    As some of you may remember, Blastoff has been by problem child. I didn't want to use Astrotrain but I could never find a suitable figure. Then one day I was looking through the resources here on another project and came across Cyb. Sky Shadow. It was perfect for what I was looking for in Blastoff. Nice size, cool flight mode, extra boosters (blastoff), and with a slight head mode and some purple accent color, bingo I had my Blastoff. (remember I don't go for combining yet). So what do y'all think?

    The last picture I entitle "Hot Spot do you know where your soliders are?" (During my photo shoot of Blades, First Aid's head came off. So I couldn't resist.) :D

    "Admiral! There be whales here!" I think it came out pretty cool. If Onslaught gets an update, why not Blastoff. Never understood why they had a shuttle on the team. Not exactly military. Works well. But what are they doing on a Bird of Prey?

    Not bad... he fits Blast-off nicely, though I think you could take this one more degree of Kitbashing, and alter that jet mode to be more shuttle-like. Basically just a matter of re-arranging the wings, and modding the tail.

    I realize that makes it sound easier than it is, but turning this jet into a shuttle could be a major coup. :)

    That is too funny. I thought that seeing whales through a window was nice touch for the Decepticon underwater base.

    I actually did Brawl a year or so ago and am currently working on Swindle with Vortex in the wings waiting.

    Thanks, I figured might as well throw it in there for fun.
