    Nothing revolutionary here, but I am pleased with how little boy blue turned out. And I'm using the cartoon colors, so he's Rumble :p

    Was going for a "animated" look, so I didn't go crazy detail painting every bit of sculpted detail.

    I think it's a great little mold, and I really enjoyed painting up something nice and tiny again. I started out my customs-life as a wargaming miniature painter :)

    Brother Frenzy (or the "red one" if you insist on toy-accuracy ;) ) will be coming shortly.

    Thanks! It's a super-fun little mold, really captures the essence of the characters, even if they don't change into tapes :)

    Your Soundwave can mass-shift?:eek: 

    Seriously. Great Custom. Overly detailed is not always best. I like how your simplistic approach give it a nice toy-feel.

    Nice Background, too. :thumb

    Thanks a lot, LimeWire!

    Aren't they always?

    Spike must have been picking up lost electronics again!

    I believe in show-accuracy! ;) 

    I appreciate the kind words! I actually decided to practice what I preached and use the Robot-Heroes-Rumble color layout using the cartoon colors.

    I think the effect is pretty good!

    I'm a total playset-whore. You have NO idea how giddy I was when this puppy was announced. I can't wait for the Decepticon one!

    I've been trying so bad to not be tempted to buy those damn things.

    *sigh*

    Awesome! Glad I'm not the only one who liked the purple on these guys, they are cool little figures too.

    While pricey, they're worth every penny!

    I'm a cartoon guy, the G1-toy colors are just too dark.


    Thanks!

    It's probably because I haven't installed SkySpy yet ;) 

    And thank you sir, you know how much I love your paint work, so I appreciate the compliment!

    Thanks!

    Thanks!

    I appreciate it! I'm still gonna leave all the battle-damaged customs to you though ;) 

    :p  Frenzy is Blue, Rumble is either Red or Purple, so this is clearly Rumble ;) 

    Hey thanks! I've been in retirement until recently, so I haven't shown any serious work off in years. This scale (tiny) is where I'm at my best too, so this was a really fun/easy/satisfying project!
