    The Mindsets half i messed around with like crazy to get to work like this tracks were switched (front to back),arms swapped & more failed configurations than i can remember.

    Gun is not a definite yet & the heads getting a bit of a resculpt.

    Thanks for lookin.

    Looking good:thumbs2:  I also like the fact his transformation is not like his original toy where just the turret becomes the body core and the treads stay where they are. The new transformation helps set him apart from Battletrap, although since Mindset was a deluxe isn't he a fair bit taller than his Duocon compatriot (then again, tanks are HUGE in comparison to simple trucks, so it kinda makes sense).

    Also, is the gun going to be the turret? I've always been bothered by how Flywheels' upper half never can fully open because that stupid gun barrel gets in the way, I always though it would have made a cooler gun than the thing he actually had.

    Thanks:thumbs2: 
    He's pretty much the same proportions as Battletrap,luckily Mindset is really squat!

    The turrets a tricky one my plan is to make him more like an artillary piece figured that was good justification for the side turret & original G1's toy was a really weird lookin tank.



    Oh and i forgot to say in theory i should be able to get Battlewheels & Flytrap out of this too!!!

    Even at this stage, Flywheels is looking just as sweet as his Duocon buddy. Man I can't wait to see him take shape. Very Nice! :thumb
