...Sweeeeeeeeeheeeeeheeeee~~~t....


*ahem*

Yeah, I'm impressed, just like the last ones. X_x I love how your reshell jobs always look like "real" toys in both modes. "All killer, no filler, so to speak". >_>;

Nice. I love some of the little touches, like the toolbox and the scuffed up tread plates.

I'm wondering about the G1 Grapple missile. Does your left leg 'holster' act (storywise, at least) as a missile launcher, or is it just storage? And if it is just storage, is the missile rigged to fit somewhere else?

That toolbox concept is perfect! You really got creative with everything. :)

Great work. I was impressed when I first saw how you'd grafted the truck kit to the legs, transformed and all. I'm VERY impressed with how this guy turned out, and not the least disappointed. I can't get over your work. :)

Thanks guys!

There some things I'm not really pleased with after I got it all together. The paint job didn't turn out as well as I liked. I HATE painting yellow! A word of advice. Prime first! I didn't and I'm still kicking myself because of it. I ended up adding about 3 extra coats just to get the paint to look somewhat right. And some of the body panels don't match. :x

Also, when I was putting it together, I couldn't find the rear tail light lenses. So I ended up just painting it red. When I find another kit, it will be fixed.

It looks great. Hell of a lot better than I could have done. Those storage boxes came out beautifully. Kick ass work!

I know what you mean about painting yellow. I still remember painting my Alt Sunstreaker. OI!

Why don't you just come out and ask if the missle goes into one of his hand "sockets" or not. :P

Yep! I'm actually glad someone noticed that they where meant to be like holsters in bot mode. The missle fits into the wrist just like on Inferno. There's a picture of it in the stuff I sent to Devastator. I also reworked one of Smokes guns so it would be able to fit in the tool box.

Thanks for the compliments!

Thats an awsome Grapple. I was impressed with Inferno when I first saw him and I think Grapple might top him. You make them look like you should be able to buy them off the shelf at TRU or Wal-mart. I also would like to know if the missle fits to the arm.

Good God, Lobo. That's so extremely beautiful.

When I first saw the WIP pics I already knew this was going to be good, but not this good.

Wish I had your skills.

Of course, it does miss one little thing. I remember that you said you based this on your own...so, where's the little Lobo to go with this one?

fantastic job.

great work. i really like how it came out.
you've really mastered creating your own transforming devices
and hinges. it's hard to scratch build, because you really have to
have a trial and error process for building the transforming devices.

you've done a wonderful job, i especially love the toolkit/holsters, what a touch.

keep up the good work

Thanks for the quick turn around Dev's! Looks like it was a bust Sunday.
