    This is my attempt at a triple changer / Dou-Con Blitzwing. It's more a proof of concept. It was easy to concieve the design but I totally stuffed up with the paints and now have to start over.

    Is it just the Seeker mold with a tank hanging off the back? It's a neat idea, but I feel like the tank should do more for robot mode.

    Um, that's what blitzwing looks like though. all his tank kibble was on his back, to have tank parts anywhere else, it would not be Blitzwing. Why overcomplicate something that doesn't need to be?

    It's not that it doesn't look like Blitzwing, it's that he doesn't need the tank to look like Blitzwing. It's a superfluous accessory to the core robot.

    I like this man! This is one of THEE hardest character to pull off. I think, personally, this is the best way to acheive a really cool toy without sacrificing his bot appearance. Excellent concept and it looks fan-freakin-tastic!

    I have to agree that it seems like the tank is just an accessory. Maybe if the arms were part of the tank? I think it looks good but is missing something fundamental.
