    Combaticon 3: Vortex

    Well, I don't have a lot of love for this mold, but he turned out MUCH better than I expected. I used the head of Cybertron Buzzsaw, which is the same mold as the Armada Cyclonus, for nice updated look.

    I did number decal him, but Stupid me, I decaled him where the rear merges with the front...so you can't see it. It Is THERE!!! :lol

    Interesting mold, I'm not sure if I've seen it before.
    It sure is one you can't really forget.
    I do love the look you got with the (I'll guess it's) silver paint.

    Nice. The mold is different, but meh I guess thats what you wanted to fit with the other Combaticons and it worked out great.

    I think it'd look better without the propellers.

    Love the color lay out man....not a fan of the mold, but that ain't your fault.

    The custom work itself looks cool :)

    I never realized this mold had such a cool looking head sculpt. I'm sure the nice paint app has lots to do with it though!

    I loathe this mold, but you make it work well. In fact, this is probably my favorite treatment of this mold. Ever.

    Great work :thumb
