    This project was my way of expanding my animated collection. I've been working on this on and off for about a year now. I'm not entirely satisfied with it and it's not 100% perfect, but I've gotten it to a point where I can take it off my to finish list. I started off with an Armada Megatron and did the leg mod with a Cybertron Jetfire. Used parts and pieces from several Animated figures which included Voyager OP, Starscream, Leader Bulkhead and Ultra Magnus. The head is from a Bionicle figure and the main turret is from an Ironman figure. I don't know if the overall aesthetic screams Animated, but for now it will have to do. I may go back and change some things to the bot mode in the future, but I am digging the alt mode for now. Comments and criticisms always welcomed.

    Sorry for the crappy pictures.

    It's actually got a little more of a Prime vibe to it. But I like!

    Doesn't really fit the Animated aesthetic in my opinion, but it's still a sweet custom. :thumb

    Neat idea.
    Always loved Tank Fallen.
    Though, in my honest opinion, the head and turret kinda look like they're floating there.
    Can you bulk up whatever they're connected to?

    Great idea and I dig the minimal paint job with the orange.
    I wouldn't call it Animated though as it really doesn't fit it. A different set of arms and I would love this.

    I think the Jetfire legs actually look less animated than the stock ones.

    I love the combination of the movie look and the g1 look, especially how the head transforms fr tank mode :D  very sleek.

    Thanks for all the comments and criticisms. When I had finally put this guy all together I saw the flaws that you guys have mentioned, but like I said I got him to a point where I could get him off the work bench. The main problem I had was trying to find Animated pieces that would work for the figure. The Animated line doesn't have much to choose from for a figure this size and still give the articulation I need for transformation. If anybody has any suggestions to replace the arms and legs I'd be happy to replace them.

    i like the overall design except for the head,but then i have never been a fan of the movie design for the character.given the overall bullet shape of the head i would have resculpted it and made his trademark grilled mouthplate and head crest
