    Hey guys I really like the new HFTD Tomahawk mold but I decided to use the head on another custom so I decided to pop on one of my favorite head molds (but not one of my favorite bot modes) and turn him into a new seeker. At first I was gonna go full on Skywarp on him but then he wouldn't fit too well in my classics display.

    The head is from Cybertron Thundercracker. I noticed there were a few touch ups I needed too make after the pics too. No alt mode because not much has changed except a few con symbols. Oh and the head does not fit in the cockpit even after I shaved off the sides of the head. Maybe I'll mod the inside of the cockpit and update this thread

    Anyone have ideas for a sweet con-like name? I feel like Tomahawk is too good guy sounding. I'm thinking like Blackout after the energon combiner copter or something like Cutter or Slice because of the scissor type weapon on his arm. Maybe Darkwarp or Blackhawk (no pun intended)

    amazing how a new head changes the look completely!!!
    i would say he would make a great "spinister"!(not a seeker,but it would fit the mold nicely,just have to add a mouth plate to him!)

    I keep hearing 'Dorkwarp' in my mind's ear, because of how the 'a' in 'warp' sounds.

    Mate, I'm quite familiar with this mold, and I see you will have a plenty of issues to fit the new head inside for altmode, I think the head still needs some serious bashing for that matter. (Although the head looks really good!)

    About the custom, great idea you had, but if you allow me to tell ya, I'd like to give you some suggestions:

    1 - Stick the decepticon simbol on his chest (upper cockpit) instead of his lower parts. That adds some more "I'm a freaking deceptacreep" effect on him.

    2 - Paint his feet the same violet you painted the sholders and head and then fold em up making the rear landing gears his actual feet, they will look smaller and you will need some extra patience to pose him up, but that will add a very cool look for his legs by getting rid of his chiken-like legs look. (I did it to mine)

    3 - By having his back wings in open angled position you will give him a very cool aspect too, just like the seekers.

    That's just what I think would make he look even better ;)

    He looks great. I think Spinster (as Chansformers suggested) is a good fit. :)

    Thanks for the comments and input guys. I think I'll pass on Spinister, just not similar enough.

    The names I'm digging right now are Cutdown, Linchpin, and Blackout (even though the name is a bit hard to use when we have movie Blackout and TFA Blackout being kind of far off from what I have here)

    That boxy, "peg-head" reminds me a lot of Vortex!

    My only suggestion would be to make the colors on the head a little more cohesive with the rest of him, right now, it sticks out a bit too much.

    Just my opinion, of course, but I do like where it's headed.
