That's awesome. The only thing I can nitpick is that he comes off closer to a Movieverse Lugnut than a Classics one, but there's only so much you can do to 'G1ify' the design before he stops looking like Lugnut.

It took a while for it to click that you used Powerglide as the base for the design -- it doesn't look like Powerglide-with-a-Lugnut-head at all. :)

That is true. I had other plans to Lugnutize the mold, but he really did look further and further away from both Lugnut and a G1 character

Thanks dude. I was really happy that it worked as well as it does, considering it was just a spark that went off in my head when I saw the toy on clearance.

They are. I had all the claws left over from the Devastator that I gave real hands and feet to, and they worked better than my original hands/bomb/claws.

I say both. :lol:

This is really nice. Are the claws stored anywhere in the jet? Can't see from the pictures.

Ayep. As they attach to the arms via magnets, they also attatch to the underneath of the jet. If i get the time tomorrow, I'll do up some pics of the underside.
