I would have preferred the Universe Silverbolt mode, I think it shares a lot of design similarities to Overlord in robot mode and it's alt mode is a pretty close match to Overlord's jet component.
This is just a quick custom I worked up over the last week since I found out I wouldn't be able to attend.
I used the base robot from Silverbolt and grabbed some kibble from other bots and toys. Engine pieces do not transform as there is no way I could figure out how to attach and not overwhelm the chest. Threw in silver for the arms to break up the white and make paint repairs easier. Haven't painted the gun just yet, but will soon. Also gave him a drybrush treatment.
Cheating on the tank mode a little (classifying it as a hover tank If you don't like it... it's my fiction, deal.) Kept the jet as a flat black to simulate stealth coloring.
Edit: BTW thanks for the suggestion to whoever put it in my head about separating the jet. I'm sorry I don't remember who you are.
Now imagine this with a real budget. Sigh.
Not only did you go the extra mile of remolding the torso, but you also went and made the altmode split into to separate vehicles and STILL made it work! Somebody better front-page this! You, sir, deserve a medal!
Though, I'd kinda like to see what it'd look like without the torso modified, since Fun Pub would have likely kept that unaltered, but that's just me.
How'd you make the two halves re-attachable?
