    Heya team,
    Well, it has been a busy Christmas/New Years, and I've been putzing with a few little projects.
    Recently a good friend of mine was cleaning out his basement and he found a Transformer he was not familiar with, so he gave it to me. It was a Beast Machines Jetstorm. I did not have any experience with Beast Machines, and I had always thought the toys were kind of goofy looking, but I added the fig to my collection. There was something very familiar about the figure to me, and I decided that it's bird like design (especially the head) favored Laserbeak a bit. I tracked another Jetstorm down on Ebay for like $4 and then re-painted him into some Laserbeak colors...I modded the "jetpacks" with jet nozzles, vertical stabalizers and laser cannons as a nod to the G1 fig. we all love. Nothing drastic here, but he looks nice parked next to Jetstorm.
    Thanks for looking!

    That's pretty sweet yo. You got bot mode pics? Seems the yellow original colors could be Buzzsaw. Nice additions to the figure too

    It looks great! I love the nods to G1 Laserbeak. Especially the guns/thrusters. Have you thought about painting the blue plastic black? With the red paint apps, which look great by the way, it would look even more like Laserbeak IMO. Either way, I like it a lot.

    Keep up the good work!

    Oh and yeah, bot mode pics plz!

    Thanks you guys!
    I had considered painting the blue/green areas black, but for some reason, I couldn't bring myself to do it...
    Bot pics will happen after I go to Toys-R-Us and pick up the BSG figure I need for his hands!
