    The next of my Classics/Universe commissioned Wreckers is Rotorstorm!

    Although he is painted in 3 different shades of blue, they are not as apparent as the IDW character version. Like the actual original Rotorstorm toy, I wanted to keep his helicopter blue more matching and use darker blues rather than aqua or teal. I did give him the light pink colors for some IDW in the mix too though.
    He got a new metallic paint job and some extra firepower too.
    It wasn't hard to give Rotorstorm some nice firepower since he already has missiles and chain guns on the wings, so I just gave him the signature big twin guns that also mount like the original under the choppah wings, and a twin blaster that pegs to the helicopter front or under a wing in bot mode.
    Modded the head and clipped off 2 of the Tomahawk figure blades for a more authentic look.

    If you missed Roadbuster, here he is- http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radic...eckers-roadbuster-super-armed-chug-style.html

    looks great! but not so chug style in my opinion.
    if you wanna make him less movie like, you should change the lower legs. or at least make them more blocky

    Thanks guys.

    No my main goal was just light mods and paint work to make Tomahawk into an updated Rotorstorm, not so much to replicate the original or IDW version.

    The guns are both modified from 2 recon Ironhide arm cannons.

    Thanks guys. I try.
    I'm using this same blue on Topspin and twintwist too. Same blue as my critically acclaimed Autobot BW Depthcharge. :) 
    I'm kidding about the "critically acclaimed" thing, before anyone gets their bloomers in a bundle.
