    I haven't posted here in a very long time, and I found this old custom while looking for items to sell at a Toy Show in Delaware in October, and figured I'd post it here.

    I'm usually not a dry-brush kind of person, but this was the first custom I did where I gave it a try.

    Basically I took Transformers Movie Wreckage and removed all the paint apps from his exterior vehicle parts. I painted a lof of the robot parts in a dark metallic navy blue. I applied highlights of red, orange, silver, and gold reminiscent of the original Cybertron Defense Red Alert. I also dyed the wheels black, as oppsed to the gray they were originally.

    I was actually talking to Superquad7 the other day about feeling bad for selling some of my customs, but I am at the point in my life where space isn't as freely available as it once was...and as such this guy is for sale in the TFW Buy/Sell/Trade forum.

    Comments and critiques are welcome, but I don't think I'll be customizing anytime soon...perhaps when the right idea comes to mind!

    Looks near perfect, IMO all it needs is a giant rail gun/shoulder cannon.

    I always intended to add the huge cannon, just never got around to it. I finished the piece right around the time I moved to my apartment...which made it near impossible to customize.

    I've always enjoyed making the Armada / Energon / Cybertron characters into customs...since they are so rarely used.

    I'm gonna try to throw up some other customs I never finished soon as well...and I'll probably end up selling them as well.

    I've seen this one in person. Very nice paint job. The weathering was also a nice touch. It's a shame you won't be customizing anytime soon. I've always enjoyed your work. You should at least try finishing that Alt Cannonball you had put away.

    Thanks for the kind words! Cannonball is the one I am probably going to try and finish. I've always considered him one of my best, and I feel bad everyday I look at him and see him unfinished, especially with all the cool accessories I made for him!

    So keep an eyeball out for that guys! If I can bear to part with him, someone might own an Alternators Cannonball soon!

    I think you did a really nice job, as always! :thumb 

    Finish him! :thumb 

    I completely understand your situation and motivations. I really hope that you can find a way to keep making customs, if that's what you want to do. Radicons is here to encourage you with whatever you choose to do, bud :thumb
