    Was in walmart today,found treadbolt and met a fellow fan. we started talking about botcon and dreadwind so now i am thinking i can just make a dreadwind and not only that i can plug in another jet bot were the bosters go.
    so the real question what bot do u guys think would work for darkwing?

    I was thinking of doing the same thing. I tried to figure out a way to make Cybertron Thundercracker work as Dreadwing (I was gonna switch the characters cuz Darkwing's the one with swing wings) but decided against it because Thundercracker's just such a crappy toy.

    Universe Silverbolt might work. He's big, but it just might work.

    I've actually been working on one of these. I've got Jetfire and TFU Silverbolt, lots of modding and they clip onto one another. It's on my "to do soon" table.... still working on the costume here :( )

    I was at one point (still contemplating it) making it so that silver bolt's front and back end split and JF goes in between, this involves 3 parts becoming 1 but i think it give it a good sense of gestaltilism.

    For mine, I'm using the same general transformation as the original two. The back part of Jetfire opens, and Silverbolt's legs will clip to his with magnets, then the back part closes on top.

    Basically in combined jet mode. the back would be silverbolt's back, then comes jetfire in the middle, then silverbolt's nose/front on the front of it.

    jetfire also can easily be modded into darkwing, I've seen it done.

    i think it would look alot more flush if you flipped over the silverbolt in the concept pictures so that more of the kibble sat underneath the conglomoration. As it stands now it the three tiers seem too tall.

    It seems we all have similar ideas here. Typically i have to wait for some time to get Silverbolt, being in the UK and all.

    Good bashing guys!
