    Fireflight's robot mode turned out much better than I thought. I had a lot of trouble deciding what to do with his arms in jet mode. He's the only Aerialbot whose arms stow above the jet wings. In the end I decided to just let them hang out. It may not be real-world accurate, but I don't think it looks too horrible.

    This Fireflight actually started out as a G2 Fireflight. He's completely painted over which is standard for my customs so it didn't really make a difference. Like Air Raid, he's super-poseable and more show-accurate. His chest and hip stickers are custom made by me based on screen-caps from the show. His head came from Slingshot with certain areas carved down to make it better resemble Fireflight's cartoon head. The jet-mode stickers are from Delta Star. The wing and tail fin stripes came from one of the old repro label sets that was not pre-cut.

    Thanks guys! The splits were made possible by a G2 Fireflight, some Mini-cons, and a lot of patience!
