    Heres a preview pic of my Cybertron mode Bombshell. I'll have full details and photoshoot later tonight after I get off of work. I still have some things to finish on him and at this point he is about 85% complete.

    Cool stuff, man. I'd love to see the robot mode and the completed project.

    What exactly did you use for this?

    (keep up the good work!)

    It's about time that someone finally decided to use those crappy,wannabe transformers,power rangers toys for something cool! You also gave me a good idea;Target and TRU put the older ones on sale all the time so I think I'll go get some back-up parts for customs.

    there's no questioning who it is, regardless of the mode he's transformed as, that's for sure.

    Oops I guess details would help. I picked upa Power Drilling Power Ranger from TRU as the base. I was originally going to use it for a Nosecone but opted for a Bombshell instead. A cool feature of the figure is that when you push the waist it will spin the gun barrel. Another thing I opted for was the dirty worn look on him. I was going to give him a nice new shiney paint job but thought "ITS WAR!"

    He was actually a spur of the moment figure and it actually got me of my list!

    Cool. Fair enough and are you still planning to do a Nosecone in the future or do other ones then go back and do that.

    Nicely done, that man! I have to admit, sometimes I catch myself looking at the PR figs - some of them tend to look quite interesting, but I can never actually bring myself to buy one...
    Excellent use of them... and I definitely think, especially given the apparent transformation, that it'd make a good base for Nosecone too.
    The only thing that I can think of as a crit is that the legs (and possibly the arms) look a hair organic (or at least not quite Transformerish, if you know what I mean). A little styrene padding would be able to fix that up a treat, if you were of a mind to.

    I agree with Ramrider's comment about the limbs, but overall I think this rocks. It's clearly identifiable as Bombshell, and the alt mode works really well. Bang on, man!
