    well i am wanting to make him evil but i don't just want to make another nemi i am leaning towards a bright green color and this head pictured (cant rember the name of the guy it came from) head will be painted to match body, also i plan on making him a non transforming figure and removing unnecassary parts. the reason behind this is the truck mode is unsatisfactory to me. if i use the head i have. i am unsure what to name him and a backstory. i do like the original head and still may stick with that. i am also considering battle damage. or a frankenstien style in that many elements from other robots the weapons will be modded as well.

    the field is wide open and i am open minded basically i want to make a cool figure one of a kind through peoples input. any idea is welcome so please feel free to give your crazyest concepts.

    i added a pic of truck mode i may still keep it where it transforms but it will have to look much better than this. covering the head is not a problem just would need a hinged plate. but the profile still sucks. oh yeah the s stacks will be replaced no matter which way i go

    ok folks maybe i move a little fast but anyways before you stands the abomination he was wielded from the scrap parts of the massive killing fields of the end of days.

    anyways he has not been to paint shop yet or the demolition table but now we have a base piece to see where it is going. thanks for the input so far i still have to redesign his weapons as well. i hope no one gets disapointed i moved so fast it just was to easy to slice and dice and get started on an idea


    APRIL 1ST 2008 UPDATE WELL FOLKS IT IS 98% DONE . THE REASON I SAY THAT IS I DID VERY LITTLE BATTLE DAMAGE. I DID NOT SAY THIS BEFORE BUT THIS WAS TO BE A QUICKY MOD. TOTAL TIME ON THIS ABOUT 3 HOURS. I HAD TO TAKE A BREAK FROM MY MORE COMPLICATED PROJECTS TO GATHER MYSELF. I DECIDED TO EXPERIMENT WITH THE PHOTO'S A BIT WITH DIFFERENT EFFECTS I DECIDED TO ADD LINKS FOR THE BULK OF THE PICTURES BECAUSE IT IS A PAIN FOR ME TO UPLOAD PICTURES BECAUSE OF MY OUT OF DATE PC. SO I POSTED THE BEST AND PUT THE REST IN LINKS.

    THIS HAS ALSO BEEN A REALLY CHEAP MOD IF YOU HAVE A JUNK YARD AND PAINT YOU CAN BUILD THIS FOR AROUND 10 BUCKS TOTAL PRICE OF KO PRIME.

    AMYWAYS PLEASE FEEL FREEE TO COMMENT

    I agree an Autobot X custom would be cool or call him Ax for short. Or could make him into an Action Master, but thats really up to you. I'm just throw ideas around.

    thanks guys i know it is up to me i plan on taking the best ideas and running with it even if it is wierd maybe it will inspire something new in someone elses work. also i was planning on going with a majority so basically now i have 2 for the franken style. if we go franken i am going to go with battle damage as well. with wires hanging out broken panel pieces broken and burnt steal etc etc . i need the practice at b damage and this is a good canidate. because of price point.

    any votes on color choices?

    ...:cool: 
    As for color maybe see what different parts you come up with and paint those accordingly, but don't change any of Prime's colors - :lol 
    There's a tutorial for b damage if you haven't seen it yet, scroll down to post 96 - :ev:

    I think if you go Franken I guess paint it in like darker colors because he's suppose to be different parts of tf anyway. TTT, is the master of damage believe me, he can take a figure and make it look like it went to through hell and back. Yes, TTT I'm giving you kudos for that. Anyways I hope it turns out awesome and just have fun and take your time. Besides patience is a virtue sometimes.

    i just looked up autobot -x i had completely forgot about him. i am not going to put bolts in the neck of mine. i like my version better as well mine seems more beleavable. and i am not patting my back . i am just saying.

    would anybody consider rust a no no on transformers? i say this because of the space age alien metals that make up there body. i want to wash it in flat black and rust then dry brush it.
