    Sweet! :D  :thumbs2:  :thumbs2: 

    Love the attention to details. And the funny thing is the whole concept works if you substitute the ghost for spark.

    I'd love to see this made as a kitbash.

    Wow, awesome concept, Zeta! And an excellent execution of the idea, KS! So...awesome!

    A TF/GB crossover would be an awesome comic!

    Oh, and enduser0001's Magnum P.I. Ferrari must be brought to life. :D

    Better idea the flying VW Bugs.

    One word- Delorean

    Yes you heard me Do the Time machine from "Back to the Future" with a transformation simular to many G1 Bots like Prowl, Jazz. Meaning have the vents turn into Bot feet, beyond the feet make him look like your hearts desire. Athough I think haveing the Flux capasiter in his chest would be cool. Having a hoverboard would be cool too.

    I have little to no kitbashing skills, but I MUST build that. Anybody have a clue if they still make a model of the ecto-1 that is the same scale as Cybertron Red Alert? I have never wanted to kitbash anything more than this awesome idea. It just makes perfect sense.

    One small change I would make....I would just build the stream gun right into his arm, but still leave the hose/wire hookup.That would make the kitbash simpler. Looking at Red Alert, the modifications to car mode would be not TOO bad...chop the windshield and extend the hood, cover the rear wheel wells and add fins.

    I found a good kit:

    scale is 1/24th-ish..would that be right?

    Edit: That model is way too big, it's 24 cm, while RA is about 13 cm. I'll have to think of something else.

    I have had plans for my little art slave here for a while to do famous movie/tv vehicles as TFs... some have been mentioned already... Kit, General Lee, a couple of the Batmobiles... however, KS's time is limited these days with real life and other projects... as is my budget. lol

    All in good time.

    After looking around a bit, finding a proper size model to kitbash seems impossible..One would almost certainly have to scratch build all the parts, which is frankly beyond me.

    I'm not ready to give up yet, though.
