    i stumbled aacross this today, it comes from a legends class universe thrust. its just blue tacked on for the minute but im going to make a peg for it and remove the wing part also. what do you guys think? i think its more in scale and similar to the g1 null cannons. these are for 6 of the 7 seekers starscreem is going to have different ones ive commisioned from somone on here. he is the air commander after all. comments welcome as always :) 

    EDIT: ive now put the peg in and have shaved down the the top and the wing part on the side (see pic). this is not at his shoulder height. i also used the thruster from the top of legends thrusts shoulder to add decoration to the top of the null cannon. this makes it look more like the original cannon that came with the figure. ive added a comparason pic of this cannon and the original cannon. all comments again welcome :) 

    EDIT: these are now more or less done, just a little bit sanding left to do then painting. ive added pics of them with dirge instead of thrust that way they stand out more and you can see them better.

    Interesting. Just wondering about what you're gonna do with the other arm, since that has a sword in it instead of a cannon.

    Looks pretty good man. I'm happy with the arm cannons but if I wasn't I'd try your idea

    If he has 2 of the same legends figures the sword and gun are interchangable pieces so you'd use a right and left arm but the cannons from just the left (or right, can't remember which arm the cannon comes on)

    I don't know why you say that. there's so many copies of that mold that it's ridiculous. just get two of them. use paint or dye to get the color you're needing. or, cast the two parts after you're done modifying them, and cast them in either the color you're needing, or white, which could then be changed into the color you're needing via paint or dye.

    I'm just thinking that the Aerial Rivals set is probably the easiest to get right now. Although, I did forget Ramjet, so your point still stands.

    Either that or i'm just too lazy and would much prefer not to have to paint if i dont have to. ;)

    Nice, I have been wanting to do this for some time, but never had the time.

    This something that should be cast and sold...to many people (at your personal profit!!!)

    Nope, don't like it. Not only is it too short, looks totally out of place.
