    This was a project I had on the backburner for quite some time (as far back as 2 years). I had a spare Classics Cyclonus in one of my bins and I decided to add Cybertron Dirt Boss' head to it. I thought it made for a great combination. Then I decided to create some kind of energy sword that can be plugged into the back of the head. The sword itself is comprised of multiple pieces, so it does partsform. I'll probably create a weapons cache for him sometime down the line. I was going to call him Shatterstar, but that was before I decided to suspend the project.

    I always did like the Gundam X beam sabers.

    It's comprised of that, a craft bead, a lego technic axel and flexible cable. The axel plugs in from behind the fist, the bead covers the excess, the Gundam sword plugs right in. I remember trying different ways to do without partsforming, but they never quite achieved the look I desired.

    Not at all a combo I would've thought of. Has some serious promise.

    Cool. I'd like to see another angle on how that headsculpt looks on that body. I like it.

    (And perhaps a Gears or Brawn from the remaining Dirt Boss body/Cyclonus head?)

    I've no plans on making Gears or Brawn. I typically aim for more obscure characters.
