Does anyone ever customize/enhance their Transformers?

    I ask this question because years ago all the details were either chromed or decals (Which neither aged well).

    A LOT of the coolest generations/RTS figures I have noticed have their details molded in the same color as the figure. Special Ops Jazz for instance.. his rims are the same color as his tires...his exhaust is molded into the bumper and even his tail lights are the same color as his body.

    I was asking my friend whom I do a lot of model railroading with if we should pull Jazz, Ironhide, etc out of my display case this winter (When we do all of our modeling) and do some detail work on them... Rims, tail lights, exhaust, etc. He thinks I should just leave them alone but their lack of fine details is annoying. Their Henkei/UN counterparts look awesome and I want the same look.

    I just got 2 sheets of Autobot insignias from ebay for the RTS line because I could care less about the dumb rubsigns.... RTS is a stupid line for the rubsigns cause other than Lugnut and Cyclonus, there are NO decepticons anyhow.

    Anyone else brave customizing them?

    Nope, nobody ever customizes their TFs. We don't have a whole section of the forum devoted to it or anything like that. There's not a website that makes a ton of custom sticker sets to do it either.

    My Hero Megatron's got a smaller shoulder cannon that I guess you could say is custom, but yeah.

    At this point, it's sort of like asking if we "still buy them".

    Oh my bad I don't know my way around this site very well. If anything I was just making small talk or sharing my thoughts, my apologies for sounding like captain obvious:)

    It's all good. At least now, you've got an entire section to poke around that peeks your interest.

    Yep, I used both peek & poke in the same sentence.

    Go for it! Doesn't matter how small the project is. What's important is if painting/modding the figure enhances your enjoyment of it.

    With production costs going up and up and volume retailers digging their heels in, there's going to be even less factory paint in the future.


    Also. None of us are sarcastic.


    Ever.


    Really.



    What?

    Only mods I ever done were: Give BB Bumblebee Cannon Bumblebee's forearms, and swap parts around from Recon Ironhide to TF07 Ironhide.
