    Hey, me again!

    So just finished up this little micro-mod to everyone's favorite 2-eyed, 2-armed, flyin' purple people-stomper, the master of stair-pushes himself; Skywarp!

    So what I did was knock the pin out that holds the wings and arms in place and swapped the wings between the hinges, so now the wings are swept back for a more unique feel.

    !!!OBLIGATORY TRANSFORMATION!!!

    And there you have it, the modded bot mode of the 'Con who is basically Thew's mascot (Don't worry, this isn't meant to be mean, I love Thew's videos, he is a blessing to this fandom).

    And yeah, I'm pleased with the results; It's clean, doesn't interrupt the transformation, and gives it a touch of individuality!

    (Also, now that I think about it, it kinda reminds me of Dreadwing's design, so, yeah neat!)

    And I'll leave it there, so leave your feedback in the comments if you want, and as always, I'll get back to work and see you guys sometime in the future.

    See ya!

    This would work great if they'd made the Coneheads from this mold as a way to differentiate them.

    I actually made 3D printed mods for this figure years ago that incorporated a rotational wing design.
    I used it with other mods to make the whole figure more g1 in design but with a modern twist. Worked out great.
    These are awesome figures.
