    I'm making Classics versions of the Omnibot trio for fellow board member destrongerlupus. As the thread title has clearly mentioned, this is my very first commission, but one that I consider to be very doable and well within my skill set.

    Enjoy the WIP pics and thanks for looking!

    C&C as usual.

    Update for 3/14/11: Overdrive is sealed and with an equally shiny reprolabel to boot. Downshift has also been sealed (still needs an Autobot decal). Camshaft's paint is still a WIP, but it's almost done.

    Ooh. I can't wait to see these! I love the Omnibots and they don't seem to get much attention. Keep us posted!

    Thanks for the WIP thread, I get as giddy as a school girl seeing these things progress, and am happy to have the work take place in public.

    Likewise, I'm very pleased to be sponsoring up-and-coming artists :) 

    Camshaft's looking good so far, like the thigh-swap especially, great idea! Very curious to see what you'll do for "Attack Mode" but I'm guessing his swivel'y exhaust-pipe-ports are gonna come into play, which would be a great match for a portion of the original toy's gimmick!

    Subscribing to this thread, and will enjoy it every step of the way!

    Glad you're enjoying it. He doesn't need a whole lot: just the thigh replacement, new hands, and boxing up the forearms a bit. Oh, and a port for a missile launcher on his back. Setting up his gimmicks shouldn't be too difficult either.

    Trying to determine what shade of silver he is, though.

    I just hope you don't mind me finishing up Waterwalk in the coming days.

    Added concept pics of Downshift. He will be made from the Sunstreaker mold. Head will feature a faceplate as well as missile launchers on each shoulder port.

    Liking the shoulder pods, he really does look like downshift a bit already!

    Thanks, I'll be refining that faceplate. I just wanted to get an idea of what it would look like. Also, those missiles will most likely be shortened with bits added toward the front to make them look more like actual missiles.

    Thanks, now that Waterwalk is complete (I sealed him lastnight), I'll be working on these guys exclusively.

    Wheel swap looks good, but I'm more excited about seeing his new paintjob, which looks VERY nice, white can be pain, but this looks great so far!
