    Sounds pretty awesome ^^ My 'callsign' in the Cadets was Flashbang, simply because I was usually first in, *bang* then out. Like a flash.

    Though I chose Je'Karta Prudii because when I played Republic Commando people used to use Mando'a names, so i figured I want one too!

    hope you dont ware glasses, you cant be a pilot if you need glasses, at least that was how it was when I was gonna join, but since I was told I could never be a pilot, I didn't join.

    it has to be correctable (spelling?) to 20/20. My eyesight is 20/20 in one eye and 20/15 in the other so, no problem there. I just didn't want to be a pilot, but I still wanted to fly so my job fits me perfectly (since I like to tell ppl what to do! lol). I get to wear a flightsuit and I get wings, so I'm happy...lol

    Well that was definitely then and this is definitely now. In my Cadets eyesight isn't much of a problem, you gotta be able to see stuff moving out of the corner of your eye, but since we get mud in our eyes on a regular basis they don't really care.

    So I was watching Tranformers 2 yesterday, and saw some very un-M4 looking M4s being used, so I googled it and found some images. Thinking about modding my rifle to look a little more like this. What do u guys think? Let me know which one you would go with. We'll call the first one the MVARS (M-Vars) and the second we'll call the TF Carbine. The extra 2 images are just shots of the TF carbine in the movie. Like I said let me know what you guys think about the 2 different ideas.

    Gotta love Transformers ^^ 1st Gun looks awesome, I like. Second gun looks a bit, y'know, earthy and samey.But I also had an idea, based on your first concept.

    very interesting Pacx... I had actually thought up something kinda similar to that. hadn't thought of using the nerf parts tho. I'll show u my MP5 mod now, and will work up another MP5 concept with the nerf parts for later today.

    I basically took the MP5 Swordfish from Airsoftgi.com and added the M4 type 6 pos stock to it. Thought it looked pretty cool but never really took it any farther than that. May have to look into it again tho.

    Yeah the EARTHY part is the problem I have with my concept rifles. I want to have the M4 ergenomics and styling without making it look too... Earthy.

    I also LOOOVE the picatinny rails, even tho that has become a very trendy thing here on earth, I think they look so frackin' awesome, especially running the full length of the spine of the rifle. Gives it a very razorbacked appearance, and allows mods more easily. I also plan on adding one of the Nerf laser/flashlights to the rifle somewhere, probably on a side mount.

    sorry for the multiposts... but it is MY thread! lol

    MP5 is one of the best guns EVER. I like your pics, a little less /earthy/ and more 'alienic'. My shotgun (MPtL, as I have pet-named it)

    The idea of mounting side lights is good, I was gonna do the same with mine. I was gonna have 2 red-dot sights on the top and bottom and 3 flashlights on the sides.

    Keep it up, Vod.

    Ok, here's some photoshop hackjobs to make a few variations on the MVARS. The first 2 are M4 based, the third is MP5 based.

    I like it! As this illustrates, photoshop is better than paint/word combinations
