    My take on Slipstream along with her minions.

    I used Fakebusker's badbabebot head 1.5 in transparent detail, a Space Case plane parts, Terradive's tailfins, shoulders, and legs, and a pair of Treadshot A1's null rays cut down a bit. I popped off the canopy to remove the opaque yellow paint. I also made it so the nosecone stays down in bot mode, and drilled holes in the forearms for the null rays. The lightpiping is excellent
    Fakebusker did a great job on this head, I used a red sharpie on the eyes.

    I had to get another Space Case to finish Slipstream since the first one was damaged due to the weaker transparent plastics and my slightly hamfisted efforts to remove the paint off the front wings. The red and silver paint used on Space Case really didn't want to come off. Also he suffered damage to his chest and one of the hinges on his back. I went ahead and made his nosecone stay down as well in bot mode since it look weird with just the nosecone up without the side wings.

    I used Space Case's legs, shoulders, and tailfins to reassemble a Terradive to use as another one of Slipstream's Heralds.

    Also I was able to get a good deals on a few Sunspots so I made a few Drones for Slipstream's army. I named them Sunspot, Psy-bat, Psy-wave, and Kittstalker. I'd still like to get a Skystalker and another Sunspot to make a couple more of these.

    For Sunspot I didn't like all the yellow parts in his robot mode so I dyed them
    darker (almost black) with purple RIT dye and added some accents with a black Sharpie.

    For Psy-bat I just placed him in purple RIT dye and that was it.

    For Psy-wave I also placed him in the purple RIT dye (after trying to get him to take blue dye and not succeeding) then I removed his axes and spray painted his plane mode blue and painted his face metallic blue. And added accents with a black Sharpie.

    For Kittstalker I actually have already posted about him in this thread:

    As always, let me know what you guys think.

    Here's a few close-ups of the head. Sorry but my camera is old and not that graet at taking close-ups. I did file down the neck and drilled the hole a bit deeper to get a better range of movement. Before the neck went all the way down and it only had side to side movement. Last pic shows abit of her lightpiping.

    I hate texting short hand, it's dumb. But yes I know I need to upgrade my camera, if only I had more money to be able to do that. Sigh. I have another camera but it takes even worse pictures on the macro setting.
