    Hey guys, started working on a BW Tigerhawk to go with Lio Convoy, and ultimately be a BW custom combiner.

    He still needs more work, but I'm slowly squeezing him in between commissions. His wrists can now swivel, and his knives store in his wings in true BW style! He will also have cannons on his wings, as soon as I get the other Ares cannon piece.

    Anyway, more to come!

    I'm usually not a fan of heavy/scratch 3rd party customs just cause the figures themselves are expensive but this looks promising :popcorn

    How did you achieve the wrist swivel? I need to do that to my TFC bots, it's a bit of a joke they didn't come with it already!

    Nice work too =)

    Likewise. Such things usually make me cringe at the sheer cost involved.

    You Sir, have some MAJOR CAJONNES.

    Having said that; this does indeed look like it has some serious potential.
    Be interesting to see how he looks when finished :thumb

    Sawed off at the wrist and used mini neodymium magnets for reattachments.

    Amazon.com: Applied Magnets ® 100 Rare Earth Neodymium Magnets 1/4" X 1/16" Discs: Home Improvement

    100 pack goes a long way.


    Well get ready to cringe even more, there are three 3P figures involved lol. TFC Phlogeus, Headrobots Butcher, and UT Warhawk.

    Are those wings detachable? I like figure how it is now.
    What are the wings from if you dont mind me asking?

    Your idea inspired me to think of this.

    What if you gave all the predacons wings like that and then have the wings combined into some super wing set for combined mode.

    I guess it would make into griffincons? or flying predacons?

    Just an idea if you want to run with it.

    The wings are detachable and are from UTs Warhawk figure.

    The griffin stuff sounds cool, but I am repainting all the TFC Ares bots into BW bots, and making some kind of BW combiner.

    Will you be making bw themed pcc limbs for Phlogeus (and possibly their Divebomb if he can turn into a torso)?

    That is a good idea, I need to get some PCC limbs since all four of the Ares limb bots will have PCC ports.

    I did play around a bit with him before he went under for plastic surgery

    Hey folks, long time no update!

    Hot on the heals of Lio Convoy, Tigerhawk should be done soon. Thinking of integrating the combiner parts into all the bots.
