    Okay, if you're like me, you don't like Vehicons very much. Something about their designs and their unconventional approach to humanoid forms kind of bugs me.

    Maybe you love Vehicons. Whatever... either way. :) 

    However, I always sort of liked the altmodes for Obsidian and... er... whatever Nightcruz was called before he was repainted, but due to their awkward limbs, I could never really get into them. The other day, I was messing with a spare Energon Treadshot I had, and some ideas came up...

    Obsidian... with real legs! It's not really a traditional Obsidian... no longer a helicopter, but something more akin to the Dropship from ALIENS. I like his stocky barrel-chested robot mode, though of course the colours really don't match at the moment.

    And here's Nightcruz... with a more involved mod (though still pretty simple). It was pure serendipity that Treadshot's colours match Nightcruz's pretty much exactly! Yay! Real arms! And ostentatious oversized superfluous anime-style shoulder pods! :)

    Wasn't Mirage the car? I can't remember what this Jet guy was called either. :) 

    The arms are still a bit big on that figure, but compared to the previous arms (if you could call them that), I have to see it as an enormous improvement. :)

    Holy crap, Obsidian looks awesome. He even has working vehicle modes. That's totally sweet. I need a spare Obsidian to do this to.
