    Hey guys this one was completely inspired by my GF and she even helped me by following instructions etc.
    my Ex never appreciated what I did, so this is heaven for me :D  Hope she'll join us @ Radicons sum day :p 

    enough chitchat.. here I proudly present by me & Rowena!

    My (our) Version3 of Classics Arcee
    [will still keep re sculpting the head until I'm satisfied!]

    I will need 2 work out alt-mode, but I was just aiming for a not painting, non base figure damaging custom... so with those in mind, I'm already happy ;) 
    (so bare in mind except the head, nothing of Animated Arcee was modded)

    C&C Welcome ... thnx 4 stopping bye!

    UPDATE1:
    I checked the alt-mode and all parts can intergrate on it..
    Yes again with (minor) partswapping, but atleast the arms fit perfectly
    Also took hours and hours of extra reculpting of 2 heads:
    1. version 2 of the Animated head (no new picture yet!)
    2. an extremely heavy carved/dremeled from a cybertron thundercracker

    I recognize those Vaylk parts! Clever reuse.

    Definitely keep working on the head though, she'll never pass for classics otherwise ;)

    Those arms just don't look right. Way too long and the joints look... odd. The feets are neato, though.

    i feel you, my ex appriciated my artistic talent but was at the same time jealous and couldnt see past that i was "picking my damn hobbies over her" (yeah right, i'd have sold every TF on my shelf if i had to for her)

    i love this arcee and the story behind it, flawless and its simple changes make this figure seem to pop IMO =)

    Now if i can find a girl who'd share my interest in transformers and play team fortress 2 with me and love me unconditionaly i'd be set for life :thumb

    Thnx hopefully 2day ;) 

    yup :)  well I already like the head, but yeah I can prolly do better :p 
    Even if I screw up i'll get 1 of those kits available on TFW sumwhere
    (can't remember where though any1 here who knows sum links?)

    thank u!

    2long? really.. maybe a tiny bit, but I'll make sum new pics for ya ltr, thnx!!

    Already did alot of work on the head as you can see... :D 
    trimmed the upper mohawk thing
    cut of the sides, then used lego studs for sum filling
    carved various panel lines
    made a open mouth (tried 2 get a shouting/screaming look)
    even made a lower lip and slimmed down the cheeks and chin
    O and almost forgot.. I gave her a decent nose :p 

    Prolly ..dunno.. but I googled and this is what it looked like:
    [​IMG]

    I got in in a whole big gundam lot of 16 figures, all where so cool...
    for only 25euro incl shipping.... except I hated the female version :) 
    And my GF didn't want it and said y don't u use it 4 a custom!
    That's how the idea got born :D  so happy she decided not 2 take it hehe!

    Don't worry the right 1 is still out there 4 each & every1 of us! G'luck mate ;) 
    Glad u like it/her hehe.. well I didn't change the Ani RC but I did change and made sum very extensive modding 2 the Gundam/Valkyrie parts so it would fit right onto the parts I popped of Arcee like the lower arms and feet/toes :) 

    I try 2day, who knows maybe I will... but all my previous stuff got canceled due 2 the lack of interest unfortunately :(  but thanks 4 liking it :) 

    Unfortunatly no :(  well ofcrs I didn't change/mod/hurt the Animated RC but I did change/modded sum very extensive alterations 2 the Gundam/Valkyrie parts so it would fit right onto the parts I popped of Arcee like the lower arms and feet/toes :)  I'll try 2 get sum detail pics soon! thnx...

    I had this idea before that the Animated Arcee mold needed 3 (or 4) things to fit into a classics display: a smaller classic style head, smaller hands and forearms, and a thinner colored white waist.
