    Heh, i guess i should thank my Chemistry class. The girl who was collecting results from our experiment has yet to send them to me, so i had a day spare to get some bashing done. I decided to finally finish Cyclonus, as he's been sitting on my kitbashing table for over half a year now.

    He's made from a ROTF Dirge (in hindsight the repaint ROTF Jetblade would've been easier) with a missile battery from a Gundam Heavyarms Custom. I also gave him a new alt mode, this is achieved simply by mistransforming the legs, no mods needed.

    I made one major mod to this guy, fixing up his right arm. I'm one of those people that believe sideways elbows are crap, so i took off the nosecone and his right hand, and put a ball joint socket in both, with the actual ball attached to the front on the jet. His arm's now bending naturally, and slightly longer. Whichever part isn't being used stows where the hand normally goes: behind the cockpit. There's a pic at the bottom, though i'm not sure if that helps much.

    The other mods are all aesthetic, mainly. The peg that holds the halves of his forehead together i cut off, because they weren't going to clasp together anyways. Actually, that was the reason why i made this into Cyclonus and not Jetstorm: rabbit ears! I also put a slash in his left shoulder, and a bullet wound in his chest.

    An Inventive use of this mould- especially since you were even able to give him his classic "bunny ears" :)

    Looks nice man! I might try something like this using the Terradive mold. I think that mold scream "Cyclonus" more to me, but this works as well! Good job! Love that purple!
