G1 Transformer Beachcomber (mini figure scale / transformable)
Here is my G1 mini-bot Transformer - Beachcomber at minifig scale and it is fully transformable.
About this creation
Beachcomber has a hard time reconciling his love of peace and freedom for all creatures with the need to combat those who threaten it (from tfwiki.net). Anyone who wants to know more about this character, please click at the link below.
Beachcomber wiki

This time I find a nice little sexy figure as a model to put at the front, hope to get more attention.



As a one of the mini-bot character of Generation 1 Autobot ally, I tried to manage the size into quite a small scale (the smallest figure under robot mode so far from my transformer creations) in order to match with what mini-bot means.

The vehicle front has a pair of head light. I used a number of small matalic silver round plate to creat the radiator stuff. I also made some sort of suspension/shock absober stuff connected with the front wheels.



Engine is located at the back. However, only 1 seat is available although the original design has got a pair of it. If I make it into 2 of it, the standard black frame would not be appropriated to use (cannot provide full protection to the passengers during accident).





Start to transform!



Beachcomber involves only simple transformation. The designing process is fairly easy to handle for this one compared with my previous transformer creations.



First of all, to flip out the legs.



Then to twist the heel around. It is not be able to stand without the heels. These can be adjusted into different angle to get it balance for different pose.



Transformation completed!



See how the heel is works.



Most of the human articulations are there so it is quite poseable.





Thank you for watching!

Another really good Legoformer - I'm impressed with how much detail you've worked in at this scale, much better than my Beachcomber! Perfect choice of minifigs too.

after seening many of your works, I've to say to fellow admirees, please do NOT ask for instructions, yet, if Alex want to share his works by giving out instructions, fine, as a matter of fact, great! for all of us. But asking, even begging is not nice, coz it gives presure on author. Alex seems to be a very nice fella but it is not nice to take advantage of such a nice people. Anyways, great job here again. I love all your works! Please keep doing it. By the way, is it possible to put up a donation page for buying bricks, since many of your creastions require rare pieces. You have put shame on Hasbro and they should hire you!

Who would ask for more from a single toy? You have a robot, a buggy and Lego bricks.

WOW! For a moment there I thought you might have switched the actual figure in for the robot views but, no. Amazing job! It's great to see people doing the original mini Autobot line. With the exception of Bumblebee, those guys don't really get enough press time.

Quoting Dev Mistry Instructions please!!!!!?????
Hi, Dev. I think it is quite simple in structure. The only thing you might have difficulty to follow is the robot torso, but it can be bulit in many different way. Just have a try and see if you can handle it, cos I don't have an idea do the LDD yet.

Quoting Peter deYeule I had him when I was a kid. A very cool small figure but yours is better than the original. More articulations, more details. Beachcomber was on my to-do list, but after seeing your creation, I think I'm going to pass on it. Yours is just too great. *****
Thanks Peter. Just keep in doing yours. Everyone has his or her own style of MOC. I am expected to see your own style one.

Quoting andros tempest interesting that you should mention lengthening the thigh to sort out the heel issue, because the original toy had a shorter calf and longer thigh. Your design is probably closer to actual human dimensions.
Thanks Andros. Yeah, to get the shape balance under both mode is always my primary objective on my design process. In fact, I always prefer the robot mode carry the actual human dimension. That's the reason I like the traditional transformer more than the recent movie version character.

Quoting Stuart Lucas Nice work! Beachcomber was one of the first transformers I attempted (and definitely not my best) - I remember having trouble with balance because the feet lacked heels, I like your solution. You're inspiring me to get back into building transformers...
Thanks Stuart. It is always challenging in building Legoformer. For the heel problem on beachcomber, if you find difficult to manage the heel transformation like mine, another way you can try is to make the thigh longer. So that the thigh is longer than the lower leg hence there will be enough room to store the whole heel in there under vehicle mode. But that way will create a result which is longer the vehicle length. Not sure if my explaination is confusing.

Thanks Paulo. I am having a mini-bot - Huffer (a little truck) finishing. Next, should be a large scale Machine Robo - Bluejet, which is about half done. Then could be Starscream, Optimus trailer, and Inferno.

Beachcomber was the first Transformers I ever bought, so I'm very familiar with the original mini-bot design. And you've captured it perfectly here. I love the fact that you've retained most of the original elements, while actually making it MORE articulate. For the scale, this is practically perfect. Shame Hasbro can't do something like this.
