    Yeah it's a great deco but STUPID transformation on both of those masterforce jet dudes. Flimsy as fuck, fiddly, barely hold together in limb mode and I'd prefer if they more like the brown jet version of blast off, as he makes a nice solid limb (got like 3 of him).

    i'm not entirely happy with it.
    I will try the limb swap later.

    Bit annoyed that the leg dude can't do waist rotation giving up the nice silver bit as legs due to transformation.
    If he did, that would be my combo.

    May yet pick up some more doubles and go with Deceptibro Chris's method, look at those shins shine!

    Could somebody who has RID 2001 Wedge take a picture of him next to voyager Optimus? I was planning to make one into Wedge, but I am need of a head, so I am curious as to how close they are in size.

    I agree with the whole flimsy thing. That's my biggest problem with Darkwing. I'm hoping that a 3rd party releases a kit that allows you to combine Darkwing and Dreadwind in a more stable form. I did notice that Darkwing has an awful limb mode, but I'm sure I'll be able to find a way to get him to actually hold up.

    It does make me want to see Buster and Hydra be used from the POTP molds even more cause it'd be a great way to use the molds twice but as different characters for guys like Galvatronus.

    This!

    Buster and Hydra as a Legends exclusive with some retooled parts and Prime Masters with new engine backpacks would be grand!

    Thanks to dollar general I was able to put this one together. As soon as I found one of these limbs I knew I had to have 3 more for Elita-1. This Infinite Elita is one of my fav CW combiners right now.

    These 4 limbs looks awesome on inferno too 20190109_214546.jpg 20190109_214528.jpg 20190109_214559.jpg 20190109_214618.jpg 20190109_214632.jpg 20190109_214126.jpg
