    Toxin was one of the TFcon 2011 headmaster exclusives. Really enjoy working with these little guys.

    And yes, unfortunately, I am that slow. Took me a long while to find a complete universe Stormcloud in good condition. Then took me a couple more months to get around to the mod.

    Anyway, this is another one of those figures where as soon as I read about it I immediately knew the body I wanted to use. The Fairchild A10 Thunderbolt was designed primarily to be a tank buster. The designers selected the Vulcan cannon for it's shear destructive power, then built an armored tank around it; then to top it off they added wings. So what better nemesis for our beloved brothers Stronghold and Garrison than to give Toxin that flying tank crusher for a body?

    Mods:
    - Remove Stormcloud's head, neck peg and LED (destroys the head light up gimmick, but can't be used for Toxin anyway)
    - Widen hole left by removal of neck peg just a little
    - Carve the peg on Toxin from square to round peg
    - remove paint/repaint knees and torso areas that are lime green to match the head.
    - also had to sand the hole in the right fist bit-by-bit to make it just large enough to fit the sword in

    Thanks to Super_Megatron for the Stormcloud.

    I used a very different body for my Toxin, but this is a BRILLIANT choice, I especially love that you found a way for him to ride in vehicle mode, very clever!!!!

    Is Countdown sporting a Headmaster as well? It kind of looks that way but I can't make it out....

    What a great way to repurpose. The paint on the stormcloud really looks nice with toxin.
