    Kup's targetmaster partner Recoil. Made from Undertow's PCC minicon of who's name I have forgotten. Repainted in the basic black and silver targetmaster colors with brass detailing on the chest.

    I added a peg into it that is removable thanks to Jin's silly straw 5mm discovery.

    In the chest, where the female minicon port is. It is removable as he said, so in the robot mode pic, he removed it to avoid having the robot look like he was cosplaying as Warpath.

    VERY nice! I wish Recoil could have gotten more fiction, he always struck me as an interesting character^^


    ...
    Also, I love your Rush icon^^

    Undertow's minicon is named Waterlog.

    Hm... clip the wings off... and I think this works better than repainting Airlift into Recoil (which is what TakaraTomy did for the United line).

    There is. Jin Saotome had a thread in RC only a week or so ago. You basically just cut up Silly Straw. However, and actual tutorial for creating Recoil here, i'm not aware of.

    Perfect!! Nice colors on him too. I'm glad the straw find works for everyone. I snagged undertow's buddy and will be removing the wings for this mod.

    There is a screw on the back of Waterlog and I think if you remove it the wings and guns assembly comes off making it easier for you to snip the wings and just have the guns. Then you should be able to just screw the back pack with guns back on.

    And I didn't know his head could move till last either. Just fyi I'm throwing out there.
