    Started alongside Transmetal Predacon Ducklaw, this was another Basic-class sized Transmetal.
    I tried to follow the show's Transmetal designs with beast mode colors being opposite of the pre-transmetal(orange->green) and keeping the original color present more in metallic instead(orange->copper).


    Beast Mode:

    Armordillo, Maximize!

    The whole transformation is just reversing parts. Flip the head out of the chest, flip the arms down, swing the shoulder panels the opposite way, flip the legs down, flip the backpack 180, done.

    Love it, but how is green the opposite of orange?

    I don't know.
    Somehow everytime I tried working on this custom I was like "It has to be green, because that's the opposite of orange".
    I do not know how I thought that.

    Wow this has an amazing nostalgic feel! Looks straight from the BW TM line!!

    i would suggest having some anodized part? Or cheat with chrome base, then translucent green to top off that Transmetal look :)
