    Tarantulas, the mad scientist of the Decepticon forces. Megatron doesnt trust him, but cannot ignore his brilliance even if it borders on insanity. Tarantulas will go along with the war against the fleshlings, keeping to himself the true intentions of his voyage to earth. The Vok![​IMG]

    On a custom note, this is like my 5th repaint 3rd for a TF, an I honestly think the paint apps came out really well i took my time and was patient with the project. I saw Tarantulas as soon as i looked at the mold and think its a pretty decent representation of him, even his vehicle mode is some what accurate.

    C&C welcome

    This mold is inspired by the CanAm Spider three wheeler and you turn him into Tarantulas. Coincidence?

    Nicely done! I have plans to make a Razorbeast out of this mold, so it's cool to see other people's takes on movieverse BW characters. :)

    You did an awesome job man. This mold fits Tarantulas very well, I might do the same thing.

    Such a great idea! Works perfectly with these colours on that mold, especially the head. Makes the wheel kibble look good too by fitting the character.

    Thanks everyone for nice cooments

    Yeah you wish....I could have taken you

    Yeah thats what i was looking at too when i saw the wheels that and the vehicle mode sold me on it. the fact the head matched too was the icing.

    You should id love to see it!

    I would love to be able to do them all, but unfortunately, i dont own any money to invest in projects like that.
