...and to think, this one started because someone called someone else a TruckMonkey...|
Allegiance: Darned if we know

Notes: This thing came to fruitation after a friend of mine in a mailing list called another friend a TruckMonkey. This insult was referring to a post way back in the day on ATT that had a rather bad speller trying to state the muddled thought: 'trukk not monkee'. It's become a bit of the TF culture. This is my little way of remembering it...by combining the two characters. Now, literally, the truck IS the monkey...imagine the bombasity.|
The unit DOES transform, incidentally. Just not very well. Robot mode is nice, ape mode is passable (the monkey face on his back will flip up, and you can sort of scrunch him)...but the truck mode is just awful. I took the wheel pieces off. They looked too-clunky on his legs. He's built from the gutted body of Primal, and the head, windows, and front grill of Prime. Initially, he had wheels glued to his legs and hips. (Yes, I will add more pictures, if you REALLY want me to.) :-)
His entire tech spec is written with a specific humor in-mind. Hopefully, most of the in-jokes will be obvious. :-)
Until all are one. Hehe.
