    This from RID 2015 Windblade I found on the cheap and arms are from War for Cybertron Shockwave. The head is from Shapeways.

    Ohhhhhh. I really like the Windblade wings. I might have to upgrade my Nautica. I used DOTM Laserbeak's wings, but they're a bit big.

    Nice choice for the base figure :thumbs2: 
    How did you mod/sculpt the head?

    Yeah, but those actually do LOOK like hers. I may just break down and get those wings from Shapeways.

    Thanks. That head is from Shapeways courtesy of G_Works. I've been thinking of doing a little more sanding to the face so the paint will be smoother, hopefully.

    This is really cool and well done!

    DotM Laserbeaks wings are attached by mushroom pegs, if that helps at all. They look good but are very tall and messy. The bird mode parts could probably be removed with a screwdriver, but I think they would look good if they were painted up like back kibble and mistransformed a little too.
