what an awesome, awesome idea & excellent execution... how close is that Ultra class scale to the Joe figures? Any photos of Powerglide next to a 25th fig?

and people round here said that i transformer gi joe crossover was stupid, round bout the time we did the hasbro Q&A people bombed the idea, this is just the surface of what could be made.

I was gonna do the same thing but the engines are in the wrong place so I didn't bother. I wanted an actual Cobra Rattler that transforms, not an A-10 painted like a Rattler. Guess I'm just too picky. lol

That's some awesome work!
The only recommendation I would make is to paint the grey areas around the eyes in some color that makes that area stand out from the rest of the head (I guess that red would probably work best). Then again, it may look darker in the picture than it does in reality.
Regardless, you did a great job here. I think that this would have been a much better repaint for the mold than Storm Cloud, which is really oddly colored and doesn't really work as an homage to the G1 Micromaster Storm Cloud. Instead, Hasbro could have done this since it looks better and would be a much closer homage to the Micromaster Tailwind (who was a blue A-10).

It does seem silly for Hasbro not to jump on the idea of combining the two lines. They did with star wars and that doesn't even make sense. I would only think they are waiting for the gijoe movie and transformers 2 to come out to capitalize on them both. We probably would have seen something by now, unless they are planning a xmas 2009 release.

We had a thread about the Joe Crossover TF's a while back. This is the exact figure I was talking about. I'm really glad someone did it. And this is exactly how I think it should be done to be successful. A vehicle that turns into a robot and not a vehicle that turns into a joe character, like Rattler that turns into Cobra Commander or something like that. Nicely executed.

Nice! I really like that. I also don't really like the crossovers that turn into a character. Robot to joe or cobra vehicle would be the way to go.
