    I always loved the art design of Antagony. So I opted to make one.
    I didn't want to use Inferno as a base because I honestly wanted a more feminine frame...And Waspinator was quite accommodating for that.

    Took a Generations Waspinator(actually a botcon purple Waruder) and:
    - Removed wings&wing mechanisms.
    - Removed stinger and replaced with machine gun barrel.
    - Resculpted face slightly to add a proper mouth, lips, and overall make it a bit more feminine.
    - Stiffened the feet joints with glue so that they could actually support her(mine arrived very loose) and allow her feet to pose properly as high-heels.
    - All the red parts have a single coat of glow-in-the-dark Pink on them to make them pop more, the inner chest slab is meant to be hidden and I was originally going to have a Predacon spark hidden within to reveal...But then I realized I didn't quite have the clearance to feel comfortable doing that.

    - Beast Mode -

    - I'm aware that Antagony's beast mode eyes are supposed to be red, but since I was going for a "Black Ant" beast mode, I opted for very dark blue metallic instead. The purple and red used were also made much darker along with the gray/silver mix on a few pieces.

    - Comparison -

    The closed chest, high heel mistransformation, and lack of wings really help distinguish the two even without the different paint scheme highlights.


    This is one of those customs that I can be proud of, let go of, or keep forever as it fits nicely in my Masterpiece collection. All possible results sound good to me.

    Awesome idea, the sculpting on the face and paint job really make her look different to Waspinator and this may sound silly but I'm really impressed with how much she looks like an ant in beast mode just by removing the wings.

    Great job, I've been thinking about doing the same thing.

    Beautiful work. One thing, however, that I believe would elevate this figure would be a longer set of antennae. Perhaps her current set could be moved closer to the mandibles to act as pedipalps. Regardless of my input, know that it is again indeed beautiful.
