    Finally got Blastoffs transformation to work. Not as easy as I thought.

    First, a d00d pulls the wings out, then rotate them around. They are built on MP Prime bumper to grill thingies. This allows them to also fold up against the legs.

    Next, the cargo panels flip up followed by sliding the tail wing onto his back. Sky Lynx's original tail is being used for this but rather than having it hang out, it sucks it up onto his back (Toon accurate)

    The alt Prowl arms then flip out and turn into place. They are hinged on E Shockblast gun screw mounts. In the second last pic, you can see his Bruticus mounting point. It gets covered when the lower cockpit flips down. I still need to install the cockpit and lower cockpit sections.

    ....anywho, he's all kibblicious but has quite a bit of articulation. I'm currently trying to decide whether I should make the wings removeable to become part of Bruticus' chest plate.

    This Masterpiece Combaticon set is probably my favourite kitbash project, can't wait to see it finished! You got any ideas for Vortex yet?

    I started on him probably 8 months ago. I got stalled out trying to figure out a way to get the wings and the arms to work. So I built a Brawn and started a Soundwave while dwelling on the problem then ended using the leftover parts from those projects.




    To Seali Me: I'm planning a MP Constructicon set but the kits are hard to come by in 1/25 scale. I've got a line on a Bulldozer and may be able to piece together a Cement truck outta two different kits I've found. Any links or help to complete the set would be greatly appreciated.



    Vortex is still being planned. The kit I'm using won't allow for his arms to be in the tail section. It's actually got me stumped pretty good.

    I'm sure this thing will turn out wonderfully since all your other re-shells are pretty much amazing.
