    UPDATE : Necros is completed and ready to battle.

    i've decided to take a stab on kitbashing...
    I'm using the Neo-Shifter called Blaze Axx as a base..( minus all the armor and such ) It'll be a Frankenstein-ish TF.. but wont have a alt.mode. ( due to the bio i made up for him )

    Anyways, his name is Necros. he's an Autobot who was captured , stripped of his alt.mode and experimented on by Shockwave. He escapes and seeks to destroy Shockwave. His only special ability is regeneration..

    No pics up yet. but to give some hints.. He's got Movie Starscream's cannon arms shoulder-mounted, along with parts of the security recon repaint Barricade...more to come....

    any ideas/ advice are welcome.

    ps dont mind the pic.. i couldnt post without uploading a pic of something.....

    he's got Recon Barricade's hood on his arms, Movie Starscream's cannons mounted on his back along with Movie Starscream's cockpit in his chest..

    thinking of adding other parts of Transformers to him...
    any advice/ suggestions,,etc... are more than welcome.

    that's certainly interesting. the only thing I don't care for is it looks like the thighs are a huge weakpoint of the character.

    you can't just toss the towel just because you hit a snag. Snags are there in any GOOD kitbash project (I say kitbash, not repaints necessarily) and overcoming them is one of the most rewarding parts! The sense of accomplishment is that much greater in the end.

    Good luck, my man. You could try to make it a bash you come back to if it keeps frustrating you. Just don't throw in the towel.

    and on a side note, if a mod would be so kind ... could my thread title be changed to Death and Rebirth of Necros ?

    UPDATE: the styrene wasnt working for me so i took it off..another wip pic.... the more i work with him , the more i think he'd make a better decepticon than autobot..( forgive the quality.) my camera's size is set to 2560x1920..

    [​IMG]

    im adding Classic Starscream's Null Ray cannons to his legs and Movie Ironhide's Cannon( the combined version ) into the hole in his chest.
    suggestions , tip, etc are always welcome.

    So uh, maybe you can pull a Nemesis Prime/REDLINE and force a mangled/tortured Autobot to switch factions. XP

    I like the amount of metal look on this guy. Makes 'im look incomplete, which works for the character.

    Now um. . . What're you doing with the leftover Ironhide? =3

    i started this kitbash with the whole mangled/tortured hero idea in my head... the metal look is from Tamiya gunmetal spraypaint.
    Necros wears the mask to conceal his mangled face. i went over the mask with a black sharpie marker.

    Thanks for the comments fellas! im really happy with how it turning out so far! As for the rest of Ironhide... he's just hanging out on my shelf...weaponless..mwhahaha!!!

    so far he's made up of : Recon Barricade, Bionicle, a neo-shifter, weapons from Ironhide and Classics Starscream...
