    Been away for a bit trying to get some serious work finished so I can fill orders that have been coming in. Here is a project I did in between commissions. WINDCHARGER in TF: PRIME style! Using a TFP Cliffy, I chopped all the horns, made a "helmet" and added some paint to the legs. To make him stand apart from Cliffjumper I changed his torso a bit. I removed the false headlights and added false doors and painted the chest grey. I also added Windchargers signature rear window louver as well as painted the rest of the windows black. It's on ebay now so tell a friend!

    Similar treatment with a different paint job will yield an "official" Tailgate for the Primeverse. After all, they used Cliff's model for the scenes where the ill-fated 'Bot was shown. Hehe.

    That said... very cool. The face bugs me (CJ's PRID looks so cranky)... but that's not a big deal I guess. Great job with such a small set of changes.

    As someone who attempted a Tailgate, this blows mine out of the water. I wish my figure had a different head and modded chest.

    Look what you've DONE!!

    I totally wanted to do this with Prime Cliffjumper, but I don't have the RID version yet. Glad to see it's actually workable (awkward with the FE version, since it's not a false hood on his chest). I love it! :thumb 

    Too bad there wasn't a way to incorporate the flip-out blasters from the FE version.

    I remember talking about this with SMOG about modding this into that. You did this perfectly.
