    Here is my second custom TF. TF Animated Killerpunch. Homage to the Beast Wars Neo Killerpunch. I had leftover parts from making my Animated Brawn so I figured I'd see what I could do with them. The original Killerpunch actually has some meaning to me and my wife as it's her favorite dinosaur, a Styrachosaurus. Made even better cause he's purple. :lol 

    He's made from a remolded Electrostatic Soundwave head and a remolded Animated Snarl. Paints are Testors Acryl Napoleonic Violet with drybrush coats of Grape Pearl and Silver respectively. The blue is Tamiya Sky Blue with a touch of Acryl silver, and the red is Tamiya Red. The lava club was painted with Testors Flat Black with a very light coat of Tamiya Gun Metal. The white was mixed from Acryl Insignia Yellow and Flat White.

    The purple actually matches the original Killerpunch really well. It's a little hard to photo though because of the silver topcoat.

    My thoughts on the origin for Animated Killerpunch were that Black Arachnia and old Snarl got together. Killerpunch is the Son that came from the relationship. :sly:  Thus the little family photo. ;)

    Any love for BW Neo is awesome in my book :) 

    I might have preferred that the Dino-Head be rear-mountable in robot-mode, to better recreate KP's look, and to give you a shot at making the Head into some kind of hand-held-wepaon.

    But I'm a stickler for the play-pattern details.

    It looks GREAT!

    Very nice sir! Tho' I'm not sure I like the implication in his bio that BA had relations with the Dinobots. Like, collectively. Meaning the whole group.

    *shudder*

    Paint job is really good and you did a fantastic job with the paintmatch. I like your version way better than KP's original toy!

    Next time we do an NCTF thing, we should all bring a custom or two and compare notes!

    Ok, it definitely seems like I need to work on the Bio some. That wasn't quite what I meant haha. I just meant that he was the one she decided to be with. Not in addition to the others.

    Bio edited at least a little bit. Still needs work.

    Oh and I agree, we should each bring a custom out to swap tips and stuff!

    The only reason why Snarl got lucky is because his real name is offensive to an entire nation :rolleyes2  But srsly great job on it.
