    So I am at it again ...!! LEGO Ninjago set 71718 is an absolutely incredible set to build a TF from.

    In my latest ,second attempt using this set ... I yielded a White Lion TF. My first attempt was a dragonFormer not unlike Deathsaurus (below)

    The leg mounted cannons was inspired from G1 Tantrum's leg mounted fuel tank.

    The winged mode is purely incidental. I was trying to apply the black triangular parts to bulk up the lean beast mode.. and connecting them to ball joints is the only way.

    Yes... the beast tail detached to become the gun he is holding.

    Together with another Lion-Former I built last month from lego set 31112.
