    So Ross has these Iron Man TF Crossovers for $6 now, got 2, and decided to look in the parts bin to see what I wanted to make with them. Found a Alt. Rollbar head, a random depticon emblem to cover the IM logo on hood, A WFC Megs cannon, used a tip end of Jetwing Prime gun, some MP seeker hands, and one heck of a spiffy paintjob later and this is what you get! Alt. mode up after he's set and cured a bit. Comments are always welcome, enjoy folks!

    Holy cow awesome dude! I was thinking about doing swindle with this mold, but actually try to go for him being part of a combiner, sweet choice for the head! :)

    Excellent work on Swindle. Lord knows I love it when this mold gets repurposed, and this is yet another great example. Just imagine though, how big would Bruticus be if this guy was one of his legs....??

    Great work, yet again!

    Thanks my man! A super big fan of your work from before you even joined the boards here, so that means alot coming from you! Funny you mention that, as I had it all mapped out and bought most of the bots, he was intended to be a part of the bigger picture ;)  (blast-off being the only one I hadn't made a decision on yet). Strangely enough, I don't know if that will ever become a reality, as I got so many things i'm working on currently....
    Thanks! With what I had laid out, he'd be about 7" taller than TFC Herc! Outta scale and over the top? maybe. Since getting the FP add-ons for Bruticus I've sort-of lost interest in that project though. I have Classics Universe onslaught, A modified Universe Dropshot for Brawl, A Uni. Blades for Vortex, and this guy here, but got stumped for Blast-off. Know any good TF Voyager scale Shuttles out there anyone? TFCC Timelines Astrotrain maybe?
    Thanks so much! and another big thanks for following my work! It could still happen possibly...........
    Thanks Zac! You sir have'ta post a tutorial on those awesome glow effects you make!!!!

    :jawdropper:  this is amazing! i'm a huge combaticon fan so this is easily one of the best customs i've ever witnessed. excellent use of the WFC megatron fusion cannon! what mold did you use? i'm tempted to do one of these myself

    So I poked around the interwebs, and I think you could turn the marvel crossover human torch figure into a decent Blast Off. The only other shuttle I can think of is the armada Jetfire, but he's kinda big...

    Best version ever of the best Con ever.

    Ps. It would take a little tweeking but the Super GoBots Space shuttle is a good size to go with this.

    very sweet rendition.i like how you added the chest chunk!(i was too lazy on mine and he still sports the captain america star on his chest:eek: 

    about blastoff,have you given any thought to using energon jetfire?
    i did awhile ago,and it seems to fit pretty good.if you do end up using all voyagers and a leader class,you'll probably end up with a bot that's 17-22 inches tall or more.
    check out the combined mode using energon jetfire,this thing stands at 22" tall.it is totally doable:thumb (btw,totally not a thread jacking meant in any way at all,just trying to show you that it's achievable,and with your talents,adding the next sweet spin to it!!:bowdown:

    Thanks Dan!
    Wow, I'm honored man. Great to recieve such praise! This is the Transformers Crossovers Iron Man Humvee. He's going for about $6 Ross stores now.
    The Human Torch is a good canidate for sure. I'd have to trim off the little fins on the top in alt mode and make one big fin for the middle that breaks into 2 halves (so it looks balance in bot mode for each leg.) But i think it's doable:)  Will have to consider this.....
    Thanks! That Brawl looks sweet man! A matching brother in arms!
    Praise from the master head caster! Thanks so much my friend!
    Powerful words brother! Thanks so much!
    Thanks!
    Nah, this guy's for me!
    Thanks man! I laugh a little every time I see your Avatar:) 
    Thanks again! Good rendition of the beast there! Yeah, definitely doable. I've been researching on the boards here and there is quite a few voyager scale versions of the character on here. I'll have to pick this up again sometime in the near future. After Omega and Metroplex are finished......
    Yep! I thought so too;)

    every now and then a Radicon comes out that you have to honestly ask without a hint of Nerd-rage and say in all honesty "Why havn't you done this Hasbro?" Swindle from Crossover Iron-man is one of those figures.
