    I kissed sentinel prime, and he turned into a frog!

    This is animated Spittor. I couldn't make him look like he does on the show, but since his Team Charr chums Blackout and Oil Slick got visits from the Earth Mode Makeover Faerie, I figured he'd work as a septic truck.

    I made a vid explaining the conversion from sentinel to spittor:
    Custom Animated Spittor (earthmode) WIP - YouTube


    Robot mode, sans accessories:

    I probably could have just painted a frog face on SP's old chest, but noooo, I had to make things difficult. And why? For this:


    Robot mode with tentacles:

    But that's not the only pointless accessory I made. Oh no!


    Altmode, with tank attachment:
    [​IMG]

    I'll be honest. I'm not very happy with how the tank came out. But otherwise he wouldn't be a septic truck. *shrug* Course, it can just as easily be left off the altmode. Note the giant, frog-eye-shaped red running lights on the side there. Trucks have those, right? This photo makes me really glad I spent all that time painting SP's blue parts into a slightly darker, slightly more purple shade of blue.


    Robot mode, with tank attachment:
    [​IMG]

    In bot mode, the tank converts to a handheld weapon. In an ideal world, it would squirt water. Again, I'm not superhappy with this thing. It was kind of an afterthought.

    It can also hang on his back. Which is REALLY interesting.


    Here he is with the rest of Team Charr:

    (They have scale issues!)


    and here he is with the other two animated decepticons I've made who were on the show but didn't get official toys:

    Good god those tentacles scared the shit outta me...

    You need to post a pic with an anime girl running away from him with his tentacles out so I can caption it. It would "seen enough hentai to know where this is going", of course :p

    Pretty awesome dude. That blue looks really nice and your sculpting work is looking really clean. I never would've thought to use Sentinel for Spittor.

    Can you file down the ends of the pneumatic tubes to make them pointy?

    Wow! Nice job!
    Never thought some existent mold could fit Spittor body-type. Great eye to find the correct mold and very good hands to do the job itself. Congratulations!

    And are you doing Slapper? We need to know if this mod looks better with less blue ;)

    I dig everything except the Tanker Logo. It... irks me. I feel like if you can go the extra mile in making this awesome custom, you can make a realistic looking logo...
