    This looks great! I was thinking about doing the same thing so I'm super curious how this turns out.

    Good to know that I'm not the only one who had this idea. I was going to do this but i hated that Starscream.

    This is awesome. Really wish takara would do a similar take, but alter the wings for his classic "v" shape on the chest. How does it look without the knee extensions?

    Thanks! With the extensions off, and the tanks left at full-length, he looks like this:

    I think it may be possible to have a CW Swindle combine to the lower front. So you could use that for your Jallguar.

    I've seen others do similar things, but I'm not going that route. I have a Cybertron Hardtop that I'm going to re-work into Jaliguar, that will plug into Leozack's back in combined mode.

    The feet are made primarily from the feet of an Energon Shockblast, and KO G1 Superion feet that have been sawed in two. Various parts from my parts-bins have been added. I'll take a couple of better photos of the feet for you and post them here.

    The hands are simply from one of the black, first-version KO PE combiner hand & feet sets. The feet were repainted purple, and currently serve as feet from my UW Menasor.

    Thank you very much! I mulled over my torso options, and originally considered going with a combo of CW Silverbolt and Cyclonus parts, as others had done. But, a few people had also floated the idea of using POTP Starscream, and I'm glad I opted to go in that direction.

    The turret comes directly from a 1:72 scale die-cast and plastic model of a Flakpanzer Gepard anti-aircraft tank. You can get one on Amazon, but they are also available on eBay as well. The turret itself is all-plastic, and pops off the die-cast tank-base easily for modding.

    looks amazing so far, got to do something about the combined for chicken thighs though. Fix that and you got a full fledged winner.

    Photos of the feet. I had originally made them for my UW Menasor, but because of their narrow width, I thought they suited Liokaiser better, and repainted them.

    Ah okay fair enough it just seems like the gap on his crotch area is wide enough for a Combiner port which could allow Swindle to wrap around the torso.

    Interested to see that Hardtop as Jallguar.
