Toxitron here is pretty much a repaint of RTS Prime. I was able to modify the shoulders, elbows, knees, and hips by removing plastic to give him way more range of motion. Before that he was pretty stiff. His chin was sanded to be a bit less beak-like and he was painted with various Formula P3 and Testors Model master paints. I gave him a new blaster and hose along with a splattery paint job reminiscent of some toxic spray. Found him a tanker trailer as well, Toys R Us has this cool line of 'Fast Lane' 1:43 utility trucks/haulers. They're to scale with Prime here and the tanker trailer was just what he needed!
Here's Combaticon Swindle done in a Generations style and an 8" voyager scale height. He was made from the Transformers Crossover Iron Man Humvee, head from ultra class Silverbolt with a newly sculpted face/crest, main gun from Animated Swindle with extra parts, reworked hubcaps, and completely reworked inner joints to remove the clicky-ratchet style for smoother motion. Swindle's head is now on a full ball joint which gives him much more personality and tons of movement. Swindle was painted with Tamiya Dark yellow spray lacquer, testors gunmetals/metallics, and Formula P3 paints.
On a separate note the Iron man Crossover mold here is my favorite out of the whole series. Everything is sharp looking, wonderful articulation, design, and just the overall heft of the figure. You could probably turn this guy into all sorts of things!
This G1ish version of Megatron was made from what seems to be the most versatile mold in the DotM set, voyager Megatron. His head came from the classics deluxe 2-pack tankmegs, the fusion cannon is half WFC Meg's cannon and a GI Joe launcher, hands from a kotobukia Modeling Support Goods kit, and removable chest section from a Cybertron Red Alert. I spun his lower body around like I did with my Menasor so that the flat leg sections were inside and could be hidden in vehicle mode after being painted red.
I made him a little taller using the hip modification and added toe panels to the feet. Some extra tubing sculpt was added to the waist (or back depending how you think about it) and he was basecoated with Tamiya royal light gray spray lacquer then detailed up. Without a doubt this is my absolute favorite Megatron I've ever done and is how I'd want to see him someday on the big screen if there ever was a G1 reboot.
Do you remember those brightly colored G2 Transformers Cyberjets? They're still ranked up there as extremely articulated figures for the time and I use to have them all. Here's my take on Air Raid, the black stealth plane. He was made from a Hunt for the Decepticons Terradive and Power Core Combiner Leadfoot commander head. LF's head has the perfect T-visor that the Cyberjets had and it's even yellow. His torso was modified so it doesn't flip around and fold, rather carving plastic out of the way so it sits flush in front. I airbrushed the odd blue shading on the back of his wings like the original had and detailed him up with metallics and blue styling. Now Air Raid is ready to take to the skies and fight the Decepticons!
If you'll remember I did Decepticon Blackjack a while ago as the 1930's style gangster car. Here is Autobot Flatfoot his companion piece all decked out in police stylings. He was made from the Scout Hubcap figure with PCC Searchlight's small head. A light was added on top courtesy a part from a Koto Rockman/megaman kit and the exhaust pipes trimmed off the panels. A clear billy club attaches to his right hand via magnet and police stickers were printed out for the doors. I used Tamiya spray lacquer for the base white/black colors and then detailed them with Testors model master acryl and Formula P3 paints.
[I]wielding Wrecker Twin Twist is also ready to do battle at a moment's notice. Outfitted with powerful Cybertanium drills, Twin Twist can burrow his way through most obstacles...especially Decepticons!"
Twin Twist was created from the deluxe DotM Topspin mold with PCC Searchlight's commander head. His fist/claws were removed and given Revoltech Gurren Lagann hands and drill attachments to his weapons. Special reflective metallic eyes were inserted in place of the normal ones and he was given a paint scheme that pays homage to the G1 Jumpstarter Twin Twist.
Check out my custom Hot Rod done Dark of the Moon style. If you remember I did a Hot Rod from the first movie using Bumblebee's 77 Camaro mold. Following that I used the new Nitro Bumblebee for Hot Rod, PCC Skyburst's head, RotF Megatron's fins, and various other weaponry/fodder parts for the spy-mode add-ons. His rear thrusters are removable from the legs and the door panels are removed from the hips. Also you can quickly swap his legs at the hips if you want side-hinged ankle movement I found out. It makes him look so much better! The hood/door flames are done to resemble 8-bit lights like the moving LED kits on tricked out cars. All the extra parts and fins plug into mechtech ports so you can give Hot Rod a unique look or just leave them off.
If it's one thing I love in Transformers it's Tankbots! Warpath, Bludgeon, Brawl, etc. Here's Armorhide of the Decepticon Commandos that form Ruination (or Desert Attack Bruticus if you're so inclined) done as a standalone character. He was made from the body Classics Deluxe Megatron that came in the 2-pack, arms from the Prime in the same pack, PCC Steelshot's head, a Megabloks Iron Man Drone gun, and Universe Jetfire's gun. Prime's arms snap right on to Megatron's biceps with only a little bit of plastic shaving needed. One desert tan and light brick red paint job later, Armorhide was ready to blast away the Autobots!
I thought I'd take another crack at Springer given the cool, blocky alt-mode of Tomahawk looked the part. The base body was of course Tomahawk using a modified Hound head with the top rotor of Evac, DOTM Topspin's guns, and a custom c-clip wrist cannon. Spare handles pop out that can be attached to the ends of the removable rotor blades to make his swords. One green, yellow, and metallic paint job later, Springer was ready to do some wrecking!
I heard people wanted a Shockwave with a yellow eye and the gun on the left hand but decided to go even further than that. He now has a ball jointed neck, ball jointed wrists, a G1 style smaller arm cannon, Cybertanium scimitar attachment, and swappable forearms/eye color so you can switch between G1 and Bayverse looks. I also added new articulated shoulder pads from a Megablocks Halo EVA kit to add some bulk to him. Shockwave's tank mode was redesigned with an articulated central turret base and new front end, removing the 'training wheels' and giving it a more solid look. A new longer hose came from a Spawn Desiccator, the tank end from an Armored Core figure.
Now it's time to paint this beast. I used Testors One Coat Lacquer Purple-Licious which is a metallic. It works WONDERFULLY! Exactly like Tamiya Lacquers, it goes on super smooth, covers any basecoat color, doesn't make pvc sticky (as far as I can tell) and dries in less than a half hour. I also used Tamiya lacquer gunmetal and silver leaf, then detailed with testors gunmetal, mithril silver, quicksilver, Boltgun metal, copper, brass, bronze, and whatever else I could fit in there. Every edge of Shockwave's mold has been given a metallic scrape/scuff then polished into the finish. Oil splatters, dust/debris specks, and scrapes, and blast marks were added. WHEW.
