    My WIP Masterpiece G1 Pretender Thunderwing.
    Based on Weijiang OS TLK Megatron and POTP Swoop. Not entirely sure why I bothered, rebuilt them significantly already.
    Added waist swivel and ab crunch to Megs. Created new chest/ fuselage, including designing and scratchbuilding the transforming nosecone. The idea is that the shell has no kibble in bot mode, just like the G1 comic.
    Rebuilt Swoops torso, added an ab crunch. Scratchbuilt a new crotch and universal hips. Scratchbuilt new lavender arms, wings, etc.
    Anyway. I hope you enjoy the pics.

    Haven't seen a bash this intense in a long time. Great use of the Megatron mold, works perfectly for a Thunderwing.

    That's so cool. Thunderwing is very much in need of a big, modern figure with his old gimmicks. And that styrene engineering is impressive.

    That's so cool!

    And the fact he's a proper pretender is just... Sweet.

    Thank you. And of course. He has to be a Pretender, despite only exiting his shell once in the UK comic, and never in the US comic.
    I believe he only transformed twice too.

    Maybe I should just make an action figure? It'd be far less work. ;)
