    Hi, I found the following images on facebook years ago but I can't remember who made this custom. I need help from the members here in identifying either the customizer responsible or the parts used. It looks like the person used Classics Rodimus hip and the Classics Grimlock head. but I can't figure out the upper thighs. Can anyone here help me out?

    Oh yeah! I remember this one.

    Wanna say that's Energon Sharkticon's hips and thighs.

    Hooper, you wouldn't happen to remember who made these?

    Alas, no. It was posted either here or at Sector 70, which is now defunct.

    I remember because I got all the parts together to try and do this one but never did. The lion's share of it was Sharkticon gutted and cored, and the shoulders were... maybe those japanese ball joints that you buy in a pack?

    IIRC it didn't QUITE transform perfectly and there was a gap in the back of the dino mode.

    Anyway, hope that helps.

    I thought the head was from Transformers Classics Grimlock. Does Honda Saint have a webstore?
