    Hey all,

    RM here and just a few minutes ago I got the bright idea to do
    a Superion Kitbash of some of the Universe 2.0 figs,now starting
    with Silverbolt he doesn't need much customizing except arm holes
    and slight feet mods,and the Superion Head.

    Next we have Universe Acid Storm which looks near perfect for
    Air Raid,and with his transformation being almost the same he will
    be perfect.I might also take my other 2 Acid Storms and do Skydive
    and fireflight,but they will take more modding to them.

    As for Slingshot,I am unsure who I can use,as he is the most
    unique with his rounded wings.So will have to think about him.But
    if anyone has any suggestions let me know.

    Also I plan on starting on him this weekend and will post pics of
    my progress.Finally I wanted to be different from others on here
    instead of doing Menasor or Devastator,and to me Superion was
    one of my faves from G1. Thanks all and comps and critz are
    welcome.Later all.

    sorry, but Ican't offer you any suggestions, as I don't want to give away any of my innovations until I have my own work done. :)

    Actually reminds me of the original toy. He always had extremely long legs compared to all the rest of the combiners.

    Can mod mod Acidstorms' wings so they fold back? It looks like the leg clearance is gonna be a problem if they don't.
    Good luck with this!

    I've been giving Superion a lot of thought myself. Looking forward to seeing how you mod everyone. Although I like Silverbolt, I was thinking about using Classics Jetfire when I try my hands at one only because I liked the way his legs collapse to act as Superion's Knees. I don't know if Silverbolt's does that or not. Keep up the good work!

    got a few things that i'll be using that'll make fireflight, skydive, and slingshot a bit easier than scratchbuilding. I dont mind sharing them, probably cause any idea i may have probably wont be as useful or innovative as ptitvite or redline.

    They're all basically deluxe sized, and will probably spare alot of tinkering.

    That'll make modding a lot easier if they are the right size. Good finds!
