They said he couldn't be improved... they were WRONG! Another MOCformer, G1 aerial specialist, the new AND improved Warpspeed, version 2!
About this creation
The laser cannons become either blasters or laser swords for robot mode.
Warpspeed likes both Earth and Moon base Theta, but prefers the lunar station only because he can do more stunt flying there. A young Autobot, he's still learning the military disciplines of following orders from Captain Blackstar.
It's doubtful Prime would give him this much leeway, but Blackstar believes the young cadet can better his maneuvering skills by letting Warpspeed practice his high speed flying drills.
Don't let his youthfulness fool you - he is a cunning warrior and eager to assist the cause. Many a Decepticon have been caught unawares by Warpspeed's "stunt runs", and they quickly learn the boy is a crack shot with his blasters.
Robot mode. Here he is, sword training. Warpspeed is skilled enough to fight with both blades...
...with a blade and blaster...
...or with both blasters. Warpspeed is trained as a marksman, and his shots are deadly indeed. Still, the young Autobot prefers swordfighting, thinking it's a more civilized way of resolving disputes.
Given all that, the lad enjoys interacting with humans, and the humans enjoy his youthful exuberance.
I once again redesigned him several times after my 4-year-old great-neice walked in and said "I don't like that one, Uncle Scott." She gave her approval to this version, so thank her. She's adorable, honest and correct - I didn't like his earlier redesigns either.
Legs now come together in alternate mode for craft's nosecone, wings and head have better hinges and he's rockin' the new team colors, blue and yellow!
More detail, more fun, better looking in both modes - this remodel has "WIN!" written all over it!
As always, feel free to leave comments / feedback / critique, build on and HAVE FUN!

Sweet! Really like this guy...that moon base is full of cool Autobots...
Thanks! Yeah, awesome moon base - pity there's a hidden Decepticon base between the Earth and Moon. I'll be posting moon base pics soon, just gotta have a day with no toddlers wanting EVERY SECOND of uncle's attention.
