    UPDATE ON PAGE 3: 8/12

    Here is the beginning of my first "posted" custom. Spent all day kitbashing the hell outta various bits (some you may recognize).

    This will be fully repainted and weathered in the next few days and hopefully you guys will like it.

    I approve! This is awesome, can't wait to see how it turns out. The legs on this figure ruin the whole toy for me. I'd love to see something that converts from weapons on the vehicle to leg kibble on the robot..

    Thanks, it does indeed still transform.

    I'm glad! It was initially a parts-former but you have given me a great idea, credit is due ^_^.

    I'm not entirely sure I'll be able to do a commish but we'll see ^_~

    oh yeah! first! :) 

    Thank you.

    Cant say, my life depends on it....lol j/k I used RtS Jazz's door speakers for the bulk, 2007 Voyager Starscreams rear vertical stabilizers for the panels that hide the larger speakers and finally two random bits for the cylinders.

    I'm nowhere near finished, I still have to add the three "tail light" bits to the addons.

    This looks very promising. Just a quick and friendly note: Aside from being skinny, the legs on this mold are also short. If you can, you might want to consider a way to make them long enough to be proportionate to his upper torso. I was planning on modifying his legs a while ago but didn't know where to start. I'm really looking forward to seeing how yours will turn out.

    I agree that it might look better if the legs were a bit longer. I just got the figure myself. I'll have to look and see what can be done.

    Right on :)  If this isn't something you do a lot, then you should be proud, dude. You've already made significant improvements to this toy with minimal modification, and everything already looks very clean at this point.
