    noname (26).jpg noname (27).jpg The kids were getting rid of some transformers that were just beat to hell. Of course I had to come up with a project. The backpack is from a hero masher Megatron. A lego technic pin attaches the backpack right to the seeker 3 port exhaust. The tubing is a mystery. Maybe lego, maybe Megablocks. It was in a bulk lot of legos. It was 2 pieces but I used heat shrink to combine and bulk them up. The nozzle is from a "Walgreens" Shockwave. The handle to the nozzle is a cut down technic piece. The flame is hot glue sculpted around a technic pin that fits in the nozzle.

    Since I don't own Hotlinks, skywarp is my stand in.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks! I was trying to make it standout against Skywarp' s colors but it seems like too much silver. The kids like it so I'm going to let it go. Lol.

    Really cool. Acrylic or enamel paint on the glue?

    Thanks. I used craft paint. I had some kicking around. I want to say it's acrylic. White base coat, then yellow and then red highlights. I should have waited more between coats. I was in a rush.
