    Finally got around to finishing the paintjob on this guy. Now that he's done and my wreckers are complete, i'll get some more group shots of the team up on a seperate post.

    Used Spoonmans head cast, upper torso of HFTD Tomahawk, and legs of RTS Cyclonus. I know some might not be a fan of the legs I chose, but i think it makes him a little more comic accurate (LSOTW) and gives him extra height as well (much needed with all the other big guys I have in this "Ultimate" Wreckers line). Plus they have landing gear built in to the shins for alt. mode and look like jet engines/turbines as well in alt. mode. I think it pulls it off nicely, what do you guys think? As always, Enjoy folks!

    It took my brain a moment to accept the new legs, but then I realized, though much different from the original base figure legs, the new ones are proportionately just about perfect.
    He looks a bit thin from the front but this is one of the best Rotorstorm customs I've ever seen. I love how well that worked.

    That mold looks so much better with real robot legs instead of chicken flippers. Many extra points for still being transformable. Beautiful work!

    It looks great! I've had those legs on him for months too but I was stuck on the head. Time to message Spoonman!

    I love how by swapping the legs it totally makes him look completely like a Classics figure instead of movie.

    I like it! And I like the legs! Anything that doesn't change the transformation and alters the original mold is good!

    Thanks to all! Glad to see the new legs are warmly welcomed! I realized a few days ago that I don't have a Rack'n'Ruin for my team, so I went out to TJMAXX and bought another Warpath. 2 Gen. Warpaths and a chain between them (plus anvil and hammer) = Rack'n'Ruin!!!! More to come!

    Great take on RS, I like a lot the mods you made. This head is really necessary to bring any RS project closer to his IDW version. I think I'll be ordering one for mine.
