    subscribed. Can they get printed in a material where all those lines don't show up?

    Excellent. Like the variety in not just using one mold and calling it a day.

    SUPER Clever with the tilting cone section to fit the head man. These all look great!

    Brilliant! Absolutely brilliant! Seeing these makes me wonder why we never got an official release of those character/mold combos. They seem so obvious.

    So a King Starcream out of the Cyclonus/Galvatronus figure is more than likely... (or one waits for PotP Screamer) Thundercracker and Skywarp had Legends figures made... so who would be the 4th limb?

    Great work !

    But I think I would need a special pin pusher tool for those wing sets.

    Awesome work! It's such a simple conversion but it works so well. I have your Seeker wings, missiles and Starscream head coming in the post, incidentally.

    I know you have to slice off the vertical fins to get the parts on but the grooves look a bit empty as is, perhaps some glue-on filler parts are in order?

    Also, will the Thrust and Ramjet parts work on the SKydive mold?

    Thanks. You can cut off the soft vertical fins first, then you can slide the pins out using needlenose pliers. I had to use soldering iron to heat the pin because they are stuck too tight.

    Hi thanks. No Thrust and Ramjet parts will not work on Skydive without some redesign as the connectors are all different. I also think bot fit the Air Raid mold better than Skydive.
