Railrazor is a me eer fanmade character from Transformers Cartoon series. He transform into a bullet train and a Cybertronian space shuttle.
About this creation
Railrazor (not related tothis
guy) is a twin brother toAstrotrain. It
was known that both of them signed up forShockwave'striple
changer experiment to enhance their abilities in battle. However, sensing his
benevolent spark slowly eroded by this experiment, he escaped Shockwave's lab
but failed to save Astrotrain from the same fate , as his escape was quickly
discovered by Shockwave. He lived as a fugitive ever since in the depths of
Cybertron (and sometimes flew above radar detection as a space shuttle (with
stealth mode activated).
This project /Transformer remained nameless for 2 months before I
decided on "Railrazor".
It's my habit to build the robot head last, so I was worried how I can
cram in the head with my current design. Thanks to google I discovered
The weaponized train mode for the middle segment was incidental. There
were some hollowed space inside the train. While not cram in a few weapons
inside to be flipped out, I'd thought. :)
The final color scheme was undecided until I referred to my available
hinged bricks.I have much more blue and black of these hinged bricks
compared to other color.
I blew 2 balljoint socket bricks from constant test-transforming him
between modes. RIP dear bricks.
The wheels used here are "faux" train wheels made from 2x2 round plates
with axle hole. They're not compatible with LEGO train tracks obviously.
