    This is a WIP. Misfire was my last TF I bought when I was a kid. Always had a softspot for the guy even though he was one step from a shell former and an ugly pink-purple color. So I've given him a sexchange to go along with the update and present:

    And I'm not sure what to do with the wings:

    I'm thinking of making the cockpit black. I'm not sure if I like the blue. I'm also going to try and bash an Aimless as well, but that is proving to be very difficult.

    That's looking good. I'd say the wings look better on the back - but maybe you could incorporate them more like "arm shields" kinda like Classics Prime or Bumblebee?

    Wow... that works really well! Nice innovation! The vehicle mode really evokes Misfire, which is surprising because he's hardly a memorable character. :) 

    I have a spare Override myself... I think I might do something similar. The spaceship conversion is a great idea!

    Well, the legs're definitely curvy enough for a fembot, but because of the masculine jawline, wide-set shoulders and angular chest area...

    I like the wings on the back, but it's up to you. Was it hard to remove the wheels?

    I thinned out Override's nose and I did thin out the jaw and checks. I completely agree with the whole barrel chest thing. Override isn't going to win any beauty contests.

    Removing the wheels was easy (soldering iron) but covering them up was difficult. I should have sanded down the areas covering the front wheel wells more.

    Yeah. That mold is pretty masculine looking. Especially with those broad shoulders, and narrow hips. I've always cnsidered Override to be gender confused.

    The kitbash looks good. But again, nothing about it says fembot to me.

    I never thought of Misfire using this mold, but it really works well! The colors are horrible, but thats not your fault, lol! Great job and great choice of a character.
