    Finally moved into our new house and got an unfinished basement!

    I'm still unpacking tubs and the shelf isn't finished yet, but I've got all my G1, season one Transformers unpacked and displayed. More pictures to come in the next few days.

    Yes, the Wheeljack head was swapped from the Action Master Wheeljack and took about 15 minutes. Most of my Transformers are customized in some way, from something simple like painting the eyes, creating cartoon acurate stickers, to a full on kitbash.

    This thread will be a work in progress as I finish displaying everything. I just had no patience left anymore keeping them in a bin.

    Aha, pure genious! Using an action master head.
    I also really like the silver detailing you did to Prime's chest. Did you use a sharpie or something for that?

    No, it's not a Diaclone Swoop, just a custom painted one.

    More examples of my "tweaking", Omega Supreme's got a face. And Classics Jetfire is filling in for G1 Jetfire

    More customization: Galvatron and his light-up cannon

    Thanks, I've got some clear plastic I'm going to use to encase the shelf, that should take care of some of the dust.

    The Arcee is from Rabid Squirell Productions. I wrote up a how-to on the assembly over at their website. Took a chance and I was very happy with it. Same with the Quintesson.
