Given how TM Megs suffers from GPS, I'm sure many people would jump at a reissue.

@  Pennpenn : (01 May 2016 - 12:32 AM)

Out of all the hypothetical Beast Wars things, the one I'd like is a leader class Transmetal Megatron

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:18 PM)

They'd make a superb duo. If TT drew the line under BW MPs after those two, I'd be perfectly content.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:15 PM)

I personally hope we get an MP BW Megs, especially if he has a rubber ducky he can hold, yeeess.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:13 PM)

Bring on October and MP Primal so the anniversary celebrations can begin.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:06 PM)

oh hey lok its tecs birthday

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:03 PM)

It certainly has, man. If it wasn't for BW I probably wouldn't be here.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 10:15 PM)

Yeah, I threw a link in the Beast Wars Birthday thread. I'm keen to hear as many thoughts on it as possible. The last month has proven just how dear to the hearts of fans BW is.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 10:04 PM)

I looked at it a few days ago, actually, I saw you post it somewhere here on the forums.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:43 PM)

No, they're certainly after their own ends. Cheers for taking a look at it, Smokey. I appreciate it.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:36 PM)

Well, at least you twisted things around so the Tripredacus council aren't minions of Unicron.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:30 PM)

With Primus and Unicron, it was my aim for it to double as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of TF:TM.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:27 PM)

It's... Better than Dawn of the Predacus, at least. I could do without the whole Primus v. Unicron thing, that's been done to death.

Got the idea for Thunderwing from a couple digibashes(at least I think they were) I had seen some time ago using the movie Megatron mold. I like the idea of Thunderwing's size being more comparable to other leader figures in the classics line so I went with the movie voyager Megatron mold instead of the leader.

I resculpted the wings cutting and sanding them down then used modeling putty to finish them. Added the extra knee spikes using black Millput. The chest was cut from the existing chestplate for the mold, sanded down and more putty added smooth it out a little better.

He was then painted using various colors of Krylon Fusion and Testors Model Master paints for the details. Then Reprolabels Decepticon stickers to finish him off.









Hes still not quite finished as I need to paint the hands and sand down the inside of the gauntlets so the hands slide back a little farther but overall I'm quite pleased. Also want to go back and rework the red cockpit area so it looks a little more coherent.

Sideswipe has the leg mod to look more destinctive from sunstreaker and added paint details to the legs.

The launcher was made from a G1 Sideswipe launcher cut down to be a little shorter and put back together with Millput and Guerrilla Glue so it does not fire.

The backpack was taken from a THS 02 Convoy set that was broken, moded with the original engine accessory with millput and has added holes added to the sides to hold the shoulder cannon and gun for weapon storage in robot mode and overall variety of cannon placement. It also adds a weapon pack to vehicle mode to hold the added parts as well as being a throwback to his G2 days in a sense.

Prowl is painted to look more like his G1 toy. Always thought the initial figure was a little bland.

Krylon fusion was used for the black and silver details as well as the yellow highlights. A mix of testors blue and white was used on the headlights. And Reprolabels to finish of the look.

Added a nightstick from a KO Alt. Prowl to give him an extra weapon, as I always liked the idea of his energon nightstick.

Roadbuster uses the repaint of the Universe repaint with tome modded G1 Roadbuster weapons to fit the various minicon ports on his arms. I moded the energon key storage area on his leg to fit the rifle in vehicle mode. Also added a storage area for his knife behind his arm when not on use.

The extra parts like the head, Linear Blaster Gun, antenna, and grenades on the side of his leg were all taken from a small non transforming Mugen Calibur figure and fitted to the figure. They were dyed to at least make them a slight shade of green for the figure. The label sheet was also used to give Roadbuster some of his sticker details.

Short and sweet. Sanded a handle down on a Starsaber minicon so it could fit in Hot Shots hand as he's just not complete without his blade of destiny. icon-fire.gif

Why didn't you just sand out the inside of Hot Shot's hand so he can use any 5mm handle? That's what I did, at any rate. It doesn't require sacrificing a Starsaber, either. I sanded the forearm holes to 5mm on my Classics version, too, since he doesn't have anything to plug in there.

As funny as this is going to sound given the topic I really try not to mod the figures themselves in case I happen to need to get rid of the figure at some point. Besides I have only one Henkei Hotshot and tons of starsabers, that particular moded minicon was found by himself at a garage sale so I felt it was justified, and with Hotshot there allready having two cannons I don't feel the need to give him another gun or weapon in general, so hes complete.

Sweet Primus, those Roadbuster and Sideswipe accessories/mods are awesome, and I really like the "energon nightstick" for Prowl. I hope you wouldn't be offended if I follow your example with my own customizing. I did notice the legs on Sideswipe, but the "leg mod" is news to me. What does it entail?

That cockpit bubble on Thunderwing looks SO damn familiar somehow...it's gonna bug me until I figger it out.

Nice work. I was thinking of doing a Thunderwing custom like that but I think I'm going to try something different. Looks like BW Inferno's butt on top of the alt mode? I guess they could be Inferno's hands too.
