    Made from a Elita1 i got for my birthday, and a tr windblade i got for cheap here on tfw.

    The turbines are made from a scrapped transmetal megatron.

    This is by far the most work i ever out into a character i dont praticulary like.

    Any suggestions or critiques would be appreciated

    nice work, but the titan master head makes this look more like windblade got a mech suit for herself

    Got to agree, that head is too small. Could you mod the existing Elita head? Other than that, great custom!

    A simple fix for a too-small head is to mount it further foraward on shoulders and alternatively to give the head more of a crest. A sort of golden halo behind the head wouldnt look out of place. TAAO #11 has some neat ideas about what an upgraded look might be TAAO #11

    In any case, trade out her swords for a new hammer and this is a primo mistress of the flame look!

    This is an awesome custom! It could be an 'Armorized' Windblade wearing some heavy-duty battle armor (like the TFP Apex Armor) for the fight against Unicron or something.

    It looks like Windblade in a power suit..... I don't mind that. Nice, I do wish there was a better head for her, that one gives off the power suit vibe cause it looks like it doesn't fit on the body (which was the big problem with TR for me).

    I'm buying an Elita One to do the exact same thing, I'm just looking for a slightly larger head. But this is a much needed proof of concept! Great work!

    Sweet. :)  The head's a little small but given that it's just the TR head that's to be expected. Still surprised we didn't get a retool of the Elita 1 mold into Windblade in POTP. Kind of a no brainer when you think about it.

    That looks pretty good. In alt mode, she has a Thrust vibe going for her.
