    I loved the Tomahawk figure but didn't feel like he had a place character-wise in my collection. I ended up trying to remake TFA Megs in more of a "Classics" look. Used a homemade cast of the Cybertron jungle planet Megs head, TFA Meg's legs and cannon (with a mod using TFA Swindle's cannon), Neo Shifters parts for connection points.

    Needs a few finishing touches but I see the potential there.

    Cool concept, great build! I can tell that you went to a lot of effort, and it's an impressive bit of workmanship!

    How'd I miss thiss'n? I like it! Definitely a good idea switching out the legs. I thought of using the Shockwave cannon for mine as well but I didn't want to part with it. Cool custom, Vid!

    I like how the TFA legs fit under there. Now fix that head and give him a better paint job and he'll be excellent.
