    I wish they had tags for "Minor Mods". Anyway, onto the project at hand. :) 

    Well I bought a couple Deluxe Laserbeaks and decided I'm gonna have fun with them. then after seeing the final results I've decided I'm going to buy at least 8 more. I am going to turn him into a massive Chinese Dragon.

    I hope I am the first to do this. :) 

    Laserbeak is no longer a coward.

    I like the way that looks. It has the potential to be massive like a bakugan. Then it's funny as well. Brings new meaning to "head up ones ass"

    Here's a small update.

    [​IMG]

    I swapped the front legs with each other for a more natural look and feel.

    I decided to keep the back wings closed, also for a little more realism for what I'm going for.

    I think once I add more components from other Deluxe Laserbeak figures this thing is gonna look really great, especially once I add the mechtech weps. :)

    Getting an odd Human Centipede vibe from this - but looks nice with ol' LB here...

    And now, one of the robots i most hate from DOTM, is being used for something good.

    I just wonder, though. Oriental dragons...i could swear they weren't robotic... :lolol 

    You have a lot more money than me, bro. A lot more money.

    Wasn't thar just one of the sickest movies?

    Great job on this. I think it looks better with the back wings out. IMO.

    This is a great idea too if you decide not to spend your money on so many Laserbeaks.

    Also to everybody else, thanks so much for the feedback.

    I am also of thinking of adding some Sea Attack Ravage parts to this, I'm unsure as I gotta see how everything will fit together. :) 

    Edit: Can't add anything from sea attack ravage unless I cut up the toy. I really don't want to cut up my toys. I was hoping the balljoints were similar in size but alas, they are not. so it looks like I'll just be sticking with Laserbeak figures afterall. :)

    Killer! :thumb 

    Maybe it wouldn't be that bad if Laserbeak was a shelfwarmer.

    This is awesome....so much so that I went out and found two Laserbeaks just so I could do the same.....I love Dragons....and this is perfect, well almost....I want to try and find a different more "Dragon" looking head....other than that, it is perfect.

    Great eye for the "unseen" here, and thanks much for sharing it with us.

    Thanks Plowking.

    Yeah, I'm waiting to find a better head as well. I may end up looking in the Bakugon department. or....maybe I'll just wait for the retool that's coming out soon enough.

    The head on the retool (view the instructions to see what I mean) looks very Dragon-like.
