Hi all, Skyfire was always one of the Transformers that I liked in the G1 series, and since I could start collecting figures always wanted a Skyfire like it, looking right and left according to size It was on the show, a spaceship. It turns out that Hasbro originally bought the line to Takara Transformers figures and to promote them in the United States decided to make an animated series and then sell the figures, what happens is that Takara had created Jetfire, and as he molds The VF-1 Macross and they fit with the scale, then repainted one and already had it. When Hasbro was to make the series encountered could not use the model of Jetfire, because the license was Macross model, then it was that created Skyfire for the series G1, but when selling the figures rather than make a new mold of Skyfire, who already had used the Takara, not to go to ruin by a single new mold, and instead of the spacecship that is Skyfire in the series, sold Jetfire, a Vf-1 with SuperPack (Look, I'm a big fan of Macross and I have many valkiry that I love, but is that a VF-1 no longer a small jet but with the SuperPack can fly in space) and just in case people was surprised to wonder what had happened to Skyfire, then made to disappear in the series without explanation (as many others). My joy in a well, at least I could have removed parts of SuperPack of the arms and legs, which I tell you when you leave me with a SuperPack Skyfire in the G1? Well, much later in the Dreamwave comics Jetfire reappeared, and in this case was given an explanation of the figure SuperPack, which turned out to be a battle armor and to improve conditions in space. This SuperPack is practically the same super Vf-1, but when it is removed, appears with his original skyfire simple jet pack on his back. Aided by a sublime design Figueroa, this Jetfire does remember the original Skyfire in size and shape. And while Hasbro / Takara decided to take the classic line remodeling and modernizing the G1 (more or less success) trying to comply in most cases the original designs (especially in robot mode), and I said, at last I'll have my Skyfire (Thinking about the recent Dreamwave design) and finally take it out, and I do?, as neither more nor less than a redesign of the VF-1 with SuperPack, let a jet nose of spacecraft and the happy double SuperPack on the back. Good, in robot mode had a pass if you took off the pack of arms and the hull, but still did not see Skyfire (too many wings everywhere in robot mode). And to top it off, you tell yourself, if you are taking Voyayer Deluxe models, Jetfire was a little big to be a great Voyayer, not you, then no, better make it a dwarf Voyayer that we have made great Powerglide, which as in G1 was so immensely large, for that so that when put together are better. Again Hasbro / Takara showing off with the poor Skyfire. Luckily, a while ago I found a forum post where they made a decent change and not very complicated in classic Jetfire to get Skyfire: Universe Skyfire - WIP Along with a link to another forum where zedzdead explains an extension of the legs to gain height: classics jetfire leg extension (1 cm taller) - TFormers Community zedzdead album http://s105.photobucket.com/albums/m208/zedzdead_bucket/Skyfire Custom/ Well seeing this, I ventured to try to get my Skyfire more or less decent, and I started with my first custom, doing my own version of Jetpack. Well, with all the changes made was the following: Jet mode: Robot mode: And I could not miss a comparison with Optimus Prime: This was my first custom, I did six months ago, but has been now that I finally decided to paint and this is what is left: Jet mode: Robot mode: And the comparison with several Prime, to see how it would have been if they had larger: Well, although not perfect, I think another aspect that improves their lot, and without making too many changes. This gives an idea of what it would cost to Hasbro / Takara give us an acceptable Skyfire, both in shape and size. But anyway, I hope you liked it, and some are encouraged to make the transformation that is not too complicated and the result is worth it. Well here I'm dreaming that one day Hasbro / Takara deigns to make a Masterpiece Skyfire like god, who also dreams alive. Finally uploaded some pics of how it looks with his fellow Autobots Classics: Greetings to all, and to see what you think.
