    This project has been sitting around mostly done for over a year. After a failed head sculpting incident I gave up. When Wheel_Jack's head came up on Shapeways I snapped it up. It would need to be removed to transform. Not a problem for me, since I kinda broke this toy in a couple places so its transforming days are over...

    It's a relief to finally have this completed and I'm happy with it. Thanks for looking.

    That head is so exquisite. The eyes are really penetrating and life-like. Uh, robot life, that is.

    Very well done and that mold really works for impact or as an earthmode.

    How did you attach the shoulder cannon?

    I don't think the action master nature is a big loss to the figure to be honest, I think he can't have been shown tranformed more than three times in fiction anyway.

    And in the Marvel UK stories, that was because it had been so long since he had transformed, he didn't even know if he could anymore, so the fact that this toy could maybe break if transformed is really kinda perfect. Good job!

    Thanks guys! I'm far from the first to use the Captain America/Iron Man humvee though.

    Thanks!

    It was very easy! The cannon has a square, flat shape on it that allows it to rest very nicely between the windshield and the hood. Sits solid but you can still take it off.

    Thanks guys! :D 

    Ha. Didn't know about Impactor not transforming in Marvel UK history. Thanks.

    Thanks again!! Spyne, I used the Iron Man one. The Captain America one has a sculpted star on its hood instead of a triangle. It also comes with the shield instead of the gun I used as the shoulder cannon.

    You're thinking of Emirate Xaaron. Impactor was the leader of the Wreckers who died before Springer became their leader and was only in a couple of stories.

    Upon further research, I find that you are 100% correct. It must have gotten mixed up in my mind as I've only read Target 2006 once. Sorry for the mis-information, Algernon. My bad.
