    So here's the first set of Alternator twins. Rewind I did completely today and turned out very well. However I screwed up some with the dying on Eject. His trunk is warped and I need to get some replacement parts. However they otherwise turned out quite well IMO. So without futher delay, here they are. I just wish I had a better camera.

    And for plowking, I included pics of Blaster with them for you.

    That's what Ricochet should have been!

    The blue one looks nice too. :)

    I see all these Alternators being made into great customs but can't find any myself...And E-Bay prices are ridiculous...

    Yea, the black turned out very well. I think the blue one would have been as good if I didn't start it a month and a half ago and didn't touch it until today. And dispite the silver looking off in the pic, it's actually very crisp and straight,

    I ended up selling a bunch of stuff a few months ago and just catch them where I can in Junkion. It's just a matter of timing. I got one meister from Chosen, one from onesock, a spare Rollbar and Ricochet from HTS, a set of Sunstreakers from Toynk when I stopped by a few weeks ago, a Hound and Dead End in trade for SDCC Rodimus, a few Skids at Meijer, and I have no idea where I got the rest.

    But it's just picking them up for eventual use rather than getting them as needed. Learned that from superquad.

    Not too shamby, I don't see the problem with Eject anywhere. To me it looks alright.

    Next you should do a Ravage into Steeljaw (and with some resculpting, possibly Ramhorn as well). These look good!

    That is why mine may have been my most simple 'bash' (it was just a repaint) but it was one of my faves. I did Frenzy as a black RX8 with red highlights some time ago.

    That Meister you got from onesock used to be mine!!! :lol 

    If you look under his visor his eyes are painted.

    Is he the black one or the blue one?

    Hehe, and mine was a red-box version from up in Canada that I got in a trade from another 2005 member. Just can't remember which one, or what I sent.

    Ditto on that. :)  They're both great, a far better use than anything I could do, although when I think of characters that should be Alts, Rewind and Eject are not what first come to mind. Could be interesting to see one of them from Rumble, but with a good pair of arms.

    You're shitting me. Well now you can't see them anyway. heh. And since you like the black one so much, that's yours. No really, it is.

    And no, you can't have him back now. :D 

    Well your former Meister is now the blue one. Except the hood. That's from another member because I warped the hell out of it when trying to dye. And the stupid dye didn't even turn out right so I painted most of it anyway. The screwup that caused actually forced me away from kitbashing for a month and a half.

    And the reason I kept them the same was because I have Frenzy and Rumble twins with soundwave so I needed a set for Blaster. These 2 just seemed to fit IMO. And here's the Soundwave gang.

    WHo else did you have in mind for Alts?

    Oh I am. I have 14 on the block with 2 more ideas but no figure for them. And one of those 14 is actually my favorite Decepticon targetmaster, Triggerhappy.
