    I've been tinkering on and off with this over-sized knock off Topspin for a few months now. I got him at a flea market. Instead of the twin nosecones he should have, he came with a funky, wide, single nosecone that flipped onto his back.
    As I'm sure you can tell, the arms and thighs came from a TFA Ratchet. I broke him ages ago, so I'm glad that his parts could go to a good use.
    I'm planning on squaring off his arms and legs, attaching his wings to his upper arms and giving him the guns on the back of his hands. Eventually I plan on giving him a real neck as well.
    All comments and crits are welcome.

    Thanks guys! I'd love to do a Twintwist, but the guy only had ones close to Topspin. I know that's sort of a cop out seeing as how similar they are, but I still only bought the one.
