    Dai Atlas is repainted from a Star Wars Crossover Commander Cody figure. The head is from Cybertron Snarl and the horns were made by using the leftover plastic bits of a model car kit.

    I really can't say where the idea for this custom came from. I bought the figure to customize, but I never could think of what character to create. Then looking at it one day, Dai Atlas just popped into my head. I think the "wings" may have had something to do with it.

    Well...It's certainly different...

    Not that that's a bad thing, just don't really see Dai Atlas in that mold. Although, the idea's growing on me.

    This is nice :thumb  But Snarl has a big nose, he needs more normal bot face. But I LOVE the color scheme here.

    Thanks. :) 

    It's more of a reimagining of Dai Atlas, so it's going to be different than the regular Dai Atlas.

    This is interesting. Do you plan on adding more color? It looks unfinished.

    i like where you went with this quite a lot, its a shame a few of the wheels couldnt be removed from this mold, its really the only thing that bothers me. otherwise i feel like this is a great execution, awesome work!

    Nope. This was pretty much made for a stop-motion movie (series) I'm planning on creating. In it Dai Atlas is an Elite Guard spy/scout. His dark, few colors really help him hide in the shadows of a dark, war-torn Cybertron. I need to write a bio for this guy and put it in the first post.

    Thanks.
