    I had such a fun time making my other Cassettebots, I decided I just had to make more. I posted a thread earlier asking for some advice on this mold, and after looking at that help, and about a dozen other molds, I decided that this one just gave off the most LBness.

    Not a ton of mods to this one. I switched his legs at the upper thighs to give him reverse joint knees. I swapped his wings to give him a more birdlike apprenece and give him a forward swept wing design in alt mode. The biggest mod was cutting off the cockpit right above the hinge and reattaching with a magnet to give him full head movement and made him a little beak that attaches that way as well.

    His blacks are Krylon Fusion satin black, Silvers are Krylon Xmetals converter, and the reds are the Xmetals on top of the previous. It gives off a nice candy effect that I really dont know how to take good pics off. Trying out my Airbrush for the first time (trying to get rid of some spray paints) The booster thrusters and forward guns are a graphite metalic.

    I have some plans for all the the Con Cassettebots, and back story for why some are going to be quite different in scale and design( racked my brain for a long time trying to avoid that) But gonna wait till the end to give it all out. Hope you enjoy and please leave me your comments and crits!

    Heres a pic showing head range of motion. Its not a super huge amount, but there is alot to get in the way, but its enough to get that bird, cocked to the side look.

    I like this concept. He could technically be a triple changer right? Or did he lose the bot mode. Either way I give you 10 out of 10 points for originallity. never would have occurred to me!:thumbs2:

    Thanks for the love! Yeah, he could have been a triplechanger easily, but I didnt want the arms getting in the way of his alt mode. I was going to take them all the way off, but it left some werid looking holes, so I left the part of the shoulders that flipped up on.
