    My take on Spinister, that's now residing on my Classicsverse shelves. Only a few minor mods have been done; added a forehead crest from a thin piece of styrene and modded the rotor section to rotate onto the back with a screw, a couple of pieces of styrene and some greenstuff to bulk it up.

    There's a couple of rub spots, and some of the paint peeled from the black plastic on the chest, but that gives him a bit of a battleworm appearance.

    Wow, that's pretty much spot on. I never realized how perfect that mold is for an update of this character!

    Thanks for the comments guys, I've been wanting to do a Spinister for ages. I had a HftD Tomahawk sat read to convert, but when I saw this mold it just fit so well. The head requires very little modification, the cockpit is the lower legs. The only issue was the rotor assembly and that turned out to be a really easy mod to get it ontothe back.

    Funnily enough when I went to TRU to look for these (they've only just been released here in the UK), they only had two Vortex's and none of the other Combaticons. Knwoing my luck it'll take ages to find the others (though I've just picked up Swindle from another board member).

    I want to make the Scavenger crew of the WAP, I was thinking of using the Combaticons as a base for them all, so they could combine into Mighty Mega Puncher. Granted, I'd probably have to use Blast-Off twice for Krok and Misfire, while Crankcase would have to be from Onslaught. Though this'll require some thought and probably some major mods.


    I'd like to do them at some point, I might be able to use FoC Brawl as a basis for Quake. FoC Fireflight might work for Needlenose, but it'd require some serious mods. FoC Starscream is also a possibility, though the cockpit on the chest of Starscream would need to be reworked to a flatter Needlenose chest.

    That'll be cool. I actually thought Brawl could work for Quake. Not so sure about Needlenose.
