    Depth Charge in his pre-earth, pre-beast form. A member of the Imperial Peace Marshals, his job was to maintain peace after the Great War.

    Here is a front shot, with the chest markings intended to emulate the original's eyes/mouth/disc launcher.

    This idea started with Animated Starscream, to reverse the orientation of the jet and add a tail. That custom never materialized, but as soon as I saw Scourge, I got to work on him. Thanks to Satomiblood for the cheap Terradive head.

    This was a challenging figure...the white plastic just wouldn't take the paint...seems much harder than typical plastic. There are some lingering issues, so this one isn't for sale, I'm not happy with the quality of the work. Check out my facebook page for some wip shots.

    Another brilliant custom! I got your Tank Scourge in the mail a few days ago, and after seeing what it's like in person, I might have to bid on all your auctions just on principle.

    Amazing! I think Hasbro needs to borrow your idea.

    Here's what I did with the tail.

    [​IMG]

    I essentially hollowed out the feet and filled them with Aves Fixit Sculpt (which is incredible) then pushed the end of the "tail" (sorry G1 Hot Spot) and made a mold to hold it in.

    Ah, so that's where the tail came from? It's from the repair bay?

    NICE! I knew someone would beat me to it!

    I'm going to do the Universe color scheme though, so it'll still be different. I love how this came out!

    The colours are amazing, I love it.
    A minor gripe is that the passenger windows on his alt mode rear threw me off...I was just wondering if the windows could be covered over with sculpt and smoothened so he has a smoother, more organic aft.
