    Hello all I wanted to update the G1 Scoop Figure. Yes i will also be making holepunch and traser later but that will be a while so at the moment he is lacking his target master partners.
    Keeping him close to the original but still a nice update, sorry for the pics being wonky, i need to fix the setting on my camera.
    Enjoy

    thanks guys. He was really fun to make. not totally happy with the paint and how thick some of it turned out to be. I really enjoyed reworking the shovel gimmick. Decided I definately dont like painting with yellow. Who is this quake of which you speak?

    Excellent work on this, bro! I've been debating on doing this character with one of the Energon Constructicons (since I have an extra laying around). Still debating that, but I really dig this, man. You just gave me an awesome idea for Scrapper (got a Devastator planned, which won't happen for a WHILE, but with the way you did the scoop, it makes me want to do something similar to make my Scrapper different from the others that have been done--I'll plan to connect it again somehow when the time comes).

    Again, great work and I'm looking forward to seeing his little pals.

    Not only is this custom well done (at least from what I can tell, but you've got this covered already, as you've stated above), but it's one of those pieces that makes sense on such a fundamental level. Add to the fact that it's obvious Hasbro still has this mold active, I can totally see this being made officially.

    I'd also like to comment on the nature of your post. Anyone who's kept up with your work like I have knows that you are always pushing yourself as far as you can go. You've really came a very long way with your work, and you never settle. The majority of your post is you obviously being very proud of your work (as you should), sharing it with us sincerely, but already going through the process we all go through with our work of critiquing it ourselves. You could have just as easily posted "Universe Scoop, TM bots to come later. Enjoy.", but you didn't.

    Your work and your humility is always a breath of fresh air in this community. Great work :thumb  I'm sure the updates with the binary partners will be even cooler :)

    Damn! Nice job man. This was one of the ones on my list to do whenever I get the balls to do a custom haha

    You should do cybertron Quickmix in red and Energon Demolishor into Landfill to go with him.
