    Took a small break from my other projects, mainly because the weather here's preventing me from any serious attempts at painting.

    I really love Steelcore and his weapons, but the lack of a giant melee weapon of any sorts offset him to me... Not sure why, but I feel as an honorary Wrecker (in my collection anyways), he wasn't going to Wreck 'n Rule with just a transformable rifle.

    So I scratchbuilt an axe from some metal rods and scrap plastic. Also went back and added two Autobot symbols once everything was cured.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    That's pretty cool. A cast of this would be nice, or a description of the parts used.

    Thanks!

    It'd be pretty costly to recast this because I don't have any recasting materials already purchased. The shaft is however made from hollow 5 mm tube pieces slotted over a 4mm solid rod. The main body of the axe is taken from a scrap SD Sangokuden Bandai model kit, and the blade and thrusters were from scrap option parts/styrene pieces I cut out.
