    I would LOVE a head like this for him. Anyone feel like 3d modelling something?

    It doesn't look bad, but it has too many G1 influences for my liking.

    Its just a custom MP hot rod head placed onto him, not an actual 3p head being made ;)

    Yeah I know. I've owned MP Hot Rod ;) 

    I wonder if someone has done this in a more creative way so far? Like a kitbashed head from another series or maybe even a heavily modified Optimus head.

    I am so glad I bought in on this figure. The transformation, the design, are all just so....sexy. I love how the hood compresses into the torso and how the interior of the chest hides the main car panels. Innovation at it's best.

    I'd still love to get this head if a 3d print or kit was available:

    I might have mentioned it before here but when I first saw Hot Rod's head I thought this was the setup:

    Dude, really nice pics! Sexiest alt mode of any figure I've ever owned, for sure.
    Same! I thought he had a visor and that the eyes were just weird cheek details.

    Dude I just noticed, you changed your name! Every time you used to post, I would mentally joke saying "Could Mango Juice what?"

    Congrats man!

    There's another user here named "Ellamin" and every time I saw his name I would think "Oh Pee." I think he saved my quote as a signature, lol (you don't have to do that, I just noticed I think weird things with people's handles is all)

    Hahaha that's hilarious! XD
    Yeah, I just got it changed a few months ago by an admin who was nice enough to correct my spelling error I made years ago haha. Someone once told me they thought is was a different way of spelling 'cold' like 'armour' or 'colour.'

    It has a different box and the tires are thin. There are other smaller differences but those are easily visible ones.
