And now my Dia Battles order has processed and will ship Any. Hugging. Minute.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 05:01 PM)

I know, I just thought it was an amusing coincidence.

@  Bass X0 : (31 May 2016 - 04:58 PM)

its easy to get shouts during the same minute.

@  Rycochet : (31 May 2016 - 04:55 PM)

Rob Lobclaw?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 04:49 PM)

Wow, I didn't even see Bass's shout when I was typing up mine. It was some freak accident that ours were at almost the exact same time, I guess.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 04:46 PM)

The Seacons should just replace Nautilator with a Lobclaw drone. It'd save 'em a lot of heartache.

@  Bass X0 : (31 May 2016 - 04:46 PM)

We spend a lot of our youth wishing we were older, and a lot of our time as adults wishing we were kids again.

@  ShadowMan024 : (31 May 2016 - 04:38 PM)

You still have Nautilator. YOU ALL STILL HAVE NAUTILATOR!

@  TheMightyMol... : (31 May 2016 - 03:45 PM)

Release the Nautilator! No, really, release him, he sucks.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 03:01 PM)

Feed them to the Gnawticas!

@  Bass X0 : (31 May 2016 - 02:01 PM)

Feed them to the sharkticons!

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 01:47 PM)

Or feed them to squirrels.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 01:45 PM)

Oprah's couch has been reinforced by many years of smug. It can withstand great pressure.

@  Pennpenn : (31 May 2016 - 05:17 AM)

That just asks more questions about Oprah's couch, then.

Cruise's ego can crush planets. That counts, right?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 07:38 PM)

Xenu is just Tom Cruise in a wig, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 07:00 PM)

I'm pretty sure cruze just offers the planets to xenu, he doesn't actaull eat them himself.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 06:57 PM)

And they both eat planets.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 06:56 PM)

well, it was one or the other. I might have been confused because they both have huge heads.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 06:35 PM)

I've never heard that before. Are you sure you're not thinking of Tom Cruise?

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 06:32 PM)

I thought galactus was supposed to appear differently depending on which species is looking at him?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 04:55 PM)

Galactus isn't goofy-looking. His hat is the grandest of all hats!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 May 2016 - 12:58 PM)

And we run into something like the Galactus Fashion Conundrum. Are YOU going to be the one to go up to his face and tell him he's goofy-looking?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 12:32 PM)

Maybe Miles's villains think you're lame!

@  unluckiness : (30 May 2016 - 11:07 AM)

I don't mind Miles but his villains are kinda lame.

@  Bass X0 : (30 May 2016 - 09:29 AM)

I just thankful they didn't have a black Peter Parker.

@  tffan01 : (30 May 2016 - 09:09 AM)

I would have preferred Peter Parker. But If they really wanted to make a non-Peter Parker lead, they could have made Spider-Man 2099, at least it has a gimmick (futurism). While Miles, imo isn't that different from Peter Parker.

@  Locoman : (30 May 2016 - 08:52 AM)

That would be cool. Ultimate Universe kind of went off the rails toward the end, but I always liked Miles.

A lot of mine have somehow gotten so floppy that floor polish doesn't help. May need superglue

@  Paladin : (29 May 2016 - 07:51 PM)

there remains an Omega Supreme-sized hole in my Animated collection that not even 3P wants to fill....

@  Nutjob R/T : (29 May 2016 - 07:23 PM)

Just pulled out the Animated box after a few years in storage. Giving it some time is the godhonest truth, these things are awesome

@  Touch My Thighs : (29 May 2016 - 07:12 PM)

@  Dracula : (29 May 2016 - 05:38 PM)

Ride the wave, dude. Put the toys away for a while...take 'em back out again later and you mind find your interest rekindled

@  Locoman : (29 May 2016 - 04:14 PM)

it happens to everyone. Sometimes interests are cyclical.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (29 May 2016 - 04:13 PM)

Well, for starters, it might be time to think of a new username...

@  tffan01 : (29 May 2016 - 04:09 PM)

I'm losing interest in TF. Help.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (29 May 2016 - 03:00 PM)

It means you're not very well-rounded.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 May 2016 - 02:46 PM)

What happens if you don't like pi?

@  Bass X0 : (29 May 2016 - 01:29 PM)

He who doesn't like pie are destined to become the contents of pie.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 May 2016 - 12:09 PM)

No you don't. You think you do, but you really don't.

Just finished sculpting this fun little side project. After hanging around this forum for over a year now, I wanted to sculpt somthing TF-related, and RotF Reverb seemed like a good victim. His deco is already a homage to Inferno, and now he can burn rubber as well as maximals!

I used the Beast Wars-cartoon head as reference, but with a lot of leeway. I made the head sleeker and left out the mandibles at the side of his head, both to match the alt-mode better, and to allow the head to fit into the vehicle mode cavity.
It?s not painted yet, some of the putty still has to cure completely before I take a brush to it.

Thanks, but I?m afraid there are no plans to cast this head. This is more of a "proof of concept", something to point to as an example, when people ask me for commissions (*hint hint*).

I?d be happy to part with the figure, though.

The mold really doesn?t. But If I did things right, the head should yell all the louder icon-fire.gif

My thought process was not "hey, this toy looks like Inferno!", but rather "I want to try and sculpt a head, which one of the few toys I have would I not mind potentially ruining?"

the wheels up top really sell the "yeah this is six-legged ant inferno" I think the only other paint I'd add though would be Black along the edges of the arms and legs

just something subtle

Would like to see Onslaught before the Titan Masters.

Curse you two!

I did not intend to do any more with this figure. But then you come along, with good ideas and whatnot, and I end up fiddling with the figure again.

icon-fire.gif


I don?t have any faction symbol stickers, so I sculpted a Predacon symbol onto his chest. The color needs to pop some more, any ideas?

And besides the awesome idea of painting in the insect legs (genius, I tell you!), I also painted his weapon, the fingers on his left hand, and I touched up the headlights, where the factory-paint was already chipped.









He even manages a goofy flight mode:
