    I found something I believe you guys would really enjoy seeing. It's a TFMaster custom from 02 that none of you have ever seen before, Armada Mindwipe. As far as I remember, I'm the only person he ever showed these to.

    Unfortunately, it never made it past this stage. Not long after this, he scrapped it, and used it for parts. He said he wasn't happy with it. It's a shame. I always thought it looked cool.

    He was the motivation for me bashing. It would have been sick, just like his other pieces of work.

    Same here, i stumbled across Transtopia on google on one glorious day, and was shocked to find that there was an entire website devoted to customization of transformers.

    the late tfmaster was many things to his fellow fans

    a master kitbasher an advisor of sorts to those of us who work in the craft of custom kitbashing and a true inspiration to a great many of his fellow fans as well

    he wasn't just one of us , he was the best of us and quite possibly one of the , if not the greatest kitbasher in our side of the world

    may he rest in peace and may we know his kind again one day

    While Radicons does not have access to the message board history of Transtopia [that access is owned by Ryan and Seibertron.com], the Radicons Staff were dedicated to preserve as much as Transtopia as we had access to [Ryan and Seibertron retain TFmaster's galleries and things indicative to Transtopia.com]. One of our first missions with the Radicons growing was to ensure that artists have a healthy and robust resource to always come to. This meant to first preserve those things that everyone resourced Transtopia.com for. Since then, we've been adding and growing on those things.

    If one ventures to our "Tutorials and How Tos" section, the articles that were present on Transtopia.com are here; if one accesses our "Radicons Gallery", the galleries of most of the Transtopia artists are there. Radicons was built on a wealth of internal Radicons history as well as building upon the foundation that Transtopia created for artists. Many of the artists who posted at Transtopia are Radicons (and were before Transtopia.com was absorbed into the Seibertron boards), and we've seen many new faces as well. It is our hope that Radicons continues to grow and expand to serve Transformers artists in all of the best ways.

    I knew TFmaster well enough to confidently say that he'd be happy with Radicons at its present state, as well as the future Radicons holds for the customs community as THE place for Transformers customs :)

    Can't really say anything new to this one, but yes, in short, we have nearly everything that was on Transtopia, save the actual threads, here. :D 

    Gryph, thank you so much for sharing these pictures! Indeed, that really does look like it would've been a really sweet custom.

    I really don't get why he scrapped it... It looks great already and it's not even painted. If I were to do this, I'd go the same way except that I'd use RID Megatron to get the beast parts.
    I used to be an exclusive transtopian...IMO, I never posted anywhere else. Sadly, the moving of TT on Seibertron did'nt go as I would've hoped. But I'm happy a good majority of them TT's are now here and on sector70. RIP Bill
