I've gotten various idea's from other fans, and some of my own to put this together:
Eesh. Sorry He-Bro, but this just doesn't work. Like, at all. The idea's sound, but the feet and shins are WAY out of proportion, that custom head looks ugly and the flight pack doesn't do him any favors.
Have you tried turning the wings upside down? If so how does it look? Also, if you wanted to keep the Roboto torso visible, then you could attach the wings vie clear rubber bands. Those are the changes I'd probably make, or at least try out. I have to agree with Joker95 on the shins and feet though, just a little too big imo. Maybe they look better in person, but here they seem too big.
Great idea though. If ever there was a regular character that could benefit from a battle armor type upgrade, it's Mr. Roboto. I'm thinking like big shoulder cannons, a gun on each arm (like what you've got going on there), and somewhat larger lower legs with flip open panels that reveal some form of weapon system. Maybe small guns, or electrical pulse shooters, or something. And yes, wings. Maybe he can't fly with them (too heavy), but he can at least leap great distances. I think this is a great idea, but it feels like it's not complete yet. I hope you continue to work on this guy, and post the results if you do.

My main goal was no not alter any of the original parts of Roboto so he could be returned to normal easily. But still give him a 200x vibe with an upgrade.
I like it, but I think painting the lower legs bright silver will help make the figure appear more cohesive.
