    If you find a method that works, I'd like to hear. I'm thinking of stripping the paint off my 3 Slash and one Cindersaur so I can apply extra stuff to make my Raptoricon builds.
    If Bombshell was maybe given more of a Predacon form, yeah. The shape and size is more like a Scarab beetle than a Stag. Would be cool to see though! Would be interesting to see how far we could take it too - Insecticon combiner? =D

    ...actually, speaking of... is it really necessary to strip the paint off to apply custom parts with adhesives or stuff like milliput for sculpting? I just want to get on with it, and I don't want the sculpting to fall off, but I'm not for having to spend hours stripping off the paint, it sounds like a massive pain >.<

    Well, Slash's paint comes off quite well. And the super weird thing about darkwings purple was it was only the left wings that had trouble. The right ones came off perfectly fine.... I have no idea of the cindersaur, though.....
    I know that sometimes yes, but not sure on the requirements .. as for the stripping thing, it's. Easiest with 91% isop ..uh...rubbing alcohol just plop it in a plastic tube and let ut sit overnight, or in some cases, an hour.

    I also use the magic Erasure trick.
    That's where I was going! Now, what other molds can be bugs or buglike creatures...

    I worry about that though, would it not weaken joints or you know, eat the plastic, if left too long?

    Cyclonus - Shrapnel (extensively heavy modding)
    Kickback - Blackwing (again, extensive modding)
    Bombshell - Slag/Slug (as above, lol) - Of note, Bombshell is widely considered a Rhinoceros Beetle, but comes off more like a weevil with the odd looking head weapon thing.
    Venom - Swoop?
    Ransack - Blackwing.
    Possibly Buzzclaw could be an option, but I'm not certain what to use for that.

    i know it definitely does with transparent plastics, but what i did was (with slash) was i only dipped the red piece for the chest, not the joints. didn't have a bad effect from what i experienced.

    nice! maybe a heavy rippersnapper mod for buzzclaw?

    Slag could also probably work for Barrage.

    I was thinking of buying a second Dreadwind so I could replace the backs of Strafe's legs so his wings could fold out of the way in arm mode. Is it hard to remove Dreadwind's paint?

    I'd like to see Optimus Prime and Rodimus Prime as a combiner.

    Or above concept and add in Jazz, Moonracer, and Inferno.
