wanted to see cross over into Transformers. :thumb

    Go bots were meant to be piloted, not automatons. The cartoons changed that.
