    Hey guys, I just bought this guy from a fellow board member and he arrived yesterday, and since then, I haven't put him down. He's already very cool with no mods, but can be even better. I hated the fact that he had the blades permanently attached to his arms most of all. So I decided to fix this and a few other things.
    List of mods:
    -Removed blades from arms and moved them to the feet
    -Carved out hands and made them 5mm post compatible
    -Improved head articulation for a better combined mode
    -added missiles from hatchet (I mean, come on Hasbro, a bomber without bombs?)
    -Added 3 mm ports on wings and arms (for the missiles)
    -New blade, from sentinel ( I dyed the blade to match and added notches similar to his old blades)
    -moved "collar" forward (to cover the gap in normal and combined mode, and to be able to hide his face in jet mode)
    -Transforms back to normal jet

    Enjoy! C&Cs welcome!
    JET AND NORMAL ROBOT MODE PICS TOMORROW!
    EDIT: Couldn't take pics today because of rain. :(

    Great work! Nice idea about putting the blades/canopy sections on his feet. IMHO though, if you leave his skinny ankles tucked into his legs he'll look better.

    I made the blades on mine removable, but I'm going to have to do the 5mm-compatible thing, that's a great touch.

    Thanks!
    Funny how that happens... :lol 
    Thanks!
    Thanks!
    I haven't thought of folding the ankles in...
    You should try the hand mod, it really improves the figure, and he can hold almost any TF sword!
    Thanks!
