    hey guys this is my little WIP thread for my second bigger and hopefully better TF custom. I love the big ones :) 

    I always thought Op Op's size could be put to excellent kitbshing use, and his shoulders screamed "I can fit 3 different things on me" after some design brainstorming I gave him larger feet that would double as the front of a tank, the front of a car, the front of a jet, and (exhales).. tiger feet.

    there's a new picture of a first look at his tank mode. please let me know what you think!

    Never would have thought of that for a base mold, but it works so well! Looking forward to the progress of this one. :)

    hey thanks guys, I haven't had much money for customizing lately, I want to get my hands on styrene sheets and plastic dowel but regular stores don't have much. I also have to get his eyes working again as the original batteries died and I need to learn how to build LED circuits. Ive moved recently and been a little busier but I'm still thinking of sixshot and I have all the planning done I just have to go through with all the little things I want to add.

    alright fellas Ive made little noticeable progress (recently finished complex foot parts design) but here's an early look at his "great winged white lion" mode.

    this mode was the main inspiration for this sixshot, as I thought optimal optimus' gorilla chest looked more like tigerhawks CG model than the the actual toy, so i got to thinking the TH's tiger head was not far off scale, and a great sculpt.

    I really need a point in the right direction for LED`s, I can solder a circuit together but i have no idea what batteries and lights to use. do want LED`s for kitty head aswell, very doable.

    Hey guys ive got a tiny bit more done with sixshot heres a quick pic of his G1 influenced chest and a good look at him on his feet. I have plenty left to do on his shoulders and other modes, his bot mode is all formed up but I want to change the Op Op look and feel to anything influenced by sixshot.

    lights of fury

    alright guys I got some real friggn' kool updates and these are some great strides in customizing for myself. I am dead set on the necessity of LED's and I was real stumped about hands but I just did what do best and I improvised. he has new thighs and cod piece since I wanted thigh swivle and more blocky G1 looking parts. I chose tank tread from a energon Landmine because I thought they would stand out better than the previous. he has a RID super mode head and some nice wings mocked up. and oh boy I love those LEDs that I intent to make some very badass guns with. let me know what you think
