    A while back I made a custom Triggerbot Backstreet and everyone seemed to like him (thank you all for the support in that it meant a lot) so I've decided to make all three Triggerbot lads and next up is Dogfight the Jet lad of the team.

    The base figure is that of POTP Blackwing with some mods here and there. The wings ball joint has been cut off and moved forward to set the wings futher back along the body, I also added some styrene to fill in the gap between the wing and the body to give it more of that G1 dogfight look as well as the two tail fins being removed and replaced by a mono one. The head like always is from shapeways and is based on the IDW version of Dogfight, the legs have been slightly modified.

    The chest has been fully scratch built out if styrene and some gundam parts I had laying around and finally the weapons the missiles launcher is 100% scratch built and the Gatling cannon thing (I have no idea what it is meant to be) is siege soundwaves gun cut down and attached.

    Thoughts?

    I'm jealous. I could never pull off such awesomeness. The pair look amazing and can't wait to see Override. Only wish I could get these for my collection.

    I dig it. I have no connection with the Triggerbots since they were after my time, but I'm always a sucker for forward-swept wing designs that don't look awkward in either mode.

    Very nice job!

    Just one question. I don't mean to be rude or anything, but what's a Triggerbot?

    There're too many of these darned subclasses to keep track.

    Does he have weapon storage in alt mode?
    And why didn't you keep the combining gimmick?
