Master Chief/Warthog Transformer (Halo)

Master Chief/Warthog Transformer by James Bowen:
Up for auction is the second incarnation of the Master Chief Transformer I made a few months back. This time, I managed to find an undamaged Actionclix Warthog, so I was able to use the whole body of the vehicle with a bit of adjusting. The windshield is also clear this time, and folds into the back section when transformed (more pictures detailing the back sides and transformation will be uploaded later). Includes a Spike Grenade, Sniper Rifle, Chaingun turret, Custom stand, and Display box.

The figure itself stands 6" tall. It is made mostly of an Actionclix Warthog, McFarlane Master Chief, and Transformers Universe Hound. The three base figures can be seen in one of the pictures posted for those who wish to try and make their own. When in vehicle mode, the wheels turn and the turret can rotate. While in Chief mode, it has good articulation for its size with ball joints in the neck, shoulders, and hips with pin joints being in the wrists, elbows, waist (up & down), knees, and ankles. Bicep and calf swivels are present as well Paint is applied with Testors Model Master over three coats of black automotive primer with a matte clear coat, and does not chip due to moving or transforming. Paneling was done with a dark grey Gundam Marker. Custom decals were made for the figure, and may be applied if the buyer wishes. Decals consist of the USMC logos and the Halo 3 logo with the Autobot symbol in the center.

The Stand is a Gundam Action Base painted in the same colors as the Warthog and has custom printed decals applied. Arm can be adju5sted and repositioned to accommodate many poses. The Display box is clear plastic with a printed background scene.

Also included is one unassembled papercraft model of the Warthog.
