    So in a recent discussion, I commented on TR Hotrod making a good Turbo. I know this because I made one. When POTP first hit, my brother in law got me Jazz for Christmas, who broke coming out of the package. Now, being the dork that I am, i mever travel without a side bot, and i heppened to have Hotrod with me. With Jazz's broken top, but the legs intact, i realized that mating them with Hotrod's upper body would be perfect for ol' Turbo. Easy it was not, and a perfect fusion was not to be, but this is what I got.

    I don't even like gobots all that much, but this works so well, It just looks indescribably good, The parts just fit so well and the red looks amazing. Great work!

    Thank you for the kind words. Unfortunately, the parts don't line up great, but with some fidgeting I made it work for the shoot. He's my least favorite custom, partially due to this. Before painting, he seemed to line up perfectly. After painting and re-assembly, he looks like he got into a head on collision with Crasher. His bot mode saves this custom for me.
    Thank you both!

    That's too cool. Really wish we had some modern mainlined Gobots.

    Hunt for the Decepticons Tomahawk, removed the visor. It's a great head for so many projects.
    I use krylon fusion for the base, then drybrush either gaming paints (not sure of the brand, as I'm at work) or model master acrylics, also for the detail paints. I also use Tamya acrylics.

    Action Toys Machine Robo line is as close as we will ever get. And I guess that line is history since they never did release the last in their series or the ones they revealed prototypes for (Fitor and Turbo). Even they were a little figity. So best we can do is look forward to those who custom like this.

    I'm going to need the exact figures used since I've no idea about the ones mentioned in your original post.
