    Scourge, the tracker, and his henchman, the Sweeps...Cyclonus, the warrior, an they all form Armada! (at least, that was the premise). 20170111_162947.jpg 20170111_163700.jpg 20170111_164927.jpg Galvi with Menasor.jpg As you may have probably have noticed, this is still a work in progress. There are a few missed opportunities in CW line, especially this one. You have a rogue Cyclonus that is supposed to be a torso for "Galvatronus". Limbs that we obviously know that Sweeps or Scourge were inevitable, execpt it did not happen. I saw a few attemps here that are way better than my project here, but I am in no better customizer and even worse at painting. The idea of merging CW Cyclonus with TR Scourge are just a fit for me, except again, the stupid TR head ports are just really flimzy. I asked Mike of GlauGworks to design me a CW male port to a TR port and have been really helpful. Thanks to him I was able to at least try. I am not sure if I will continue to work on this since it is quite hard to come up with the ideas on how to properly connect them, but for now, this will have to do. Thanks for looking. Suggestions and constructive criticisms are welcome and let me just emphasized that I am in no expert, hardly even a novice in customizing so if you are just going to bash my work, you are just wasting your own time :)  , I already know that it looks silly, especially with the "pincher hands".

    Awesome idea, but I would suggest getting a Legends Scourge as Scourge or slightly paint one of the TR Scourges. Other than that, perfect.

    The leg sweeps are a little awkward looking, but other than that, good start! Also, is that Menosor posted here somewhere?

    Neat.
    Dunno what you can really do to fix up the feet, though, that looks like it'll be the hardest.

    Planning on just swapping the legs and/or arms of Triggerhappy like what someone did here some time ago.

    Yeah I know. Really hard to secure them, in attaching Scourge's legs together for a stable form. Challenge indeed.

    I copied that with someone else's idea with a few modifications of my own. I will post them soon too.

    Pretty cool. Like the possibilities you can go with this. Have an idea for the legs that might help.
    Transform Scourge into this configuration:

    Then stand him up so the canopy is toward the outside, and use his feet for toe & heel spur. Like this:
    0112170457-1.jpg
    Could that work with your adapters? Hope that helps or gives you some ideas where to go from there. Good luck. Will be watching to see how this turns out.

    How are your adapters working out? Have an idea for the hands, but need to work out some details first.

    I took your advise regarding the leg configuration. At first I was hesitant since it might look awkward and skinny, but it is growing on me. I will post a photo soon. Just really busy with work. The leg adapters are flimsy since I modified them form the original design. The designer offered some other concepts that I have yet to buy, I will get to that soon as well. Your ideas are welcome. I do want the "pincher hands" to be better. Thanks for the offer to help. Let me hear your ideas.
