    Okay so without the vac metal chrome I'm not sure I can really call it a "Transmetal" but just pretend it's there where the purple is. :lol 

    Anyways, here we have Transmetal 3 Tigerhawk! This is something I've wanted to see/make for some time now. When (sort of) Transmetal 3 Megatron was revealed for Botcon 2016 I was really hoping we'd see Tigerhawk as one of the souvenirs to act as his opponent during the comics. But that never came to be, so after about 2 weeks of work I brought it into existence myself.

    Tigerhawk here is made from the Beast Hunters Grimwing mold with Titans Return Titanmaster Nightbeat for the head. Removed Grimwing's head, shaved down the ball joint to fit Nightbeat and popped it right on. Not a perfect Tigerhawk head but the best one I have. I think it works out alright. Also did some shaving on the inside of the beast mode's neck to allow the head to fully clear during transformation, although it's still a pretty tight fit.

    Went with the show's use of purple instead of the toy's blue.

    P.S. I'm very envious of that Megatron lol

    Neat. The colors remind me of Buzz Lightyear.

    Wish you did, I'd love to see what you did for your version.

    Yeah I guess the colors are a bit Lightyear-ish aren't they? Should've made him a full blown Headmaster so the Titan Master could turn into Buzz Lightyear. XD
