    So I started making this dude yesterday and made some good progress so far.

    He's Tarn, the boss of D.J.D (Decepticon Justice Division), and if you are reading IDW MTMTE comics you know that he's such a sadistic mofo and a very very charismatic character, so charismatic he is that while reading the comics I instantly felt an urge to bring him up to my project lists.

    Tarn transforms into a Cybertronian tank and this custom has as base 2007 movie Bumblebee, many random bits, ROTF Mindset arms and many other parts I want to implement for this project.

    As I intend to make the whole D.J.D crew, I measured them up by their apearance in the comics and realized that Tarn is a big deluxe figure and will match nicely with the other members scale when they are done. I hope I can make them all as I'm planning.

    Well, there are tons of details to add up yet...

    Comments, critiques and suggestions are appreciated as usual.

    Worked on his legs, chins, arms and cannon attachments. Next step is to make his abbs pannels, chest spoilers "spikes" and the head. Wish me luck.

    So, after a few days not being able to work on this guy due to real life business, I finally managed to work on the following parts:

    -Feets are done with his protuberant "toes" sticking out.
    -Shins are more detailed
    -chest wing rake things
    -Abdominal details

    Basically I still have to detail the double cannon a little more and then he'll be already up for base coating and paintjob.

    I'm still uncertain of the paints I will use, I mean the shade of purple and grey...

    Excellent jump point there!
    Question- will you be sculpting the head, or going with a swap from a Soundwave or another figure?

    He looks good so far but I'd use a PRID Soundwave head if I could.

    Thanks a lot brothers, I will not disappoint you.

    These shoulders are the only logical choice for this character, I'm glad you are using them as well.
    I love your works and I hope you finish yours soon. No doubt it will be a badass work! Keep me posted with ur progress bro.

    Thanks bros, I'm having tons of fun making this project.

    I'll be sculpting his mask bro. By now I'm working on his abdominal pannels e cannon details. Soon he will be up for the paintjob.

    Thanks man. This transformation scheme I think is right judging by the images we've seen in MTMTE #8. Although there ain't no other reference images of his altmode I assume it can't be much different than this.

    Well this is what I think after checking his apparitions amidst his gang and next to Black Shadow. As for the other guys, I believe Tesarus is ultra class and I think Helex is leader or supreme Class. Kaon is a small deluxe and Vos is sorta a scoutclass. I wish they realesed their altmode concepts so we could make our works more accurate.

    Thanks Javaco.

    This could be a possibility. If I fail to sculpt his mask/face I will probably look fwd to this. Thanks for the idea.

    Thanks bros.

    So, these are the update pictures so far:

    Worked on his legs, chins, arms and cannon attachments. Next step is to make his abbs pannels, chest spoilers "spikes" and the head. Wish me luck.
