    Guys I have an idea for what could definitely be a cool custom, but I have too much to do already so I thought I'd share the idea in case anyone else would like to make it happen.

    The plan is a way to make a really nice Metalhawk from the IDW Robots in Disguise comics first season.

    Take a IDW deluxe Megatron or Dreadwing and remove the wings that form his gun. Instead of those wings, add long wings to the arms. -Anything that looks close enough to Metalhawk's long arm/jet wings.
    The wings may need to be on pegs to be placed right in both modes. I dont have the figure in hand anymore so I'm not sure the jet mode wing placement
    will be the right place in bot mode without that minor parts-forming (thou his wings were his weapons, so not THAT parts-formy).
    Then you'd need to mod or replace his head to look more like Metalhawk, mod the chest for the same purpose, but also with how the jet front will look in mind. It shouldn't be hard to add a longer nosecone part that comes down over the robot crotch similar to Armada Starscream in bot mode but extends the jet node in jet mode.

    The wide shoulders, chest vents, thin frame, and overall body look is already close enough to Metalhawk that those mods and a repaint would likely make the best Metalhawk figure ever alone, but how far you take it is up to you! It'd be easy to also add the little white things that stick up on his shoulders, right on top of the risen vent things on the base figure without interfering with transformation.

    If anyone uses this idea, I would gladly share more that I doubt I'll ever get to or am not enough of a fan myself to make.

    That's such a perfect mold to use, I'm shocked it hasn't been done already! Nice!!

    Well I guess nobody is going to jump all over this, but still, here's one more quick goofy idea for a fun custom.

    Transformers/Elder Scrolls Crossovers: Dovacon

    Take a generations Skullgrin and use a bit of sculpt to make his face more of a simple midievil helmet, keeping the horns, so the head is similar to the helmet worn by the Skyrim Dovakin in promotional pictures for Skyrim. Repaint the figure in earthy and iron/steel colors, give him a sword and possibly shield to go with his existing mining pick-axe, and boom- Dovacon.
