    Well, I've been working on these guys for a while. I wasn't going to get SkyByte, but I found him at a good price, and he pulls the set together. Still missing Slapper. Anyways, here's my custom Pre-BW RiD Predacons in their Cybertronian modes.

    Sky-Byte. I used Fakerbuster's Whirl Claws off of Shapeways and painted them. Couldn't quite match the gray color, but the plastic is hard to paint anyways. I added the yellow to the back of his biceps, and white to his toes. I did a wash on his knee fins which turned out great! I painted his left arm fin blue. I didn't modify anything really, I just Transform his arms more like a shark now.

    Gas Skunk. Gas Skunk was actually 3 Cyb Scrapmetals smashed together that I managed to scrape enough pieces out of. Even though I had the parts, I used Air Hammer's thighs for the upper arms. He's just a straight repaint. Looking at the Yellow Scrapmetal, however, it is almost the exact same colors. Just needs some face paint. Sure would have been nice to have. I hate yellow. Still needs Pred stickers. I do like how the silver on the chest looks almost Vac Metal. :)

    Darkscream. I love this figure. This was HftD Sunspot. I took out the head and neck and managed to work a Darkscream head in its place. I also changed out the crappy Bayformer feet for some real feet from a junker DS. Then I just pained him and tried to get the colors to match. There's a purple wash on him that came out better in some parts (chest) than others. Again, no Pred stickers yet. His nose really does transform right, it's just an awkward angle.

    Oh my... Did you actually use a botcon figure for a custom? It's really beatiful, really, do not misunderstand me, but using such a rare figure like a botcon figure.. :(  (BTW, I was the one who suggested FB to make the whirl claw, and I always knew that it would make a good sky-byte claw :)  just needing the twin missile launcher for hiright arm, and it will be ok!!! :D

    So cool. I thought about doing this a while back. I was going to use the Dune Runner mold from ROTF for Slapper.

    Thank guys! Glad y'all like them.

    I gave brief thought to RotF DepthCharge as Slapper. Still contemplating him. Gigatron is staying as-is, cause he's cybertronian already.

    These are really excellent. I typically am not a fan of that scrapmetal mold but it works surprisingly well for gas skunk, especially the walker mode.

    Still thinking about Slapper. I'd like to have something for him and Spittor as well.

    why dont you use a power core combiner as slapper? some have long arms and well...the overall aesthetic that slapper has, but only undertow is an aquatic vehicle but in robot mode is nothing like slapper
    XP
    here are some candidates
    leadfoot
    smolder (with his arms hanging all the way down)
    sledge(the best for slapper, but its just my personal opinion)
    icepick
