    Hello team, it's me once again with another custom for our enjoyment.

    This is Bluestreak. He started as one of those cheap MARS Converters. I disassembled him, and moved the door mounts to the back of the hood via a custom hinge so that they would fold out as such in 'bot mode. The head came from another horrible KO ROTF Ratchet I found at KMart last Christmas. I dremeled down the head, added a ball joint to it, and made his "horns" from styrene. The hands came from a ROTF Gears and were also ball jointed to fit the existing arms.

    I know there's some painting details I still have yet to address, and I have some shoulder cannons in the works...just trying to figure out the best way to attach them.

    Comments and critique welcome!

    Thanks for looking!

    Jeff

    super slick. i love these figures. really good modding, re-locating the doors and head sculpt. is this meant to be the diaclone version of bluestreak? any plans for smokescreen and prowl?

    Thanks! I have to say, your most recent figure (Scorponok) is friggin amazing!!!
    I don't have any plans yet to do the rest of the Datsun boys, but I should mention to all enterprising Radicons out there, this MARS figure is essentially very close to the same style of transformation that the Classics Sunstreaker/Sideswipe follows...and then is do-able as your average Bluestreak/Prowl/Smokescreen with modding the doors...so basically any character that can be made from any of those molds can be made from this one. There was talk of a Punch/Counterpuch using this toy as the base...

    Wow Steelie. That gentle use of silver really plays nicely with the light there. And the blue on his hands is superb, love the subtle metallic. And the head! Head-on bro head-on.

    Did you paint the front windshield? How did you do it wow. That paint looks super smoove.

    Good stuff! I have one of these MARS Converters also... not a bad mold at all, for a cheap imitation Transformer, but you've really taken it to another level. Looks great with the wings on the back!

    Also nice to see Bluestreak get some love. :)

    Thanks! The windshield is the only thing I didn't paint! LOL That's why it looks so "factory smoooooth".

    Me too!!! Who do we have to kill to get a decent Bluestreak with some blue on him!

    Thanks!

    Thank you!
    I don't know about it suiting WC 10,000x better...his alt mode definately favors WC, but someone has already done that here...

    Shinobitron's WC is a real masterpiece work.

    I wanted to be original on this project.

    Yes, thanks! This mold has alot of potential, and is very easy to work with!

    Thanks again everyone for your kind words!
