    So since Banzai-Tron was my favorite Action Master as a kid and he and Razorclaw never really had alt modes I figured I would make up for that! Razorclaw now has a bot mode, a scimitar mode and a big ass Tekko-Kagi (ninja claw mode). The both combine to form a formidable looking battle cruiser. I designed that after the Scimitar from Start Trek Nemesis. Razorclaw is a mistransformed Blackarachnia with a new headsculpt and other random parts while Banzai-Tron is made from the Voyager Animated Megs with a new headsculpt and a few Bionicle weapons to finish him off. This set will be on ebay soon, so be on the lookout! Enjoy the full gallery here:

    Looking the upper torso of TFA Megatron it looks like inspired in Banzai-tron general shape. And you make a great use of this similarity. Great custom! And amazing job doing the combined mode.

    Awww man that's sick! I love the colors and that combined alt mode is just awesome :D 
    My only complaint is that you didn't use the original head idea :(

    Awesome use of the voyager megs mold! Very creative!

    Razorsharp's a big skinny in botmode would be only complaint. Otherwise a triumph! :D

    Thanks Jigs!

    Modesty prevents me from agreeing!

    Thanks a lot dude. I was worried that the color scheme would have been too much coming from a toy that originated in the early 90's but I think it fits in nicely.

    That's exactly why I chose the mold, it was like they used BT for inspiration. Glad you guys dig the combined mode too.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Yeah, I never finished the head from the original thread and it was just sculpy so it didn't hold up over 4 years.

    Much appreciated guys!

    Thanks man. That's actually the way Blackarachnia was designed. I was thinking of filling in that section but I decided, RS would be female and it's from the Animated aesthetic which is cartoony and exaggerated so I may as well go with it.

    :)
