    This is Banzai-Tron made from a SWTF Magnaguard. The head is from a Starscream Fast Action Battler. I came up with this idea because Banzai-Tron lacked any kind of alt. mode kibble due to being an Action Master, and the Magnaguard figure allowed for one to transform without having much kibble. So, yeah.

    Banzai-tron is cool! I have a Magna guard custom too, in the works, but i had to sand it down a lot to avoid scratching; that mold is a magnet for paint rubbing issues.

    And i'm also in the 'Rotf Lockd....wait...Magna Guard???!!!' camp.

    Nice job! I like the color scheme.

    I think this mold would make an interesting Ferak.

    Thanks everyone. I have to wonder how some of you were thinking RotF Lockdown at first, to me the two are pretty different.

    I have a question, now did you have other types of heads in your disposal for making Banzai-Tron or that fast action battler Starscream was a perfect fit? But if there's no reason then its cool. I guess at first I wasn't okay with the head choice on the body because it made it look odd, but now I guess it grown on me in a way that this makes it feel like this is Banzai-Tron. So thats all.

    The FAB Starscream head was the only one out of my small collection of extra heads that seemed to work, so that's why I chose it.
