    First post- UPDATED 2/28 WITH DIO PICS!

    Hey!
    I've been lurking around here for quite some time admiring the fantastic work showcased here and learning and trying new techniques. This is the first of my customs I've decided to post. I've had a bio written for him for a long while and I've finally completed the custom to go with it. I would love to know what you think. Thanks for looking.

    Name: Metalstorm
    Faction: Decepticon
    Sub-group: Seeker Jets
    Function: Air to ground heavy assault


    Metalstorm remembers a time in the history of the Cybertronian wars when ballistic weaponry was the order of the day. Unlike laser fire which cauterizes the damage it inflicts, high powered ballistic rounds rip through armor plate leaving gaping exit wounds that gush vital fluids. Multiple wounds of this kind spell certain doom for the victims of such a barrage. Metalstorm can fire 100 high powered, explosive, armor piercing rounds a second from his custom built battle cannons with astounding accuracy. The Decepticon goal of total domination suits him just fine and he revels in the destruction that he causes. He is unpredictable and difficult to control and his fellow Decepticons are not very fond of him. They keep him around because of his sheer brutality. Autobots know to take cover when they hear the roar of his cannons. Getting caught in one of Metalstorm’s strafing runs means almost certain death.

    Weaknesses: Metalstorm is deaf. The constant roar of his battle cannons has done irrevocable damage to his auditory receptors. His inability to communicate with his fellow Decepticons makes him incapable of taking orders in the field and therefore dangerous and unpredictable. He is not a team player. The enormous weight of his weaponry and ammunition makes him the slowest of the Decepticon Jets. Supersonic flight is a struggle for him and even when on the attack he is perceived as lumbering compared to his Seeker compatriots. While he claims that the use of non- laser weaponry makes him a more conservative energon consumer, carrying the weight of his weaponry causes him to devour a good deal more than he conserves.

    wow. That is really nice. Good job. If you revisit this then you may want to change the paint on the head to make it mesh a bit more with your pallet. Otherwise, very good.

    This is amazing. Guns are an excellent choice and really make this guy look like he's gonna tear some heads off. Keep it up!

    Thanks! I thought about making the head green or brown rather than black, but the pureist in me won out! I went with the classic look. Thank for the advice!

    Welcome, Radicon! What a great way to start out by posting none other than a custom Seeker. You get bonus points for that one! He looks great and I love the camo apps you've placed on him! Great work, and I hope we see more! :thumb

    Yeah, that's a great paint job. I too have to know what/where those miniguns came from.

    The guns are from those Chap Mei Gi joe knock off type figures. They look great, but they're made from some kind of weird plastic that won't accept paint apps of any kind. The paint literally falls right off when it dries- I couldn't even dye them. As a result one is a slightly different shade of black than the other. Thanks for the interest.

    Wow this looks amazing, what a sweet paint job! And the guns in robot mode are perfect, a little big in jet mode, but still awesome.

    I really love this custom. I like the fusion of the 2 Classics seeker molds and the guns are just different. Definitely steps above a generic repaint.
