    Not sure which forum to put this in, but I plan to turn ROTF Dirge in a new Combaticon Blast Off. I did a rough draft of what I want to do...

    Here's my idea compared to the original Blast Off. What do you think??

    I'm gonna try to do the robot mode as well, but I am new at this. I hope I can do this in reality when I get the figure!!

    It would be a cool repaint...if Hasbro would release it I would consider passing on Dirge to get Blastoff.

    Oooh, yeah, I'd totally buy that. Although, he might look out of place next to Onslaught and....(who's the Voyager?).

    I like it, but it might be confused with Skywarp.

    ^ You should get ROTF Brawn and mod him into Swindle.

    Would fit beter then Animated Swindel.

    I like it...but in robot form he would look like a Super Dirge fan that wants to be Blast Off as well. Baaahhahahaha shame on me for making a joke referencing the latest WTF@TFW. Boo. I'm done.

    Seriously, He does look pretty rad. Also..Kinda Skywarpy.

    Anything'd be better than a space shuttle. Oh, one of these things is not like the other...

    Still, your digibash looks kewl. Also, Paxtin has a point. Brawn would be a better fit than Animated Swindle, though you may want to wait until better pictures are released/leaked to digibash.

    I tend to stick to the "if you don't have nice things to say..." idea, but you asked for feedback.

    I hate the idea.

    If you're looking at repainting a figure, it might as well be Classics/Henkei Astrotrain. Regardless of what anyone says, Astronauts/Space Shuttle pilots are all Air Force and the space program is a military venture. You can't tell me that NASA is completely funded by the Government but they don't have any military interest.

    Blast Off is a Space Shuttle. When the space shuttle retires in the next few years, Blast Off will still be a Space Shuttle because Starscream built him out of a junker shuttle anyway.

    Sorry for the rant, but that's my take on the topic.

    The colors are absolute perfection. :D  I myself am more used to Blast Off being a space shuttle, but this still looks very nice and could definitely work as a potential redeco. Hell, I'd buy it. :thumb  As an avid Combaticon fan (both Swindle and Blast Off being my favorites) I hearby grant you my seal of approval :thumb  :bowdown:  Ruination04

    Thanks for your feedback! I hate the Classics Astrotrain figure and it makes no sense for Blast Off to look like "he might be to turn into a train too, now why is that?!" The whole NASA/military thing doesn't really bother me. Actually, Starscream built him out of a junker airplane. They didn't have shuttles back in the 1940s for there to be a junker.
