    I happened to log into DeviantArt and they have a contest: the Skin a Scion Contest. And the thought that immediately occurred to me was that a great way to make an impression on the judges and have a shot at this (not to mention it would be cool on its own merits) would be to do an Alternators custom (repaint/reshell/kitbash) and submit pictures of it as the contest entry.

    Sadly, while I have some good ideas for this, I don't have the talent or the resources - and, knowing myself as I do, I probably wouldn't get anything done anyway.

    So I decided to bring this up here - I'm hoping to inspire one or more of the more talented people to maybe collaborate with me on this - we could come up with ideas and I could help pay for supplies... and then you might consider compensating me if you would happen to win.

    Anybody think this is a good idea? Thoughts?

    Those are awesome - I love how heavily-armed Kab is. :thumb :

    What I'd like to see/collaborate on would be a reshell using a Scion tC. I've found that models for it are fairly plentiful, and I imagine that any one of the compact Alternators (Prowl, Smokescreen, maybe others?) would fit well.

    Back on topic just a bit, I did dl those Scion files for digibash sketching purposes for future customs :) 

    I'd like to actually attempt to enter the contest, but I've got a lot other things that take priority (and that's after I finish finals this week and next!)

    If anyone here enters, keep us posted!

    You're the one on cocaine, not me . . .

    . . . and I'll have your money next week . . . :lol 

    Baaaaaack on topic some, have any of you guys seen some really cool decos of real Scions that you would like to see emulated on the Alt Scion? For the alt mode of the Scion, what do you think would be a cool color/design scheme (aside from what's already been posted)?

    IF I could get pictures of them, there are a few "company" Scion xB's with some interesting paint schemes and vinyl decals along the body around town. One of them is even LIME GREEN!

    Chick-fil-As tend to use Scions with a Holstein cattle print. I bring this up mainly because I hope at least one person has to Google Chick-fil-A just to know what it is.

    As for custom Scions, my Beastbox could still stand to have some sweet G1 silver and gold stripes and a coat of purple.
