    Hi folks!

    I'd like to present my first ever Transformers-custom. I have been into modelmaking/sculpting/painting for years, but this is my very first forray into toy customizing.

    The base toy is RotF Reverb, who already sports a deco that homages BW Inferno, so I took it to it's logical conclusion:
    I sculpted a new head, based on the BW cartoon, and because I have no decals or stickers around, I quickly sculped a predaon sigil onto his chest.

    I also added a few more paint applications, just to bring out some more similarities.

    Inferno even manages a wacky flying mode:

    I'm not a collector at all, I enjoy tinkering with the toys much more than actually owning them, so I put this figure up on ebay, to maybe fund other projects:

    I'm also open to doing commissioned sculpting, be it heads, hands, whatever. Just shoot me a message, if you are at all interested.

    That's it for my first post here, thanks for looking, and I'm looking forward to my time here.

    Your sculpting prowess really shows! That head and Predacon symbol are fantastic!
    Be sure to post this in the eBay forums as well. I'd hate to see you get less than you deserve on this.

    BWAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAAA! For the glory of the Royalty!
    I LOVE this! Great original idea, amazing head sculpt, and captures the character surprisingly well somehow.
    My only nitpick would be the side decal with the decepticon symbol conflicting with the pred symbol.

    Wow, thanks for the warm welcome, guys! I appreciate it.


    Yes, it really is my first custom figure. I have been sculpting /painting miniatures and models for quite some time, but never on an action figure. I usually focus on wargaming miniatures (like Warhammer or Kings of War).


    Thank you, I will do that.


    Thanks!

    You are right, I kindo overlooked the Decepticon symbols. :/
    Oh well, gotta pay more attention next time.


    Oh, I like that idea. Like nomadic army ants perhaps? Always on the move...


    Thanks!

    Megatron does, too.


    Actually, the scale is a nice break from the usual fare. The dwarf's head in my avatar is actually smaller than the insignia, including the helmet. Sculpting in larger scales was one of the reasons I wanted to try my hand at a Transformer.
