    This is looking phenomenal, the torso looks spot-on and the legs are perfect. I'm glad you didn't go down the styrene road, since well-cut donor parts often look more 'robust' and add a little extra detail. The thigh parts in particular are incredibly well-chosen.

    I really want to do a take on this myself at some point, but leader-class junkers seem to be hard to come by these days. *accusing stare* lol just kidding, keep it up ;)

    Thanks for the kind words everyone! Here's a small update. Cut off the pieces next to his head, and filled it up with parts from Sideswipe. Also cut up his doorwings to rework the suspended panels, so that I can choose how to pose them. But more importantly, I gave him articulated fingers with claws that are a lot closer then the basic Brawl ones.

    Youch, sorry to hear that. Hope you can fix him up, and I look forward to seeing it completed! :thumb

    The claws came from Classics Grimlock. It was laying in a drawer, serving no more use whatsoever, and I noticed that the claws had an almost perfect shape. So I fugred, hey, why not?

    Another update!

    Did some major work. Added some minor things on the legs, but I fixed the shoulder plates, redid his claw arm, placed the wheels on both arms lower, and modded his head and went even more to town with the battle damage. Test fitted some chains, as well.

    The head looks perfect, the small leg wheels are still bugging me though, mainly because you've got Optimus's visible and they are noticeably larger.

    Sadly I still don't have any suitable replacements. But hopefully it helps a bit now that the wheels are a bit more hidden from sight.

    Another update! Nearing completion now! Started work on his shotgun as well.

    If you have a Mixmaster from the Devastator set, you could use his tires. they'll work perfectly.
