    Custom Decepticons (Shadowcons) (updated 6-7-12)

    I have come up with a way to creatively help out my decepticon side, by creating, and customizing some figures into decepticons. Some altered, and some made up. Here is a list and some ideas I have, and questions of how to do this.

    A sub group of Decepticons I thought of, so far they are kitbashes, BUT, I will paint them soon:

    The Shadowcons
    Black Shadow:

    I switched his arms, I gave him ROTF Sideswipes arms, with the blades off. And I switched his legs to 2007 movie Wreckages. Black and red will be the main colors I paint the limbs.

    Bumbleblood/Deathbite/Reignfire: (3 Cyberfire Bumblebee paints) An entity split within three different Cyberfire Bee molds, One will have it's flames painted Red, another blue, and the third a deep purple.

    Various Bumblebee molds used for a vehicon crew build sort. No names, just re-paints to make the sub group seem big.
    (Not pictured yet)


    Junkicons: Main colors red/black, W.I.P
    Reck-Lar- Wreck gar re-paint, I swapped his arms with Black shadow, and changed parts of his right leg.

    Jun-Kill- Junkheap re-paint
    Still working on ideas

    Terradive: Painted red/Black, and possibly changing legs.
    Still working on Ideas


    These will be some of my first customs/Kitbashes, and I hope I do so decently at least.

    More than likely the alt modes won't work unfortunately.

    I appreciate all the confidence and compliments. These are my first, so I hope I don't ruin the figures :) 

    I'm in the midst of painting parts now. It's not as easy as I expected it to be :(

    Thanks for the responses, and interest.

    I am getting worried about how to disassemble the junkions though. They seem pretty detailed and I don't want to forget how to re-assemble them.

    Close to finished with my Black Shadow minor repaint.

    His arms are drying. But for now. His legs and weapons are fully painted.

    I have horrible camera's, so it doesn't really do this figure justice, I may use my wifes Ipod touch to take some better ones

    these are very sweet mate. I love what you are doing here!
    How are the mods affecting the transformations?

    These I think are going to be just bot modes, unfortunately. But, I did test out Black Shadow, you made me curious. He looks like a bit of a bulky cybertronian plane

    Black Shadow looks sweet. Glad to see you can still get an alt mode out of him. I like the Sideswipe arms you gave him. Never liked the ones he came with (sorry Reck-Lar)

    You know, if you removed the wheels from his legs, you could do interesting things to his jet mode, if you wanted.

    I'm nearly done with Reck Lar, I posted pictures of the face. And I am currently painting the body, which, beyond little detailing, I'm almost finished.
