    IMG_2273.JPG IMG_2275.JPG IMG_2269.JPG IMG_2270.JPG IMG_2271.JPG IMG_2272.JPG So, this is a very minor mod, but after seeing the CW cartoon, I decided I liked Windblade's face better than the TF30 toy I had... conversely I didn't like the boxy, thick body of the TR Windblade. But her face was much nicer, and more accurate than the TF30 version. So what I did was remove TR Windblades face from the TM. Take the back of ROTF Scattershot's head and slapped them together. His ball jointed head fit WB's neck the best, of the spare parts I had lying around.

    That really does look a lot better. Don't care one bit about the character, but this face swap makes the figure itself much nicer.
    Does it affect transformation or articulation at all?

    Articulation isn't as great... tends to wanna pop off, due to the collar, if turning side to side. Hell, for all I know her original head didn't turn side to to well... I don't honestly recall, and it got destroyed being removed, so I'll never know unless someone else chimes in on that. But transformation isn't hindered one bit. It fits in the designated spot just as well as the original.

    What are the chances that scattershot's head would work so well?

    Hey man, many apologies for just getting to this… life ‘n stuff, ya know. Anyway, here are a few pics of the head in position before the cockpit is rotated into place, and a couple once it’s closed. Like I said, fits just fine. I think it’s actually a tad smaller than the original head anyway.
