    Hi guys,

    Been a while since I've posted any pics of my customs, but I should be uploading a few in the next few days. Please excuse my terrible photography skills.

    Here we have my take on Pyro. The head is from Calloway's Shapeways store (Pyro head assembly by CALLOWAY75 on Shapeways) and is an incredible depicition of Pyro's noodle.

    The body is a KO oversized rollbar. They idea of using it for a pyro custom struck me when i was messing around with it and did the 'heroic hands on hips' pose, and thought it looks a little like a prime pose.

    I added a arm cannon, which is from a junker first aid, added a few magnets under the arm and in the cannon and it holds in place quite well. To fill the hole in his chest I took the autobot symbol thingy from the claw arm of an Armada Hoist and added some filler so it stays in place.

    I used warhammer cidadel colours for all the painting, and I think he makes a good addition to my wreckers collection!

    Thanks for looking.

    Considering how much the originalmold looked like Optimus and Pyro's Primus Apotheosis, I think this is a great mold choice! Just a bit small for my taste though. But it's an oversized KO... BRILLIANT!

    Cool idea! I have that same oversized KO! I've been trying to think of a use for him. Did yours come in the same blue&grey deco as the original? Your paint application really gives him a striking, heroic look! Does he include special "violent dismemberment action" like in the comics? :D 

    And that's a damn fine Wreckers assembly you have there. They look great together!

    This is really cool!:thumb  The Rollbar mold works well for Pyro; the only problem was it's size, but an oversized KO fixed that.

    Thanks guys, pretty happy at how this one turned out!

    Cheers dude, has been a while but I hope to get a few more post up in the next week or two! Yeah has some talented young customiser make those for me, they are quite awesome ;) . Thanks again for them dude.

    Yeah, Calloway did some excellent work there, I've bought a bunch of his head casts. Particularly like this one and the Banzaitron head he made for the ROTF figure.

    Thanks guys!

    Very nice. I wouldn't have thought of using that mold for a Pyro Earth mode.
