    I just got these guys painted up today cuz I'm super excited to get some of Sculpt-bot's custom heads. I'm pretty sure you can guess who they all are. I will be doing full gallery shots including alt modes when I get the heads and paint them. I'm not sure I'm done with Brawn yet but I'm stoked on the other 2

    I really like how the extra little bits of black and purple set this guy apart from Grimlock

    Wow... that Megatron custom is so simple and easy, but works SOOOO well!

    Arcee looks great. Bigger chest than usual for her... I guess she was getting sick of being upstaged by the chests on the male Autobots. ;) 

    I love that Brawn mod... I was just messing with my Hound the other night figuring that out. I'm tempted, but I only have one Hound, and without some major additions, they'll end up almost identical in Jeep mode.

    Nice work. can't wait so see them with their heads! :)

    Interesting ideas there. Arcee looks like there's some definite potential there, and Megatron's looking cool, too.

    Brawn is pretty inspired, although I think it'd be worth going a bit further to make him look like he's not just folded in half. If you're not utilising the waist clips any more, perhaps you could file them down and build up a new torso. And if you trimmed the top of the hip piece, you'd be able to improve his articulation; as he is, he doesn't look like he can raise his legs at all. I'd have thought that would be reasonably easy to fix.
    But a brilliant start on him; well done for spotting this potential new transformation!

    Thanks for the comments guys! I'm really digging the Megs the more I look at him and my girl already claimed Arcee as her own since I finished her the day before our 1 year anniversary yeesh!

    I will definitely look into your idea of adding articulation cuz I really do like my alts to have as much as possible. I'm actually working on adding a waist joint to a junker Skids right now

    Heh... quite right too. I'm not the biggest Alt fan nowadays, but one of their biggest selling points for me when I was, was their articulation.
    It shouldn't be a big deal to get Brawn's hips moving again. Basically it's just the waist piece (which normally would, of course, be above the hips) which is now in front of the legs, so it'll get in the way of them moving too far. But if you trim that out of the way, he should be pretty free.
