    For those who don't remember, I'd made a Shattered Glass Darkwing out of a Robots in Disguise 2015 Stormshot. The figure itself is pretty awesome, and I'm tempted to pick up a few more, for good reason.
    Original thread can be found here: Minor/Repaint: - Shattered Glass Darkwing (from RiD Stormshot)

    The original version, seen above, works decently with the concept of a Shattered Glass version of Darkwing. Sure, it's not the same mode, but I don't mind a different alt-mode. The head, though, just irked me. I'd chopped off the fringe, but it never quite looked right despite being the same color scheme. And then I realized something with some slight plastic shaving...

    He can totally become a Transector! And while the color and face may be a little off, Titans Return Brawn certainly has Darkwing's frown (SG or not). And it's the right head shape... good thing I have some spare plastic laying around.

    ...much better.

    The blue is the wrong shade, but it's something I can live with easily. The plastic for the visor comes from some old headset I found in an action figure pile that I didn't mind chopping it bits. I think it came from the old Aliens or Stargate figures back in the day.

    And here are some other small pictures...

    A head comparison shot, to see where the original came from, and what we got:

    The body, for reference, is the Titans Return Xort from the Highbrow figure. The face may now be on a Brawn body, but...

    He'd be a great Shattered Glass Enemy, with some help.
