    This looks like it may very well be your best project to date! I really hope you modify each limb so that they're very different from each other, though.

    Keep us posted! :thumb

    thanks everyone, i'm looking forward to sharing the updates with everyone.

    and SQ7, yes, the individual bots is my biggest challange to date. i want them distinguished and not portray the look of a seeker, if tat makes sense.

    just wait till they're all properly modified, guys. He's not the only one using the seeker mold for all 4 limbs... ...but after they're modified, and re-shelled, they'll look as you'd expect ;)

    i've pretty much have the limbs attached like i want them.

    anyone have any ideas on how to bulk up the legs a ad bit?

    and also, the plan right now is to take some small brass hinges and use for the wings, so they fold back instead of forwards. that should bulk up the sides a tad bit.

    Rather than trying to bulk up the lower legs have you considered trying to thin down the upper legs?

    Specifically the knee's they look huge. The original was always a bit skinny which I though suited a team of fliers.

    Looks very good so far.

    True, Superion's legs were a bit thin, but I really like the idea of having the wings fold back to bulk up the lower legs. This looks great so far!:thumbs2:

    thanks everyone.

    after i posted the update, i fiddled with the wings, and found my answer.

    when the wings are in place along with the missile launchers, the legs look great, imo. and when the feet are in place, it will pull everything together.

    TK: yes, i'll be modding the molds quite a bit.

    Ax23, thanks man. the elbow articulation is great. it's like the seeker mold was desinged to be an arm, lol.

    cant wait to start back working on him tomorrow.

    thanks for the input everyone

    have you thought of use the ramjet mold also, because with the wings folded that could bulk up the legs

    I... actually kind of like the smaller head. It alludes to the body having more bulk than it may actually have.

    This is looking real good. Can't wait to see how the individual Aerialbots are done.

    Awesome job so far. I was wondering when these would start to show up, heh. Nice moves with the torso setup, looking forward to more man. And the same mold for each limb works for me. That mold is especially suited to combiner limbs because of the telescoping legs and squared off shape...very G1 block-bot but with great articulation to boot. Gogogo!

    It looks very G1, overall good looking but its quite slim.
    I wish it looks more MUSCULAR like.
