    I am in the process of making all of the cassettes and decided to work on Buzzsaw now. I am also working on Laserbeak and Squawktalk right now too, but for now i'll show you Buzzsaw.

    Tell me what you think :)

    Nicely done! The MP3 player looks good in yellow. My only issue is the metallic grey on the earpiece... it looks like weathered metal, which doesn't really match the MP3 player aesthetic. I've been wondering what this mold would look like with a metallic treatment on the "feathers" (translucent orange wing bits).

    Buzzsaw was always my favourite. :)

    It's just a little blurry in the picture but the earpiece is solid silver and I didn't go for a weathered finish, it's just the pics.

    Also I did experiment at first about the "feather" parts as you say but I realized that they look good for both Buzzsaw and Laserbeak. I'll have to change them for Squawktalk though, no worries.

    Thanks for your comment!

    I think the only thing that I MIGHT've done differently would be to have used that same gold on the earpiece, where you colored over the red.. just for the sake of not only having the two matchup better, but increase the emphasis on the gold since BS had a lot of gold in him.

    Funny, the Buzzsaw looks better than the Lazerbeak. Good job.

    The other one in the picture is just the regular Booster Real Gear and I haven't painted him into Laserbeak yet, I just put him in the pic for comparison.

    About the earpiece I understand what you mean about adding more yellow to it but because I wanted to make sure he still had his gun I decided to make it silver instead.


    I'm going to have some clearer pics up in a little bit!

    Can I ask why my title was changed? I had it as

    Maximus_Prime Customs: Real gear BUZZSAW

    (not bolded of course)


    My Beastbox has the same title so I want to know why it was changed, there was nothing wrong with it.

    because its not really cool to be doing that when your name is already RIGHT BELOW THE TITLE. *L* It comes off as arrogant, regardless if you meant for it to or not. I must've missed your other title.

    As far as the gold on the earpiece, I didn't mean the whole thing, just the part that used to be the red ring that you turned silver. it'll still be a silver barrel.
