    Hello! I like fembots. I set about to collect them all! Except I didn't want more than one version of any given character. Or any given mold. Or any expensive rarities. Or a million little motorcycles.

    So I figured I customize some to fill in the gaps created by my own arbitrary rules and general cheapness.

    This is my third ever custom TF, Moonracer! Or Mintracer. Or Lil Minty. Which is the same name as my Ipod.

    Here she is was Chromia and Flare-Up/Firestar, ready to raid Shockwave's energon stash. Although I don't know how many cubes they'll be able to carry back with these new alt-modes. Now if they only had an Elita-1 to report back to who wasn't a repaint!

    She was originally an Energon Arcee. I removed the Magical Pregnancy Tube from her stomach and replaced it with a flat piece of styrene and the top of a pen cap. Since the original color scheme is a little dull, I added a second shade of green and some silver highlights to spruce things up.

    I didn't make her a new weapon, so she has to use the ridiculous one that came with the mold. I don't think she'll be quite the best sharpshooter in the galaxy with this monstrosity.

    And here she is with all the other cycle-bots I own.

    Thanks all!

    Bruticus- Wouldn't recommend it! The paint may LOOK minty, but it's actually pistachio flavored! Blech!

    Alpha- What do you mean by fembot archive?

    How about extending those exhaust pipes on her forearms? She can then use them as her primary weapons instead of a giant bow.

    I like what you did with the chest hole thing - the pen lid you used has filled that in a treat :D

    I see where you're going with this. Fleet of motorcycles anyone? Such sweet awesomeness. Awesome paint job too.

    dor- No fleet. This is my last motorcycle custom for the foreseeable future. Just pure coincidence I did 3 of them in a row. Next project is uh... not a motorcycle :) 

    griff- Both greens are mixed liquitex glossies. The lighter shade was actually quite tricky. It's almost entirely white with just a drop of blue and yellow.


    Thanks again for the all support folks!
