    Here's my Botcon '10 Contest entry, IDW Thunderwing.

    Work on him first began about 3 years ago, before my Nova Prime. The project was on hold for quite some time, then picked up again in 2009. The character used for the base model was Cybertron Supreme Starscream, heavily modified and re sculpted. Thunderwing also sports 2 full Galvatron bodies for thrusters.

    Full Gallery Here.

    Amazing work! What technique did you use for the bulk of the mods? Putty and styrene?

    This deserves full recognition for the accomplishment. How does the galvatron fit in?

    This is mindblowingly beautiful. Forget the judges, we all know this is a clear winner of many sorts.

    amazing work sir, and that's an understatement. as I said before, I like the face the best, something about it just draws me in every time I see it. 'tis truly a work of art.

    I wonder if IDW got the idea for him from this Gundam: OZ-10VMSX Gundam Aesculapius. Similar colors, similar color placement, and similar transformation.

    This was even more dynamic to see in person, you just had to see it for yourself up close how impressive and detailed it is. When I first saw it, it was from the back and said "holy-f***" There was no doubt in my mind he would place and win. I was totally vexed that it didn't place, but it doesn't matter because it's an obvious masterpiece without saying. :rock 

    Oh, and I fired the judges. :thumb

    It's sad to hear that such creative artist like you, kingbotz, and payton34 all
    got snubbed by the judges at botcon this year.
    This is a massive piece and I only wish I was able to see it up close.
    You guys are all winners in my book man:thumbs2:

    Awesome to finally see colored pics of the other modes. So glad I got to see this behemoth in person! Still shocked you didn't place.
