    Just picked up Skyhammer with the intention of repainting him into Vortex.I stood him next to Onslaught and it works(atleast in my head)I haven't seen anyone do this yet,Does it sound like it would work?

    Yeah,the head did throw me off.I'll have to check if my son to see if he has any scrap bots laying around. I'm thinking it would take a combo of heads to find a good match.

    I'm working on a Classics-styled Springer with my DOTM Skyhammer, but I can see a nice Vortex in this. I say go for it and be sure to share it up. As for my Vortex, I'm using HFTD Tomahawk with some scratchbuilding/modding to the legs. Both of mine are in various WIP stages.

    Dumb question:How do you get his blade off? The pic shows it popping/pulling out and i'm trying.All i see is a pin that doesn't look like its supposed to come out?

    it doesn't come off, the instructions is fucked up on that part, but everything else is correct. I transform mine without pulling the blades out. Watch Peaugh's reviews for reference. :)

    Ditto. Literally word for word is what I've got going.

    However my WIP stages are "not bought yet" for Skyhammer and "not started yet" for Vortex.

    When I first saw this toy, I tried to visualize Springer, but couldn't. Can you post some WIPs?

    I promise not to steal your ideas.

    I'll post some WIP shots in the next day or two. With a little modding, a new head, and paint, I think it will work for a Classics-style "updated" Springer.
