Guyhawk/Gaihawk is a member of Breastforce, a combiner team from Transformers: Victory Series. He transforms into an MIG fighter jet and arm for Liokaiser
About this creation
From a team of 6 breastforces, Guyhawk
was the first MOC I started building back in Dec last year. He comes withHawkbreast,
his Breastforce companion.
The most demanding parts come literally from the front-end (read; the front
and the back of the jet mode)
Front challenge: The cockpit and nosecone were meant to fold to the back in
robot mode, it resulted in huge kibble when my hinged mechanism only managed
about a 130 degree range. I decided to apply another hinge on the nosecone
so it can point upwards in robot mode to "synch" with both wingtips.
Back challenge: The 2 tailfins/stabilizers at the backside must be folded
away when Guyhawk in Combiner arm mode . This can be easily be designed if
not the the extra 2 stabilizers on top of the plane's rear.
Another back challenge which I decided to accept is the implement the
fighter jet engine. The existence of 4 stabilizers at the back leave no more
room for another hinged mechanism for jet engine on top (See myLEGO
Starscream). So I have to go "under" and have these jet engines to be
folded up the robot's rear .
I attempted to distribute the mass of the stabilizers to the butt of the
robot too initially but they turned into horrible buttflaps , so I undo
Integration with hawk minion.
As the back of the jet splits into 2 legs, you can
see the connection between the jet engines and the robot's back.
The extra hinge on the nosecone made it possible
to be pointed upwards in bot mode.
The white triangular spurs and black "sticks" on his shoulder are not for
aesthetic purposes. They're paddings and connection points for Guyhawk's
combiner arm mode .
I'm pleased to discover there is a space on the robot shoulder hinges for
Hawkbreast's claw to clip on. (this is a totally unplanned for feature)
