    Your progress thus far looks great! The use of the Neo Shifters joints on the stabilizer wings is very interesting, and it looks like it works very well. Do you plan to make them less conspicuous looking at all?

    I noticed the Neo Shifter connector embedded in the chest, so I have to assume that you are planning the rest of the Combaticons... if the rest of them look as promising as Vortex here, color me astounded! :) 

    The model kit you're using is also a very good call. I myself am kitbashing two or three Rotorstorms together, and that figure looks nearly identical to your model kit.

    Keep up the great work!

    That's a really good idea. Once he's painted, he'll look great! If you crammed this much awesome into just one bot, I'm almost scared to see the other four.

    That is looking lovely. I'm digging how the copter blades fold into a sword. That's so Springer like. Looking forward to seeing your combiner complete.
