    Before I go any further, I'd like to give a huge thanks to Frenzy_Rumble for helping out with this figure. Now, on to the good stuff...

    Here is a link to the first of the set, Spike: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/296893-masterpiece-fortress-maximus-spike-1-3-a.html

    Without further adieu, I give you FORTRESS (as seen in the Japanese Headmaster version). Also presented (thanks to an alternate G1 head from bradforj) is CEREBROS, as seen in season 3 of the original G1 'toon. The figure now has arm and wrist articulation, leg articulation and a more 'toon accurate paintjob.

    I used a combination of gunship gray and silver argent on the figure, then did some panel-lining and used only a few stickers/labels to add a bit more detail to the overall look. I also created a "Sword Station" to hold the Master Sword, as seen in the Japanese Headmaster toon. In addition to that, there is an alternate G1 Cerebros head (courtesy of bradforj).

    As always, constructive comments & critiques are welcome.

    This only means one thing...the big guy is next. Enjoy!

    那是出色的。我們知道它在我們不可以理解彼此時,可以很難談話

    You gotta hate that culture block, no? Apparently the translation can mean there IS room for improvement as well as there is NOT room for improvement. This is a great custom that I'm sure will remain King of the Hill for quite some time. How long that is all depends on whether or not Anemis finishes Metroplex. Heh.

    首先本人要声明一点,虽然本人在前面提到过“太多地方需要改善”,但作者的作品仍然是有许多优点的,例如四肢的改造等等,但与此同时也存在以下缺点:1.作者忽略了头部与躯体的比例严重失调,从而令作品看起来像一个患了大头症的科学怪人;2.另外背部因过于守旧,所以从侧面看破以像巴黎圣母院的敲钟人;3.宝剑及其配件的设计过于粗糙,相关颜色的调制和上色也无法让人满意。最后我要补充一句,虽然我作出了上述发言,但我至今仍未完成过一件让自己满意的作品,另外我知道您拿来制作的正版伏特价格很高,所以我为此也不想再作什么批评与批评性的发言。最后我还要说一句,壹年半后我一定能够用英语回帖的,然后再跟作者您好好谈谈,甚至交个外国朋友,所以请等待。

    Okay, if this is wrong then blame Google Translator.

    "First of all I have to state that, although I mentioned earlier, "too much room for improvement," but the author's works still has many advantages, such as the transformation of limbs, etc., but at the same time there are the following disadvantages: 1. On the head and the body ignores serious imbalance, so that works looks like a disease, suffering the bulk of Frankenstein; 2. Also back is too conservative because, like so from the side see through to the bell ringer of Notre Dame; 3 . swords and accessories design is too rough, the relevant color and color modulation can not be satisfactory. Finally, I must add, though I made the above statement, but I have yet to be completed over one to their own satisfaction, and the other I know you brought a high price made of genuine volts, so I do not want to be What criticism and critical remarks. Finally, I would also like to say, One year and a half I will be able to use English a reply to, then talk to your good turn on, or even pay a foreign friend, so please wait."

    As to the points:

    1) - The original figure looked even worse as far as proportions go, if anything the new arms give it a more aesthetically pleasing view. Proportion-wise, the body itself is great, IMHO. If you put a voyager head on there, it would fit in nicely, but voyager heads aren't Headmaster heads. The head looked big on there to begin with, before I did any mods.

    2) - The back is that way, because it also transforms into another (larger) head.

    3) - If the sword design is too rough, then that's due to Takara/Hasbro. That is the (smaller) master sword that was originally included (rather, a repro of it) and I painted it with a red blade and black hilt/base. If you check the Japanese Headmaster 'toon, it's a red blade and a black hilt/base. The sword station could probably be a bit more refined, but (1) it's something I kinda threw together at the last minute and (2) I think it's pretty cool, anyway.

    Thank you for you comments, nonetheless. They are appreciated.
