    By all means my first attempting at doing a custom. I have not done alot of painting in my time but I really wanted to try my hand at this and see what turned out.

    Honestly I felt that I made alot of first mistakes, either sanding to much, cutting away to much of the plastic, or trail an error with paints, but continued to run with this idea. In the end im semi happy with it and might attempt to redo it with the better ideas i had while making it sometime in the future.....

    Hope all of you enjoy....an yes as a newbie im open minded to all critique/criticism.
    :D  thanks for looking​

    wow it looks really good and pretty accurate to the shows depiction (what little we saw of her) sad there is no alt mode but it looks good nonetheless

    Why are you disappointed with that in any way?

    It's fantastic!

    looks fantastic. It really captures the Animated look&feel (which is very hard to achieve)

    THIS, is your first bash?!?!?! It's amazing!

    Too bad about the alt mode, though.

    Wow. Alt mode or not, that is really well done. I especially like the head. Very cartoon-accurate.

    Dont be so hard on yourself. For a first attempt, you did a fantastic job. She looks great :thumb 

    Looking forward to seeing more from you in the future.

    Terrific! You really nailed her character model. I think I recognize Ratchet's legs, Jazz's arms and Bumblebee's torso under there; am I missing anything? That's tremendously ambitious, especially for a first 'bash! Love the picture with Hot Shot, incidentally. I hope we'll be seeing more from you in the future!

    Thanks all, I really did not know what to expect from the crowd here when I posted her. Really helps with a boost of confidence.

    As far as an alt mode, I continued to look at her design and the parts I was using and just figured it wouldve been to tough for a first project. Her alt mode is a rectangular box from what i remember, might redo and make this work in the future, maybe even a earth mode


    never been real big into forums, found a decent picture and ran with it...might need to change it now :lol 

    Thanks, I was mainly unsure of my painting, didnt know if i could hack it in the radicons section. Ill continue to practice, not too sure whats in store for me in the future, i just got to have the right idea or something that seems cool.


    Good eye, jazz's hips, and his hood is her head flare. Modified BBs chest, with a couple of spare parts from one of those ghastly star wars transformers(clearance sales rule),....and the head from crystal widow, however i accidently destroyed her face, and its mainly 70% epoxy....Her head sculpt is something I continually second guessed, I just didn’t find anything else that just stood out to me that would be a good replacement.
