    UPDATE!!! lol, i figured out what i wanted to do with the head for the combined mode, now it's articulated and there is no fear of it falling off anymore. also he's currently getting the paint redone, since i have gotten better at painting since i did this one

    well, i figured out the feet, and they are fully transformable other than the heads (for now) took me a good chunk of the day to get them sanded down and fit, so it's not as minor of a mod as i was going for

    regular modes with comparisons to the originals

    the inner workings of the leg, the little ball joint cup was the forearm of speed dial, it took a while today to get everything to fit inside those legs

    Wow, brr-icy the leg assembly that you did for Squawkbox worked out great. I got nothing else to say about it. (clapping hands together in applause) You deserve it.

    I like the clean paintjob.

    Is the head completely built from scratch, or did you take it from another toy?

    G1 sandstorm, i compared them side by side and it was pretty close to an upsized version of squawkbox's head, so i went with it

    These really look great man. I really like how you ended up making their combined mode. I looked at him earlier in your WIP phase and wasn't sure how much I liked the Squawkbox's wingtips as feet. This is much better. you've got great colors and add clever mods. These guys are definitely customs to be proud of.
