    Frakkin Toasters! Got on mah planet and killed all mah doodz!!

    Do it! So say we all!! (well me at least)

    I saw the thumbnail for this thread and thought it was a blueprint picture for the animated twins, not a viper, so I think you're on the right track with it.

    I'll miss this show when it's gone.

    Yes, that was the first thing I thought of when I saw those alt modes for the first time. The only reason I'd pick them up is if I could figure out a way to mod them into Vipers.

    Wow... so obvious. There was something naggingly familiar about Jetfire/Jetstorm, but somehow it just didn't occur to me until now! :) 

    Now they just need new wings and a central engine/fin in jet mode...

    i thought they were based off of the vipers. a side note that the diamond select cylon figures hands can be swapped out with sideways without any modding. im in the middle of that custom at the moment. its like they wanted the cylons to enter the tf world.

    I had the same thought, but I'm not ready to spend the $22 to try it out. Maybe if they go on sale or clearance I will pick some up.

    Only question would be the robot heads. Maybe one old school helmet and one new school? Or one Galactica helmet and one Pegasis?

    I'd love to see someone pull this off.

    HAHA! You have to try this out man! If Mickey Mouse can have a crossover, than BSG needs to have one too. Do it, keep us posted.

    BSG Vipers look a lot like pre-earth seekers, too.

    There are lots of BSg kits that would make for some nice custom fodder.

    Totally...

    ...a LONG time ago, I tried to make a Viper out of my son's first X-Wing Lego...never finished it...

    When they go on Clearance (hopefully) or when loose ones start showing up on Ebay, I might give it a try.

    I have one of the Colonial Viper toys, and here are some ideas for parts to really do this - The wings and engines can be used from some of the Star Wars Transformers (especially the wings from the Palpatine/Imperial Shuttle and the engines from Luke Skywalker/X-Wing.

    The nosecones and cockpits are already spot on with the existing molds. The Vipers have always been one of my favorite space fighters, and the twins are awesome. Totally look forward to your future work on this.
