    Impressive work.
    Can it give a rough approximation of flipping the bird?

    Now all we need is a 1:1 scale life-size version of Barricade to go along with this awesome Frenzy!

    Love it Shane. You're truly a master at the craft man. You never cease to amaze.

    Purposeful or not, wearing the Soundwave shirt in the photo-shoot was a nice touch too :thumb

    Yep this one is a labor of love, blood, sweat, tears & lots of caffeine in the final 2 weeks. Amazingly enough I didn't cut myself one time on all the sheetmetal & aluminum-points it's got on it, don't know how I managed that.... :eek: 

    :D 

    I'll be happy just to get paid! :lol  Yep, 5 months working on & off with a deadline. Just under 5 months, I started in early April.

    Thanks man he's def a work or art.

    Thank ya!

    It can only get better from here on! ;) 

    Just don't fall over on this thing, it'll crucify ya! :lol 

    Thanks man, it was SO much hard work, particularly in the final 2 weeks when I started approaching burn-out...that's when it's the hardest to persevere.

    This was actually commissioned by the guy in Canada that's got the 4 TF-replica-cars Barricade, 2007 Bumblebee, Beaterbee & the G1 Prowl that he just finished. He will be displaying Barricade with Frenzy in upcoming conventions & car-shows. :)

    :D 

    Actions speak louder than words, thanks!

    It's insane that I took on this project, but the end-result justified everything. :eek: 

    Yep, it's quite a sight to behold, so strange to see this thing standing in my living-room all of a sudden.

    I'll take that, lol :eek: 

    Good ta know somebody does, lol

    You do realize nothing on here is totally movie-accurate....as a matter of fact, I took many liberties of my own to change things as I saw fit to make it work structurally, plus there were many spots I couldn't make out in ANY of the few reference-pics I had so I had the luxury to improvise. :D 

    Yep, pretty much the closest thing to the actual movie-prop. I think mine's a tad-bit taller though, I believe the movie-prop is around 4-feet, whereas mine is roughly about 5-feet, but the neck is totally adjustable up, down & pivotal.

    This one I would indeed consider art rather than just a custom-figure, good-Lord the work that went into this conundrum.... :( 

    That means & says a lot, thanks!

    It happened :) 

    Thanks James! :rock 

    Thanks man I really appreciate that!

    Yep, it:eek:  happened right here in this cramped 1-bedroom apartment.

    Well, now I gotta outdo this one someday, somehow.... but thanks!

    Thanks for checking out the finished-product!

    It looks even better in person, can't wait to see him paired up with the client's Barricade! :) 

    It is indeed VERY shiny, an eye-full in person for sure. Did some touch-ups on him today, there were a couple of gold highlighting I forgot on his forehead tubing-trim, looks great. :) 

    I'm sure I died a few times while building this thing, as I didn't get much sleep towards the end, but sometimes sacrifices gotta be made! -And you can bet I had more than a few drinks after it was done. :lol :drunk 

    Thanks for the compliment, but I don't think that's quite my cup o' tea...I prefer to work by myself. It's tough doing everything yourself sometimes though, it can be overwhelming.
