    Currently working on my take on a WFC Siege SlapDash after getting the idea from the video review Thew did on the G1 figure. The Base is that of the Siege Mirage figure as the way his body is layed out is sorta perfect for a new take on Slapdash with the nose of the car becoming his lower section and the spoiler becoming his arms. Probably the bit what I'm most proud of is the new Engine block chest made by cutting off the old fake car nose chest besides the front splitter and then building on the space left with styrene and some left over parts from other model kits and sprue to create the chest engine, sadly it's not removable like with the G1 fellow but hayo it works.

    The new head and gun are both from Shapeways and made for use with the CW Mirage figure what in turn meant I've had to replace the ball joint on the Siege Mirage for a smaller one what was a easy task, just cut off the old one and adding in a new ball joint I had laying around, next up is just the painting really and he shall be done.

    Thoughts?

    I could see this becoming an Earthrise release.
    But nonetheless I'm looking forward to see your finished take on it :thumbs2:

    At first I thought you used Legos to make the engine. Didn’t realize it was scratch built
