    Hats off to you guys who've tackled this project before, this guy has been beyond frustrating. Started out with a badly damaged Diaclone Shackwave that couldn't even transform because someone melted the plastic on his backpack hinges. Using an mp Skywarp for parts. I'm going to be making some hopefully subtle changes to him, his head is on a neo shifter swivel. So he can look way up, down, and turn his head. Shoulder swivels are being worked out. Yellow Led in his head, purple in the chest,on the same battery pack, and an independent one in his left arm. The original hose is garbage so I'll be doing something different with that. I plan on keeping Skywarps jet nozzle heels, they're poseable, and he's a flying gun, so it makes sense to me :)  & lastly he has a subtle abb crunch feature, courtesy of some Technic frame work and balls joints. So what's left is mostly styrene work, and that's where I want to modernize his look a bit, extra details, as opposed to his uber clean original marvel look. Thanks for looking, and if you read all that then I feel bad for you ;) . PS why the feth are yellow, and purple leds so hard to track down???
