    Well it's not the most expensive Mirage ever but it very well could have been if I didn't use KO parts from the KO Botcon Mirage and the KO Disruptor Mirage I bought from daelite20 (of which he still has some left for a great price http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/items-sale-trade/347978-ko-seekers-mirages-energon-briefcase-more.html)

    Just swapped some parts, popped some pins and painted his face silver.

    From the leftover parts I made what I'm thinking of as a G2 version of Mirage that I'm putting in a G2/Diaclone Classics style display.

    Threw in a pic to represent the scene in mtmte where Mirage snuck onto the Nemesis to save the day

    Awesome! The blue Mirage turns out awesome in Alt mode.

    Did you break any while you were doing this?

    Nice. I think swapping the wheels and giving them a coat of Smoke would put this over. Though I have to say that I was a fan of the Electro Disruptor Rijie as-is.

    LOL Like the Amac inviso-box too. ;)

    tip... if you swap the trans.blue wheel with either the white or black... it's 10000%

    but it's already the best Mirage i've seen!!

    Now see, that's what a "stealth" Mirage should look like!! The all-blue always bugged the ever-living sh** out of me!! Bravo, man!

    How're the joints & everything?

    It looks fantastic. I just wish the wheels were the same clear black as the legs and shoulders. It would do wonders to help the look of this otherwise awesome toy.

    Stop it! I don't always break my TFs
    Thanks. and Thanks again for the hook up! I'll be hitting you up when you get the orange seeker in
    Thanks Allen!
    It's not horribly hard. Just gotta be good at popping pins and not breaking clear plastic toys :D 
    I think swapping wheels would be cool but I just can't get the process down for heating the wheel pins for proper removal
    Thanks a ton mate!
    Thanks I think so too :D 
    Hit me up and I'll make one for you

    Come over and check it out sometime

    Like I said I'll make one for anyone that PMs me
    yummy yum
    Joints are pretty good I tightened a few of them with super glue but before that it was fine for display it's just better now
    Agreed but as I stated popping those pins is not easy
    Thanks


    Also I am selling this one and buying more parts to make another one hit up my sales thread or PM me for a price

    Since people were asking about something like this in my last thread I figured I'd bump this one and ask what people would like to see out of a mid-mirage Mirage?

    Maybe a left-to-right like your Skywarp. Mirage was always sort of a full overall effect, all at once he faded out. So I think you might do well with a similar technique as on Skywarp. :)
