    Well, here he is. I had teased with him last week but here he is in all of his glory! Rippersnapper was constructed from a variety of parts. The main base is Classics Grimlock, with a little Cruellock mixed in. The shark/creature head is actually Movie Leader Megatron's ass! I was trying to get more of a hammerhead look for this shark mode.
    He is the first of three I will be posting today. Abominus will show up in a few weeks, for now you get to enjoy a few of his individual components!

    Outstanding work, SB!!:thumbs2:  Love the use of leader Megatron parts! Leader Megs actually has great kitbash parts, shame they all don't work together as a whole!
    This on the other hand, is superb! Can't wait to see the whole gang together!:drool:

    wow, they're awesome

    for the effect on the white paint, did you drybrush the white to get it? Or is it airbrush work? its very nice

    SB,

    the creativity you have put into these guys are simply brilliant. This is some impressive kitbash engineering. I'm so curious to see how they will combine because I can't see any visible connectors on any of these guys.

    Hope you don't keep us waiting too long.

    Rippersnapper must be my all time favorite decepticon. I just love the altmode, and the simple robotmode of G1. Your update has those same qualities! A ferocious alt-mode and the very simple and even 'blocky' bot mode!

    dyingwill3rd: You, and a few other folks, were the ones that gave me the idea to start doing the Terrorcons! I remember reading through threads and seeing the "brainstorming" that was taking place for appropriate modes for the T-cons. Your mods and choices of molds have been inspiring, and from what I have read in your threads, you are bringing your vision to life! I NEED to see your Abominus finished, keep up the awesome work!
    I should have Sinnertwin finished this weekend (or early next week.) Hun-grr needs some engineering work still (on the concealed connectors.) Abominus will only have the attachments that he had in his original incarnation, and should be really poseable. Thanks for all the inspiring comments guys!
