The classic GI Joe Night Force line was a great concept and I wished that they had made more special ops Night Force figures and vehicles but this is where customizers come in. They fill in the gaps where the toy companies have failed, which brings me to this latest custom GI Joe Night Force Tomahawk vehicle. A helicopter is is a perfect addition to the Night Force Line. The vehicle is very well detailed with Night Force logos and red accents that are in the right places. This GI Joe Night Force Tomahawk is very well done!
First of all, let me apologize for being out of the loop for a bit but my day job and a whole lot of yard work has been keeping me busy these days. With that out of the way, let's focus on a one of kind creation from Kingbotz with his Custom Transformers Cybertron Signal Lancer. I love when customizers take on figures that have never been done before and Kingbotz has definitely delivered on this one. One of my favorite things to do is read about the stories behind the customs so let's check out where Kingbotz got his inspiration for this custom:
"Up for sale is one of the few toys we never got from the Transformers Cybertron toy-line, Signal Lancer! This little Autobot was a HUGE hit with fans all over, and unfortunately for whatever reason, the toy was never made for this little hero. Signal Lancer only showed up briefly in a few episodes of the Cybertron series, and I was thrilled by the concept and decided it had to be done! Signal Lancer was made using the Cybertron Mudflap toy and various other materials and loaded with electronics, allowing full-transformation with LED lighting in all 3 lenses including a flashing red-LED at the flick of a switch! All 3 lights have separate batteries and switches allowing the figure to transform freely and lights to operate independently. The beauty of this figure is nothing goes to waste: The post becomes his "lance" and base becomes his shield! During transformation, the post unscrews from the bottom of the red-light mode and the base as well using threaded-rod. There is a pivoting threaded post on his left arm that accommodates the shield in bot mode."
Here is what the figure looks like in robot mode:
