It's the RiD mold with minor mods. Mostly trimming off tabs and filling screw holes. Will be trimming the "cape" to give him a better overall look. It sacrifices his transformation ability, but I'm okay with that.




And this will be his weapon. A combination of ROTF Smokescreen's rifle and some styrene tubing.

Man you got some skill! Love the War for Cybertron Prime! I noticed you have an Ebay store linked to your website. Are you going to be adding some stuff to it anytime soon?

This is a custom I've wanted to do for some time! It's my take on Nemesis Prime. I used the PRiD Voyager Class Optimus Prime for the base. I modded his back to get rid of the "cape". It takes away his transformation but, really improves the overall look. He's painted in House of Kolor Galaxy Gray, which is a very nice, very dark, metallic gray. I gave him flat black trim instead of the normal chrome for something different. I left off the teal and purple to make him a bit more unique, but did keep go for the red windows. The axe was made from RiD Cliffjumper's hammer and styrene. I'm still on the fence about that cannon, though. Not sure it fits the TF: Prime vibe. I'll field some feedback and maybe dress it up more for the auction.

This is Shattered Glass Cliffjumper. He was done for a friend as part of a charity auction he'll be running. Enjoy.

Most of the "dirty/weathered" look I get from drybrushing various colors over each other.

Thanks for checking them out.

Finally wrapped this guy up. Had so much fun with my Shattered Glass Cliffjumper, I decided to tackle another SG character. Megatron!

As I started to paint the figure, I realized the original head just wasn't going to translate well into the "Heroic Decepticon" concept. So, I swapped his head with WFC Megatron. I made a few other mods to his cannon. Mostly just filling in the gaps but, also adding the tubes to it.He was painted with Testors Model Master enamels in what is becoming my signature drybrushing style, and the end of his cannon was done with SpazStix glow-in-the-dark blue.

What paints do you use? I use basic acrylics... I get fine results but I wish I could get something to look a bit better.

Also, what kind of "sealant" do you use to make sure the paint doesn't chip and whatnot during transformations?

For most of my customs I used Tamiya acrylics. I've since switched to Testors enamels and House of Kolor.

I did this one as a gift for a Secret Santa. Hand painted with a combination of Testors Model Master Enamels and Tamiya Acrylics.

Cool. This must have taken you ages and hours to work on it.

But the end results certainly pays off.

I like how you add your own input to it. Creative and Sharp.

It killed me to do this to my all-time favorite figure! I just shows the lengths we'll go to for our craft. This is MP-10 with some pretty hefty battle damage. He's lost his right eye and suffered a broken right arm. He has a nasty case of carpal tunnel in his left wrist that required surgery. Finally, a bad boo-boo to his left knee that, he really wished he had a mommy who could have kissed it. Unlike most of my other customs, this one is for me so, sorry, he's not for sale.

This is a commissioned piece that I've been working on for a few months for a VERY patient customer. He's been put through some battle damage and given what's become my signature raw metal look. I gave his sword and shield a nice shine and a metallic undercoat. I really wanted to leave the unique Autobot emblem on his chest alone and would LOVE IT if someone could make waterslide decals that matched it! The nameplate holder was made from a Sigma 6 box top and will be used to hold custom nameplates for future works. Enjoy!
