Dust Slizer

So... I couldn't decide if I wanted to make a Slizer or a Roborider. So, I decided to make both. I present to you, the Dust Slizer (Throwbot mode).
Dust Slizer
And, when it needs to get somewhere fast, it can convert to Roborider mode.
Dust Slizer, RoboRider Mode
Story blurb: As the war on planet Slizer rages on, the Dust Slizer enters the fray. Using stolen Air and Rock disks, the Dust Slizer attacks with the force of a sandstorm behind its mighty throwing arm. When a disk just won't do the trick, the Dust Slizer can utilize its plasma blasters to bring the heat of the desert to the battle. To get somewhere fast, Dust can transform to its rugged RoboRider mode, a form perfect for traversing the desert sands or just plowing throw things in general. Here comes the Dust Storm!

So, this was heavily inspired by IGU's Slizer MOCs. I wanted to create a Slizer/Roborider mash up, so I made a Slizer that can covert to a beefed up Dust Roborider. I tired to incorporate little homages to the original toys from 1999 and 2000, such as the little bits of chrome, the three wheels, the spikes on the front, the foot design, and the moving back suspension. There also some nice compartments for storing disks in each mode.Dust Slizer, Roborider side

As far as transformation goes, no parts need to be removed, except for the visor, but that is just because I don't want to go hunting for another one. That's all for now! For more pictures, check out the album: https://flic.kr/s/aHskEPRHRC
I hope you liked this build. It was a lot of fun. I guess this guy is a ThroboRider... eh? Eh? EH?... Yeah, I'll be here all day...

This is great. Roboriders, while kinda weird, still had some neat sets.

Nice job! The Slizer mode has a great appearance, and something about the Roborider mode just works so well for a DUST Slizer; like something you'd ride in the desert.

Oh my God this is the best thing-

It's so animated in a way. The shaping and use of parts is cool. The 2 giant wheels on top add to the look.

Though yeah, alt-mode was giving me 'Tumbler' vibes :stuck_out_tongue:

Robot mode is nice, though feel lower legs and elbow's are a little bare - though that may be stylistic

This is ****ing amazing. The best MOC I've seen on the boards in quite a while. You and @LoganMcOwen want to make me make my own slizer MOC.

same. I'm half-tempted to rip off this formula with an Onyx or frost roborider.

that, or make Ski.

Amazing.
I love how it looks in both forms, the switch is seamless.

I wonder how it transforms so smoothly, nothing clunky or odd.

Better than 97% of my MOCs.

And I make pretty good MOCs, in my opinion.

This is absolute perfection. Also, apparently I'm not the only one who liked Dust enough to make a Moc inspired by him (http://board.ttvchannel.com/t/motor-centaur-dusty-v1-5/18795).

Man, I really want to build one of these now. If only my Amazon Throwbot were complete...

Also, it's a Transformer. I like Transformers. Plus, I see a little bit of every building system!
