    Well back in 2001 before TFMaster started Transtopia I had found his original site, A site that up into that point in my life I never dared think of chopping up Transformers for Kitbashing.
    I had seen so many of his early customs at the time he was doing a lot of R.I.D. projects as well as some other stuff.

    I had thought What i'm about to show was lost forever and i would have to touch them up and take new pics (Which im sure a few ppl here will pester me to do lol)

    so behold TFMaster's influence on me... My first Kitbashes!

    Both Sideswipe and Sunstreaker have G-1 heads.

    I remember him saying how he admired that I used the Chest cover from R.I.D. Prowl as part of Sunstreaker's Engine and that they looked great. And that it was something he didn't think of.
    His kind words gave me the insperation to do the next set of customs..

    Wow, I love the way that the red on Streaker's shoulders gives an illusion of flames.

    Thanks everyone, Considering these guys are now close to 8 years old they are holding up pretty well, but do need some touch ups on the paint and a bath in clearcoat since I didn't know about that at the time lol.

    TF Master inspired many of us to start bashing. Powermaster Prime blew me away when I first saw it, but I think my personal favorite was his Armada Sunstorm.

    His work is an influence on every piece that I do.
