    Some of you may have seen my sig of Cybertron toys digibashed into BW characters. Well, the other day GALVATOM convinced me that I should work on the Predacons. So here they are so far.

    This isn't a Cybertron mold, but I decided that since Terrorsaurs original BW toy was a basic that his previous form should be a basic too. He's not the best of this batch, but I think he works.
    EDIT: I didn't like the way the head looked so I found a better picture and updated this one.


    [​IMG]
    This was GALVATOM's idea. At first I wasn't sure, but the more I looked at the mold I realized how many things it had in common with Waspy.


    [​IMG]
    This was also GALVATOM's idea. I wasn't a fan of this mold before, but I think it looks tons better as Tarrantulas.

    Last, but not least Megatron himself. At first, I wasn't sure if this mold would really work as BW Megs, but I think it suits him rather well.



    I'll try to do whoever's left. I just wanted to throw up who I had finished so far.

    Waspinator and Megatron are pretty much flawless, and would translate great to toy form. Tarantulus would work pretty well, too, actually.

    Not really a big fan of that Terrorsaur, though...maybe it's because that head just looks oddly placed.

    Nice work, though. I'm curious if you'll be able to guess who Dinobot will end up being for the Botcon exclusive set...I'm thinking he'll end up being a remold of Mudflap. A Scourge/Flame Convoy remold would just be too obvious, albeit incredible.

    There's a reason Buzzsaw looks similar to Waspinator. He's based off of BW Buzzsaw which was a repaint of Waspinator.

    Those are really nice btw.

    Megs, Tarantulas, and Waspy look practically spot on.

    Though, I do agree with frozenred about the Terrorsaur one...I think the fact that the wings are not showing is throwing me off a bit. Perhaps one of the G2 jets may do (like Windrazor or Eagleeye) ?

    I love them, keep up the good work. (like a tigatron version of Cheetor):wink: 

    I think I'd prefer the Robot head for Waspinator since he wouldn't have been a bug before crashing on Earth.

    And as a request, could you find a pic of armada hoist's head and slap it on Longrack and color it to match Dinobot? I've a feeling that he's what we'll be seeing in the set. (unless FP is feeling generous and giving us a repainted Scourge.)

    I think the Terrorsaur digibash works nicely. and the rest are pretty spot on as well.

    They suit the characters really well, all but megatron where kind of a given imo.


    But that Megatron, the only way to express my feelings is: yessssssssss

    Wow you did an excellent job. They all look great, CD Scattorshot was an excellent choice for Megatron the mold works brilliantly with the new head and colour scheme.

    Sweet, maybe thundercracker would be better as Terrorsaurs although he’s bigger than you wanted. Love the Megatron idea, that mould is just perfect.

    I really like the types of red and Purple you chose for these two, it has become more evident to me by seeing their vehicle modes.

    NM:

    The John Deere color scheme looks great on the Buzzsaw mold, as does the plum and off-white on Dirt Boss. Cartoony wasp decals wouldn't look too bad on a chopper, either, nor would some flashy 'TARANTULAS' graphics on a monster truck, if you wanted to have some connection in vehicle mode.

    Predacons look kickass! Any chance at doing Dinobot or Scorponok to complete the original ten?
