    I wanted to make a larger blitzwing and these were the bits in my parts bin that jumped out at me.

    I really like WFC styling and wanted to make this in that vein, also I know blitzwing has his sword so I came up with using the rocket pod as a shield.

    Also has light up effect in sword, articulated hands, full 360 movement of the missile launcher and up/down pivot, balljoint waist and Alclad paintwork.

    Full set of pics are here - WFC Blitzwing pictures by Kenjopops - Photobucket

    Enjoy and as always C&C most welcome

    ps. he will be on eBay soon
    Thanks

    Nice! The jet mode's a little weak, but it's Cybertronic, so there. I love how his missile rack is used as a shield, but not as a launcher. Bot mode is great. Nice proportions.

    Thanks, Blitzwing's no wimp so I didnt mind him being a bit on the large side :) 

    There is another configuration for the jet mode with the legs tucked underneath facing the back but I like this way better.
    I thought 'this guy has a badass sword' so to me isnt afraid of some close quarters violence so why not give him a shield too? Cheers

    Thankyou, yeah there is universe silverbolt, dropshot, and energon megatron. Also I used alternators primes hands and forearms to extend the existing silverbolt ones just to make the proportions a bit more in tune.

    Thanks man glad you like him, I listed the donor bots above, I also used a big balljoint from a KREO transformer at the waist.

    All of the above and also alternators prime for the hands and forearm extensions.
    Just for anyone that would like to own him the eBay auction is now up and running.

    Even though Cybertronian alt modes are known to be more liberal in their designs than their earth counterparts, I have to say that both modes are looking kind of weak. It just resembles a hodge-podge of parts. However, the robot mode is wonderfully done. Excellent work on the LED sword.

    Nice! I like that he's huge! And because he's in cybertronian modes he can get away with having exotic altmodes. Good idea! :D

    Looking good, I love the Plane mode despite what some people have said, gives it Non Earth Like Aircraft look, Too often people try to make space ships look like something that would be seen over at your local Airport or military base... this is unique and nice, gives it that alien feel to it. Bot Mod is beast, and i might not be to fond of the tank mode, but then again i fall into the trap that i just mention about planes expecting something earth like, but when i rejusted my thinking i believe it works well as a moble rocket launcher so we have blitzwing as bot/spaceship/mobile rocket launcher instead of the bot/plane/tank. great job mate, my only one thing i would suggest is trying to unite the colors instead of jump, like nearlly all tan, browns, sand colors or all black and purple type colors...but that is just my opinion keep up the good work

    you are a tough guy to please!
    Thanks for the comments on the bot mode though, that as always was my main focus.
    I feel that, as far as I know, there is no concept art for WFC blitzwing so took some liberties which still enabled me to have the good bot mode.
    Hopefully I have something in the works you will like haha

    He is a big guy.... a couple inches taller than silverbolt.
    Cheers

    This is what I was thinking too, an earth car may not look the same as a WFC car so likewise why should the jet or tank? THey dont have pilots right?
    On the colours usually I shade and highlight the crap out of everything but this time wanted a clean shiny paintjob

    Pleased you like him, thankyou

    I'm sorry if I come off as overly critical. I like your work and if there's one thing you have over me it's your ability to churn out completed projects. Feel free to do the same to me sometime, haha. I have a Liokaiser that could use some good C&C.
