    Wow dude, that's an ambitious custom. Nicely done. The only thing I could think to improve on it would be to maybe find a head that better resembles Thundercracker. Otherwise awesome work!

    Thanks, this was my first fighter plane conversion. I don't know how most people feel about Road-bots, but when it comes to customizing a 1/18 scale to accommodate figures, and have anything resembling real proportions, I like em.

    I really like this, and I'd like to see more Joe and Cobra vehicles see transform modes. This piece has very interesting personality to it. It doesn't quite scream "Thundercracker" to me, but it's not far off either.

    Regardless, the sheer ambition of this piece is certainly commendable, and you've executed things nicely! Now we just need more photos for a gallery :wink:

    that is awesome! Now can you get a squished up Cobra Viper in the cockpit?
    (anyone get that joke?)

    That's a fantastic job! It looks great. Can we expect other seekers from you, or are you moving on to another vehicle next?

    I have four more robots to show, and yes you can still get two figures into this vehicle.

    this is fantastic. i bought a target exclusive rattler to do this same idea, but didn't have faith in my reverse engineering skills. are you planning on any more devils due gi joe/tranformers figures? keep up the great work.

    Well, that just made my day. Also eating at the CiCi's buffet did too. Both are yummy.

    This is a new one I haven't seen yet, very nice work. I think of all the other TF/Joe stuff I've seen from you, this one actually looks most like his namesake. Great work!

    Thanks, apparently a lot of people are particular to them names just being given out to any old robot. I'm learning...

    I just showed this to my girlfriend and she absolutely thought it was brilliant. (She bought me the 25th Rattler and new it right away.) Anyhow, that's a big compliment as she isn't a fan of any of this stuff. Nice work!

    Very, very nice job, though it might look better if the cockpit was on the back. Still, VERY impressive.
