    Whilst reading through the "Radicons you admire" thread, I started to wonder what the actual makers of the customs regarded as their personal favourites. The ones that you look at on the shelf and feel particularly proud about.
    My first repaint is kinda messy (alt Soundwave from the Ram with Laserbeak gun) but I really like him. alt Sixshot from Grimlock is another

    Of course, they pale in comparison to the works of others (I have samples from Vector, Sodawilly, Hicks Royel and Jarrod), so what do you guys all like from your own stable?

    Now if we're talking of our own customs,then my Classics Overhaul(My fan made character) is my favorite done by me.

    As for others?frenzy_rumble's Devastator is my favorite then.

    My favorite Custom is my first real custom that I did(2 before it were only repaints). First time sculpting with Aves Sculpting products for the scratch built head. Winning first place in a contest I entered it in was icing on the cake.

    Second Favorite has to be my most unique figure Captain Hulk, I poured hours upon hours into this guy and I could not have been happier with the results. Also learned a lot of sculpting techniques such as the one I used to make the spikey chainmail which in my eyes was exactly how I wanted it to look.

    Really though I love all my customs I have done, these two just stick out in my mind more than most.

    So far, I'd say "Classics Overdrive" is my favorite. Which is so close to being displayed here, except I'm being a total sloth about finishing it.

    For others' customs, Hammerlock is mine as well (especially since he's on my top shelf). pk's Alt Megs is up there too (literally as well, since I have him standing right next to Hammerlock). I recently got pk's Kab and I'd say he ranks up there as well. Another one of my favorites is the BT Trailbreaker sodawilly made for me. I'm also very fond of the Alt Hot Rod from Squall42080 that I turned into my Alt Redline as well as the Alt Runamuck that I finished of Squall's. One of my absolute favorite customs I own is the last custom that vector made: my Alt Magnus.

    As far as my own work, my first custom, HOT PURSUIT is a favorite of mine simply because of him helping me take the plunge into this hobby nearly 4 years ago. Beyond that, I'm really proud of my SOUNDBLASTER and my Alt Seekers. Though he's more of a "minor player" in my stories and such, REV is a favorite of mine for many reasons.

    I do have a few pieces that I still have to shoot some galleries of that I really like. I'm hoping I'll be able to post em here in late December or so. Stay tuned! :)

    Haven't made it yet. I've done stuff I like in places, but I always look at stuff after and pick it to pieces about how I could have done it better.

    My battle damaged Grimlock was a rare exception to that, because it was so unplanned and organic, I just did it without thinking it out and it came out pretty much exactly how I wanted. The gun turned out really great too I felt, given I just sorta threw it together too. But it was mostly just a repaint (other than the gun and chest mod) so I didn't feel like I did much on it creatively, yeah?

    I'm still working towards a custom I can really be proud of, although the day I ever get too happy with myself is the day I've probably jumped the shark with this hobby.

    My own, it'll have to be TWW Grimlock. It's my first scrathbuild and it won me an award. The other would be Alt Viagra Prime because it's my namesake =P (one is my Avatar and the other is my sig ;)  )

    Others, it'll have to be TFMaster's MP Menasor and F-R's Devastator. When completed, I'll probably add Anemis' MP Skylynx. That thing is a thing of beauty so far.

    BTW Erech, that Grimlock is ace. I didn't see a thread for that.

    Thanks man. Dunno if I ever posted the full gallery for that, I'm kinda bad about doing that.

    I should post some stuff this weekend while I have some free time.

    Also, your WWGrimlock is on a short list of awesome scratchbuilds on my list, just great work.

    I think it's no secret that VP's WW Grimlock is on my list of favorite customs ever. I'd love to own one, so it could be on my list in this thread! :ev

    Favorite custom I've made? That would have to be my Classics Galvatron! This sucker was "finished" back in April of this year, but over the last couple of months, I've re-visited it and I've now added quite a few new mods to it (that have yet to be posted). Once it is complete, I will put up the new pictures (since these pics, I've added a ball joint to the head, cut off his hands and added Master Grade Gundam hands on ball joints and I've been working on a mod around the top of the chest/neck area). These are a few of the old pics:

    I'm gonna have to go with my Galvatron. He was one of the few pieces I couldn't part with cause he fit so darn well with the Classsics line.

    I'm a little late to the party, but my favorite has to be my Gobots Crasher.

    She came out a lot better than I thought and has given me confidence in terms of my customizing skills. I used to just stop halfway through a project because I got easily discouraged. But it all fell into place with this one.

    All in all, a joy to paint and making her weapon was was really fun.
