    Vehicon General Complete...

    Updated on Pg2

    I don't have a name for him yet...
    I still have to paint him up, and add some details, but the main construction is done.
    Enjoy mates:

    Powerplay? I like some of the other suggestions you've gotten (Sky-Claw, Slayer, Vice Grip).

    I recognize the main body, but unfortunately (for me) I don't recognize the nose of the vehicle mode or the robot head. What are they from?

    ^This.
    It would suit both his physical appearance and the typical Vehicon General's personality.

    I really like this. It's looks like a Hasbro made Vehicon.

    I also agree with name Vice Grip! It suits the character design.

    Here's a small update as I finished the added parts to make him more complete (added the lasers and the wings on the back)...

    And the Jetstorm homage shot ( ;P )

    As for names, so far some great suggestions :) 
    I'm looking for something that would be conducive to his size (as I would imagine he would be larger than Jetstorm but not as large as Tankor), but also that he's a jet and as such he would be fast... maybe something with Space operations (Megs didn't have any space vehicons).

    Excellence.

    I feel something... more should be going on with the lower body, but the overal shape and proportions are awesome!

    the formula is as such:
    1-Head and Pink "box" in jet mode are from a junked Vipre II figure from the Sega game Virtual-On.
    2-upper Body and Arms are from Energon Bulkhead's "assault pack".
    3-lower Body aka the Nose section is from TF movieverse version of Wingblade(or Galaxy/Cybertron WingSabre).
    4-the turquoise Wings are from a Zoid pterosaur, as are a few other parts I just added to the figure.
    5-the golden Wings (folded in Jet mode and extended in Bot mode on his back), are from a Zoid Blade Liger(I believe that's the name of that version... so many damned Liger variants in Zoids).
    6-the rest of him is made-up of small Gundam parts (as in his centre Chest section), and Zoid weapons and "vents".
    Hope that Helps/Clarifies mate :) 

    Thanks mate.
    I added some more details to his lower body/leg-tail/jet nose, I think it helps some more to what you are referring to. I will post some more pics later today. Thanks for the suggestion, cheers.

    Dont know bout you,but he would do as a decent "Human alliance" Diablon.

    [​IMG]

    He kind bears some minor similarities. but hey,i would like to see a energon bulkhead retooling to homage Hot Shot/Big Foot Mechs,that and maybe a little Abraham Tower/G.U.N Commander minifigure,but that be abit too much... that and im sure it will not happen.

    Here's that Update I promised :) 
    I added some more turquoise parts to the nose section of the air/spacecraft mode (secondary leading canards, and prow), and again to the Bot's waist. Enjoy:

    It's one of the final bosses from the game "shadow the hedgehog" basically its the "dark side" boss,he mostly floats around,firing forhead lazers and activating antimatter fields every once in a while. you also fight sonic the hedgehog at the same time in that fight,he also haves the "shielded until he attacks" kind of boss,its also piloted by the G.U.N Commander. i kinda picked him mostly because the design of the kitbash reminds me so much of it. that and well,it would look quite cool combined with energon bulkhead (or some other voyager-sided heli transformer),of course adding the commander himself would be a bonus.

    who's this guy

    but like i said,it would be more of a suggestion then a possibility.
