    They are aliens!
    I figured these crazy robo-bugs were either a man made experiment or some kind of mutants, but they are aliens!

    I found this huge dragonfly on my grill today when preparing for a family cook out. I ran back in, grabbed the camera, and started snapping pics, but this one wouldn't transform.
    I asked it to turn into a little robot and it just looked at me. I eventually decided it was a real bug and went to catch it, but it took a defensive stance and yelled "Terrorrize" at me!
    Next thing I know, he was a robot. Seemed pretty shocked to be one too.
    I asked it "where do you bugs keep coming from?", and it replied, "A planet called... Cybertron."

    Then it just flew away. Wow... It didn't even kill me.
    I think it was crapping in my grill though. There were therese litle pelllets in my hamburger.
    my sistur is eating my daddy.
    i have sum hunger for somethin nouw
    dont know... wha ate poo feeel funy

    uuugh... BRAINS!



    Last 3 pics are the real deal of course. Green darter dragonfly. One of the most common species.

    MODS:
    1. Removed flip out side missile launchers and sculpted realistic dragonfly shape into gap where they were.
    2 Sculpted side tail sections to cover missile recess grooves down length of tail on both sides.
    3. sculpted end section of tail and added the 2 small fins.
    4. Cut pelvis into 3 parts, removed portion of crotchy, reattached parts, then sculpted new pelvis over them. Now his hips aren't so wide which helps robot and buggy modes.
    5. Removed all 4 wings and the swivel joints from robot torso that held wings. Securely put wing swivel pods on buggo back and sculpted new rear wing pods.
    6.Sculpted new torso details to cover old wing pods and look better in bug mode.
    7.Sculpted over wtf bug eyes (robot forearm sides) to give him dragonfly eyes.
    8. Sculpted a helmet onto robot mode head that gives him a realistic dragonfly face in alt mode.
    9. Mounted new wings onto the new wing pods on his bug back. Wings have thick wires so they can be positioned many different ways.
    10. Painted all of that crap.

    Where did you get those wing pieces from?!

    This is a very cool custom. I always like your work on these bugs.

    Thanks fellaz. For the wings I used my daughters baking design set to melt the tiny plastic balls onto a transparent sheet of hand drawn wing patterns, then flipped them off the pan and poured 2 containers of green and blue sparkles over the bottom, then .... No. No I didn't. I bought them from the same guy that sells me the wings I get for custom fairies I make for my wife. She loves fairies and butterflies.

    This is impressive, what a masterpiece of coloring. Please, keep them coming! Are you planning to do Tripredacus?

    If it makes ya feel any better, I sold my Jetstorm last year and wondered why now that i am customizing these predacons. I ordered a new Japanese version MIB to do this and realized when I got him why I sold my old one.
    He's not as cool as I remember unmodded or painted.

    You know, Tripedicus would be a really fun one and the 3 figures would look cool, but I remember thinking it was a mess of a combiner even back then.

    cool I love beast wars and Jetstorm is so ugly I had to get the Japanese repaint of him: Tonbot. I really wish the original Jetstorm looked more like this it's just beautiful.

    Yep that is the one. I got him because Us Jetstorm is just too ugly. The orange looks like spray paint so I got Tonbot. But your version blows everyone out of the water. I wish I had it lol Beast wars is my thing. I got all the neo and II stuff too since It was my dream to have those back when I was like 10 years old and marveled at the pictures of them on Ben Yee's site.
