In today's review of G1 Iguanus, I said I wanted a modern version. Well check this out:
That, sadly, is a custom. It's the work of sommeone using the name "aprim" on all the Transfandom boards. It uses the upper body of the 12" Killer Croc and the legs of ML12 Apocalypse (despite his [?] claim that it's Onslaught - he just got the name wrong, no big deal). And best of all, it's functional!
And that's not just some random robot, either - just like the classic version, he transforms into a motorcycle:
You can see more work like this on the Primo's Customs page (or, as this image would suggest, "Primos Custom's," because apparently Primo doesn't have any friends who will come to him and say "that's not how you use an apostrophe, hombre"). But me, I'd love nothing more than to see Hasbro do a modern take on Iguanus that's half as good as this custom looks...
I dig Transmetal Megatron's chest being used as a belt. Really gives it some scale. Plus, makes use of some poor, broken Transmetal Megatron.
Actually Aprim already made an octopunch that was pretty awesome.
Thats pretty badass. Also looks like he used the Transmetals II Megatron chest piece/arm shield as this guy's chest armor. Looks great!
If you want to see another cool custom(not a transformer), check out this link: http://warrack.blogspot.com/2011/02/onslaught-behold-my-other-mighty-hand.html
Completely blew me away, incredible. His other customs are of equally good work
just an awesome figure
Thanks for the checking him out. I have since learned how to use and use an apostrophe lol.
Thanks again for the compliments guys.
And now, 10 years later, we have Legacy Iguanus.
Admittedly not a Pretender like the old days, but I can't wait for yo to review that one.
