    Just a few repaints I'd worked on over the past month or so..

    First up, half of my Scrapmetal army. The purple, blue and green ones are the custom ones I'd done. I've only done one green one though and I have 2 of each of the rest. I guess the green one's kind of my general for the little army I've got going. I dunno what to really call him, but "General Alteisen" or "General Old Iron" is something I'm considering.

    To the right of them is a repainted Air Military Team that came with Universe Ramjet. I painted them up to look like their counerparts on the box.

    I'd just gotten a new camera and this was the first pic I took, and I'd figure I'd share it since I hadn't shown off these repaint yet. I'll take a better pic of all the repaints if anyone wants me to.

    (just a link cuz it's a wide pic and would get resized otherwise)

    Next is Movie Megatron..Just a couple touch-ups to make the blue not look so misplaced. I added more blue to the chest and face and gave the rest of it a dry-brushing with the same color blue. This was the second pic I took with my new camera. And I liked how Megs turned out. I was gonna repaint the whole thing silver, but I'm lazy and don't want to really put that much time into a repaint. I have other things to do, afterall.

    Next is just a closeup of Classics Cliffjumper's head. I resculpted it a bit to make it look more like how Cliffjumper SHOULD look.

    And lastly is a repainted Energon Stormjet and Classics Mirage. It's my take on the Go-bots Snoop and Crasher, respectively., I tried to emulate Snoop's look slightly, but it ended up kinda generic-looking. Anyway, on Snoop I used a permanent marker to recolor the clear blue bits red. The red on the wings was base-coated silver and then permanent marker once again to act as a candy coat. For Crasher, I used Kyde's (from over at the Allspark) coloring for it. I think it turned out rather well, I think.

    Who are you on Transtopia, see it in the background on those pics. And is that the same snoop posted over on Tfans?

    Thanks for the comments, guys.

    Tentagil, over at Transtopia I go by Chocobo Assassin. I've only posted a handful of times, mostly about my Micromen. And no, my Snoop isn't the one that's over at Tfans. I don't post over there.

    Anyway, here's some more stuff I've worked on. I've posted some of them before, but now that I have a good camera, I can post pics that do them justice.

    Armada Super-con PL Optimus Prime

    I'll post more repaints as I take pics of them. I have a lot, so this thread should get pretty big lol Repaints and touchups make up about 1/4 of my 757 Tfs.

    Yeah, nice work.

    How did you go about the Cliffjumper head. Obviously, you added some material to the head. Was it hand-sculpted, or did you just find some bits that looked good?

    Really works well.

    I used Milliput and hand-sculpted it. And for the horns, I just took a nailclipper to BB's horns and clipped 'em so they were straight.

    That's the best Cliffjumper head remold I've seen. I like your Gobots Crasher a lot, although not the perfect car for it, still looks good. Your Classics Sunstorm and Thundercracker have awesome "classics" style paint jobs. Keep the repaints coming!!!

    Great paterns there, VERY classics style. I couldent come up with anything like that for my Thundercracker, I just painted the flaps on his front, and rear wings red. Makes me wish I had taken the time to come up with something.

    MORE stuff. I'll be updating as often as I can so keep a look out on this thread.

    First up, everyone's favorite custom-of-the-moment-to-do -- Bumblebee. I gave him the standard rusty and worn look and detailed him as well. With the extra yellow on the arms and legs it makes him look bulkier. Without the yellow it looked pretty skeletal before. Now, he looks buff!

    Next up, all my customized Legends of Cybertron toys. Prime, Megs, Skywarp, Ramjet, Jetfire, Hot Shot and a custom Thundercracker. I forgot to take pics of my Evac. On Evac I kitbashed the arms so the fronts of the shoulderpads actually face the front instead of the top like they were molded.

    Next up, Cybertron Beast Megatron and Prime. I hated the purple on Megatron so I repainted it into a silver color. I also added a couple details here and there. On Prime, I painted all the sculpted fur black and painted his jetpacks white. I also added a couple red and white details and gave the surfboard a silver wash.

    And that's all, folks! Come back next time for some more repaint/kitbash-y goodness!
