    Hello everyone!

    Here is the latest project to come off my workbench.
    This is my homage to Dreadwing from the TFP line...I feel as though you could stick him into any continuality, and he should fit just fine.

    Alt. Mode

    Dreadwing is made from ROTF Long Haul, Animated Starscream, Armada Starscream, HFTD Axor, Protoform Starscream, and a GI Joe Ghost Hawk.
    I fully realize that there is still detail work to mop up, and the pics I took of his alt. mode are a bit busy, but here we go!

    Thanks for looking!

    Do his feet flip forward? Because they really don't look right in alt. mode there.

    Other than that...Great work!

    That looks awesome! I love the robot mode, and the vehicle mode's great too, with those huge engines on the back, although it would look way better if you could find some way to make the feet fold up so they're sleeker.

    That robot mode is just one of the coolest things I have ever seen, but unfortunately the alt mode does look a little awkward. Can the feet be flipped down to face forward? That might look better.

    Torso is a bit short. Other than that, awesome!

    Yeah! Thanks!

    No, sorry...I had some leftover Armada Starscream legs just sitting on my workbench...not a lot of toe articulation sadly.
    Thank you!

    Thanks!

    Thank you sir!

    Unique is what I was going for...that, and getting some of the 50,000 parts off my bench lol!

    Thank you!

    I know what you mean...I just love the bulk of the legs in 'bot mode, so Alt mode suffers a bit.
    Thank you!

    Hrmmmmmm...

    They could, but Armada SS has these little wheele thingys on his legs that really help this guy sit level in alt. mode.
    Thank you though!

    Yay! Definately not perfect, but I'm satisfied!
    Thank you!

    He has a short temper as well LOL!
    Thank you! It was a lot of fun to build.

    I thought the robot mode was the actual stock figure itself, until further inspection. That's really awesome, even with the funky alt. mode!

    Robot mode: Resembles a football player
    Vehicle mode: Resembles The Bat from TDKR
    Overall: For using parts with a ton of different asthetics, the end result turned out looking pretty freaking cool. I'd like to see more characters redone like this!
