This custom is based on the Transformers Evolutions comic book "Hearts of Steel", issue 4, where the Autobots and Decepticon factions are awoken in the 19th century and take on vehicle modes befitting that time period. One such Decepticon, Scourge, took on the vehicle mode of a zeppelin to thrash his autobot enemies in an airborne assault. Scourge is fully transformable and comes with the zeppelin balloon, which can be hung from a ceiling for the full "death from above" effect. This was the winner of the Procustomizers.com steampunk contest. Many thanks to the guys over there for organising the contest and the kind words Modifications - extensive internal modifications, allowing shoulders to extend out and rotate on a ball joint - head can extend up/forwards to clear the collar and again, ball jointed for posability - replaced brick-former thighs with ball joints for more dynamic positioning - split at waist, connected by double ball joint for twisting to the sides and up/down - bicep and wrist swivel joints added - grinded down the chest for a more rounded appearance - grinding away excess plastic around the waist to give less of a 'chunky monkey' look - engines cut off and replaced with towers and steampunk engines made out of styrene - styrene built up for armour cladding - styrene 3D insignia - apoxy sculpt ornate decoration along the bow - custom gatling gun (more styrene...) to fit the head or hand - lots and lots of rivet holes hand drilled Balloon - Made from foam, using lots of filler, gesso primer and sanding - styrene fins - paintbrush cut down and used for the ramming spike - string attaches to the ramming spike and a rear spike so it can be hung from the ceiling - Five magnets on scourge attach to screws in the base of the balloon (I love attaching him, he just clicks nicely into place and it's strong enough to hold him, but not difficult to remove) I will update the thread later in the week with bonus items from the auction, as and when they are ready.
