    UPDATE 8-16-2010: Weapon stand added page #2



    The FALLEN shall Rise Again!!! And he has. With my newest custom.

    Had this sitting in my to do box and finished it up last week sometime while working on other things at the same time.

    The Fallen was made from a Universe Onslaught/Hardhead mold and I must say after using it twice now I really love this base fig. Big and solid but plenty of room to dabble and tinker in.

    For this version of the Fallen I wanted to go a bit more steampunkish with the feel to it. More or less I wanted him to look at bit like a old style steam furnace or cast iron black stove of death. Thus the silver paint apps on the rivet on top of his black base body.

    And before anyone starts getting up in arms about the Decepticon symbols I wanted to give this fallen more a movie and WWI mash of origins. One other mixing of the two in the weapons area.

    WEAPONS
    ========
    If figure The Fallen as more of a melee bot. So I loaded him out with a plethora of close combat weaponry. The Javelins on his back also give him the flaming inferno on his back like in the comics. The Axe, claw,and javelins came from a Sigma Six Cobra Commander and the use of these weapon are inspired by Autobot X23's custom of the same Character.

    *- The Javelins can connect together giving The Fallen not only another melee weapon but also a nod to his movie incarnation whom wielded one as well.

    Alt mode
    =======
    In alt mode it is still essentially the same mold with a few tweaks. For the turret barrels I use movie Brawls cannons. I took out the electronics and sunk in the light bar. The scarring on the Alt mode all line up for the most part,but in bot mode they are a bit more scattered which was one of my favorite aspects of this custom.

    That is what I was going for actually. They don't look very gentle or as if they would be finesse in their usage. :Gouki:

    I didn't think it was possible to want this mold any more than I did before seeing this.

    I'm impressed. He looks like a f'n beast you don't want to meet down a dark alley, and everything from the paintjob to his weapons definitely screams badass.

    love the weapons, and you almost, almost make this mold mistake worth keeping....

    Excellent paint job, nice and clean, yet you still managed to give him the scratches and keep that looking still clean. Awesome job.
    Love the head, what did you do for it? Almost looks like you took a Cybertron Megs head and modded it.....it almost reminds me of Scorpion from MK.

    Love what you did, but I still hate this size class for the mold......

    Thanks for the comments you guys.


    Nah . Had I not double checked to see if some did a Classics Fallen I would have never thought to use Cobra Commanders flaming weapons.


    Actually the head is a Alternators Prowl head and the face grill/mask is the Universe Onslaught/Hardhead's lower jaw. And It does look somewhat Mortal Kombat Ninja-ish.

    And look for this to be up on eBay sometime tonight for those interested.

    And here is another little tid bit I was waiting to reveal fully and it is a Melee weapon stand.

    I use a Gundam 1/60 PG RX-78 for the torso with a lot of the panels ripped off and butcher for battle damage. I base coated it black and drybrushed it numerous shades of metallic silver and then use a bright pink watered down to look like energon life liquid flowing from various points.

    with me watering down the pink paint I helped give a natural downward flow to give it more realistic look IMO.

    Enjoy and C&C
