    Depth Charge is a character from Transformers: Beast Wars cartoon series. He turns into a Manta Ray and also a space cruiser mode.

    My LEGO rendition of Depth Charge improved upon his original toy by making him more proportionate (read: sexy) and less top heavy. And he finally has a well sculpted waist and abs, well deserving for a robotic warrior constantly on a hunt .

    The wings on his space cruiser mode buckled when placed on the ground, so I have to prop it up with a lego-built stand to hover .

    The robot mode is articulated, as usual. The tail-turned- sword used to be bigger, but I was forced to redesign and simplify it so that it can be lighter and wielded in robot mode without sagging.

    I feel almost unworthy to see this, like it's too good for my mere mortal eyes to view.

    Mine too! I'm not that into BW despite binge buying tons of BW figures on sight more than 20 years ago (and sold most of them after Armada came out). Depthcharge's probably my favorite of the lot alongside BW2 Galvatron.

    What dimensions is the shark weapon? I need a smaller shark weapon to go with my undersized Depthcharge. It came with a full size shark with a smaller handle. Could you make me a custom Shark or tell me what pieces I would need to make one @alanyap ?
