    Ok, so its pretty prevalent that people combine 1 skystalker to the chest area of mindwipe (ROTF) and have the wings and fins act as either wings or armor for mindwipe. This looks pretty good.

    But then yesterday I was searching on the web and if you search in google on mindwipe and skystalker combination, you see that a user have used 2 skystalker on a mindwipe, essentially using skystalker's docking peg on mindwipe's shoulders (one on each shoulder) and then fold from there. This creates quite nifty shoulder armors, imo.

    Then it got me thinking: has anyone ever tried to combine 3 skystalker to mindwipe? I imagine one can go in the chest area with wings folded back, while 2 skystalkers can be shoulder armor. In my mind the theory works, but I don't have 3 skystalkers, I am currently looking for some to try but haven't yet. Anyone that have such tools to test out if the combination is

    1. feasible
    2. looks good

    ? Or opinions would be welcomed!

    Not to hijack your thread but if anyone needs a misb Mindwipe and moc Skystalker, I'm selling mine. Not seperating unless I have a buyer for both.

    Given how hard Skystalker was to find most places I don't know if many people have enough to try it. Sure can't just go out and pick a few up.

    I was troop building with them, so I may try the three-combo out later this evening.

    Skystalker, when transformed as Laserbeak, plugs into Mindwipe's forearm nicely and looks 'perched' there.

    Ebay:
    i wish hasbro would pull this shortpacking crap with BB or Prime just once.

    seriously, ii found 1 skystalker on ebay for 30 bucks- and i can't pay that kind of scratch for a scout.

    so as nifty-keen-gosh-willikers as this sounds, i won't be able to try this.

    and for the record, i am only getting sunspot *shudders* just so i can weep at missing out on skystalker. that is, if he ain't shortpacked...

    yeah I understand that, too skystalker is incredibly expensive right now, that's the problem. And with what Yaujita said, I am thinking maybe 5 Skystalker can go on mindwipe at once... but it'd make Mindwipe a aircraft carrier literally lol

    see, if you had to buy 3 it'd be 60+ shipping for... 3 scouts eh?

    I somehow want to blame Hasbro

    Blame distribution.
    I saw a total of six at retail. I own five, and got the other for a friend.
    Sunspot'll probably be easier to find, but the price of black spraypaint will jump since it's so friggin' ugly.

    I'll still blame Hasbro because they could have always released the figure later on in another wave.

    yeah, I saw that. I tried to give a lower offer or ask him to lower shipping. I don't need them mint, just loose, but no replies.

    I don't mind paying 20$ shipped. But its not 20$ shipped right now, most of the time it comes out to >30 shipped
