    Ok so Here is my Wip pics on what I have sculpted so far more pics will come later today as I'm gonna be working on him again. (Only get to work when I have some free time) He is currently the only one I'm working on as the post office is being really slow and I accidently broke my wip chromedomes ball joint and now I gotta look for a new one. also this link is like the index to all my wip pretenders and more links will appear as I start working on them :D  .
    (Index)http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/561748-another-wip-decepticon-pretenders.html

    Again credit goes to "aprim" for his awsome work, but I thought I would change mine up a bit. These are the two pics I am working off of for now.
    [​IMG] (cartoon-right)
    [​IMG] (g1 figure)

    I decided that as I was working on him his name is "skullgrin" so I wanted to add as much bone to him as I could without making him un-reckonizable as the g1 character. I started by giving him the skull on his belt ,still have to work on that some more, then I gave him bone shoulders and bone spikes coming out of his knuckles.
    [​IMG]
    His shin guard was a black plate of armor now I replace it with a giant skull with a horn now it doesnt come out too well out of my camera unfortunatle but I detailed the @%!#@% out of the bone it acutally looks like bone. I might sculpt some teeth on it still debating on it. You guys think I should paint it that greyish black color or leave it a bone color and paint the rest of the shin that greyish black color?
    [​IMG]
    Finally gave him a spine that is really detailed, have to sand it so it blends well, thinking about giving him a ribcage coming out of his chest and just gonna sculpt some more and work on the bot more pics will come today hopefully. God I hate my camera need to get new one so I can show off my work fully because not all of the detail comes out. :( 
    But yea Let me know what you guys think.
    Update: should I sculpt the head or just order a junker and use that? I think I might sculpt because it might be to small

    Are you planning on making the robot as well, or just the shell? Also, how do you plan on the two of them interacting (making it a true shell, or attaching)?

    Very nice! Those boney details look great! Are the shoulder pads skulls too? You should make them like dinosaur or "monster" type skulls - that way you can add even more spikes to them. It would also make it look more like he has been here on earth for millions of years, which I believe is his backstory in Victory...
