    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

    Thanks folks! Glad you're all digging him!

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