    After seeing the Terradive mold and seeing how it's altmode was rather reminiscent of WFC Slipstream's altmode, and how it's back heel looked like high-heeled feet if angled a certain way, I set out on this little project. After lopping off his collar and getting ahold of a ROTF Arcee's head and doing a bit of resculpting, I was ready to get this project underway.

    She's a little tricky to balance, but with some fiddling, that doesn't completely stop her from being able to hold dynamic poses.

    And here are some pics in jet mode

    This one is looking nice. But one question. Dos the RoTF Arcee head fit on Terradive? And where are the heels from?

    The heels are from the original feet. They're just mistransformed. That's awesome! Not sure i completely like the head though. :/

    I'm going to be the bad guy here and say that the lilac/purple is a bit too light, and way too...um, is pastel the right word? I'm not good with art terminology, but it looks a lot like a thick coat of gloss paint, which is rarely a good thing. As it stands, the shades you're using invoke animationswhile the glossiness invokes CGI. I'd say if you can, either use the same paint but flat, or go for another shade but glossy. Just my 2 cents.

    The concept itself is actually quite nice. While I think that Terradive is hard enough to balance as it is, the heels certainly make her more feminine. The head I'm not 100% on, though. Otherwise, nice job, great concept. :)

    Love the colors. This is a really great idea, and does make a good Slipstream. :)
