    I like this. This combination of parts makes a really good looking robot.

    Are you gonna show us his tank mode ?

    I know that others are gonna say this as well (for obvious reasons), but I especially like your take on the cannon mode (smaller barrel, open cockpit, angled mounts), and the fact that you're actually using the treads in plane mode (rather than letting them dominate or trying to unrealistically hide them) makes this even better. Along with that, your Blitzwing actually has a great robot mode, which is something that my G1 toy (well, mine's a KO but it's the same mold) always suffered in.

    Edit - Also, can the fins (front of the cannon) fold up to make sort of like a shield around the barrel? If possible, I think that'd be a cool variation as well.

    this image scream AWESOMENESS... but the tankmode is a letdown...
    I know it's though for getting 3 good modes... so I love your work...
    but the botmode and plane mode overshadow the latter :D  thnx for sharing!

    While that's true, the fact that Blitzwing has 2 alt modes means that in all fairness, he's not gonna be the best tank & he's not gonna be the best plane. That would likely be true even if he was real, so it's to be expected for a toy as well. Instead, having the best of both worlds that he can is gonna be where the guy shines, just like multi-purpose tools & whatnot that we use without thinking.

    Kick... ASS! The tank does seem kinda... un-tank-like...

    Any particular reason for a blue body? I woulda done G1 accurate, but this is a nice change. I like how the robot mode has a balanced amount of jet and tank parts.

    the only thing I didn't liked of the tank mode is the fins in there :p  but that's almost nothing

    I love that with Movieverse/Bayverse style, anything goes.

    Ratchet is green.
    Jazz is silver.
    Ironhide is black.
    Sideswipe is silver.
    Bumblebee is a Camaro.
    Optimus has flames.
    Jetfire is black. And Scottish. And old.
    Starscream has tattoos.
    Devastator is a multicolored gorilla.
    Soundwave is a silver satellite.
    Megatron is a crumpled ball of tinfoil.

    So a custom movie Blitzwing can damn well be anything. I like the idea of the 3rd mode, sorta like Mixmaster's cannon mode, this is a jet that transforms one more time into a cannon, not necessarily a de-facto tank.

    Nice work.

    Maybe I'm jaded here, but my Blitzwing toy is a blue & silver KO, so he's always been those colours to me. :) 

    Fuck the colour police!

    Yeah, I guess you're right about the characters. If I may add:
    Frenzy had ADHD.
    Mirage will be red.
    Skids is a stereotype.

    bot mode proportion is wicked..esp. with jet blade wings over there..it's looks more menacing than the original thrust/breakaway mold..

    jet mode are great too..i like how you made it, it have a bulk under carriage there, but yet still a sleek jet overall..

    for the tank/cannon mode is good too..my opinion is only on the tank gun..its too small from my opinion for a tank/cannon mode..

    great job bro :rock

    Love the robot mode, the style is great. I love the overall look of the figure, the way the wings fanned out. I would have love some more articulation in the feed/ankle for posing. Thats just me, and you have done a mighty fine work of art. I take my hat off to you.

    Well done. I wouldnt know where to start with a triple changer. Thwe vision and skill to pull this off is top notch.

    This was very fun. Love the jet and bot. Cannon/tank mode didn't look as consistent but it reminds me of a futuristic tank. Overall a great custom

    maybe if you find a way to attach his afterburner to his gatling gun, or have the tail fins fold away in tank mode you could turn his afterburner INTO is cannon! Just a though, maybe have his rear wings fold a lil different.
