    Picked up Onlsaught and Powerglide at target this morning. Onslaught will eventually become Bruticus' chest/mid-section on a project further down the line.

    Powerglide...needs a G1 makeover. I'll be knocking this one out this coming weekend I hope.

    Anyway, lemme know what you all think about the digi-bash.

    It looks good but I can totally see why Hasbro didn't go that way.

    It's too boringly-red for the kids to want.

    Looks a lot like the Henkei version. It's a good look.

    I'm sure some other sites have some better res pics, but you can get the idea of it HERE

    Personally, I'd like to see it with some F_R love on it, some crazy LED mod's would be cool. :thumb

    looking at a23's pic...It looks as though there will need to be more effort towards making it more unique.

    checking it out, it seems the lightpiping is red, which I'll need to make blue. I also plan to add better color variations.

    I guess I'll bash some secret weapon for him too.

    I think it's supposed to be an A-10 Warthog, but it's isn't quite right. Oh and I can't wait to see what you do with it. Big fan of all your stuff.

    Fudge :(  At first I thought It was an actual repaint. MY only complaint about this toy is his hugeness!! Can't imagine little Powerglide being so big! At least, he's got some cool transformation unlike universe Silverbolt
