    UPDATED 01/09/2008 (New bot mode pics page 3 New alt mode pics pg 4)


    I've been wanting to do this one since I first read STORMBRINGER, and I've been working on a full set of Wreckers, and here's the first of the set. He's still in the painting stage, but weapons have been set, modding is just about complete, and all that's really left is drying, detail and reassembling. So here's some of the pics I have so far.

    Sorry for the crappy pic, just wouldn't focus.

    Here's a mockup using my energon Tidalwave

    Update's a coming, just a soon as he dries.

    We'll here's my update, he's not done yet but getting there. Still needs a lot of detail work, finish with the head/neck, and weapons, but I think you can get the general feel for what I was going for.
    I'm still debating on wether to chose grey or white for the pack. White might break up the almost monotone color scheme, but might stick out to much also. CC is appreciated.

    Sweet! I've been wanting to do one of these (Broadside from Tidal Wave, though not the Stormbringer version) since I saw the one the guy at FREESTYLE did. Can't wait to see how this turns out!

    Also, that's a Jetfire helmet, right? I have one put aside for exactly the same reason! That head is a perfect fit for Broadside... it's awesome.

    Where'd you get the battleaxe? It looks familiar.

    My first reaction was "that's gonna be to big" but then I remembered who it was and it's perfect! I always liked Broadside. Even though it's still a little silly that a aircraft carrier turns into a plane.
    But that is gonna look bada$$ when you have that painted and dyed up. Nice. Can't wait to see it finished.

    The head is actually a cut up Superion head, and the axe was originaly to be used with my first custom Breakline,
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=135462
    and it came from a ko version of whirl along with some cool rifles. I felt it would work better with Broadside, due to the original being armed with one.

    I also have begun painting for Scoop and have begun modding a twin twist and topspin which is a bit harder than I expected.
    I've also been procuring items i need for Whirl, Roadbuster and Sandstorm. Course, I might leave Roadbuster as is, considering how much he already looks like his Stormbringer ver.
    I'll also use Botcon Springer for the set, mainly cuz I love how he looks.

    Well I'll be... it IS a Superion head!

    Looks good though... I totally thought it was a modified Classics Jetfire helmet. :)

    Sweet paint job man!! Great results! I love it!
    If I'm not mistaking Broadside was as big as the combiners right?

    just a stupid question first: Isn't broadside a triple changer? I can't remember.

    All in all, very nice work. Where is that head from? Oh never mind just saw it.

    looking nice so far man. if you think white's too strong a contrasting color you could always go for a really really light grey as well. The glare on the figure in your pictures is just the right shade, even.

    Nice work so far. I've never actually gotten my hands on Tidal Wave, but there aren't any better contenders, and you could probably rearrange his different pieces into something resembling Broadside's third mode. Here's hoping you hold off on giving him a wash, or at least make it a very subtle one, because he'd look good with that flat sheen. Are you going to give him a more comic-accurate rifle, or use the KO ones?

    And I can't wait to see Roadbuster! Guy's always been one of my favorites.

    Yep. Aircraft carrier to some type of fighter jet. Completely implausible for his old toy :) . In Stormbringer they just show his jet-mode, and it pretty much looks like it was cut from the ole' tetrajet mold.

    That looks REALLY nice, but I agree with redline. A light gray or off-white would be better than the pure while.

    Funny thing is, I have a Tidal-Wave coming my way via eBay, and I'm planning on doing Broadside as well :D

    NICE!

    Lookin' good! I agree it needs a lighter colour to break up the grey. White or off-white would look good I think.
