    G1 GUARDIAN ROBOT

    Going way back in time with time one. Here is, probably omega's cousin, the Guardian Robot from the golden age of Cybertron. He stands 14 in. tall; I didn't want it to look too much like omega supreme so by using a Primal arms to give the fat look, the head with new visor, tracks and chest piece from G1 Omega. Finally painted in blue and white. There you have it the Guardian Robot that creeps out Skywarp.

    More photos to follow soon… thank you guys for viewing

    Super dope. Gotta have the face in there but did the guardians have the tracks on their backs? I don't even remember if they transformed :p

    They did have tracks, they did not transform


    Looks super cool. Did you use an Omega for the base or is it a new mold?

    This looks great, it perfectly captures the look/feel of the G1 toon and comics.

    I would suggest NOT putting a face inside the visor. A face would give more personality to Omega Supreme, for example, but the Guardian Robots were just simple drones so it's unnecessary, IMO.

    I love it. It's a super-advanced giant alien robot, yet compared to Omega Supreme it resembles an archaic prototype. Then again you were aiming for that, right? Nice shot.

    Are those Tidal-Wave's lower legs? Where is the waist/legs from?

    Looks good, I like the mods to make him look less Omega Supremish.

    LOVE THIS!!!!

    I'm guessing Supreme Starscream legs?

    The Primal arms are simply inspired!!

    I think this is one of your best, X!

    I have used mostly for the white color I have used duplic color automotive paint; So far this only white color i had minor issue in regard in fading or scratching easily. then I have clear coat over it. the blue from Tamiya.

    thanks I likey too

    thank you

    thanks

    from the photo or cartoon they had something similar to omega tracks/ it non transforming....

    I started with Omega G1 as a base. then arms and legs where added.

    thanks

    yeah i agree a face would given a little more personality.. maybe i should had done something .. but I did find a blue visor to give a different look from omega head.

    thanks Autobotx23!!!
