    Yep, someone went & turned Leader Megs into a Custom Blackout, which of course means this thing can't transform (so I'm not havin' any part of it) but some folks seem to dig that sorta thing...

    Anyway, fought the idea of posting this, but the people seem to have done this for charity, so... (begrudgingly continues post with Jiminy Cricket crackin' the whip...)

    And of course, here are the pics...

    I saw this yesterday. It's pretty unique, but what's the alt form if it could TF???

    Wow, this does look nice. And I don't mind the non-TF aspect of it. Reminds me of a Blackout/Scorponok hybrid someone else did sometime last year.

    (But sadly, this belongs in Radicons GD)

    Very unique and I love the look of it. To bad no transformation but I would still have something like that on my shelf.

    o_O ... a helicopter. Blackout was a Sikorsky helicopter. (A military vehicle.)

    The full name is Sikorsky MH-53 Pave Low heavy-lift helicopter

    And it's an amazing custom...whoever made it really has talent and a gift.

    be honest though if you had something that looks that awesome in Robot mode would you want it in vehicle mode?

    If it did transform I'd say helicopter, it may not transform but you can see bits of the alt mode, it strkes me as a large robot replica

    If it doesn't transform, it's all Style no Substance, imo.

    Well I guess I have to say something about the elephant in the room. The custom is mine :D  I posted him up in the e-bay section of our site. Didn't really feel justified in re-posting him in Radicons. Didn't realize so many people hadn't seen him yet. Thanks for the amazing compliments guys. Not transforming hasn't been an issue for me personally because I only transform my figures maybe once..then they sit around in bot mode the rest of the time.
