    I remember that earlier in this thread, someone suggested that Sky Lynx with dual Skydive legs and First Aid arms could resemble Halonix Maximus. Does anyone have a picture of such a setup?

    Not truly a custom, Suntreaker just donated all his black parts (shoulders, bonnet plate, elbow joints and pelvis) to his mold-mate Jackie to break-up all the white. No worries, this is my second / donor Suntreaker, maybe a further custom down the road.

    I've been thinking about doing the same thing with my Wheeljack, and I was just wondering if you had any difficulties removing and replacing some parts, or if it was just pretty straight-forward and easy?

    Walmart has him, Smokescreen, Trailbreaker and Wheeljack online right now for $14.96 before tax. You can have them ship to a Walmart near you for free using free store pick up (well except for Wheeljack, you can't ship him to the store yet).

    It's was straight forward swap, Jackie looks better. Straight replacement, no re-molding issues, part for part. Two screws in the waist and one semi-long pin in the bonnet / hood connection. As long as you have the right tools to remove the pins, you'll be fine. Total time was 30 min. The only black part I didn't change was the panel that the head is mounted to, Jackie head kinda blended in, so the white panel was nice contrast. Good luck!

    Out of all of the deluxe limb molds in Combiner Wars, which one do folks think is the best of all?

    My favorite limbs are the Air Raid/ Skydive mold, the Alpha Bravo/ Blades/ Vortex Mold, and the Dragstrip/ Mirage mold.

    I do have an idea for customizing project with the Combaticons, but that's in the Creative General Discussion, so I'll leave it at that.

    My favorites are the Deadend/Stweetwise mold as an arm, and the Alpha Bravo/Blades mold as a leg.
