    Hi guys,

    Getting close to finishing this guy. Transformation pics coming soon but is also a triple changer ... This one follows a similar G1 transformation but more about that later.

    A friend of mine helped me cast the head and staff. The figure comes from a Scorponok base, repainted and added articulation to the arms (360 degrees) and legs that can bend. Also, painted with gold to match the G1 replica.

    I have done the paint job with more detailing from the original. Before anyone puts their arms up, this is based on a Scorponok base, not the Black Zarak figure which is impossible to obtain. :) 

    Alt modes coming soon.

    Hope you guys like it.

    That looks pretty damn good. Nice work on the colors. A friend of mine on the boards here wants to use a cast of my Black Zarak's head, but we dont have a mold. Since you already had one made, is there something we could work out to help him on his project? Also, I notice that the peg that holds the two halves of the helm together is painted over in red. Was the helmet cast as one solid piece? I'd assume that trying to remove the pin would destroy the original helmet.

    Also, have you thought about adding some extra armor to help blend in the knees? I think some bulk down there would help fill him in.

    Pics to come soon. Thank you for checking this out.

    Hi Z, thanks for the comments. The helmet is 2 pieces and can open to reveal the headmaster. I am sourcing a Zarak still to fit into the head. I will have some more heads coming in a few weeks, I am happy to speak to your friend or yourself about getting the head casted.

    I had considered the bulk on the leg, will be adding bulk on there soon. This is still WIP, and although I am close, it still has final touches I need to make.

    Bellyboy, thank you. PM me and let me know what you have in mind. More than happy to help.

    That is absolutely amazing! Will you add stuff so he can make a more decent 2-headed hydra mode, the one he has in the last ep of Masterforce?
