    Well, I have been working on these guys for about two weeks on and off. Thought I would post up some WIP pics.

    [​IMG]

    First up Highbrow and Gort!

    He is made of Iron Man War Machine crossover and the props and headmaster from the original G1 figure. He pretty much just needs a paint job and he is done.

    Next is Chromedome and Stylor!

    He is made from an Iron Man Sports car crossover and G1 Headmaster. Stylor still needs articulation. Slap on some paint and done.

    Next my favorite Brainstorm and Arcana!!

    This boy was the one with the most work I have ever done to date. Used a Universe Silverbolt and G1 Brainstorm and my favorite tool Apoxie Sculpt. Electronics still work!

    Will post pics once their done! Enjoy!

    Hm... that mold suits Highbrow quite well. If you could sculpt/mod a new chest it'd go a long way. Not sure if the shoulders can be pointed upward to match the G1 toy a bit more tho. Either way it's a good choice, and will turn out quite spiffy when painted up I'm sure.

    Always amuses me how Silverbolt's bot mode can work for a number of jetformers with just a bit of retooling. The reshell of the jet mode's a great touch.

    Awesome! I like the fact that they're all a bit big. It kind of matches how the Japanese version of Headmasters were all a bit larger than regular Autobots.

    That's because he's just a jet with a robot stuck on the bottom. The engineering is very easy to work with. :)

    I have an idea for Skullcrucher, but have a few other customs to get done before then.

    Thanks for all the positive feedback!!

    Kudos! These three are looking amazing, and I love how you're using parts of the original toys (and the original headmasters) on these toys. I will admit to having a simular idea to this for Brainstorm, although I've got a very different idea for Chromedome and Highbrow.
    The articulation you've added to the headmaster's is LOVELY, and adds to the toys beautifully

    my advice (or my prefference :p ) use matt instead of gloss, cuz it would make it 10/10
