    Behold : Revenge of the Fallen Flywheels
    And some other shots of my moderately modified ROTF Thrust.
    The canopy was conjoined and the wings flipped side to side.

    That's a pretty cool idea and I think it looks great but I would think that using ROTF figures would really open up the possibility for a modern update. It's almost like Thrust is just riding a skiff. Not a bad job at all, I just think that there's a ton of potential here for a real mind blowing custom!

    It's not a "real" custom. I did just set Thrust on Desert Brawl's lower half. But the Idea is there.

    Either way, it's still pretty cool. If I had come across it not knowing i would've said "Hey look! Flywheels!"

    Yeah, I think this is a really good idea in the right direction. I'd like to see Flywheels with the Thrust and Brawl molds used similarly like Prime and Jetfire combine. :)

    Dude, Duocons for the win! I totally get where you're going with this. What I'd love to see is instead of him riding on top of Brawl, perhaps you can figure out how Brawl's lower half can be used as legs and Thrust can be used as the top half.

    Great responses. It really wasn't a custom and I don't plan on making one. But if anyone else wants to run with the Idea please do.

    It would be cool if you made a rail that held Thrust in robot
    and vehicle mode on top of Brawl.
