    So here is my take on the two jump starters. I will more then likely give them another coat of paint. They were inspired by several of the really nice customs on this board. This was my first set of customs so sorry if they suck.



    Thanks for looking.

    They don't suck, once you give them another coat, they'll be awesome. They're great as is.

    Meggy turns out to be SUCH a versatile little mold!

    GREAT WORK!

    They are very original man, they just need a few touch ups.

    I have to say, while yes the blue paint at least needs some work, overall the concept and execution for first customs is pretty damn good.

    Nicely done lad.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Yeah the WFC megs mold is pretty versatile, I wanted to use the same base mold like the original jump starters and this one worked well for both.

    Very cool man! I love the simplicity, and both have the same transformation just like their G1 counterparts! Nice use of the G1 parts mixed with a new mold for some great first customs!

    I'd be interested in seeing a different hue of blue used as a wash on the already blue parts. I think doing that and adding some very subtle silver metal weathering would make these very interesting. Continue the treatment throughout, and I'd think it would be slammin'.

    So far, I really like what you've done here. Thanks so much for sharing! :thumb

    Wow, I'll echo the other comments here. Those are both so good, it took me a second to figure out what they were based on. Fantastic. :D
