    This was a custom I made for a Masters of the Universe Transformers Crossover Challenge on Sector 70. My entry was Evilyn. I used Animated Blackarachnia and painted her up in Evilyn colors. The inspiration was the Evilyn and Optimus picture. I am not a kit basher but I was able to use Blackarachnia's weapon and turned it into Evilyn's staff. I used a marble as the orb.

    Oh yeah, It's same purple as my Universe Cyclonus and a custom shade of purple too.

    ooo I like! That is something I was thinking to, but other way around! Giving a purple mettalic to the mettal, and a brushed out look for the black... But I love your version!!!

    Like I said in another tread, I'm glad to see that this figure is paintable after all, the plastic had got me scared it' would melt or something
    Oh I've forgot! The spear is awesome!

    Thanks. It's paintable but I do notice that the paint flakes a little on the softer plastic because they bend so easy. If you are careful, the paint stays on it fine.

    Thanks guys. I think kitbashing is when you combine parts or make new ones from scratch. My stuff are just repaints but I see myself getting better evertime.

    Awesome job! It's a great repaint/minor kitbash.

    I'm hoping to see lots of good customs from that crossover challenge. I hope to see more from you in the future too.
