    Commission to turn BW Scavenger into an upgraded bulldog ant version of BW Inferno.
    Ant mode was to be very close to the colors of an actual bulldog ant, while robot mode was to look like Inferno. I used metallic colors because a transmetal bug simply wouldn't look right in flat organic looking colors.

    I got a lot of nifty ideas while working on this, so my next custom will probably be my own Scavenger turned into Transmetal Inferno.
    EDIT: Did that. Here it is- http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/755342-transmetal-inferno.html

    Originally, Scavenger was supposed to be a TM Inferno, but something got changed along the way. I think it was something to do with the animation model or trademark.

    Either way, you did this guy justice, and always wondered what he'd look like with some sort of hands. What did you use anyways?

    I really like it.

    Yep I know. The hands and ant jaws are sculpted.
    I also swapped around some leg parts to make the legs more ant-like and less zig-zaggy.

    As a bug enthusiast, I approve! I hope you do Scavenger. There's a photographer by the name of Alex Wild that has some amazing trap-jaw ant photos if you need a reference picture.

    Oh wow. I looked it up and saved some pics. All kinds of gross.

    Transmetals generally aren't the same colors as they were when not transmetals too so I have lots of freedom there when I do my TM Inferno from Scavenger. I do want him to have an inferno feel though.

    i always loved this mold :D 

    it was clearly a TM Inferno even though the name wasn't the same.
    you make it even better... i hated that the figure had drills instead of hands :p
