    So here is my first custom Transformer. I've done other custom figures in the past but never attempted a TF. G1 Brawn was my first TF ever so it seems very fitting that my first custom is Deluxe class Animated Brawn.

    Made from an Electrostatic Soundwave and a heavily modified Animated Snarl head.

    I screwed up in buying paint so the green is brushed on enamel. Everything else is Testors Acryl and it's all coated in Testors Acryl Flat Clear Coat. Decals are ReproLabels.

    Any comments are welcome! and the second one is already well in the works. ;)

    Alt Mode Pics!

    Alt Mode Pics! Just a note, the bottom side skirt in the alt mode was out of whack from the factory. I never could get it to line up exactly right. Quality control was actually pretty poor on this figure to begin with. The RatBat is missing a crucial pin that help keep him stable during transformation.

    Looks great. My E.Soundwave transforms the same way. I also hate how the legs don't straighten up like the original.

    Thank You everyone. This was a lot of fun. :thumb 

    I can't wait to have time to do more on my second. Based on a search it'll be something/someone that hasn't been done in the Radicons before. [​IMG]

    Outstanding work. It sucks that the figure doesn't line up properly. I'll bet the Japanese don't get crap toys like we do.

    Nice! Way better than my first custom is coming out.

    I think you need to get him a weapon. What did he use in the show? A big rock? That should be easy to come by!

    Have you thought at all about trying to swap in some beefier hands so he can make Brawn-like fists?

    I think you're off to a good start here, buddy :) 

    You have been really successful with giving Brawn here a lot of character. Great work, and I hope to see more from you! I hope to see em in person too :)

    Love it, love it, love it!

    That head looks perfect. It's a shame about the QC issue but oh well. What can you do? I hate to see the animated line go but it's really cool to see what other TF characters might have looked like if animated had continued.

    Keep up the good work!
