    This is my very first kitbash/Custom. First thanks to IcedPhoenix for posting that Hailstorm arm mod. Everything else here is my doing. I probably over purchased some equipment but I used dremel, screwdrivers and razors. One arm is pretty loose and this guy has yet to be painted but I wanted to show him. I tried to incorporated a few of twintwist with reveal the shield Mindsets body. Other guys I used was a classics Reflector (He was missing his eyes when purchased and Nitro Bumblebee. I should have no problem painting him this week due to a nice knee dislocation I suffered from in Jiu Jitsu yesterday lol. Here is the current results.

    I hit the post button without rereading the text. In the third sentence I meant to say that I tried to incorporate parts from G1 twin twist, instead of the smudge wording you see above.

    Thanks I was going to bed and thinking how can I make him more Cybertronian and then I saw the jets on the back of Bee and then cables popped up. I'll need to keep myself in check so I dont over do it but I am having a blast. Thanks guys.

    Ive offically blown both knees out so they are balanced out now, but I'm good it goes with the territory. Thanks for the concern.

    I hope the paint job comes out good. While I have painted a lot in the past it's been years since I have done anything more than doodle and make superhero mask. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and already looking for the right molds to work in his brother.
