    Digibash/Idea for TFA Inferno (Beast Wars)

    ... turning the new TFA Waspinator into his old buddy BW Inferno? What i will do is remove his wings (maybe some changes to where the wings attach) and change up his stinger into a more rounded ant butt. PLus make the colour skeem like the bellow pictures. Let me know what you think!

    NEW!!!! --- if you look at the back of the toy, it will have some spaces left where the wing mechanism will be removed... any ideas that will help me add something onto that, maybe a weapon, will be greatly apreciated!

    first digibash of the box art (with alt. colour crotch)

    I think Bees did evolve from ants, so it's not that insane an idea.

    Lose the wings, blunt the stinger some (but not too much, look at an ant's anatomy), and move the little arms from bot-mode to the alt-mode's head for the antennae. Then paint him red.

    Doesn't seem very hard at all. Very doable for your first custom. I say go for it.

    Hey not trying to be like i came up with that idea or what not,

    but just pointing out that I had started a thread months back about converting a TFA Waspinator figure into a TFA Animated Inferno. Some nice people on here also did a digibash of what it would like from the animated waspinator picture. Good luck on it and let me know if you guys do make an animated inferno.

    That's actually a pretty good idea! I was planning on customizing Waspinator into Buzzsaw (I know, original, right?:cool: ), but it never occured to me that he could easily make an Inferno as well. Of course, first things first, I have to find a Waspinator for myself.

    Good luck with your custom!

    the digibash on the later pages is kinda cool... the grey used for the face and crotch looks nicer than mine... i like the idea of the grin as well. as for the more BW accurate upper-arm colour, i don't think it suits a TFA character. TFA characters have a very simple skeem in most cases and i want to keep that... thanks for the link!
