    I finally picked this guy up on clearance, and while I loved his over all design, I couldn't stand his head and his huge robo-boner.

    After a lil bit of tinkering I have this guy sitting around

    [​IMG]

    I removed one pin from the nosecone, and popped off the underpiece. this allows for the visible cockpit. Ive also done some trimming around his thigh-balljoints but is not visible here.

    From just looking at him I'm getting some sort of drone or gaurd vibe off of him.

    [​IMG]

    I have not decided on what to do with the forward fins.

    I love the profile of this fig with them folded out.

    [​IMG]

    But I have started thinking of thinning out the forearms, and folding the fins in to make robo-boobies, and then trying to find a more femine head, would make for a decent Slipstream maybe?

    Thanks for taking a look and any ideas/improvement/crits are more than welcomed!

    I think a Slipstream would look nice in this mold. I do like the Depth Charge idea also (I believe someone did one not long ago from this mold).

    Do Jetstorm, the vehicle mode looks like a good update of the Vehicon general.

    First off where is that head from? Which leads to, I've been slowly doing a Space Case from this mold (would be done if not for chipping). That head would almost be perfect for him.

    Using that mold for slipstream is ideal. I'm in the middle of one now.

    No need for a Space Case repaint, we're getting one from DOTM, wait till THAT one comes out to do a universe repaint!

    So what to do with this one? Slipstream!!

    This guy looks pretty cool! I don't think you need to change much just add some paint to make the head match the body.

    By the way what is the Gun in your first pic from?

    Thanks for all the great ideas everyone, and now that ive imagined a few of them I wish I had picked up a few more of this mold.
    I still dont have a concrete plan in mind,fan-characters arent out of the question, so keep those ideas flowing!

    That head is from real gear High Score from the first movie line, and the rifle is from the Fansproject Bruticus add on kits. Im really surprised no one had answered those yet^^

    Ill try and get an update just as soon as I can, thanks!
