    Well here's my latest additions to my collections, well actually I don't have them yet but once they are complete and I recieve them I'll take more pics. These were done by a former-member of the boards that hasn't been around for awhile and while SHE may be gone she's not forgotten by some of us. I've always enjoyed seeing her repaints of Optimus Prime and i'm very impressed with the work she did on these. The Sunstorm is a work in progress after a failed first attempt but the second time around is looking 100% better. The heads on Ratchet and Ironhide are custom heads from Scuplt-bot, thanks again.


    Now I read the rules (#18) and I'm posting MY transformers, no one elses.....these belong to me. If I have mis-read the rules then please inform me. I hope everyone enjoys the pics and let me know what you think.

    I really, really like that Ratchet. Did you hand sculpt the face mod?

    nice lot, easily identified who each one was supposed to be. Any reason you have three pictures duplicated?

    Yeah, I'd confirm these as the original source ideas for these customs.

    Citations FTW! :) 

    While you may own these actual Transformers, all ckhtiger is trying to do is claim credit for his conceptual work (of which he has the right to do since he originally created the ideas).

    Just so you know, per TFW2005.com board rules, you don't have anything to worry about (you're not trying to post messages or content from said board member. :thumb 

    It's just always a polite and truthful thing to do when an idea originates somewhere else, to just give credit where credit is due. :)

    Hmmm... y'know, if I'm not mistaken, I think RID Wedge was probably the model/source for the Ironhide and Ratchet heads. I was wondering when someone would try that. :) 

    Any reason I can't get any of those links to work?

    I'm assuming it would have something to do with the move from the main board to the minisite that is now Radicons. That's just a shot in the dark though.

    Props do go to ckhtiger for the idea for these but i wasn't trying to take anything away from him just forgot to mention, my bad. As far me saying these are MINE, i meant that a person that is no longer a board member repainted these for me but I didn't want anyone to think i was breaking the rules by posting something that belongs to a non-board member

    hey, no worries! I just have put a lot of time and effort into what is going to eventually be a 15 figure custom set, and I was real proud of that warpath and gears as I don't believe they had ever been done before.

    Great job on all of 'em, especially the heads on Ironhide and Ratchet. Those two could both use their respective stripes on their alt modes though to break up all that red/white.
