    This one is my first kitbash ever, I was so pissed when Hasbro came out with him as a voyager I had to do it. He does not transform at all but retained all of his flexibility. I used leader class Megs as the base, voyager class Blackout for helicopter parts, some bitx left over from a leader Brawl(the shoulder cannons), deluxe class Scorponok( for the intake and gears on rotors), an Iron man figure (warmachine I think) for the arms, and a revell Apache helicopter for even more parts. I almost gave up on this one so many times, it just looked so horrible during the build stage. I was worried till I primed him a Valspar flat black. Citadel acrylics were used for the paint. I want to re-do this guys head at one point, but thats for later. Someday I would love to hydro-span the voyager class figure of him or at least the head to get it more accurate. Its definetly not exact but I tried to keep the spirit of Blackout in there.

    Wow, that's really smart, an original take on this for sure. The head looks pretty good too, no need to be that down on it.

    He could use some more metallics to break up all that blue in the legs and such though I think, gun metals and little bits of dirty chrome here and there.

    Otherwise, really nice.

    Killer work.

    The design and proprtions are all great but it'd be nice to see the blue washed out a lil more. JMO an whatnot.

    That's cool, gives a much better sense of his actual Movie design than the toy was capable of. Good work sir.

    Yay! A Blackout that's actually poseable and more like its movie counterpart.

    Its actually a really chopped up Megatron head most of it was sculpted on with green stuff. I do apologize to you guys about the rotations, its letting me save them on my cpu as rotated but when I import them it flips them sideways again.
