    Since TF customs seem so popular, and lots are sold on ebay, I've always noticed that there never really seems to be any custom figures in the collections I see. Do people not like to display customs and only official figures? I myself make minor changes to some figures. I haven't really seen a collection thread from a Radicon but are there any Radicons here that display their own customs in their collections?

    What does everybody you think of custom figures in your collection?

    I have 14 g1 seekers. I made/customed 6 of them. I've also done a few other figures, and they are on display with the rest of my figures.

    I'll admit that I haven't done too many full sized TF customs, but I do have several legends and Robot Heroes that I've customized and included in my collection. I like displaying them together. It makes my collection unique, I think.

    Over 70 percent of my collection is customized. The only ones that aren't that I can name on the top of my head are Cybertron Repugnus, Ransack GTS, and the ROTF Constructicons

    Thank you, sir! I've made most myself, and also have gotten some from other artists :) 

    I hate that the photo is out of date. The giveaway is that I don't have MP Thundercracker displayed in that photo :lol

    I don't care for them at all.

    I'm not saying that there isn't good work out there, but they just don't have a place in my collection.

    I have a few customs in my collection: half I bought, the other half I made myself. I haven't posted a picture of my collection because it's fairly modest and nothing that hasn't already been seen, save for some of those customs.

    I think the main reasons you don't see so many customs in a TF collection are: (1) they're one-of-a-kind pieces, and (2) the costs associated with commissioning them.

    As long as they look good then you bet! I've got several I've customized both G1 and Classics in my collection.

    for sure, i try to make my customs look like factory paint (ie. no weathering etc) so they don't stand out in my collection, if you look in my thread, you'll see squalkbox, some painted up wst combiners etc

    I'm one of those people who lies their toys original and untouched. Don't get me wrong, there are some incredible customs out there, but they would in no way fit into my collection.
