    Buhawi and Amihan (targetmaster)

    Buhawi is my real first name. it means tornado. skyhammer was an obvious choice

    Amihan is my daughter's name. it means soft cool breeze (from the northern monsoon.

    this was inspired by multiple self-portrait customs. i've always wanted to add myself into my classics collection. LOL.

    changes made:

    - painted black mat
    - clear coated with satin finish
    - added new head which can still look up.
    - just added a targetmaster. didn't bother to paint it since it goes well with buhawi
    - added more projectiles


    anyway, i hope you enjoy it.

    Guys, they are all deluxe figures and this is a voyager, my best guess would be that it's from Alternator Skids.

    Nice job on the paints and head, makes me consider picking this guy up. the alt mode reminds me of Tomahawk.

    thanks peeps. much appreciated. almost forgot, it was an alt skids i had lying around for years. lol

    don't miss out on skyhammer. he is awesome! i'm thinking about picking maybe two more actually. maybe i'll have better luck in vancouver this weekend. LOL

    i was disappointed. he couldn't look down. i made tiny changes to the neck.

    Did you have to do any mods for the head to actually fit properly in alt mode?

    And that's definitely an Alt Skids head.

    initially, i went the lazy way. i took skids head, the front part, and put the back part of skyhammer. lol it works perfectly BUT he can't look down.

    so these are the changes i made.

    - open up the skids head.
    - take the back part.
    - cut the protruding U shape part that holds the ball joint. make it flush. you need to raise skids head just a tad bit so the shoulders can transform properly.
    - cut the U shape in two. keep the the U shape since that holds the ball joint. this is necessary since i it needs to be flush during transformation. you can also carve out the parts that is in the cockpit.
    - then glue one of those on the bottom of the head. it will become his neck.

    he can look up and down, rotate etc.

    Excellent choice on the targetmaster as well, but if you're wanting to make him a little different from Nightstick, you could always leach parts off of those core combiner guys to give him kibble or something.
