    I liked Cybertron Repugnus' velociraptor mode, but hated that stupid fin and that stupid fish-head in robot mode. I repainted the goldenrod gray, removed the fin (it's separate piece that just slides out after unscrewing the body), drilled a hole, and transported a repainted Cyb. Armorhide head.

    Behold:

    RAP-TOR!!

    So let me see if I got this straight... He has a robot head just sitting on his back in dino mode?

    It looks like it nestles into the back of the dinosaur neck, where the face of the original toy's head would go.

    That is correct. From a profile angle, it's a little bulbous, but you can't tell it's a head. It just kinda makes the base of the dino's neck look a little deformed. For my first ever kitbash, I'd say it turned out fairly decent...

    that is unbelievably excellent. I may have to steal your idea, I hate the fish/fin thing too. Good job.

    Go for it. All I ask is you give me credit for the character, unless you use different colors or head, then just cite me, or Manyoufactsure (who gave his C. Undermine a head) as inspiration! :D 


    Oh, and thanks for the kind words, everyone!

    Good idea, he looks much better with a "real" head. Nice. Did you finish Jazz? Really want to see that one.

    I still can't figure out how to get 'Bee's headlights out, and I want them out to paint them and the feet...

    He's coming slowly but surely...

    You did a nice job there but your not the first to have this idea. look here.http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=109764

    I kept the fins as wings but they are removable.

    Welcome to the world of kitbashing. It becomes an addiction.

    Thank you, and sorry. Before I created the character, I searched all the message boards for "Repugnus" and "Raptor" and "Rap-Tor", and found nothing. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to take credit for your idea... [​IMG]

    it's close, but they are different. he used a KO GaoGaiGar Horyu head, you used Armorhide's. he added wings, you didnt. you repainted, he did not.

    you didnt take credit for his idea, you didnt even know about it. you just both had similar ideas. no one can be blamed for that.

    I just wanted to point out that your not the only one with the same dislike of Undermine or Repugnus and attempted to change it. I have no more copyright to these molds than you do. The main thing is to enjoy what you do.

    Keep up the good work and I look forward to your next custom.

    Thanks.

    (I just got scared that I had inadvertantly done what I read other people get pissed about - not giving credit.)
