    Finally got around to painting him up and getting him done.

    The base figure is a Fansproject Thundershred.The head,legs,chest pieces,the tips of his bot feet and the insect legs all came a G1 Chopshop.I left his shoulders mis-transformed to give him a different look.You can tell by looking at the pic with both of them together.The black shoulder pads are what I'm talking about.I tried to mod him enough to look as different from TS/Shrapnel as possible.

    Thanks for looking

    Who's Chopshop? Hearing stuff like that makes me feel old haha. Here's a bio on Chopshop, Warp.http://http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Chop_Shop
    Dude this looks bad-ass! The toned down orange was a great choice! My only critique is that it should be on my shelf and not on your towel.

    Chopshop is one of 4 Deluxe Insecticons that came from a different line of japanese transforming toys before being picked up by Hasbro to fill out the american toy line more. There is also Barrage, Venom and Ransack.

    This is a very nice homage to Chopshop, Rumble619. So well done that it would be a shame not to see a retool of this from Fansproject. Maybe if someone just happened to send a pic of this to them.........lol. Of course, since you and Spoonman are already upgrading the first 3 Insecticons, maybe a retool kit might be something to consider, what about that? I'd buy it, and i'm sure others would too.
