    Custom Transformers/CHUG SUPERION

    This started out as just Silverbolt, playing around waiting for parts, was just messing around. But as I'm still waiting for parts for my Defensor it's sorta turning into the whole team.
    I know alot of you don't like the look I'm going for. Silverbolt does kinda suck.

    In my head it sorta went down like this:

    While tied up in the Universe Conflict, Optimus Primal became aware that one of the Special Teams would really benefit him in his battles against the spawn of Unicron.
    After searching long and careful deliberation (being Optimus Primal) it was decided that the Airialbots should be brought into the conflict. But not until the received certain upgrades.

    Please, give me some feedback. There's something here I just am not liking. What do I need to do to this guy?

    The proportions are wonky with this one.

    G1/G2 siilverbolt is more or less an ultra scale, so deluxe limbs won't really work, proportion wise. maybe a universe ultra powerglide or silverbolt would work well with the project,

    Really neat concept and actually not too far off. Just needs tweaks with the limbs, is all! Other than that it's really fun, Good luck!

    It's a decent custom, but I'm wondering why you didn't start off with the Universe Silverbolt and just re-shell him into a Concorde?

    Really wanting to go with Energon combiner scale. Love me sum Energon.

    My dream is to do the entire G1 cast in Scout Class figures. Except ones that obviously need Deluxe.

    Update: I've decided if I can cut away about an inch out of the body he'll come out just right. ANY ADVICE ON HOW TO DO THAT WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED

    That would probably solve problem with disproportion. If you ask me,I'd remove the portion between green crotch piece and red chest piece.Maybe that will do. :)

    It doesn't really work very well in my eyes.

    You might consider Thunderwing as a base. He has a easy transformation, similar in many ways to a G1 aerialbot limb, which would allow for a lot of part swapping without messing with the transformation mechanics.

    Took these off of here in favor of better ones. But, decided to put them back on to show differences in how he's coming along.

    I think the problem here is that G1 Silverbolt ALWAYS had wonky proportions, and there isn't much you can do with that mold that isn't going to look like "a bunch of robot parts wadded up and shoved under a Concorde."

    Hooper, you're absolutely right. And yet still hate Stormjet. Thanks for the critiques everyone. If nothing else, I'll end up with somethin nobody else has done. After all isnt that the name of the game?

    Sorry but the colors for Silverbolt just aren't working for me. The limnbs look pretty good. Slingshot is supposed to be one of his arms.

    Yeah i think im gonna go g2 colors on the next one. Also gonna hinge the wings on the limbs.
    Wanted to try this 'cuz a guy named SILVERbolt should probably be ya know, silver. At least once.

    Oh and I'll put picks up of the nominal limb placement when done. Tried to show scramble city compatability.
