    Hey, I just saw that custom Blackwing yesterday! Also interesting because in G2 Blackwing was upgraded into Darkwing, which used the G2 Dreadwing body.

    A custom Classics Smokescreen would look awesome. I've never handled the mold, how is it?

    "Universal Beam Shield Effects Parts" set by some unbranded KO gundam parts maker. They're sold on eBay, Aliexpress, and various gundam related sites. I got this set from Aliexpress as was the cheapest I could find.

    Some reviews will have a complaint of only including 1 shield part. They're actually 3 very thin plastic sheets that are stacked in the packaging and looks like one before opening.

    https://www.aliexpress.us/item/3256805598173850.html is where I got mine. Due to Golden Week in China, there may be a massive delay in shipping.

    Effect Wings Universal Shield Effects that is a pre-order from a US site.

    That classics repaint is the reason why a bunch of diaclone streaks are there. lol. The classics mold is meh. It’s not terrible but the neck platter is ugly and the door wings are a pain in the ass.

    Technically it’s all Wheeljacks fault, first scene of the ‘toon on the original broadcast I adored this character getting me into a lifelong love of Transformers & stumbling onto the Masterpiece figure had me fall in love with getting some figures (not a collection!)
