    I had been looking for a helicopter that personified one of the few toys that I had and liked as a kid from the 1988 series of Transformers. Spinister and his dual Targetmasters were one of the last TF toys I received before setting the line to the side to start chasing girls and putting all of the extra money I had into heavy metal albums. His color scheme was always really goofy, but somehow it made his bio of a "silent warrior" all the more fitting to me. Once I saw the "Skyhammer" mold from the new DOTM line, I knew I had my base figure! I painted him up in all of his garish beauty. The only mods being the magnets added to ports to help accept the 2 modified mini-cons/Targetmasters. Singe and Hairsplitter differ a bit from their G1 toys, as they now mount to the "gauntlets" of Spinister instead of being hand held. They can also mount to the wings of the copter mode for super-duper, armed to the teeth action! Thanks for looking!

    NICE thanks for doing a proof-of-concept on this one ( ;)  ), I'm now sold that this is the best base for Spinister we currently have out there!

    BEAUTIFUL work!

    Good lord, nothing "silent warrior" about those colours, is there :D  Great work, excellent finish - and the unfussy but excellent mod with the Targetmasters attaching to the arms really lifts it.

    Spinister was one of the last Gee Won transformers I remember having as a kid and also one of my favs. You sir have done him justice, well done.

    Great work !

    Although... if I go into picky mode....I have to say I'd rather see different colour ratios :

    - less pink
    - clear/translucent turquoise canopy, instead of the clear yellow.
    - more actual blue, not turquoise/teal ( cockpit )
    - more purple ( the arms could have been purple instead of pink )
    - turquoise face, instead of metallic.
