Update: 8/25/11 Sorry about the long gap between updates... My time was eaten up by first being in a different state for interning, then school work, then botcon, then finishing the basement (bathtubs are HEAVY) and this is the first chance I've had to take some pics of what I've gotten done. So, my Breakdown had a close encounter of the worst kind with pets while I was finishing the basement and his legs and hood were damaged. The hood (and his bonnet-balljoint) were thankfully salvageable with FixIt sculpt and a LOT of sanding. I ended up finding someone who had a cheap, chestless, Red Alert and used him to repair the rest of the body. Then I repainted Breakdown (and forgot the change his license plate I just realized). Despite the hood having some striations that I could not fully sand away... I think I did a better job on his paint this time, it looks much smoother and the lines are better defined. I also added some silver highlights to his guns to break up the blue and black. Also: DEADEND!!! As the poll suggested I used a modified Jazz for Deadend. While I know that his bio states that Deadend is even more obsessed about his appearance than Knockout or Sunstreaker... I had Deadend all shiny and sleek and it... just didn't look right, it didn't catch his primary personality trait which was all DoomGloomAndSwoon (quoting a friend... and long story). So I went back and added a few chips and dry brushed some wear onto him and then it looked just right. I've decided to just have one picture of each of the (robot mode) stuntis and a face close up here on the first post... I'll add posts at the end with all their pictures. =========================================== Update: 12/1/10 Added the balljointed windshield for Breakdown and took pictures of the new battle-mode. The Alt-mode remains visually identical to the earlier pics so I didn't take any new pictures of that. Also pictured are Breakdown's guns which are simply 2 deluxe class Ratchet's rifles with the grips carefully cut down to allow them to fit snugly into the fists of Breakdown. I plan to modify them with the little 'clips-and-poles' that so many of the new toys (like Breacher and the new Voy Ironhide) have. the clips will be on the guns, the pole will be added to the back of the spoiler so that the guns can clip onto BD's spoiler to look like the g1 toys 'attack' mode. I just need to get a toy or two with said clip-and-pole items^^ =========================================== Only Breakdown right now and he's not 100% complete, but I am REALLY proud of how he came out!! ^^ Having Breakdown be white seems to be the most common version of him out there, but I find myself actually liking the cream color of the cartoon the best, so I mixed myself up a batch of a nice cream color and painted him so that his car-mode parts would be cream. He then had a lot of part swapping with Sideswipe, although I left some red joints to draw the red color down the toy visually. With the blue detailing in car mode, I originally had it along the bottom edge and wheel wells, but I decided to add more blue to the sides so he'd have more blue on his legs in robot mode. For reasons known only to my hind brain, I decided that all the Stunties would have a pearl coat instead of clear-coat. It actually looks REALLY cool in person, though I'm not sure how it photographed. While I was chatting with Pun-3X while working on this toy, I had the really cool idea to use a ball joint or a swivel joint to keep his windshield attached instead of parts forming and have it end up on his robot-mode back. I experimented with my Sunstreaker (without chopping the toy up) while I was waiting for BD's paint to dry and it SHOULD work... unfortunately the drill bit for my dremel snapped so I need to go out and buy a new one before finishing up that last step Wish me luck that it works!! ============================= I plan to post all the Stunticons to this thread as I make them, as well as putting Menasor up here when I get him to work. Wildrider-classics Rodimus Dragstrip-classics Dragstrip with parts from the BM mirage GT recolor Motormaster-was originally going to be a Nemesis classics optimus but I found the mold too short, so I did a search for 'Motormaster' here on TFW2005 and found this really cool idea to use an Inferno for it! Not sure who came up with it first though Dead End-not sure what to use here, the Prowl alt-mode is perfect but I can't figure out how to TF him so that he has a flat chest instead of the hood-chest. I'm thinking maybe see if I can modify a Jazz when I finally get one, or maybe use a classics/henkei Hot Shot.
