I'm from the Philppines and this is my first time to post here.
Actually this is not exactly a custom, but more of a simple modification. Not sure if this was shown here before, but I think I read somewhere that the Skystorm X-Wing Chopper's seat would fit the Dragonhawk's. I am not a customizer so I dont have any tools, so I really had no way of safely scraping/grinding the Dragonhawks seat to fit the 3 3/4 figs.
All I needed was a scredriver, and patience. No parts is destroyed during the conversion. I just removed the upper portion of the Skystorm carefully without breaking the lock as I felt they were a little brittle due to aging. I then unscrewed all of the Dragonhawks screws on the c0ckpit area. At first I thought I will crack the Dragonhawks c0ckpit section 'coz I had a hard time removing the seats, but it was just easy. All I have to do is to cover the top portion of the seat.
Now I will be hunting for the right Pilot for this Raptor! Any Suggestion? Im eyeing for Lifticket or Scarlet perhaps.
So here are a few pics that I wanna share.

I just wanted to say THANK YOU! I really love the design of the Dragonhawk, and I found one on clearance at TRU for $20. (Unfortunately, it had been opened, and some worthless thief had stolen one of the guns and all of the missiles)
I've seen a lot of posts from people who cut up the seat to make it fit the larger figures, but this method was TONS easier.
I even found a way to stick the Dragonhawk seat in the Skystorm -- though I had to use pliers to cut up the seat and the interior of the Skystorm pretty badly to get it to fit. And none of the figures will a actually fit now, the space for the legs is too small even for the older 3 3/4" figures. But at least it LOOKS good.
More importantly, now I have a Dragonhawk for my 25th figures. Awesome! Thanks for the tip!

I hate you so much right now.
You've just cost me at least $50 in tracking down the parts I need to make this happen.
