    A total overhaul with updated pics on post #193

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...g1-s1-mp-scaled-collection-5.html#post8660332

    It's interesting comparing the pics lol

    Hey all, been meaning to do this for ages but been busy finishing off several figures. I am only interested in the original cast of the s1 cartoon at as close as damnit MP scale as I can get (minus Hercules of course but he is such an awesome figure I had to have him) and here are the fruits:

    Autobots (so far):

    Just started on Mirage, seriously considering doing Shockwave after due to the amount of time the third party version is gonna take. Then iGear can finish off with Ironhide/Ratchet and the bigger mini warriors and the third party MP Frenzy & Rumble will complete my 'cons.

    Hope you all like :)

    This is some serious awesomeness here. Just shows how a small collection can be amazing. If I was forced to sell stuff of, I would do exactly what you are doing. It is perfect!

    How did you do that Huffer? What's the base character for it? Looks like it could be hound.

    Cheers :)  He's a cunning bastard so both! I keep forgetting about those Koto figures but they are pretty much only there to portray scale.

    Cheers man, I'm not one for littering every nook and cranny with plastic crack so have set a relatively small goal. I'll be happier when Shockwave is standing in there tho being as he's my face character......and as I've just ordered one of those 'Handarm Passes' KO's it looks like he is definitely up after Mirage!

    That 'Huffer' is supposed to be Brawn! TBH I'm not that happy with him so will be all over iGears when it is released. He is made from an Alt Swindle half transformed in both the legs and hood.

    That was my mistake, I meant Brawn. Lol. He does look good though. At least I think so. I think I had Huffer on the Brain.

    Also, the Wheeljack, what mold did you use for him? The Sunstreaker mold?

    He has the bulk but I dunno, I can't put my finger on it so far I much prefer iGears.....I guess I will make the decision in October when it's out. For Wheeljack I used the Alt Viper mould yeah, Dead End to be precise. That pic came out really shitty so I'll have to retake when I get chance.

    Cheers buddy! Yeah they are my own customs. Sideswipe is a Tamyia 1/24 Countach with MP seeker legs and Alt Prowl chest & arms. Sunstreaker is half a 1/24 Countach Roadbot with MP seeker legs, Alt Shockblast arms and an Alt Dead End head. I do really need an Alt Sideswipe head to finish off Sideswipe properly but with the official MP coming out he will be getting replaced anyways.

    I really dig some of those custom MPs :)  How about a list of the artist/figure?

    Robocop will protect your collection. :cool:

    It's sabotage I tell ya!

    Cheers man, I just wish I could get my 18" Neca RoboCop and Terminator figures in there.....when I get my man cave it will be done! Along with finishing off my Hyperspin stand up arcade cabinet and making a sitting down cab for all the driving games!!

    Regarding customs, I did them all, some have taken alot of inspiration from pictures around the 'net. Optimus Timelord's Sidewsipe and Turboedguys Bumblebee for example.

    Full scratch customs - Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Bumblebee, Jazz & Brawn.

    Repaints - Trailbreaker, Ratchet, Ironhide, Bluestreak, Wheeljack & Reflector (who has one of ALt Skids wheels as a shutter - thanks Optimus Timelord for the idea!).

    Repolabelled - Prowl, Hound, Devastator and the Insecticons.

    Part customed - Megatron (G1 fusion cannon to replace the ridiculously large stock one), Skywarp & Starscream tail fin mods, FP Shrapnel has a G1 head and antennas, Soundwave has Alternator Skids arms and MP seeker hands, Ravage has KO oversized G1 rockets.

    Part customs still to do - get a G1 head for Kickback, replace Soundwave/Devastator heads with F_R casts. Thinking about extending Sideswipe's waist too when I get some more styrene and giving him real feet from Alt Prime....that will give him a little extra height and stability (EDIT - DONE!)

    Full scratch customs still to do - Mirage (half way done) & Shockwave. Thyvipera has posted MP Shockwave in the Radicons section and it is awesome beyond belief, pure win...I has the parts winging their ways to me right now :rock

    I am still loving those MP Lambo twins of yours. And I love that Sunstreaker is taller. I can just see those two bickering over it now hehe.

    Love your collection!

    Cheers but no need to be jealous man, your collection is awesome!!

    Cheers again man, he'll still be smaller....just, the more I look at him the more I just want him that bit bigger by having that section of the white/silver waist showing that he clearly has in pretty much all G1 media...and like in your sig! There is pretty much the perfect piece already under the hood it's just not big enough to be showing so it needs a little help I think. Also the more I hear about MP12 the more I think I'm really not gonna be happy with how small he may be so the search is on again for an Alternator Sideswipe head.........

    Yeah I know what you mean. He would look a bit better being that little bit taller. I'm sure you will figure something out.

    And yeah. The more speculation and thing said about MP-12 make me a bit less excited. I get why some people want scale and all that but really... I just want a big version of Sideswipe, damn it!

    We'll just have to see how it looks when it come out in the fall (I believe that is when he is scheduled.)

    And also, I'm a girl lol. But don't worry. It happens all the time here lol.

    Yup end of the year but I have already braced myself for abject disappointment......although there is a glimmer of hope depending on what Takara thinks the right scale is seeing as there really is no correct height as G1 material was so inconsistent. Meh, time will tell I guess but expect the worst and anything else is a bonus.

    Oh I call everyone man/mate. Maybe it's an English thing.....lol

    Oh, okay. It might be an English thing. I'm from DC.

    Yeah, I'm in the same boat. I'll wait and see but I'm not expecting to get exactly what I want. We'll see!

    Are Sideswipe and Sunstreaker transformable?

    I'm guessing no...but that would be awesome.

    Sideswipe and Sunstreaker have always been my favorite G1 Autobots too. I hope after Sideswipe we get a Sunstreaker that has his own transformation, and is not just a repaint/retool.

    Nope, I'm not that good at reshelling!! As long as I get the robot mode right though I'm very happy. I'm seemingly one of the rare breed of TF collectors who never transforms their figures and never displays in alt mode (besides Grimlock of course). All robots and only for display.

    Regards official MP's a Sunstreaker would be awesome....I'm just concerned that they are gonna be too small.

    A slight re-jig in anticipation of the incoming MP Shockwave......who will transform!!

    I also swapped out Soundwave's arms. He can now press his own eject button :D  Should be getting his new head soon too. Still unsure whether to paint the clear tape door blue like in the cartoon tho.
