    Got requested to make this guy awhile back and finally got around to finishing him.

    Roto here was made from a HFTD Tomahawk with a custom casted head by spoonman. The legs are from Thundercracker and modded to attach to the choppers undercarriage. Roto has about 4 shades of blue going for him and was painted to look as close to the original as possible.

    Thanks for looking,
    Shinobi

    Excellent work! One of the best RS I've seen by far. This head really brings the perfect LSOTW vibe.

    Nice homie. Do the legs just fold up underneath or come off? Either way, this is very impressive.

    The legs fold and attach to the choppers under carriage. You can see the thrusters in the pics.

    Thanks for the comments all!

    What did you use to take the fins off the seekers legs, how did you take the blades off and what paints did you use?
