    I've had like two people ask me to do this, so I'll give in. Seen below are my custom Decepticons from TLK:

    I think they look pretty cool. Dreadbot Hooligan especially looks badass! :) 

    I think the only ones who could use more work are Onslaught and Mohawk. If Onslaught's non-transforming, I'd remove the arm kibble and try to replicate his weapons, and also remove the leg wheels and add extra panels on the legs to make up for the lost bulk. Then I'd cut off his head.

    Mohawk... I dunno, honestly. Maybe remove the windshield? His alt-mode doesn't have one, and he was pretty fly for a 'Con, after all. Although I probably wouldn't have used Groove myself, his whack proportions actually work for Mohawk, but the windshield tries to hide it. Maybe glue some spikes to his arms too. I'd also try to make the wheel on his back split down the middle and rest on his shoulders, but I doubt I could do that myself.

    Although, I would probably keep his ankles bent slightly, since Mohawk had digitigrade legs, IIRC.

    Also, if we do get a Crowbar, you could always transplant his head onto Hooligan, although the stock head works too. And it might be worth a try to add a bit of silver weathering on Megs. Just a bit of drybrushing works wonders.

    Overall, not terrible work! I say that Hooligan is proof you can customize! :thumb

    Thanks man. I'll try to figure out some things to improve on Mohawk and Onslaught. Appreciate the suggestions! It's just my first time "hardcore" customizing rather than just adding highlights. Thanks again!

    Will you be doing a custom berserker in the future? Also how did you get to do Onslaught?

    I'm still thinking for Berserker. For Onslaught, I got my Long Haul, cut off the dump truck parts, and got the smokestacks and back wheels from a junker DOTM Optimus

    So then Onslaught doesn't transform then? IN any case still a great work! Hoping you can do the 'bots soon

    Unfortunately, yes he does not transform. I have a junker Mixmaster I can mod to fill in Onslaught's tow truck form (lol). Thanks man :)  The bots are also coming soon, as soon as I fix the scratch on my Bee

    He still transforms, albeit it's still the Suburban just painted rusty. I plan on just painting it to resemble the VW bus in the movie. I'm not going to display him in v mode, so I think it's fine?

    Well there's a very specific combo of bots most people use for Mohawk.

    If you don't want to get this, then i guess you can try and get scout class tailpipe from DOTM. he has a much closer bot mode. You'll still need dorm laserbeak for the head.
