    Back in 2005, i started to make an Alternators Soundwave, inspired by the late TFMaster

    While i was working on it, i thought it would be a good idea to see how good Grimlock could look in blue, at the time, i took those pics. Weeks later, i finished the Soundwave and "King" ceased to exist. Back then, i even made a storyline set in the Binaltech continuity

    Earlier today, i was looking for my old galleries, and all of them are down... everywhere! so is not a bad idea to re-upload the missing threads and pictures now. Sorry for the crappy quality

    Also, im thinking of redoing this custom, i got a Wheeljack KO body at hand... and some leftover pieces... perhaps a Boss sticker sheet from Toyhax?

    So, here´s everything for this forgotten kitbash!

    "Among winners, there´s no weak... and his cries and screams shall be music to my sensors"

    Role: Communications
    Created with the same purpouse of Meister´s clone, Zoom Zoom, "King" (As Grimlock nicknamed him) have a better artificial intelligence, designed to further emulate Grimlock's personality programming. Being able to take a high level of autonomous action, its perfectly capable of take actual combat and decistions even without Grimlock's remote control. Grimlock however, feels his clone is not what everyone thinks, so he´s keeping a vigilant eye all the time, ever since his "awake" incident. Unlike the original, King likes to stay in the base, helping Wheeljack with different tasks in the BT projects. Thanks to his constant interest in communications, Blaster asked if he could use him as an assistant for the radio transsmisions to Cybertron.


    Weapons: Concussion Twin blaster laser (most of the time stored inside his chest)
    Energon Sword



    System Description
    Project BT-10x was a joint project of Autobot scientist Wheeljack & the EDC to make more warriors for the upcoming battles against the Decepticons. With the help of Ford, Wheeljack decided to copy Grimlock´s body, but with a different colorsheme (as with Zoom Zoom) to differenciate the two. Grimlock didnt exactly liked the idea, but he knew any extra help was necesary


    Binaltech X history

    Operation: Disguise
    After the rebirth of Wheeljack as a BT, he started to work with the Ford Company´s Specialized Car Development Team, to create more units to help in the military attack´s against the Decepticons. Starting with two clones, one of Grimlock and one of his own self, using a combination of the technology to create Meister´s brother, Zoom Zoom, and the different developments for his body. Further down, the EDC detected an infiltration into the Autobot installation network, with several logins to this new Project archive. It was a matter of time before the Decepticons would try to steal these body templates, so Wheeljack with the help of Ratchet & Sparkplug rushed to finish the work. However, there were rumors of a red & black flying object inside the base, days before the big attack, but nothing was found. Weeks later, the BT Decepticons, lead by Shockwave & Ravage, and a mysterious swordman, attacked the Ford installation´s, stealing Wheeljack´s clone template, but a strange incident occured, suddenly Grimlock´s clone, "King" awake and help the Autobot to battle. With the Decepticons gone, and just one body template gone, Wheeljack´s decided to continue the BT work in another base, but Grimlock knew something was wrong with his new clone, so he will be watching every movement of his "brother" just in case...


    The history continues with Alternators Soundwave!
