    Hello, just wanted to share some new custom TFLegends seekers i made recently.

    I've included here customs based on 4 Seeker customs that really got me into starting my own seeker customs - Slipstream, Stormcloud, Starfall and Flamestrike.

    Hope you like them! :thumb 

    #042 - Leader-1 - Autobot Lieutenant Commander
    - yup, i based this one on the Gobot warrior Leader-1. I even added the MR-25 text on the wings as homage. And its my first autobot Seeker.

    #043 - Redline's Slipstream
    - too bad i just couldn't match the details on the original custom. hehehe
    [att]4724[/att]

    #044 - Ares
    - the details kinda got botched by the final clear gloss paint i did on this one.

    #045 - Orodruin's Stormcloud
    - I really liked the way this one turned out.
    [att]4726[/att]

    #046 - Orodruin's Starfall
    - I should have used a lighter blue shade. sigh. I also plan to redo the details on this one when i get a lighter shade of metallic purple.

    and since I still have some space for photo attachments, here's some of my other older seekers that i haven't posted close-ups of yet:

    #025 - Crashburn
    [att]4729[/att]

    #029 - Fitor
    - based on the MR-03 Gobot. My 1st Gobot seeker.

    yep, LOC Starscream or LOC Sunstorm.

    nice job man. If you're wondering what I did to panel line my Slipstream, I used a Roaseart metallic paint marker, it has a super-fine tip, and adds that nice color kick to the whole thing. I have two suggestions that I think could help you, if you want them. First is your Ares' silver on his wings has red showing through and it wouldn't hurt to give those aps another coat. (I like him, really similar to my Thrust) The second one is I'd give them all a good semi-gloss or matte/flat clear coat. will make it easier to see the details of the mold and of the paint, and they'll also fit in with the factory seekers and other LOCs better. :)

    extremely high demand for them thanks to all the seeker nuts and customizers... and they've been out of production for well over a year now.

    I know, seeing all these fellas has made me want to have a crack as well - they need to release more LoC Seeker redecoes, just so the figs are out there to customise. Yes, you heard me right... MORE REDECOES! :D

    hello, thanks for the comments. they're always appreciated. :) 

    With Ares, I also noticed the wearing out of the silver coat, so i did go and give it another coating (3rd) after the shoot. Somehow, my MR-Hobby Topcoat (Gloss) keeps botching up the silver coating.

    Maybe I should go back to the semi-gloss coating i've been using before, as per your suggestion. I bought the gloss one coz the store ran out of semi-gloss. I never tried flat coat yet though. Maybe I will.

    I always thought semi-gloss worked better with my other mainline customs - G.I.Joes too.

    I use Tamiya paints, and Gundam markers (and then some) btw. ;)

    Thanks! I've always had a soft spot for the Gobots too.

    Considering I already sold all my vintage TFs, but still kept all my Bandai MR-Gobots around (with box, styro, manuals and all).

    I have a 3rd Gobot conversion coming up - Hornet.
