    SO inspired by Anemis' work, I just had to have a larger,
    ark-transforming Omega Supreme.

    After I saw the Star Wars Darth Vader quad-changer on
    sale at TJMaxx for $20, I knew it was time to try it.

    Still very much a WIP, here's few shots after playing
    around with it this weekend.

    - changed the "shell" so closer resemble an "Ark"
    - changed the head using Cybertron Metroplex's head w/ some heavy mods
    - changed the skimpy lower Vader legs to beefier ones using Energon Jetfire's legs. Added some shin plating from a Lego Batman.
    - added shoulder jets/blasters from a Doctor Octopus Megamorph junker
    - triple claw/blaster arm came from the rocket engines from the Star Wars Darth Transformer
    - single blaster arm came from the Doc Ock Megamorph junker

    Still to add:
    - knee guards
    - Autobot chest symbol
    - deck guns/rear cape cannon turrets
    - paint, paint, paint

    He's still leader-size, slightly shorter than my Armada Tidal Wave.

    Hope you all enjoy!

    EDIT: updated with knee guards, deck guns, primer, new head. Plus redid the "wings" so that they can fold up the right way in robot mode.

    EDIT: updated with initial paint and colors.

    Thanks a bunch! Glad you like him so far.

    I was working w/ him a bit more last night and ran into a few snags.
    His head is essentially glued together from pieces of Cybertron Metroplex's
    head, plus some random pivoting gun I had. The problem is, a lot of it
    is falling apart and I'm considering scrapping it as a head. Any suggestions
    for another good leader-size Omega Supreme head?

    Also: some good news.... I found the matching shoulder piece from my
    Octopus bot for his right shoulder... the one in the photos I made up
    using some of Jetfire's parts and that's why it doesn't match. Just have
    to grind and redo.

    The head from energon OS would actually work well IMO

    I thought about that too... wish I had one! :) 

    I'll probably end up scratch-building when I get some energy back

    I've been looking at that figure at my local TJ Maxx, wondering what awesome thing it could turn into - as the mold has potential.

    Out of this world man. I've got a ton of things on my list of things to make, but this is definitely being added on.I'm going to pick one up this weekend, just to have and prepare.

    Update:

    Did some work on the head tonight, using a clear bubble from a coin-op machine, and shortened the cannon.

    Tweaked the head just a little bit more. The bits on the outside to form his chin strap are ground from a piece from a junker RID Red Alert/Prowl.

    Added a few more pics to the first post.
    Been working on him last few days... primered him up, added the head, added the wing/deck guns (and yes they do rotate), changed his right shoulder guns to match the left, added knee shields. I redid the wings so that they will fold up in robot mode... maybe a little more G1 vs Animated, but I like the look.
