    Hey guys!

    Here is my line of movie autobot repaints. This is the culmination of almost 6 months of on-and-off work. I hope you like it!

    EDIT: I finally uploaded a set of photoshopped pics. Even the transformation GIF was updated. This was my first time to edit pics to look better. I'm glad you like it.

    Here is a GIF transformation sequence that I worked on. Please wait and allow it to load, it is around 2 MB :

    Thanks guys! Has anyone tried looking at the transformation GIF? I don't know why, but the program I used mucks up the resolution on the picture. Can anyone recommend a (free) program that can make better looking GIFs?

    Not sure which version you have but cs2 and 3 make the best gifs around. If you have < cs3 use image ready. in Cs3, click windows > animation (then you'll see your frame bar appear) from there...its easy.

    I have CS 2. I used it to make another transformation GIF, but my old one looks just slightly better. Thanks for the tip, though.

    thanks! i'm also really proud of the jazz because i really didn't like the mold at first. the color i used actually came about by accident. i was forced to look for other paint to use because the tamiya acrylics that i first applied didn't go on very well.

    thanks! i think that the lighting is a little uneven. wasn't able to use my light tent because it was too small for the group. good luck with your project too!

    Great work all around! I love the transformation pictures and you're GIF is pretty cool too. Did you paint the little black pin stripes on Bumblebee? They look good. I only ask because they're not on the individual BB pics as far as I can tell.

    thanks! yup i did paint the little stripes on BB. they were done with some masking tape and a really fine sharpie.

    i think all of them received some additional detail paintwork/touchups after the individual photos were taken and posted.

    Ratchet needs some stickers and BB's windows should be black. I can't believe with all the customs to date people always forget that detail, very obvious. You noticed Jazz's windows but forgot BB's...ha! :p 

    PS: Awesome work there, very very tempting to snatch them up! :D
