Custom of the Week: Generation 1 Runabout and Runamuck by frenzy_rumble

Transformers Garage is on the look out for the best custom / kitbash to feature each week here and in the Transformers Garage Hall of Fame section. This week's featured custom is Generation 1 Runabout and Runamuck by frenzy_rumble.

"Ever since I saw the [Transformers Classics Bumblebee] mold, I thought 'classic G1 Runabout (Black) and Runabout (White)," he tells us.

"2 of my favorites as a kid, these battlecharger twins were on my list of 'has to get done one day' and [are] finally off that list. "These guys were pretty much a straight repaint, however I did some work to them; added some articulated hands, custom heads (cast G1 Trailbreaker) and removed the tow hitch on their back. The head was a nightmare getting it trimmed to fit in alt mode."

"The paint on Runamuck is a pearl/iridescent white, and Runabout is a metallic flake black which is also iridescent (in certain angles it's green, red, or blue)."

Take a look at the full gallery in the customs and kitbashes gallery.

Very nice work!

Was the head for Universe Runamuck too big?

That said, I can't see the duo as mere hatchbacks, however "sporty" they appear to be. I see them as pure sports cars.
