@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 02:35 PM)

@  MEDdMI : (09 February 2016 - 02:07 PM)

Now you didn't fill the form in black or blue ink. Do it again.

@  Rycochet : (09 February 2016 - 02:04 PM)

You made a typo on the first page of the forms, you're going to have to go back and fill the whole form out again, from first to final.

btw one of the Transformers Victory intro's(not the original music used) on YouTube uses one of the pieces of music used on the US version of Transformers Armada

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:55 PM)

You should read it again, it gets better with age!

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 03:46 PM)

I am fully aware of that story and mentioning it carries the penalty of fifty towel snaps.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:31 PM)

Shh, it's a trap!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 February 2016 - 02:48 PM)

See, you said "awesome" and "The Beast" in the same sentence, and I think you broke my mind with the contradiction.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:42 PM)

No-one tell Whirl about the awesome dinobot combiner, The Beast.

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:37 PM)

@Dracula Uh oh were in trouble.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:36 PM)

If you think that's cool, wait until you see what other stuff we're hiding from you.

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 02:33 PM)

Transformers Victory's intro is awesome. And not one of you told me.... WHY?!!!

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

It doesn't count those using it on other pages.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

If it's the one by IPB Shoutbox, it means the number of people who are viewing the Shoutbox page.

@  tffan01 : (08 February 2016 - 10:34 AM)

Where's the red numbers?

@  Lush City : (08 February 2016 - 09:23 AM)

Ok total newb to the shoutbox, but what do the red numbers in the corner mean?

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Thought it would lead to hi jinks and a lark like that movie Idiocracy instead it turned into something disturbing and traumatic like that movie Small Soldiers.

@  Dracula : (08 February 2016 - 08:55 AM)

I got bruticus limbs at FP last monday and Onslaught on Friday. Huge mistake, I inserted an X1000 microprocessor in each one and a extra for Bruticus, and they mopped the floor with the rest of my CW collection.

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 06:18 AM)

i already got those(Scattershot & Onslaught) from Smyths Toys here in the UK, Asda's supposed to have the RID Warrior Class figures in(Megatronus, Blue Optimus Prime ect)

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:07 AM)

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

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:
