    This one got finished years ago... 15 years to be exact, but never had a proper gallery done, started to reupload some pics to various threads and found a folder with pics along with Bombshell. Sorry for the crappy pics, but they are from 2005!

    Started with a Wheeljack (duh :p  ), with Swindle head and RiD Omega Prime ears, inspired by the late TFMaster

    For the overall deco, i decided a simple black with Purple. The abdomen was custom molded with epoxy, going to that G1 look. Seats were left in red, thinking about the stock configuration from the dealership, although the back was painted purple to compliment the robot mode

    Currently, the figure has been on permanent display in my collection, but the head broke several years ago... so its headless for now. Im waiting for a Swerve to make a custom Shrapnel to finally finish my trio, so in the near future ill make a better gallery :)

    That head works too well for Kickback! Nice job. Needs some Decepticon insignia though. :p

    Toy looks great.

    but HOLY SHIT. 2005 was 15 years ago. Reading that statement... just the point of how long ago it was, just floored me. Felt like yesterday.

    God I feel old.

    I was actually looking at a couple of my old aborted alternators kitbashes the other day. Maybe I’ll take a look at them again someday...

    ...still blows my mind how long ago these toys were out...

    Would you happen to know if the ball joints for Wheeljack's and Windcharger's heads are the same size? Thanks!
