Weaponizer Misfire
Misfire is a G1 Transformers with a sleek jet mode but clumsy aim. He'll hit anything and everything!
About this creation

Origins




Misfire
 is a
targetmaster
Decepticon binary bonded with
Aimless , a
nebulan "human-like" companion that transforms to become his rifle. Although he
often misses than hits... as long as he's firing on everything and anything in
the battlefield, he's worthy enough to serve as a Decepticon,so they said.


HOWEVER.... when he finally misplaced his weapon (aka his
living, breathing companion) in a planet somewhere.., literally condemning the
poor soul to his doom, Misfire was  court-martialled for gross negligence. 
The punishment would be that he no longer is allowed to carry any weapons at all
risking him losing them again. But this is not the end of his clumsy military
career. He was given a chance to redeem himself by undergoing extensive
weaponization upgrades.. allowing weapons  to permanently bonded to his
mechanical body..... so finally....


"Weaponizer" Misfire is born!


So I finally managed  to explain why I made this MOC
using a few lines of fan-fiction. Pretty nifty huh =)


As you will soon see, since he "merely" transforms into just
ONE alternate mode... his transformation sequence is pretty generic (unfold
legs, push out arms, fold back wings) and almost mimic his original G1
counterpart (as shown in topmost photo).  So it doesn't take me much time
to be done with this MOC. (about 5 days ). 90% of this MOC was done over a
weekend . The other 10% time was spent sprucing up its aesthetics.


Since the difficulty level in tackling his MOC is pretty low,
I cant seem to think of any notable trivia worth mentioning here. But it sure
felt GREAT building this in record time (challenging and complicated MOC project
spanning a month or more usually made me frustrated ).


As usual, the biggest collection of photos would be inside my
blog entry below (click only if you yearn for more !) :

Jet Mode















"Alternate"
Jet Mode ala Star Wars


In the attempt to make the jet wings more "manageable" in bot
mode.. I made them flexible enough to be folded to a few angles.... some
tinkering finally ended fruitfully with a Jet from SW universe! And oh yes...
btw it fits a stormtrooper too in it's cockpit.












Transformation Sequence












'Bot Mode


As a weaponized robot, Misfire now is "bonded" with guns on
his arm as well on on the shoulders. Even with permanent fixed armaments... his
aim is no better.



















 


 



A "parting"
photo


Misfire absentmindedness sometimes caused him
to lose his legs and flew off without them.
