    don't see a lot of love for the jump starters about, understandable, i was making my cosmos bash while reading a G1 comic when i seen them and the idea hit me.

    just a pair of tank tracks and g1 drills for twin twist and wings and 'cockpits' (i think) for topspin. I think they will look alot better when painted and the colours are G1.

    Very cool outside the box thinking. Maybe a couple of head modifications?

    When they are painted they will look a lot better.

    Yeah, nice idea; look forward to seeing how it goes. I agree with iDD, though, a head mod or two is definitely in order; I'm not sure about how it'd mork scalewise (I don't have Longview), but for some reason, I get the feeling that with the addition of a sculpted visor, Cyb Hot Shot's head would make a good update for Topspin.

    Also, I'm pretty sure those things at the front of Topspin aren't cockpits. I always thought of them more like some form of ram, or like the prongs on a forklift or the "bit" of a pneumatic drill (jackhammer).

    Ooh, and I'd definitely suggest adding some gubbinz to the tops of the vehicle modes, just to make 'em less sleek and smooth. If it's mostly added to the yellow section at the rear, with the transformation you've given them it should all wind up on the back anyway, so it shouldn't mess with the robot modes too much.

    I actually thought about doing this EXACT SAME THING myself - but I wanted them to be taller than C-Bumblebee in robot mode. :/ I'd consider bashing the chests of both guys onto the top of Longview there.

    Funny, this Longview MOLD has soooo many possibilities, all of them far better than the original idea.

    Someday I'll get around to my Samus/Samus' Ship crossover bash.

    These are very creative! An excellent use of the mold. I'll have to pop in here from time to time to see how these are going.


    That is also an excellent idea! I'd love to see that too. It'd be so neat if Hasbro had the rights to mario...
