Aw I scratched the hood of my 35th anniversary Bluestreak. Fortunately he's in robot mode a lot.

No decoration could improve the wall more than Knockout himself

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

The wall could use some decorating, though. Maybe a nice shelf or a portrait.

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

Hey, new to the boards

@  RichardT1977 : (20 September 2020 - 02:29 PM)

I had an idea for a Spiral Zone/Go-Busters crossover fanfic...

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

I loved what was there, and think it's pretty ripe for "renegades" style reboot.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:13 PM)

It's a shame as I loved Spiral Zone, and the design from the Japanese Toyline of the same name are fantastic, I adore the monowheel motorbike.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Hasbro doesn't seem to have any interest in doing anything with the TV show, haven't greenlit any attempt to rerelease it, and there have been approaches, so I think it may be aother one of Tonka's legal carcrashes where everyone involved owns a piece and it's not really worth anyone sticking their neck out to claim ownership.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I feel that homages and references would be a fun way to expand the GI Joe brand, and give a little love to lines that are unlikely to be acknowledged beyond such capacity.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I was under the impression that Bandai was more the character design aspects, not story or characters.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:55 PM)

Also isn't it in rights limbo, given how it's loosely based on concepts from a BanDai series much like GoBots?

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:52 PM)

We don't need a Spiral Zone reboot, in a decade or so we'll be living it.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 12:49 PM)

Yeah, but it would fundamentally change the base premise of both gijoe and spiral zone. It's either not the world spanning threat it was, or the zone riders are backed up by a competent force. Either way, you compromise the context of both.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:19 PM)

Akin to what was done with Matt Tracker in 2008.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

Again, not a PURE transplant, but an integration of ideas and concepts into the world of GI Joe.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

@Wonko The Cobra Overlord, with help from Dr. Mindbender and Cesspool, develops machines capable of generating a mind-controlling fog. GI Joe stalwarts Flint, Airtight, Lifeline, and Psyche-Out are joined by Colonal Courage to infiltrate these zones and disable the machines. Figures would sport hostile environment suits (Eco warriors cross with Spiral Zone) and make new versions of the mono-wheel vehicles.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 September 2020 - 09:39 AM)

Hasbroverse.2 with bought properties: Bravestarr, Ulysses 31, Galaxy Rangers, Shadow Raiders, Manta Force, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, Mighty Orbots, Jem and Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines. Seamless.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 08:32 AM)

While acknoledging spiral zone would be pretty boss, I doubt they could actively integrate it into anything else: given the scale of the villains deeds.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:03 AM)

COPS, Spiral Zone, Shadow Strikers, Action Man, Centurions, MegaForce. They wouldn’t replicate the old lines, but simply acknowledging their existence would be nifty.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:01 AM)

I would love to see GI Joe become something of a “celebration of action figures”. Hasbro has SO MANY old action figure properties, and many could slot into the GI Joe umbrella with relative ease.

@  Otaku : (19 September 2020 - 12:04 AM)

G.I. Joe, CyberCOPS, and M.A.S.K. all seem like something that would work from Animated or Prime, though CyberCOPS might have been a bit trickier from Prime.

@  Sabrblade : (18 September 2020 - 11:02 PM)

Rik Alvarez originally wanted the last episode of Prime to spinoff into a new MASK reboot.

@  Otaku : (18 September 2020 - 08:19 PM)

The failed Hasbroverse reminds me how so many things could have been spun off from Transformers: Animated and (after that) Transformers: Prime.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Requiem of the Wreckers was post-Revolution, but it was also, you know, a single issue.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:06 AM)

But Roche didn't have a series to keep out from the crossovers since Sins of the Wreckers was before Revolution.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:01 AM)

Oh wait, that post said Roche, not Barber.

@  Rycochet : (18 September 2020 - 10:46 AM)

And then seemed surprised nobody particlarly wanted it.

While certainly not bad, he's not reading as "new character" as the other customs have. Something as simple as also repainting the face might help with that, though.

Yeah, I love the color layout, but he reads as Special Ops Ironhide right now. 


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Thanks guys for the feedback. I can see what you guys mean by it, but considering he was minimally put together from spare parts I'm happy with him. Not sure if it shows in the picture, but the silver that was in his face is replaced with white. Maybe painting his eyes yellow will help in distinguishing him more from Ironhide.

I think that'd help a lot; the silver to white isn't a very drastic shift. I wonder, what would you think of matching his mohawk to the grey of the truck body?

Going a little further than that, the cartoon often displayed his face as white. To add more difference, it would work better going the other direction in making the face dark grey or even black.

I'll try that out. Thanks guys.

 

Here's another set of guys that I made/repurposed from G2 Aerialbots: Flameout and Freezeout. I went ahead and stole the Titan Master names because why not.

 

Flameout

Freezeout

34271970833_c183c7d859_h.jpg

 

 

I'm still working on their bios and haven't nailed/finalized their characters yet. Though one thing is for sure, Flameout is going to be a pyromaniac in memory of Kevin "Solfire" Russell's fan character.

Sometimes, RPG questionnaires can help with character development. You may or may not look into a few of those.

Thanks Zam for the tip. I'll look into those whenever I get writer's block trying to come up with a character.

I finally bought some Shapeways and Reprolabels/Toyhax parts necessary to makes some customs I've had in mind for a while. So here's a sneak-peek.

 

Continuing the idea started by Universe 2.0 of having Silverbolt redecoed as Cyberjet, I decided to repurpose my CW G2 Silverbolt into one: so here is Delta Seeker. Just need to paint his head and he's pretty much done.

36352534064_fe1895279b_b.jpg

 

 

Next up is Smolder made from a spare CW Ironhide. I've had the idea to make Smolder for quite a while, as seen by my CW version of PCC Stakeout, but didn't have the full means to make it happen until Reprolabels and Shapeways came to the rescue these recent months. :)

 

I dyed Ironhide's warm gray parts black and began applying some Reprolabels. Just need to finish applying the labels and paint his head and this pyromaniac will be complete.

37017625642_c44ce8d879_b.jpg

 

 

So I had a CW Sunstreaker toy that I didn't really have a use for as Sunstreaker...what am I to do? Make an easy custom with it, of course...and what's easier than swapping his head and calling him Tigertrack. :) I just need to get my hands on Generations Tracks/Wheeljack's clip-on shoulder missile and paint his face and he's done.

37017638262_624d78469f_b.jpg

 

 

 

Lastly is a custom made from CW Wheeljack, originally I was making a fan character from it (hence the black peeking through on his fake chest windows), but when I saw the Reprolabels set I just had to make this! So some labels and a Shapeways head later and we have Exhaust. Just needs his head painted and he's done. :)

I know, right? When I first saw it, it was made for CW Air Raid I think, I just had to ask the designer to modify his design so it could fit Silverbolt. :)

Very late response because I hadn't seen your most recent posts for some reason, but you've completely sold me on the black acrylate next time I have money to Shapeways with. How sturdy do Exhaust's ears feel? Any flex?
