    I picked up my G1 Orion Pax re-color incorrectly and this happened. I think I on to something with this. 20231112_084856.jpg 20231112_084936.jpg

    Apologize if this has been done before. (I'm sure someone else has done this.) But I hate the Legacy Tarn's alt mode. I really do. I pre-ordered the figure, because he seemed (rightly) to me to be a popular unicorn. And he's a great action figure. But alt mode is dog squeeze.

    I know it's "accurate" to the original drawing… in which he appeared in a handful of comic panels, ever, and was 99% in robot mode in IDW. And don't think he ever transformed in Cyberverse. So his "tank" mode is throw-away. The way the treads are arranged, he couldn't turn. He'd generate double the friction moving forward and gain no advantage. It's just the most glaring example of "first draft and went with it." And the lack of hidden hands on the toy also ruins it for me.

    I regret not picking up the MMC. Now it's scalped to high heaven. But that one looks like a cohesive alt mode and is actually more CHUG scale if you consider he's supposed to be an intimidating thug…

    Preamble over, here is Tarn's "Hunter-Killer Drone" mode.

    I kind of like it now. The tread things that click together act like wing/thruster flaps. In headcanon, the tread wheels are now pulse thrusters or whatever. He has to float with his front hanging down, but I kind of like that. It's like he's leaning in with his weaponry.

    Bonus: you can't quite hide his hands, but you can do a better job of obscuring them.

    Strongarm can become an artillery piece. It can go up and down, and the wheels can be somewhat convincing as cogs. Any manner of weapons could be connected, but I’ve gone with the standard pistol.

    Nice! Looks like his Machine Wars alt mode mixed with his TFA Cybertronian form.

    That’s a Custom, not a Fan-Mode. Ask around the Creative sub-forums.

    Are you looking to customize? If so I’d recommend posting in creative/general discussion (I think that’s what it’s called, please do tell me if I’m wrong)
    Edit: I didn’t see the reply above, my bad
