    The big reason why I don't sell is that, yeah, I get paint scratching on most of my customs. Luckily, the Rook base isn't too bad with it. I'll definitely be showing both modes...and combined mode!

    And I know everyone has been asking about the torso. Like it, love it, or hate here's what "I'm" going with based on available parts, skills, and resources...

    ...I'm going with a mostly black and silver Casey Jones for the bot mode. I think it'll look solid for alt mode. Splinter is just a bugger to do right with his rat face and the posture of the bot mode wouldn't look right...plus he doesn't tower over the Turtles and most core figures will. I'm crafting a hockey mask for the face and some hockey sticks for weapons.

    for the combiner mode though...I'm going to try my best to get a MetalHead vibe going and cut down the Bruticus head. I maaaaay even make kind of a Shell shield out of styrene, but that's on the back end of my want list if I can get to it.

    You could either replace or redesign Onslaught’s cannons as a hockey stick and baseball bat.

    it would be really cool if you could reshell (pun intended ) onslaught’s Alt mode into a TMNT Party Wagon

    Great idea! Maybe turn one into a baseball bat and the other into a short hockey stick and use the baseball bat as the Extension of the hockey stick.
    Or at least paint him like that.​
    Which color scheme did you intend to apply, @Spudmunkey ?

    Nope, no party wagon for the core, overall it'd just be too much yellow and then to make it work in bot mode, especially as Casey Jones, who is a totally different color scheme?

    Besides, I have a Towline lined up for that. ;)  If I could find a good head, maybe I would redeco a Rattrap for Splinter.

    Yea, right. Better give him his own vehicle.
    Transmetals Rattrap might be a good fit. Or take only his head and put it onto a Bayverse Crosshairs. He's got a coat/bathrobe...

    Or do something like this below as Crosshairs' feet look exactly like the TMNTs' feet:

    How did you get so many rooks? I can barely even find one that's less than 100 dollars.

    Honestly? I put the word out I was looking and two wonderful fans sold me them pretty cheap (for Rook) and eBay for the other 2. I actually have 2 other Rooks, one is staying uncustomized, the other my son customized with a black marker (he's still learning!).

    Believe me, I've made 15 customs with CW Wreck-Gar, I'm used to digging for them.

    You ain't wrong!

    Got Casey Jones done tonight, hit weapons are a WIP still, but here's a peek! I tried to find a way to get the color scheme to match the old school look from the original cartoon. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!

    Looks great, dude :thumbs2: :thumbs2: :thumb 
    Is he/Are they done now?
    I really like the use of Wreck-Gar's weapon as shurikans.
    But I'd still like to see them all in alt mode if possible. And the combined mode from more angles.

    EDIT:
    Shellshock - Transformers Wiki
    Coincidence?

    Naw, not a coincidence, I'M TAKING IT BACK!

    It just seemed fitting for a play on words and combiner name.

    More alt modes and everything will be in the photoshoot. Most of that is just me testing that combined mode works!

    NOOO! Don't take it back! It's a great name for the combiner. I was just curious because I thought it's already the name of a PCC but that was Bombshock.
    EXECPT you name him Metalhead. The color scheme and appearance would suit the character pretty well.

    The overall combiner mode is more an homage to Metalhead than anything. I'm a stickler and if I make Metalhead...it'll be a MetalHead. Even in my own collection new or custom, I don't tend to do the same character twice.
