    Hi, due to my full bandwidth, I wasn't able to timely upload this custom. Moreover, I wasn't able to wipe him clean so some dust specks are visibile. And since setting this up takes a while, I decided not to have another run of shots. Nevertheless, i still hope you enjoy it.

    Btw, I tried the carbon fiber hood effect I found at sector 70 and I'm quite satisfied. However since the size of this figure is a bit small, finding a mesh that will match the scale has been a challenge. I guess this is the closest that i can get in terms of scale

    I love how much detail you put into the face/head/horns. The paint is super nice, and I even like the carbon fiber, it gives a little detail to him.

    You need to make headsculpt molds for Cliff and Wasp, and sell them. You'd make a killing

    Much, much better than my red bumblebee.
    Very cool head sculpt, and I love the design on the hood.

    Yeah seriously, talk to someone in casting, and see if they'll make copies of it. I've been thinking of doing a Cliffy for a WHILE. I like that you did the carbon fiber thing on the hood. So basically you "shrunk" the eyes and nose, pushed the mouth further up, and beefed/rounded up his chin?

    Definitely like this.

    Amazing work man! I did it a lot. I personally prefer activators versions of these guys for scale reasons but your head sculpts for the deluxe size are Awesome! I would love to have a Wasp head, even if it's a deluxe size

    I'm really new at this and to date this is just my 4th custom. The comments that i received from you guys are really overwhelming. Sharing my work is just one way of repaying the whole community not limited to tfw2005 alone for all the info and resources that lead me to this custom.

    But for now, my hands are full and i really don't have time to oversee reproducing them. But definitely i'll take note of this and consult people who can help me with such. I'm actually located in Manila, Philippines so shipping might be a challenge plus the fact that i haven't tried shipping anything local yet.

    Again, thanks to all.

    Just the size I have in mind, but since i'm using paintbrush, i guess it might not be feasible. Honestly, te effect that I have on CJ looks like waffle patterns, so I might really remodify him to reflect smaller grids. Thanks


    @mampy and Yuujin-mikeru: I'm glad to see you here and that you liked it. thanks

    @Maximo Prime - that's it. Actually i just copied how he looks like in the series. Also, i tried not to think that CJ looks like BB. That way BB's look won't affect whatever is the outcome of CJ's head
