    A character from my fan fic. Earthshaker is a destroyer of worlds as he can absorb any form of energy through his charge absorbing armour.

    The custom itself is a modified Universe overload, with parts taken from an energon cruelock and a spare cannon from a warhammer 40,000 basilisk model kit.

    Crackling with lightning...Not quite. I'm kinda disappointed that the blue is just painted on. I guess i sorta expected some trenches dug out with a dremel or something, and then painted blue. I suppose i was expecting something 3D. *shrugs*

    You mean you wanted texture and/or depth. The toy is in 3D, it has 3 dimensions like pretty much everything else in the real world.

    I like the imaginative deco. Not sure the name fits though as Earthshaker provokes images of a giant beast that creates quakes as it trudges. Something with maybe shatter in its name might work imo.

    Great work though :thumb

    I'm gonna assume you say that in a sarcastic manner...

    What i mean is that generally in most customs where is looks almost like there is energy almost bursting out of him/it (good examples are The Fallen), the energy isn't just painted on, it is generally actual seams, or other molded detail.

    That's not to say this isn't good, just different. Very original.

    This one? "Star Trek: The Next Generation" Identity Crisis (1991)

    (Retro Toy Review: ToyFare Geordi Laforge As Tarchannen III Alien)

    ****

    Personally, I'm just not a fan of figures painted to show energy or other elements (which is one of the reasons I'm not a huge fan of the Fallen). That being said, I think you did a good job with your idea. [In a good way] this custom reminds me quite a bit of the Fallen. :thumb
