    Well this is my second custom and I'm pretty happy with the results. I had some black and purple paint leftover from Mrs. Devy so I made this. I did my first mini bash for the head because a'hides head did not really match mm's. I used a head from the skyblast repaint for the tf movie line, some dremeling and superglue and I got a pretty good match.

    I have to give full credit and thanks to REDLINE for 2 reasons. First, I borrowed his idea from transtopia about using hotwheels trailers for armorhide. Secondly, I got the idea of a motormaster from reading the story about how his motormaster was stolen at botcon:(  So here's my tribute to the sinister one known as, MOTORMASTER!!! Enjoy and all feedback is greatly appreciated...

    I like the trailer and the new head that you put on. Is it Energon Skyblasts?

    Yeah that's him. I actually bought it to do this and to use the energon weapon as a sword but I realized that the cockpit was attached to his head and it also didn't have a balljoint, so I cut off a'hides head with these plastic cutters and dremeled skyblast's head apart and vwalla!!!

    For the trailer stripes I used tamiya masking tape, works wonders. I had tried 3m which is what I use for spraying, but it didn't get a good seal so it bled thru on my test tf. Thanks for the compliments!!!

    Wow, that looks really cool. Any plans for the other Stunticons? Personally I think Cybertron Clocker would make for a good Dead-End or Breakdown in that scale.

    Good work, but his head looks almost feminine (maybe it's the lipstick?).

    I want to do the other stunticons but I'm stuck for ideas. I've thought about mini-cons but I have also though about using some loc's from cybertron like hotshot or something like that or using some of the other basic figures. Any ideas or suggestions??

    Mini-cons might be a bit small but LOCs are probably a bit too big.

    Hmm.
