    I've always loved all branches of the Military. I've always loved Transformers. I've always wanted to see all the military transformers that are out there but could never find them. Let's show them all here! Anything goes military themed, custom, 3rd party, creative!!!

    I appreciate your service!!!

    I'll start us off with my most recent purchases! Sandstorm!

    Dropkick, for me, is an under appreciated figure. I think he looks pretty great even if there's no car parts on him and his alt mode is a licensed Bell AH-1 Supercobra. That's badass.

    Thanks! But, I give most of the credit to the toy designer who put in all of those awesome details.

    That's probably the most underrated Studio Series figure right there. And, he's a great example of a TF I'd rather display in alt mode...not because the bot is bad...but because that chopper is perfect.

    Indeed! Helicopters are awesome. Military ones are even cooler. My most favorite though...the MH-53 Pave Low was the most technologically advanced and powerful heavy lift helicopter until it was removed from service.

    I'm on the fence with him. Is that the ss version or KO? I have the originals, evac and repainted blue version, no blackout though. Love the chopper modes. Bot modes are decent.

    SS. Wasn't too interested in the KO, all things considered. SS one was good enough for me.

    I started a trend in my unit of having movie 2007 Bonecrushers at the desk, at home base and in Iraq. Great stress relievers to transform them.

    Recently got a Botcon Sandstorm a month or two ago myself for ridiculously cheap (for a con exclusive anyway). Had the original Machine Wars version that sadly didn't survive my childhood.
    As cool as he is, if there was a mold that would make you miss thigh swivels on a voyager it's this one.
