    since thielmj aced me with his thunderwing using the same mold I was working with, I figured I'd post my WIP

    This started as an Upgrade kit but I've moved on to rendering the kits now (not this one)

    ADDED : 5/30/2012

    Parts list:
    the main body is an unmodified Gen Thunderwing

    the arm gauntlets are part Animate Starscream/part Animated Jazz arms

    The legs are from Cybertron Vector Prime, with Seaspray feet

    the wings, ultra mode arms , and nose cone are from VOGAYER (important) Energon 2-pack Megatron. the Leader version is HUUUUUUGE

    the pretender core bot is actually a safegaurd minicon that I randomly decided to articulate years ago, and had no use for. After seeing theimj's use of the E.megs nosecone I'm going to reshell it over the minicon.

    The ultra mode breastplate is from Energon Slugslinger.

    I still need to find suitable Ultra mode claws...

    So I tried making the legs, but that isn't easy... I'm gonna put my try at this on hiatus until this is done so I can see more detail.

    Wow... I'm really struck by how, in spite of mixing parts from totally difference size classes, the proportions still sort of work with that original Thunderwing body as the core. Nice.

    I want to say thanks to Dak for his masterpiece Stormbringer TW. without his work I doubt I would have gotten this far. He also encouraged me at the start of this project.

    I added the current parts list to 1st post.

    Wow... very neat idea... is that the a leader or Voyager Megatron being used for the power suit? I have a junker Leader Megs I found a while back... this would be an interesting way to use it...

    As is... this looks frickin awesome.
