    Hi, Here is a WIP of a Generations Beachcomber
    Started out as a Sandstorm figure but I wanted to make it fit into the classics/ generations area.
    Some mods that I did,

    Added ball joints for the headlights to fold back in bot mode.

    added rollbars

    made the wheelbase a little wider because I hated how close together they were.

    Hollowed out the inside of the chest and added a rotation to hide the head inside.

    Head is made from a classics bee with some poxie sculpt and styrene

    Added a new chest and took some details off of the arms and legs and bulked up the shins.

    I have some detail work to do, cleaning and sanding and then its ready for paint.

    thanks for looking! Comments and crits welcome
