Classics Universe Darkwind Upgrade

2005 boards member Venksta has shared with us his work in progress(WIP) images of his upcoming upgrade parts for Darkwind from Transformers Universe Classics 2.0, which lets the figure go beyond being a mere repaint of Silverbolt. Yet there's more than meets the eye to this upgrade set, as the head is not the only thing planned:

So far I only have a rough head made. The head will have a light up visor. I'm thinking of doing two visors for him. One purple and one red.

He'll have updated guns based on the G1 version. And a powermaster is being planned, along with other things.


More images of Venksta's ambitious upgrade after the jump!

Amazing start, when you announced this, I looked at my Darkwind and thought the Silverbolt head fit the mold pretty damn well, but this turned out really well, amazing work again Venksta. Love how you are making all these molds unique, put me down for a set.
crasis
I'm definitely down for one!!! This looks amazing!
canonball
HA! I just bought a Darkwind a couple weeks ago. Sign me up for sure!
Blurrz
Yum, that looks tasty!
SPLIT LIP
I really like the design, but I think it should be a little more square overall to fit the rest of the body asthetic.
StarFire_MK2
I like the idea of a powermaster feature.
Wyvern
Awesome! I'll take one!! I have the figure stored away..
abe_sapien

I saw a bunch at a TRU down in Washington state last month. Maybe if your lucky, someone's local TRU still has them for regular price?

Thats funny. I thought the same thing, when people first requested this.

I'll see what can be done, when I refine the design.

This is one I'm really looking forward to, probably second to Blaster, which is on the way right now.

I'm assuming I'm on the preorder list for Darkwing and Red Alert...
Foster
Beast, dude. Any thoughts on doing both Throttle and Hi-Test?
sodawilly
Any chances that maybe you could make a Dreadwind head for the Jetfire figure as a possible special set?
ORIO
Curious to see how the powermaster is going to work/connect
jason jupiter
another nice one, looking forward to seeing it all done with a tiny little powermaster.

i'm assuming because it's going to be such a tiny little resin guy it's going to be really simple g1 style transformation w/ no poseability?
Destron23
My prayers have been answered! This guy is allready pretty much perfect, but I always thought it would be awesome if some company made a more characterful head sculpt. SOLD!

Yeah, that is a must. And I won't be cheaping out and doing simple repaints for between the two.

Actually, I want to make it a modernized power master. Sidearm and Duro-5 gave me some ideas. If I can achieve what I like, he should look at home with those two, then G1 counterparts. I'm thinking the transformation will be different as well from the G1 counter part. The only thing similar is that it will have a simple connection to Darkwind, since there is not much to work with.

As one of the first to purchase the Skyfall upgrade, I must say that I shall be on the hunt for a Darkwind figure so I can purchase this set. Looks amazing and I cannot wait to see the final, lit up version.
bradforj
I'll take the whole set, count me in! I bought your Skyjack head and it is great!
ExtremeGz
I too, bought the Skyfall head and I must say that it is truly AMAZING!!! I really do appreciate your creativity in these pieces. Put me in for a set for Darkwind also! (I say as I get my keys to go to the only TRU on Oahu!)

And what is this that I hear of Red Alert?

And as a military guy, I must say BRAVO ZULU!

ExtremeGz
Mayhem_Prime

Thonor
I'm very interested in this set as well. Count me in!!
grayman
Venksta, If I am not already on the list, please put me down for one. I bought a Universe Darkwind months ago anticipating your kit and judging by these pictures it's going to be better than I expected. Excellent work.
Deceptigtar

brr-icy

Looking awesome. Put me down for this if. I'm not already. As well for the Red Alert upgrade. Can't wait to see the Powermaster. And hope that you do both Throttle and Hi-Test. And a upgrade head for the Jetfire (Classics) mold would be welcome by me.

I wouldn't mind if Hasbro make a Dreadwind with this mold either. A correct head for would be nice!
