    Did this guy awhile back but added red panel lining to the whole figure and some other little details. Think he fits better in the WFC/FOC line with his aesthetics. Let me know what you guys think! Cheers!

    I always love your customs but I'm not so sure about this one. It's beautiful that it transforms and well, it's just beautiful in general, but it doesn't feel like Skyfire to me colours aside. I think it's because of how thin he looks and his not so imposing height.

    I think it's a great custom but not a great rendition of the character, if that makes sense.

    Hopefully I don't sound like a jerk as I don't mean to come off that way.

    Thanks man! Appreciate the support from a fellow wrecker fan!
    Thanks!
    Nah, not at all man. I realize we're all used to seeing this guy frickin' huge- so no big deal man. Though truthfully, if you were to put him next to FOC Optimus/Jazz/and shockwave figures- he'd tower over them easily. He's got all of classics Mirage's height plus about an extra 3/4" with added boosters for heels. So not as big a scale as we're all used to- but i think in scale with the other new figures that are coming out (man, are they tiny deluxes). Also see what you mean about his "bulk", and i tried to give him a little extra with the add-on super parts (plus a great throwback to the original toy), but that could only do so much, ya know?. Anyhow, thanks for the kind words, always good to hear from you man. Also, I should be getting back to work on Grimlock real soon (from my WW2 Era D-bots). I know you've been watching them and eager to see more, so it's comin brother!

    Yes, Yes, God Yes. Everything about that is just epic. How did you overcome the problem of his nose collasping for robot mode?

    I like it, I think it looks really good. Which Super VF Macross model did you scrap to get the parts, an ARII kit or a Bandai kit? The Super packages for the ARII kit are not really the right size for the Valkyries but the "Super" packages for the Bandai kits are spot on, you might could beef up his bulk by using the super packages from a Bandaii kit instead. See the pic I attached is an ARII kit with a Bandai "Strike" package attached to it.

    This is very original and creative , I'm do impressed how you manage to add the extra parts and incorporating them to the point that looks just like an actual full figure and not just a robot with add on parts here and there. The design and colors work well it's perfect great job .

    i like him. He looks young. Maybe you can say it's pre-great war jetfire. Before he had to armor up to fight the con's.

    It looks pretty good, except for the spoiler. You should really do something about that. It's really distracting in jet mode.

    This is so cool. I love it when this mold is used for a jet mode.
