    My second masterforce pretender update....Diver/Waverider!

    Simply a movie storm surge scout with all the blue repainted black using Citadel 'Chaos Black', with all the detailing and the turbines painted with revell paints gold.

    The paint needs a little tidying here and there, but here are the pics of an otherwised pretty much finished project!

    2 autobot pretenders down, 2 to go! :D

    Cool, I'm a fan of Masterforce myself and I like what you're doing.
    I'm curious for the next in line which would be Phoenix/Cloudburst, and I guess you'll be using energon Skyblast for him? (seeing that you're using scout class figures and that's the only plane that comes to mind).

    Post a group pic when all 3 are done :) 

    Are you going to make Metalhawk too?

    Intially I was going to use an energon Windrazor (provided I could find a decently priced one) for Cloudburst, but now that you mention Skyblast I'm looking at pictures of him and thinking he'll be alot better suited, since his vehicle mode looks alot better (and he'll be cheaper to get hopefully!). Thanks for the inspiration!! :thumb 

    As for Metalhawk, I WANT to do him, but I'm really not sure what mold to use while keeping in it scout sized. I guess if I do Cloudburst with Skyblast the possiblility of using the Windrazor/Treadshot mold has opened up.

    Awesome, I can't wait to see you do Metalhawk. Also, any plans to do the Gilmer, Blood or Darous at some point in time?

    Eventually, I'm struggling to come up with mold choices for those though. Especially Gilmer, I can't think of many more boat/sub formers.

    Laserbeak: Eject. Operation:Suggestions

    Gilmer/Submaruader(Boat-thing):
    Energon Mirage
    Energon Sharkticon(Works the best IMO b/c his shell was a shark-thing)

    Blood/Bomb-Bust(VTOL/Jet-thing):
    Energon Slugslinger
    Classics Seeker Mold w/Botcon or Henkei Thrust Wings(this is an expensive option unless you're up to casting some wings/getting them casted)
    Energon Skyblast

    Dauros/Skullgrin(Tank-thing):
    Armada Demolishor
    Beast Machines Strika
    Energon Kickback/Blight(Bruticus tank leg)

    Thanks for the suggestions. I just looked them up and I'd never seen energon Slugslinger before....he really does look like he'd make a good Blood. Hopefully when the time comes I'll be able to find one and go down that route.

    I'm not very familar with energon size classes. The tfwiki says Slugslinger and Sharkticon are combat class, is that deluxish size?

    As a fellow fan of Masterforce, I like this update of Diver. I'm doing an Animated version of Masterforce, do you mind if I use your customs as reference?

    Comabt=Deluxe, and for the other Energon guys I suggested:
    Energon Class=Scout/Basic
    Mega=Voyager

    Skyblast as Phoenix/Cloudburst and Windrazor/Treadshot as Metalhawk sound good. I'd say go for it :thumb

    That's a splendid job there.

    Looking forward to seeing some more Masterforce customs.

    Ahh the "Similar Threads" box is great!

    Great to see some more Masterforce love. I don't think this one matches *visually* quite as well as Phoenix, but the concept is perfect!
