    This was a commission done for a fellow member here on the boards. I took a different approach and wanted to do a unique custom that would surely stand out in his collection. This was originally supposed to be Ravage, but we agreed there were already 2 many Ravage alternators out there so I dreamed up a design that would work as a condor instead. So here's a G1 favorite with an Old-Skool twist... :cool: 

    Laserbeak just couldn't stand being the spy anymore, the "little guy" that's never supposed to be seen...Well all that changed with his new format, now he's tearin' up the city streets & raisin hell at the car shows!

    Here's a delightful little video of Laserbeak on my Facebook page!

    -Made with:

    -Revell 1:25 scale model kit
    -Energon Ravage head
    -ROTF Sideways legs
    -Lego Bionicle ball joints
    -styrene & ABS plastic

    amazing work man!....I'm really diggin what you came up with here. Loving the ability to go into the three wheel motion in alt mode.

    Only thing that kinda looks off to me, in bot mode, is the length of the "wings" but that's a very minor nitpick....and certainly nothing that would stop me from taking this for my own collection.

    I love old steel, love Alts, and Alt reshells are the cream of the crop....as I stated before, you are always outside the box man. Keep up the good work.

    Soundwave would definitely have to be a car-carrier, to hold ALL his minions!

    I love it, but for some reason it reminds me of the Gobots Zod.

    Awesome, awesome, AWESOME.

    Only fault I can find with this is the grill, though. It looks a bit silly sitting there right above his head; I think it might look better on his back. Would evoke G1 Laserbeak's cannons, as well.

    True, the bumper is substantial but it would've prompted an aesthetic sacrifice in car mode, so I went with this. If you look close in a couple of pics, I made a way to actually mount his original casseticon cannons on his shoulder joints, and they will actually fold back up inside with the wings. :cool:

    Fair enough then, and at least this way you still have a perfect transformation. :)  And ha, didn't even notice that! That's awesome!

    YOU are a madman! That's really cool. I like how it's a very gothic alt mode and the condor almost looks like a gargoyle perched! Brilliant!

    You win the Award For The Best Thing Ever. You win the AFTBTE!

    Seriously -- this is beyond creative and sSweet! I wish Has-bore-o was more creative with bot/alt modes like this. Nice job!
