MOTTO: "If it goes bang, I've probably got one in stock"
DESCRIPTION: Loadout is an arms dealer, a fact that has not escaped the attention of his superiors, since many of the weapons he possesses were stolen from arms depots throughout Decepticon held territory. When anyone needs a weapon for a specific mission, you can normally find it somewhere in Loadout's private stash. Sadly he seldom "gives" his collection away, and acquiring a weapon from him can be expensive. Greedy, selfish and spiteful, Loadout has been known to demonstrate his "toys" on clients who refused to pay, just to prove they work.
I've credited Pick, because the transformation is directly inspired by his design, however the alt mode and robot mode have some heavy Andros influences.
The vehicle form is meant to be a cybertronian tanker/cargo transporter.
I'm fairly happy with the results, the "wings" are a tad oversized giving hit a shellformer transformation. Plus the double cockpit feels like a fudge. I'm happy with the colour scheme, puts me in mind of Octane.
Despite giving him hands, I went with the weapon (initially) being arm mounted (similar to G1 Megatron) but I've sort of corrected this in the version 2 images (though I have to admit I'm inclined to think the version 1 vehicle mode looked better).
I've been working on another figure using a similar transformation, but a less cybertronian vehicle form, but I'm hitting some technical snags and have scrapped it twice.
