    There are places I'm pretty sure the Bay Movieverse will not go- Dinobots, Sharkticons, Quentisons, etc.
    But when Hasbro comes out with movieverse figures of character who weren't in the movies, they seem to get the colors more correct that they do in the films.
    Soooo, I made this movieverse Sharkticon, Gnaw; a more realistic version of the original.

    Gnaw's Bios:
    Sharkticons are terrifying creatures.
    First seen by a few captive Autobots on a distant alien planet called Quentessa, they were used to torture and kill any life forms the planet's inhabitants found.
    Sharkticons usually travel in packs and the packs are usually grouped. Normally, if you are unlucky enough to run into one, you also meet over 100 more.
    Gnaw is different though. He thinks just a tiny bit more that his savage kin, and holds a grudge against the Dinobot leader, Grimlock, for crushing many of his closest friends. It is for this reason that he joined Galvatron as a Decepticon.
    Galvatron does not trust Gnaw, but then, he trusts very few of his minions.
    Sharkticons transform to a more humanoid form for using tools and thinking more clearly, but they are not from Cybertron. They are called Sharkticons because of the sharp teeth and fins, yet they are actually more like robotic lobsters or insects. They must eat to survive. Anything living will do for sustaining the fleshy organics hidden within their resilient metal bodies.
    They can survive almost anything, slowly regenerating even lost limbs over time.
    The only way to kill a Sharkticon is to somehow destroy the soft organic life inside their torso.

    I put alternator arms, scout bot legs, an ROTF Arcee motorcycle front section, a BW dragon Megatron tail, 2 toothpicks, a FAB Blackout head modded onto a ball joint, and some sculpt and custom cut parts onto a Mutant Spawn figure to make this.
    Oh and then I painted him.

    Heh, thanks man. That makes me all giggly inside! Not in a nasty way.

    Not that I think this is one of my best but I don't want to part with it!
    I'll start the bidding at the least I'd possibly take this weekend and gladly keep it if it doesn't sell for that.
    Jeeze, customs have been selling for less lately and I'm about tired of it.

    LOL Your welcome. You know despite it being movieverse I think Gnaw could work okay with the classics, universe, or generations line. Well good luck selling him and if no takers than keep it.

    Man that is just EVIL looking! I love it! Not only did you make one bad ass sharkobot but you gave them a new level of creepiness and primal fierceness that the original goofy ones just never reached! Awesome.

    Thanks for all the nice comments guys!

    Yes Mutant Spawn was the base figure. The original post tells everything I used.

    The fleshy inner part was part of the base figure but I painted it to look bloody cus that sort of makes him seem more tortured inside, creepy, and vicious for a reason.
    Copy away buddy.

    3 shades of a yellow, green, and white tamiya mix there. Thanks!

    Someone went to the movies and saw Piranha 3D, didn't they?

    If we got this in real movie form, that's exactly what it would be like.

    That looks great - and like others have said, it would look pretty much spot on next to classics figures as well as movie ones!

    Haha hey I wasn't crazy about ROTF myself but I like a lot of things about the movieverse. Thanks for the nice comment!

    After hearing you and another person say that, I even more don't mind keeping him if he doesn't make at least $120. Opinions? too high? too low?
    Like many customizers, I expect about half of what I usually get lately.
    4 months ago this guy would have broke $180 easy.
