    Hey guys!

    Havent posted anything in a while, though I have been keeping busy. Ive finished up quite a few of my projects but had to make consessions Im not happy about, once I get those worked out you'll probably see a bunch of stuff at once.

    Anyway this is a side thing that is kinda werid for me. Its not a commision because I won't charge the guy, but the first figure I've been asked to make. He goes on kicks of certain characters and right now Blaster is the flavor of the month.

    So here is a single image of my WIP Animated Blaster. Hes getting close to getting done with just a bit more detail and cleaning the whole thing up. right now hes going to have a Robot Heros Blaster head attached to the ball joint, though I think it looks a bit small. If you guys have any suggestions on a bit more in-scale head, lemme know!

    3/20 more WIP pics

    Looks cool man. but i gotta say (and i'm sure this isn't anything new), i can't stop looking at your sig pic. wowzers.

    Are you planning on doing anything with lazerbeak? or just sticking with the bot. i really dig this mold, and my only negative is that i wish it was bigger.

    Do I spy a Battle Beast in the background? Haven't seen any of those in ages.

    Oh, and try an action master Blaster head. It would be better than the robot heroes head, however, it might be too big. Thoughts on this anyone?

    Looking good Crosscharge....this should prove to be one sweet custom.

    I'm looking forward to see your other pieces too.

    there's a couple of Autobot characters I'd think it'd be fairly easy to modify that Laserbeak into...

    you got a nice start going already.personally i prefer the robot heroes head over the action master one.on the animated blaster i did i used the rh head and there wasnt much to the head swap.im not sure how much cutting/shaving you would have to do to make the am head fit into the cavity for transformation though.but i find(imho)that with the rh head being a tad small,it ended up making blaster/soundwaves body seem a bit bigger than it is.(almost like how pat lee used to always draw megs and prime with giant bodies and a football sized head.i'll try to post pics later tonight,maybe they can help you or give you more ideas.(love the silver battlebeast too!!!!)

    Considering it's animated, you could always try the G1 head...Remember that the G1 head was freakin small compared to its body.

    Yeah, I gotta agree. Tops in my book. I don't think you'll be underrated for long though...

    Thanks for all the kind words everybody, really the gust of wind in my sails I think Ive been needing. Though the hardest part I have in working on these is the waiting, I still want to rush through a project to get to the end product.

    I totally forgot about action master Blaster (skipped on all of those when I was younger) and I might look into those or a g1 head when I end up making one of these for my personal collection. Special thanks to Chansformers for posting his and giving me some ideas.

    PS. Battle beasts do indeed rule, I just finished a side collection of all 76 and had a few junkers left over and decided to try painting them up, Im sure you'll get to see them soon.

    PSS All Avatar comments should be directed torwards my wife, she apprciates everyone of them ;P

    Ask and ye shall recieve, a few days later, assuming there is time, and Im not feeling lazy.

    Two more WIP pics, Im really not minding the RH head as much as I thought I would. Im really bad at guessing where rub spots are going to happen, so Im at the phase where Ive put down my base colors and and I try to completly ruin my paint job so I can go back sand and and fix it all up. Since this isnt going to be my custom, this is the first time Im going to clear coat to give some extra protection, probably going to go the future route.

    Only really thing I am debating on now is how to break up the blocky colors in alt mode.

    Thanks for all the comments and help so far, hope you like the progress!

    Also, Can I not edit my original post to add these images there? - Nevermind, needed to Go Advanced!

    Looking good Crosscharge....I was wondering we would would see an update....and it was worth the wait too :) 

    As far as breaking up the colors in alt mode, only thing I can think of right now is maybe adding some color coordinated graphics or stripes...maybe do a image search of Scion xB's to get some idea's....

    I'd have to agree with PK entirely here.
    Keep us updated.
