    UPDATED: After a couple of people telling me she really needed a neck, I finally got around to giving her her one. I cut her head ball joint off and attached a post between the head and ball, then sculpted a sort of collar neck to cover that. It keeps the articulation but hopefully gives her a much more feminine look.

    Yes I know Airazor was already a female, but neither of her figures looked it at all. The TM2 version had roboboobs, but they were further apart than my grandmothers and looked more like shoulder armor disks or something.

    I love the TM2 Airazor's birdy mode, but I had to do some work on bot mode to make her look like a female and to kill that bleh yellow and brown robot color scheme.
    I cut her torso to pieces and reconstructed it to have much more narrow shoulders, a thinner waist, and thinner arms, then resculpted most of her chest to resemble the original, but more as I think it should have looked. Then I filled in most of the big holes and gaps all over her arms and legs, and painted her with a new color scheme that looks more like she has gold robot parts emerging from white feathered organics.

    Didn't mess with the bird mode much since I already really like it.

    Nice work, but looking at the pics, one more thing occurs to me, that would give this figure a more feminine "style".

    Longer neck. Right now her head is set deeply into her shoulders, makes her look a bit hunched and heavy-set even with all the mods you've made. Jack that head up on a longer ball-joint, and all that goes away.

    Just an idea. :)

    Yes I thought the same thing but the head already just barely clears the bar to tuck away for bird mode. Any extra neck length and she will have to have a head hanging out of her butt in bird mode.

    Sweet! I really like that mold, but it definitely needed femming up, and the robot mode is vastly improved by your new paint. Seriously tempted to give my own Airazor a facelift now...

    My only critique is I don't like the black detail work on her gold parts, especially the thighs and crotch. It makes her look hairy.

    Awesome work!
    I know exactly what you are talking about TM2 Airazor, I mean she could easily pass for a thin male persona... Hell, I even wanted to use one to create a Starscream out of.
    You did a phenomenal job on modifying the mold into a much more feminine-looking piece, and your paint-job is really stellar.

    This is excellent, and the "grandmother" comment just makes it that more entertaining. Well done.

    This looks exceptionally nice. I think if mine looked like this, I wouldn't have sold it long ago.

    I think her left boob is supposed to be white.

    Was that a calculated change?

    Either way, looks fantastic.

    Yep I did that sort of on purpose. I have the same reference pic, which is just the toy stylized to actually look right, so the toy was reference too...
    I was just adding random detail on her boobz and decided to paint the circle silver since she had a silver circle on one boob before. I gave up toy or comic accuracy when I even decided to repaint her these colors.

    Looks very good. I'd love to see you un-butch the Blackarachnia toy next.

    Also, this is the normal Transmetal. There is no TM2 Airazor (unless you want to include Tigerhawk)

    Oh yeah, I thought she was TM2 because of the mismatched boobs thing, hah.

    I already femmed up Blackarachnia real good like too. Check out my Deviantart gallery or look her up here. :)

    She is Awesome! Someone needs to duplicate this NOW! Shapeways or cast it I don't care! Not to mention make it available in other color plastics for her remolds! I want to do this desperately but can't sculpt for SLAG!

    I think they were referring to Beast WARS BA (non TM2), from what I can see you did Beast MACHINES, BM BA was Pretty femmed before, Now BW BA was a straight repaint of Tarantulus, so we're asking for a pinup BA based on the animation, for which her Toy was far from!

    Yeah the one I did was meant to just be a classics/universe type figure with aspects of all incarnations blended together.
    I would love to do a season 1&2 Beast Wars BA from the original figure and other parts. Maybe one day.

    Updated the original post with new pics. I gave her a neck to hopefully complete her more feminine look, as suggested by members here.
