    UPDATE!
    He's primed in black. Going for a Silver/Black color scheme.
    Added another set of arms using Drift/Blurr arms. Like a Goro TF.
    Possible Name of either Gravetripper or Abyss.

    Alt mode is some sort of Turret. *thanks SG Roadbuster*
    Gotta figure out how to hide his head though.



    Hi fellas! Like the title says this is my 1st custom.

    Don't have a name for him yet.
    No alt.mode either.
    SHITTY Pics from camera cell.
    What I used:

    Drift - Removed all car parts.
    ROTF Ravage-front legs
    Cyclonus( from the 2pack w/Rodimus)- Legs.

    Most likely will strip off paint and redo. and maybe add some minicon ports to him too.

    Thanks for looking.

    Before you go adding minicon ports, I'd say you should think about how to give him some kind of alt mode. Those Cyclonus legs still split apart, right? Maybe some kind of insectoid then.

    Here are the biggest thing that's bothering me:

    1. You just BROKE the roof off. Cut next time.

    I know that I'm no customizer, but just a little advice. I'm not trying to be mean or anything...

    hmmm split the cyclonus legs, swing the halves back like one would normally tf cyclonus, stand the figure on his arms (figure out a way to hide the head) and it may serve as a decent gun turret mode

    other than that one could embrace the figure's random nature, paint him with some earth tones and rust red and make a junkion outta him, of go pure silver and call it a protoform

    also ye may wanna file down the point where ya broke off drift's roof

    I agree with DM, he reminds me of BW cybertronians. Kind of makes me think of tigertron actually. Pretty cool, the paint looks nice and clean for a first custom.

    This has potential, but I'm really feeling a fembot vibe here. It wouldn't be hard to see a classics style airacnid come from this. Try a fem head and see how it looks to you.

    this is extremely creative! its awesome!

    it reminds me of those peeps from different planets. i think an alt mode is uneccesary if you go that way BUT you can also be even more and make a futuristic alt mode with the parts you have so far.

    Part of customizing is experimenting and messing around with parts, especially if this is a first attempt. There's definitely a lot of trial and error involved, even if you plan things out. I applaud the effort here. Definitely a cool bot.

    Yep, and I think he's got that BW Cybertronian feel as well, especially since many of them were shown to be jagged bots without the animal parts or whatever.

    Along with that, I think using Ravage parts was rather creative, as it's not something we commonly see for a human shaped bot. Heck, you can even look at dollar store stuff too, as while most of it will suck, you might get lucky. :)

    Ok i just gotta say that this was pretty rude, sometimes i customize things with no plan, just see what i fits together and what i can make. sometimes i cant find my cutting tool and so i snap things off and trim the broken edge.

    1. I myself have never seen anything like it and I was wrong to criticise him and his work. I am sorry if it came accross rude, as I was only trying to give a small bit of advice... I have removed it from my original post

    2. There was no trimming nor has there been any...

    To: Cryosis
    Honestly, with this update, it is growing on me very quickly! I like your choice of colors and they look very nice together! I am very sorry if I upset you in any way. Please accept my apology.

    Sorry,

    I like it a lot!

    the paint could use some refining, but the mold itself is great! Looks extremely cybertronian!

    And, I don't really think Rattrap came off as negative with his original response, just a bit blunt. I think even one positive along with the criticisms would've given it a whole 'nother vibe. I honestly don't feel that he meant any harm though, and had positive intentions through actually trying to HELP the poster... just went about it wrong.

    With that though O.P., I think this has a lot of potential. If you're done, you're done, but it feels like you have a nice "base", but even if it doesn't have an alt. mode, I bet if you started taking some random bits and pieces and giving him more of an "armored" look, it'll kickass. He looks a bit "malnourished", which is fine depending on what you're going for, but I really think a bit more bulk" would give him a more heroic stature.

    Nice work though. I really hope to see more.
