    A straight ball joint swap with the DotM Roadbuster. I repainted the Roadbuster legs and simply popped them onto Tomahawk's ball joints. The figure still transforms, mostly. Heli mode suffers a bit, but robot mode fits in perfectly with classics style figures now, which was my priority.

    Nice work, , I display mainly in robot mode so doing something like this on a custom IMO is great if alt mode has to suffer some.

    Yeah that's a good idea...I mean...the alt. mode still works even if it is a bit less streamlined...I never really liked Tomahawks legs, and have been looking to replace them...nice work! Thanks for the inspiration!
    BTW, your Avatar and Sig scare the shit out of me.

    That's not bad at all. I don't really think the alt mode suffers all that much, if at all, to be honest. The wing-mounted guns I take it are from the Roadbuster as well?

    Thanks all. :D 

    You know I honestly can't remember. Looking at them they remind me of the weapons from the deluxe topspin. Could be wrong, it was a few months ago when I did this.

    Yes this is good-looking, nice job.

    Any ideas for the use of those old Tomahawk legs?

    The legs don't look too bad but all the silver seems kind of out of place to me because the upper torso doesn't really have that color in it. Maybe add some silver up top to bring it all together otherwise it kind of looks frankensteined

    Thank you. This is so much better than what they did to the poor guy. I still plan on just putting ROTF Brawns feet on but this is sweet.

    Ooh, nicely done! That looks much better than the spindly chicken legs than the Bayverse gave us!

    Nice alternative! For some reason his factory legs don't bother me at all. Tomahawk is by far my favorite of the bunch. This does help make it a little more basic bot looking

    A good concept, but ultimately, I don't think those legs fit aesthetically. The proportions seem off as well.
