    Hello everyone! After a strenuous holiday season I burried myself in getting stuff done! Not posting many wip pics just because I want this stuff finished. I am BACK and CRANKING!
    First off the line is Activators Brawn. A second version for someone who loved my first one but lost it on ebay. I wanted to do him a little differently so I painted the bumper area his signature brown color to break up the monotany of the green thus giving him an updated look. The major upgrade is the larger head. I cut away some of the hinges to allow for the new noodle but it retains it's spring gimmick. The head is entirely made of Mighty Putty with a styrene rod for attatching. I'll be posting more completed projects soon so stay tuned kiddies!

    Great work on that one! I might have to try that myself with my Soundwave except I don't have the head sculpting skills badge yet :( 

    I've always thought painting the arms and hands on those activators really sets them a few notches higher.

    Super nice version of Brawn there Spoonman! This mold works perfectly for the character and the size is a perfect Minibot!

    That is outstanding! It works perfectly as Brawn, seriously you need to sell this idea to Hasbro and have them make this.

    Ah man, that's brilliant. I'd hate to be a bother but would you consider making one for me? I don't have money I can spend on it, but I could do art commissions if you're interested. Let me know? :3c

    Thanks you guys! Really appreciate all the positive reviews. I forgot to mention that I made a mold of that head and they are available for casting. Shameless pimping bump!
