    Hello everyone, I'm new to these forums. For your viewing pleasure is a recent project, Topspin. He was made from a knock-off Robot Masters Star Saber. Those familiar with the mold know that the whole brain master function could have posed as a hinderance with its absence causing a gaping chest hole and all.

    All in all, I really like the way he turned and I hope you guys enjoy him.

    Simple, for the blaster I used a vinatage G1 Topspin gun. I found it at a flea market for 25cents so I figured, eh, why not?

    I do, but I'm currently trying to finish an Impactor. THat's been taking up all of my customizing time really.

    Also, thanks everyone for the hospitality. It's nice they still do that in forums these days.

    Don't worry once we get to know you better, we'll start taking potshots at you every chance we get. That's how you know we care. Look forward to seeing the rest of your work.

    Love it; very clever choice of mould. Little suggestion if you're up for taking it further: How about adding extra mini-wings on the shoulders? If you can rig them so they rotate, they can homage those on his G1 form in robot mode, and function as canards in vehicle mode so he's got more stabilisation.

    Welcome to the Radicons!

    Thanks for liking it. I actually had wings on his shoulders(for the exact reasons you mentioned) but decided that I just didn't like the look of it. Maybe if I found a different set of wings it would look better.
