    Silverbolt had the most dramatic changes out of all of the Aerialbots. His head is made from an Energon Prowl head. His face was nearly identical to Silverbolt's cartoon face. I created the "helmet" with various scrap parts from other TF customs. The shoulders were made with Mini-con Crosswise leg joints, Energon Stormjet arm flaps, Energon Steamhammer elbows, Energon Prowl hands, and the shoulder and wrist sections from an original Silverbolt. The chest was made out of various bootleg and legit transformer parts. The thighs came from Energon Stormjet, the knees from Alternators Rollbar's wrists, and the shines are the original Silverbolt legs bulked up with bootleg Silverbot parts. Silverbolt's gun transforms into Superion's gun via some Mini-con Sledge and Wideload parts.
    The Autobot logos are from Reprolabels and the window stickers are customized by me because I had nothing us to use for them.

    I love how Silverbolt appeared in the cartoon and the original toy just never made me happy enough. While my Silverbolt certainly isn't perfect, he's much closer to what I've always wanted out of him.

    Fantastic work as always! Interesting work on the chest piece - I can't help thinking it ought to become something while he's in vehicle mode... :p  And the transforming gun is ingenious.

    Regarding his name (you did say "discuss" ;) ), Bluestreak's not blue or a streak, either. :p  It comes not from his colour and altmode, but from his ability to strip electrons from the air as he flies, store them in the capacitor in his chest, and fire them through his nosecone as a silver bolt of lightning.

    I'm happy you decided to post these. Excellent work.

    I saw this pic before the Superion thread and I thought for a second that it was a gallery for Classics 2.0 Silverbolt.

    He didn't, he was saying he saw this thread's thumbnail before he saw there was a superion thread and mistook it for a gallery of the upcoming universe silverbolt :lol

    Out of all of the Aerialbot customs you've made, this is my favorite! All of the modifications you've done to him are SO excellent and SO well done! After I finally got to own this guy when I got back into collecting, I shared in your original disappointment with this toy.

    GREAT job man. This is one of my favorite G1 customs EVER. :thumb

    Thanks to you all!

    Satomi: It honors me, if only for a second, that someone could confuse any of my works with an offical product :) 

    Ptitvite: You are special!

    Superquad: I'm glad you think he's well sculpted. He certainly turned out better than I could imagine.
