    Its that time of the year for me when i get back to the drawing board and think of new customs to start for the upcoming year. Heres one of my first ones, This was actually a request from a commissioner a couple of years back before i started doing commisions. This custom will start out as a REAL phoenix arms 22 caliber pistol and will be modified into a G1 Style masterpiece MEGATRON. Heres a few reference pics below.

    Stay tuned...... a lot more to follow.....I will also be doing my first commission ever this year. Stay tuned for my first combiner in a while Abominus, Superion Version 2, and a couple of much larger customs.

    Will it be transformable, that would be an unbelievable project you have on. Or are you just making the Gun look like Megatron in the alt (gun) mode?

    That's a great Idea. The problem I see is the gun has little mass/stuff to it. Its gonna be hard to get something from nothing.

    You might want to look at some Takara other gun designs for some inspiration and ideas to help you with this project. Cliffbee.com: Transformer Toy Reviews: Browning

    I love the fact you doing this and will follow your project.

    Thanks bellyboy hopefully I can pull it off.

    hahahah good one.

    I love that show!

    Me too!

    I always try to stick to my #1 rule its not a transformer unless it transforms, So this will definitely have both modes. How? not quite sure yet...lol

    go for it! I found it online...lol

    Ooh might have to investigate that one, but im really looking for a G1 style gun and this was the closest. And using a real gun just makes it seem so much more baddass...lol

    Thanks fellas!

    This is going to be awesome if you can pull it off. I foresee two obstacles, weight of the metal parts on the figures joints is going to be a pain in the ass, and getting nice clean cuts through the metal itself. I would have used an airsoft pistol that's plastic if I was trying this. Best of luck!

    This looks like an amazing undertaking.
    Also, a really good way to get arrested.

    Yeah fortunately, weight is always an issue with me because i like to work big as you can tell from my previous customs. But your right pain in the ass. And metal cutting is even worse. I have airsoft guns and it just wouldnt have the same cool factor if i used them. Sort of the difference between good old die cast transformers and all the plastic ones you see today. Thanks for wishing me luck, I think i'll need it on this one.

    Non functional? Aw...

    Unless you make an U.N.C.L.E. kit to go with him, I'll forget it doesn't shoot.
