My 2nd alternate from Creator set 31007 Power Mech resulted in this transformer.
About this creation
With 3 completely different type of models in the original kit, 2 vehicles and 1 robot, it only makes sense to try to build a transformer with it, although this was easier said than done. It all comes down to making compromises, so that both robot and alternate mode turn out decent. Sure both parts are perhaps not up to my usual standards, but I think I managed pretty well to find the right balance between the 2 models.
Here's the autobot mode. It doesn't look as clean as some of my other models, but it was really hard to achieve this, considering the limited parts and transformation.
The back is really wide. The model is a little inspired by the off-road racing vehicles that participate in Paris-Dakar.
The front perspective is probably the bit that I like least.
An overview from the rear. I tried to hide the hinges as best as I could for the robot mode.
"Hi, here I am! My name is Toxic."
He has hands but without proper fingers. He lost those when he got toxic waste over him. That's how he got his name.
And a shot from the rear. Here you can see the big defense shield, because the back is always the weakest.

The balance in detail between car and robot is great. And while I first thought this would be hard to reverse engineer, When I sat down to do so today I was surprised to find it wasn't all that hard to reverse engineer. Mainly because of the transformation photo's a lot of the internal structure was visible in the photos while with your other creator alternates I almost always have to guess them. Thank you for (Again) providing a great way to spend an afternoon.
Great job. I was wondering if you would try a transformer after seeing your first alternative from this set. Love the rear end of the car and the robot looks great too. He looks like he has a back pack on ;) - maybe he is a travelling transformer. Shame he lost his fingers in the toxic accident. ;)
