    Something like this would take a while to make and around 300-2000 big ones at least depending on quality

    You as the buyer need to specify what you want. How big? What material? Colors? Finish? As all these things will most definitely affect your cost. Even a picture or rough sketch of what your looking for would be very helpful and will probably get more attention as far as people willing to do it.

    Could you not just buy that Stegosaurus universe repaint if thats the kind of thing you want, because it looks similar to that.

    Some people are not good at repaints and so feel more comfortable asking some else to do it. The person who did the MP slag I thinks was Mench0y and you can get his e-mail address from over at tfmaster.

    I don't know anyone that works in diecast metal.

    Like Tony said, a professional looking scratchbuilt figure is going to cost you a lot. If you have to ask how much, its probably not within your price range.

    Kinda like going to a restaurant where the menu has no prices, if you have to ask, you shouldn't eat there.

    I don't say that to be discouraging, I think someone could modify the figure you have shown to make it look really cool and it wouldn't cost you nearly as much.

    YUP YUP Just get someone to repaint him, should only be around a hundred dollars. I think he is an ok mold and with some Jurassic Park style paint job to get rid of all that bright yellow, he would look pretty cool.

    Who Cares. As long as I know what someone means I don't care and neither should you. :)

    hey i could have the figure repainted but the whole point was to get one similar with a cooler looking robot mode. Like the legs on this robot are just cheesy....and the waist. I would rather have the bottom torso retooled....and maybe change the transformation a little bit. Yea sorry about the spelling of *there*, It was late at night.

    I don't think you realize how costly and how much work goes into a scratch-built custom.

    It isn't really something you just pop onto a message board and ask for lightly. To get something like what you want made probably wouldn't start at LESS than $300 - $400, for all the labor and materials, not to mention hours and hours of planning.

    Do you have $400 (probably much more) to spend on a whim?

    I actually do have the money Im just leary on how it could be made since I think you would have to make a mold. But how many people have plastic to pour into a mold or have the oven to heat it or what not?? I dont know the processs that goes into making something like a transformer able to transform and be sturdy enough.

    What you might need to do is to find an old beat up G1 Snarl figure and take it apart and either you or someone else mold the pieces and cast it using hydrospan so you can "grow" the pieces to the same size as that slag figure. You would then have to mold the new size pieces and cast them in plastic resin and reaseemble. At this new scale, you could then retool additional articulation or change up some detials with fixit-sculpt. This process could set you back at least $200.00 in materials (not includeing finding the donor figure or labor). But at least you would be creating a near MP level design and scale that you are looking for.

    Just a thought.
