    Hey all,

    Well, this was originally posted a LONG time ago. Like November, which is when I started work on it. And then procrastination kicked in, and I didn't do any more work on it til today ;) 

    Fangry was one of three Headmasters I had as a kid. The other two were Snapdragon and Mindwipe, who I also hope to update at some point soon. The basic mold was Cybertron Snarl, repainted up in a stunning shade of pink as you can see. The great thing about this mold is there's SO few spots that rub, so very little sanding etc. was needed. No mods to it at all.

    As usual, I used Citadel paints. Mostly custom colours, but including Warlock Purple, Liche Purple, Boltgun Metal, Mithril Silver, Chaos Black, Dark Angels Green, Sunburst Yellow, and several others in varying quantities :lol 

    This was one of the first customs where I tried to do shading as well, notably on the pink (where there's a darker shade of purple behind the main body of the colour to bring out the lines) and on the fur, which was drybrushed with a lighter shade of grey. Irritatingly neither of these came out very well on the photos :( 

    Anyway, as always, critique and comments welcome!

    (and no, his head doesn't come off :lol  one day, maybe I'll try tackle that!)

    That's funny, I was just looking at that exact pic of Fangry trying to think who would be a great mold for a classics version. Great minds...

    Maybe use classics Grimlocks legs?

    I'm trying to remember what my other ideas were but I'm drawing a blank

    2-legged looks fine to me.

    I was thinking Cybertron Liobreaker's arms would work.

    How big is Snarl?

    I think the hind legs are OK, it's just the forearms I'm worried about. I think Grimmy's forearms would look a little TOO T-rex like. I was debating using Animated Swoop's forearms but I think that might be the wrong aesthetic.

    Too big, I think. I did consider that myself. Snarl's a deluxe, so it'd look a bit... disproportionate :lol

    Look at some zoid arms, I'm sure one of the small dion ones would work, actually I'd say look for a bat zoid to steal the wings off aswell.

    Hmm, might work actually. Most specifically his 'bot mode arms.

    Not a bad idea. Any idea where to get them? I was planning on scratch-building the wings.

    An alternative for the arms would be to check out the BW line, being that Fangry is covered in fur, so the look might match. Though I can't think of a mold to suggest.

    Great idea, he'll look good.

    I don't know how the Snarl figure transforms, or if you intend for the wolf arms to become robot arms, but...

    You could modify Cybertron Brushguard's arms?
    They're small like Fangry's, and if you remove the wheels and file down the hand part they'd resemble wolf's claws.

    Battle Ravage would also work.

    E bay, a lot of the on line toy stores still have old stock so you might find something on sale, looking at snarl in hand now you could probably get away with just swapping the front paws given you still need the legs to fold in for the transformation. Other thing with zoids is there parts will fit in with the cyb beast style unless you wanted the fury style of the orginal.

    Yeah, the folding part is the slightly awkward bit ;)  I'm hoping I might actually find a cheap Swoop, it would work well with the wings too...

    Made an executive decision on this one, I'm not going to have him as the Werewolf. Couldn't find anything I was happy with, so have decided to do him as a straight repaint (maybe some minor face mods but not sure yet). Basecoat is on: will update the first page when he's done :)
