    Hey TFW, here is my entry for the TFCon Charity Project 2012, benefiting SABIS.

    Waspinator sick of being tiny insect that people squash! Waspinator, TERRORIZE!

    For this project I decided that I wanted to emulate the Toy version of Waspinator, rather than the On Screen variety. Like most early Beast Wars toys, Waspinator came with 2 heads. One head that resembles something we'd see in G1, a robot. The other, a mutant monstrosity, emulating his Beast Mode, a deadly and aggressive Wasp. I set my goal to make this the focal point of this custom. I hope you enjoy :) 

    Waspy in his Helicopter mode:

    "Waspinator hide face, show everybot who is master now!"

    The mask is built from a Kamen Rider S.H.Figuarts toy. Points to anyone who guesses which one! :D  The Shoulders/intakes are bicycle reflectors.

    One of the biggest things that I was going to leave out was the ability to store his mask in Vehicle Mode. HOWEVER, by COMPLETE ACCIDENT, that feature was automatically built in. All you do is put the mask upside down on his face XD

    Sweet custom, though the title was hat really caught my eye. He's called Earth mode because he's a helicopter and not a wasp, but his wasp mode is an Earth mode.

    That show head is sick in the most awesomest way.

    Nope ;) 
    Yeah, I was thinking about that. While not accurate, I still like the sound of it. Better than calling it "Vehicle Mode Waspinator" or "G1 Waspinator". I completely understand what you mean though!
    XD Give me some time, I need to unpack from TFCon and then I can whip one up.

    I got to meet you briefly when you, I and Transformatics (2nd place 3D winner) took that photo together. Great job on it! I honestly wanted this custom to win the most. It just seemed so colourful and creative. You did an excellent job!

    Great figure! Great work and very good mold choice, with his mask he really screams Waspinator to me.
