    So Skyquake was the Decepticons unearthed ally, well meet the Autobots newly risen warrior/scientist- Skyfire!

    When Megatron finally gains control of a working space bridge and transports his hordes of followers through interdimensional time travel to conquer the earth once and for all. They fall to earth in balls of flames destroying anything they land on, and after landing, continue to wreak havoc and mayhem. All seems bleak for the Autobots and humankind until Ratchets discovery of a new Autobot homing beacon sends Optimus and crew out to Antarctica. There, deep within the now melting Ice from a crater formed by one of the fallen Decepticons, Wheeljack spots a familiar friend buried for centuries. The autobot Skyfire awakes!

    Made from a classics mirage, gen. thundercracker, hftd breacher, shapeways deluxe SS kit by FB83, and a chara works 1/144 super valkyrie. The booster rockets are detachable from the backpack, and the jet engines are removable from the wings as well. The forearm armor is also removable for alt. mode. Ben working on this guy non-stop today, so I'm just posting the pics I have now, alt. mode shots wil be up in a few days hopefully. Comments are always welcome, Enjoy folks!

    Great work. Almost a pan-continuity look.

    I always thought the formula for Prime customs should be no (nose+rounded thighs/square upper-arms).

    If you could round off those thighs and get rid of that nose it would be the icing on the already excellent cake.

    I would get rid of the nose, other than that this is really good.

    Thanks! Makes a great jet, just wait and see!
    Thanks again. Well, i guess I need to add more putty to the nose piece! Several comments on it mention that, so I may do that. I had added a small amount to make it blend in with the helmet to make it spartan-esque in appearance. Even painted it white. Ah well, it happens:( 

    Nose? oh well.....
    Thanks!
    I like the alt. mode as much or better than the bot mode:) 
    Thanks guys!
    Again, tried to remedy that, but guess it didn't work. May fix again....Thanks though:)

    that's pretty slick. would like to see a lil color on the chest area there to break up some of the white, but that's just me....doesn't take anything away from the custom itself.

    always been a fan of these customs, but I think yours is the first to be a Skyfire and use the armor and fast packs.....having said that, I'm REALLY looking forward to alt mode.
