    Took longer than I expected to get these up, but I've had a couple busy days with Halloween and all. :) 

    Anyway, some things I'm extremely happy with, and others not so much. The doors for instance. They don't open as traditional gull wing doors for visibility reasons. Had I attached them to the roof (the easier way) they would've been barely visible. They would've been too hidden behind the vehicle. And being such a cool feature of the vehicle, I want to see them (along with all other iconic features of the BTTF Delorean) as much as I can. So I kept them in the same location as the Z cars.

    EDIT: has gull wing doors now.

    Speaking of the Z base, I used it because all of the vehicle parts are displayed wonderfully front and center. Had I used the Lambo base for instance, much of what makes the BTTF Delorean so recognizable would've end up on the backside.

    Polar Lights recently (I think?) released a BTTF 2 model. I might give this another go and make a hover version!

    Anyone recognize the weapon? :D

    Seriously, will this be a non-transforming Deloreon?

    Thanks for the interest guys! Should be another day or two...just finishing up some last minute details. :) 

    Unfortunately, yes...I tried like heck to make it transform, but the wheel bases were off by too much between the donor and the MP Z car... It would've required lengthened legs or torso and I really didn't want this figure to be that much taller than my other figures...but believe, I considered it for the cool factor.

    Wish I would've used a Bluestreak...it would've saved me some painting...I ended up going with a Prowl. He just happened to be the figure I had on hand when the idea came to me.

    The flux capacitor as a weapon?! No no no! It's what makes time travel possible! :D 

    I'm actually not sure about the name yet...I've got lots of possibilities though...

    - Gigawatt
    - Flux
    - Outabot
    - Outatime
    - 88
    - Eighty Eight
    - Aydee Ayte
    - Bob :D 

    Other ideas?

    If it's not Steelskin I will be disappoint.

    Thumbs up for using Minimates though!

    Hope to see this in 24 hours, as threads in Radicons require actual physical work shown to be posted first :wink:
