    Sup? I made a Warpath. He looks something like this:

    warp1.jpg

    He's made from the torso of Voyager Optimus, although he's so thoroughly covered in styrene it's probably hard to tell! Fists are off TFA Wreck-Gar, thighs are off Blitzwing. I'm quite proud of how nice they look here, considering how bad they look on Blitzwing! :D 

    I made a video with transformation, WIP photos and silly dancing:

    What? Tanks have knee pads! Who says they don't?

    The tank mode is largely made up, but you know, it's a tank. As I mentioned in the video I wanted him to have a cohesive tank body and not be an H tank. It's only now I realize I probably could have gotten the treads to connect too. Oh well!

    KA-BLAM! The cannon doesn't move or pivot or light up or anything cool like Crazen's version. It's just a cannon.

    Made up tank partaaay!

    Here he is with Optimus. For Warpath I filled in the sides with polystyrene since the arms don't need to fold in there. Makes him a lot chunkier round the middle. He's slightly shorter than Optimus but a whole lot stockier!

    Since this is my last ever voyager please pardon me the self indulgence of showing him with my other heavily modded voyagers. They are a smart-looking but time consuming bunch! :D  warpathalt3.jpg warpath3.jpg

    Do people care what the backs of things look like? I dunno. Here are some backs anyway. You're welcome.

    Anyway, that's Mr. Path. I hope you enjoyed checking him out as much as I enjoy finally being finished with him! :D

    Some needs to do some shapeways custom Skybite head. Seriously as awesome as the Warpath is that Skybite is pure love.

    Thanks folks! Glad you're all digging him!

    Lol! Makes me wonder if it'd have been easier to entirely scratch build! :D
