    VideoYouTube - Transformer Customs: Substitute Shingami Autobot: Kurosaki Ichigo

    Yes, I know..I'm nuts. I know this. This is a totally random, fan boy-inspired, slightly nutty project. That being said....

    Kurosaki Ichigo, Transformer Style! For those of you who haven't seen Ichigo before, he is the hero (and chief bad-ass) of my favorite anime series, Bleach. It involves spirits and soul reapers and a whole lot of crazy. It's difficult to explain, so have a look see on YouTube if you'd like to learn more.

    The head came from a PVC figure of Ichigo (the Ichigo/Rukia 2-pack). I added some of the parts from the original Drift head, as well as parts from a Armored Core Kit. His eyes had light piping put in place, so that the red LED I installed could shine through. The LED switch is located plainly in the center of his chest.The head tilts up and down and turns left to right.

    Ichigo's zanpakutou, Zangetsu, was scratch built out of a solid piece of styrene, with a buttload of sanding involved. The sweetest mode (IMO) is , the waist! The Drift figure is already super poseable. The waist adds even more to that. Full 360 degrees of rotation, and because it's ball jointed you also get a bit of lift forward/backward and left/right.

    Be on the look out for a few extra items......maybe something...Hollow. :D

    The decals I whipped up in Adobe Illustrator. The kanji on the doors reads "Fight, Ichigo!" (From the convo he and Kenpachi had during the first battle with his inner hollow). I think this may have been the most fun I've had with a bash in a while. As I'm now diving into commission land (There's a guy waiting on a Brawn who is gonna KILL me if I don't get it done! :lol ), I'm glad I got this out of my system. Enjoy! More pics HERE.

    I still think Kon would be cool next to that. Maybe use a Dunny? that would be a killer accessory imo.

    Seeing this reminds me of my dream project of getting an Advent Children Fenrir bike to transform into a sort of 6-armed Gilga-mech. These sort of twisted ideas always sort of pull at me~

    One question though, what happens in bot mode to the windshield n canopy?

    Thanks bro! MAD sanding involved! :lol 

    Me and Shinobitron will probably doing a Kenpachi. He's definitely my second favorite character. All that power, and NO clue what his swords name is!!!

    Thanks, homies! This one was a bit of a gamble, on the business side of things. But SOOOO much fun to do. I'm glad that it's gotten a favorable response.

    :lol  Your like the third guy to recommend that!

    I think so. I have some other Anime inspired TF's in mind, but Capt Hitsugaya, Capt Kenpachi, Cap Kuchiki, Aisen, Rukia, Renji, and a few of my fave Espada (Grimmjaw, Ulquiora, Stark and Barrigan) are most def a possible. Didn't know you were a Bleach fan, Sabs! How cool!!

    It attaches in the back under the Drift's sword holder. I didn't demonstrate that in the pics. My apologies, bro.

    :lol ...NOW ON EBAY!!!! :wink: 

    If not, let me know. Your one guy who deserves a hook up from me, right? :lol 

    Thanks, E!

    Sniff, Sniff...Origato, Eric-senpai!!!!!!

    :lol , You know it!!!!

    Very nice! I really like what you did with the lighting. My only criticism is the lack of orange hair.
