    Update 1
    Guess who is almost done? Well it was hard and this was my first time painting a transformer, but it is almost done. Just some touch ups and he is practically done. Right now I'm just taking a cheese and bread break, to let it dry a little. I will post some pics after I eat and it drys a little. Just wanted to update you guys.

    Well, this is a character that I came up with a couple of years ago. He isn't really a transformer, but I thought that he would look good as one. He is completely transformable. The first picture is of a poster that I did of him form an art class, and the second is a picture of a sculpture of him that I did for a different art class. This was fun to do. I have been wanting to do this guy, but I wanted to have some customs under my belt first. When I saw this guy's toy, it screamed Mr. D to me. It was perfect for him. No add on pieces. I was able to make the claw so it fits in robot mode. The fingers can go on the inside or the outside of the hand attachment. He will be the main protagonist in my transformer series. I am going to try and link all of my customs and he will be that link. The ultimate evil. The reason why the monocle comes off will be explained in a future custom. I will write a bio when I finish him. All I have to do is decide if I should give him an other weapon. It would show in vehicle mode though.

    Thats neat. Looks like Momaw Nadon (Hammerhead) from Star Wars with a monacle. I like seeing original characters.

    The head fits in fine. It wouldn't if the monocle didn't come off, then it wouldn't, but it does so it fits fine. The hand took some good old trial and error, but it worked out in the end. Magnets were the key. The sharp looking parts are from 2 killer moths from the animated batman show.

    That was not what I was going for, but I love hearing people's reaction to stuff that I make. Like when I paint, people ask "What does it mean?" and I reply "What do you think it means?" then they explain and I jokingly say "Well you are wrong." Then I tell them that I was just messing with them, and their really is no mean, I was just painting for fun.

    I also like seeing original character. It is fun to see what people come up with. I also like to see old characters redesigned in different ways. I just like to see something original. not the same thing over and over. I will probably do something that has originally do before if I like it. like I have a Devastator in the plans, I just have to do something to it that none have done before.

    Wow! Someone actually remembers that. Should I continue his back story?

    All he needs to be finished is black, white, red, silver, and blue paint. And some sanding. I will keep you updated.

    Yes he does rock and I love to hear the love for this guy. That last sentence sounds weird. oh well. That is funny that you mention Mr. Peanut. I looked him up because I couldn't spell monocle.

    I love that people remember that post. I don't know what happen to that post, it just disappeared. Weird. I had quite the story going. People love that hand it seems

    Are you talking about the sculpture or the transformer? The sculpture is made from clay, with some fixit to fill in the cracks and a wire skeleton. The transformer's head is made out of fix it.

    The points came form an Animated Batman Killer Moth. And to be honest the rest of it came from random parts. Magnets hold the two front claws on and the joint for the other came for a Sonar part. the Joints in the fingers are stikfa figures.
