    heres another version of Blitzwing.

    I usually make this with the seeker figures chest up front in bot mode. but in this version i decided to use the back (top of the jet) as the front of the robot.

    I also made the cockpit/nose of the jet mode short, much like that of the original MIG 25.

    Used a different head for this instead of just adding a visor to the seeker head.

    I like this custom. The Robot and Tank modes look good. I think the jet mode just has way too much crap hanging off it. Still very clever to turn this into a triple changer. Well done.

    Nice! Good call on the head... I'm using exactly the same one. It's a pretty much perfect Blitzwing match, in terms of design, colours and personality. :) 

    My one misgiving about this is the turret. Honestly, I think you could go with a much smaller one... it looks huge in all 3 modes.

    Really not feeling this at all. Every mode suffers from some massive kibble issues and none of them seem coherent or complete in anyway. All I really see is a mess of parts. The paint looks great though.

    Looks nice man. Maybe some bigger wings in jet mode might hide the tank trends a little better.

    Nice take. It's really hard to figure out how to get that much hardware into one bot.

    I always respect the Blitzwing customs. He is bar none, the most difficult figure to make

    im still looking for alternative parts to use for the treads/wings part. I also would prefer if the treads were totally hidden in jet mode.

    as for the tank cannon, im thinking about using the deluxe galvatrons cannon.... we'll see how it truns out.

    thanks for the input.

    I really like everything you've done. As others have said, it's really challenging to pack this much figure into the deluxe size class. I think you pulled off the "G1 look" very well with this :thumb
