    This was a total kitbash for a Sector 70 Triplechanger contest. I used parts that were left over from my various Shockwave and Soundwave customs to make Blitzwing. I used Universe Treadbolt, Dropshot, and Blaster. I gave the figure a Krylon flat black base coat, then used Testors Acrylic steel and aluminum dry brushing and purple and brass, with some copper, red, and yellow highlights.

    How in the world did you get such distinct alt modes?! That, my friend, is impressive.

    Looking at the thumbnail on the forum page, I wasn't too impressed. But holy crap, those alt-modes are amazingly good. Kudos for proving me wrong completely. Can't wait to see the video!

    The kitbashing on this is so fantastic. You really pulled off that triple-changing feature quite well :thumb 

    I do have to say that the paint scheme feels like it should be quite a bit more unified though. I would really love to see another made with a flat, military camo scheme. That head really sticks out as the color doesn't fit with the rest as well.

    All that said, I can certainly appreciate that you went in a different direction with your color palette. Again, you've done some stellar work here :thumb
