    So after doing my Galvatron from the Skyhammer mold I wanted to see what others I could pull off and although Blades wasn't my first idea I just couldn't stop thinking about trying this.So here's a little teaser.

    My goal for my Protectobots is to have them resemble their G1 counterparts but have a much more aggressive look to them so with Blades I wanted to try to take as much of the attack copter look away as possible but still have that aggressive look to him.I removed the rear stabilizer fins,shaved down the front exhaust parts right above the cockpit,removed 2 of the main rotor blades and added the landing skids.The head will be a custom by spoonman and I may add a winch to him as well.

    I also have another Reformatted figure coming soon!!!!!!!


    UPDATE 11/3/12:

    Got the head from spoonman today and wanted to share.

    Interesting. For some reason it never occurred to me to see Blades in this mold... but I like what you've got so far.

    I'm wondering how hard it would be to alter the cockpit somewhat, maybe towards more of a bubble-shape that would make it look more like a civilian chopper (and maybe imply a slightly smaller scale).

    Seriously, bro, no matter what head you threw on top of that, the mold choice for Blades is awesome! This has to be my favorite Blades so far ;)
