    Hi there,

    This is/was my first custom ever. I decided to repaint the Aramade Unicron figure. I wasn't a huge fan of all the transparent part on him. I didn't really go with a complete G1 theme, but more of a mix between G1 and Armada. He was painted with Tamiya Acrlylic painted (some of which were custom mixed by your truly). I also did some panel ining with some Gundam markers.

    I removed the electronics from his right hand and altered the electronics in his head to get ride of the blinking feature. Now his eyes only stay on as long as you hold the switch at the top of his head. I replaced the led in his head with a green one to match his G1 eye color.

    I added some Leds to his chest cannon. The led is a 2-Glow Body Flasher that turns on by twisting the tip. It takes 3 small watch batteries that can be easily replaced. I Apoxied a plastic sphere to the front of it that enhances the light effects.

    The planet mode probably recieved the most work. Using parts from another Unciron figure i flilled in the Mini-con port at the front of the planet. I then created a rear hemishere which is attached once transformation is complete. This kinda makes him a parts-former, but i think it makes his planet mode look alot better. This mod also allows you to display him a little better.

    Very neat, the gun is snazzy.

    So there are so many Unicron Customs that dont use the minicon, where do all of those Dead Ends go one has to wonder.

    I love that. I am planning on modding the G1 redeco to look more G1 and the planet mode to look like a planet too. Any chance you will post a tutorial on how you did it?

    Actually i'd thought of that, but to be honest i just wanted to leave his bot mode exactly as it was. Making the other hemisphere a sheild wouldn't be too hard though.

    Thanks!!!

    The rear of the planet mode was always a part of this figure i never liked. Now i think it looks waaaayyy better.

    I still use Dead End for the missle gimmick and to pop out the cannon in Uni's chest.

    While i can explain how i did it, i don't have any work in progress pics to show. :(

    Welcome to Radicons! You're off to a great start! I really like how you manipulated the electronics . . . .

    . . . . and I'd love to see a tutorial. Perhaps you could disassemble it again and take some photos without ruining your work?
