An interesting array of minibots, mostly custom along with Botcon Huffer:

Powerglide and Beachcomber are predictable but still nice. Scattorshot to Warpath is interesting.

Seaspray's colours are what I've always wanted on Shortround's body, the toy was made for that homage.

I am really impressed by the transformation of Longview into Cosmos. It's an inspired choice that works so remarkably well. I was tempted to make an offer for those last two... but the seller doesn't ship internationally and so saved me a few hundred dollars!

Edit: More pics of the Classics Cosmos (http://www.figurerealm.com/viewcustomfigure.php?FID=7340), I'm in love.

Nope, I hadn't seen these pics yet. I was thinking of someone else's, i think. But hey, I get smacked in the head from footy pretty often so u know, it's not unusual or anything.:p

I'm sure he wouldn't. He'd welcome them. But get in line! There's a cue! His greatliness will divine whom he thinks is the better smelling in order to determine our order of preference!:p

More seriously, i'd love that strong arm being turned into Gears. Looks awesome.

it doesn't actually look *TOO* hard, really- Need to investigate what to use for the stuff stuck on cosmos (the 6 ... nerf bullet looking like things) and probably would just need more refs so I can pull off the head and the colours. any takers? :)

He's seemingly reselling the Cosmos. Here's the listing from which he acquired it with some more clear pics:

EDIT: Any one know what gun Bumblebee is holding in that pic? Looks wicked!

I don't think anyone's gonna fork out that much moolah for that lot (http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=200236560402&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=010) :confused:

Thanks Gok. It looks badass.

Isn't there something wrong with the fact that the gun is actually better than the Prime... :rolleyes:

did anyone venture to his website??

he made Animated Lockdown into Batman/Bat Mobile (but the autobot symbol is still visible *keke*)

Since lockdown is a Decepticon, I'm assuming that the Autobot symbols are intentional.

It might be just me but I believe this insignia:

replacing the 'bot one in alt-mode would have set it off perfectly... :)

(& that's my 2 cents for the day :D)
