    Well It struck me while packing up a box for the move and just had to try it!!!
    more info and alt-mode when I wake up!! :D 

    UPDATE1:
    Well as promised.. I might be thinking of a way to get those huge G1 toes/feet
    but for today I'm totally satisfied ;) 

    UPDATE2:
    Finally got some new blue paint...
    they fortunately didn't have my favorite semi-gloss/flat
    So this will be my first glossy classics :p 
    O well... so TwinTwist will receive paint tomorrow
    TopSpin will be finished tomorrow and prolly is painted the day after![/B][/COLOR]

    UPDATE3:
    Well a small teaser for twintwist, just some spots left and the face...
    Topspin is in the cleaning process and will be drying overnight..
    painted tomorow and done the day after...
    so this Sunday both will get a nice little photo shoot using my new BG

    Ya know, every so often I look at my G1 Topspin & Twintwist figures & wonder if they were done up the right way, kind of a cross between G1 & classics, what they would look like.....

    ......Just like yours man! You nailed it! Fantastic job on the quick mods, cant wait to see what they look like when you've finished 'em! :thumb

    Nice! I just think that the head could be concealed more on them, but otherwise they're well done!

    Neat. Shame that using Skyblast parts makes them Scout sized. Good mod in any regards.

    They look good. The only little nit pick is that the heads are a little big for the bodies used. Overall, very well done.

    thnx bro! :) 

    you do know the original right :D 
    it's simple awkward to begin with ;)  and the heads are in the way the whole time, but since I removed the wheel gimmick I actually have space to store the heads, so I think I'll try it out on one first... thnx :p
