    Still very much a WIP, but hope to update this thread soon.
    I revisited this old custom from awhile back. Before, it was just a repaint of an Iron Man crossovers jet with a head from... an Energon Bulkhead I think. I added wings and null rays from a Universe Acid Storm (that I repainted into an Icestorm but it got damaged later so I'm salvaging parts). I also toughened up the wing-back connection so the wings won't fall off.

    Will probably end up adjusting the head sculpt some more and definitely need to finish painting him, but I wanted to get the sculpt done first.

    I also like the fact that he's the right size to go with my voyager Megatron custom.

    Update 2/7/18:
    I used purple Super Clean to get rid of some of the paint before a repaint, and got a shot of his alt mode:

    Also resculpted his head a bit

    And got another group shot with more bots to show size comparison:

    Update 2/9/18:
    Almost done w/ paint, minus putting on Decepticon symbols and touchups:

    Looking at the eyes I might want to tweak them a bit.

    New head looks a lot better, painting looks a bit rough, (not as bad as me) but it's getting there.

    That looks really cool. The only thing I’m not that big a fan of is the reverse wings for alt mode.

    I tried turning them around but it made robot mode look way worse. I figured this was a decent compromise and the swept forward wings kinda remind me of wfc seekers.
