After building my Optimus Prime LEGO model, I wanted to try another G1 character. Beachcomber might not be an obvious choice, but I always liked the character plus I had some good ideas for the dune buggy mode.

I tried to stay as close to the prototype as possible in both modes. The transformation is nearly identical to the original toy, with only a couple of extra steps along the way. Beachcomber moves at the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, fingers, hips, knees, and toes. His construction is surprisingly sturdy, and shows no signs of trying to come apart.

If I can get a set of instructions online, I will post them here.
