    hidi ho folks! thought i'd share this kitbash i'm working on in my spare time. i've wanted to kitbash my own decepticon fancharacter "blade" for a long time. almost more so than my namesake character beamer. i finally got enough parts, tools, and patience to do it, so now i'm actually working on it. i'll post more pics as i finish it, for now, here's my little digibash (i'm a horrible digibasher) of what the figure will look like in the end (in the corner is of course my own drawing of blade).

    obviously, i'm using a tfc thundercracker and just making a few modifications. so it's not a real complicated kitbash, but i've only bashed 1 figure before (and omg... it sucked). instead of giving him a cape like the drawing, i'm going to paint underside of his wings red... got the idea from the way drivaar did blade in his fancomic and thought it looked cool and was a lot more practical. other than a new paint job, i have to give TC another normal arm, remove his hip wings, widen his chest (which will work by using TC's hip wings), and modify the head a little bit. shouldn't be too hard.

    anywho... here's the pic.

    probably. i think i might swipe some stuff from my mobile suit in action figures to give him some weapons. the main weapon he needs to have is a badass looking sword... it's a big part of his character. one thing that will be nice is that he'll at least have a place to carry it. the other arm on thundercracker will be perminantly attatched to his back and emptied of missle launcher inside giving my bash a sort of backpack for his weapon(s)

    not much else to show yet. here's the pices i removed so far and used elsewhere on his body.. plus what the toy looks like with another arm. (still need to reverse his hand)

    Nicely done so far Beamer- have you done much new fan-art? I haven't seen you around in a long while it seems... I guess I should check your site out and find out for myself.

    sorta. if i post fan art, i usually post here and on deviant art now and less on the other board(s).
    i have had some other projects occupying most of my art time lately though. hehe. so i haven't had much time on the side to do fan art.

    anywho, thanks, man!
