    I had the pleasure of commissioning TJ to do some work for me. This guy is very talented, no doubt at all.

    He fixed a couple of PE RCs for me. Patched up the broken wrists and elbows and now they are just as good, if not better than when I purchased them.

    Next I asked him to turn PE Rewinder and Ejector into target master versions of Topspin and TwinTwist. He needed to sculpt some custom parts for tank treads and wings, which he made from scratch. And to help further differentiate them, he threw in a pair of drills for TwinTwist that I didn't even ask for. And then topped them both off with paint jobs.

    He also finished off a custom project that required some creative problem solving and a lot of extra work and he really took it all in stride, along with my nitpicking. He nailed the vision I had in my head and added the finishing touches that the figure was lacking.

    Now he did all of these with tremendous quickness and worked late into the night to shorten the turnaround as much as possible. Very fair with pricing and really went far and beyond my expectations. But I think the thing that stood out to me most was how easy he was to deal with. Extremely pleasant to interact with and very receptive to ideas. Quick to respond and lots of updates and pics throughout the entire process. He truly is top notch.

    I can't thank him enough and am very much looking forward to working with him again in the future.

    Commissioned a Rack'n'Ruin a while back. He made it out of two Titan Returns Hardhead figures. Always gave steady updates, had suggestions to make things work, wanted to make sure I got what I wanted. Thanks for helping to complete my classic Wreckers shelf!

    Just got my custom Silverbolt made from Beast Hunters Grimwing! He's by far the coolest figure in my collection now. TJ did an amazing job. I had originally provided a color guide, but I wasn't entirely sure what I wanted and so I let TJ do it his way and that was absolutely the right choice. The modified wings, the new heads, the colors, all came out awesome. It was an amazing experience. Definitely recommend him for anyone looking to get an amazing custom figure!

    Just got my custom Chromia colored Windblade. It's even better looking in person and I highly recommend TJ for your custom and repaint jobs. He does excellent work.

    This is my second commission from Unicron 9...I had messed up the arms while painting the hands on Power of the Primes Optimus. He matched the the color of the arms and painted the arrows for me...He truly is an artist and is very fair priced, and extremely fast.

    Thanks again TJ.

    Just got back part 1 of a 3 part commission, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Unicron9 did a fantastic job with turning a Combiner Wars Prowl into a Combiner Wars version of Bluestreak and I look forward to how parts 2 and 3 will turn out as well! Unicron9 gets my highest recommendations! (included images also feature custom Shapeways parts designed by myself)

    Just got a pair of customs done by TJ and they look fantastic. Excuse the crappy cell phone pictures.

    The first was PotP Cloudburst repainted into a PotP Grand Shell to go with my Takara Grand Maximus. Really completes the set!

    The second was a paintjob for my Shapeways Knock Out parts. He did an awesome job matching the paint so that these parts go with the original Arms Micron Knock Out figure.

    Parts 2 & 3 of my three part commission (including the above posted Bluestreak).
    No better word describes Unicron9 than "Professional". His comission prices are reasonable, and he provides you with status updates, both in email text or with pictures when necessary/possible, every step of the way as he works on your commission. And ON TOP of that, will often ask for feedback on stuff he has done to make sure you are happy with his current work.
    I couldn't be more satisfied with the three figures Unicron9 customized for me, and going forward Unicron9 will be the first person I go to for figure customs whenever I get more crazy ideas such as these so long as he is accepting commissions whenever those times may be. Thanks for always being so easy to work with and keep making awesome customs for people just like these guys! - TheSledgeHammer
    (bonus pictures included below for funzies and just to show these 3 B-Bots + a previous commissioned Ratchet still work as combiner limbs using the new POTP Inferno as a torso)

    This man has done, some great work for me too! He customized Jolt, Wheeljack, Mixmaster, Sideways, Skids, Mudflap, Arcee Sisters, and Even Nitro Zeus for me. He is fantastic! I highly recommend him

    Unicron9 is the best in the business, no if and or buts. I hired him to do three custom figures for me in the final quarter of 2018.

    A rebuild of Beast Wars TM2 Megatron (which he turned into a 10 inch call almost masterpiece level figure with articulated wings, dragon neck, dragon tail... probably my favorite figure in my whole collection)
    A rebuild of Beast Wars Polar Claw -- which has to be seen to be believed. It is it is breathtakingly beautiful and looks like something you'd have 3D printed, the detail and craftsmanship required to pull off something like this just leaves me astonished.
    A rebuild of Beast Wars TM2 Dinobot (I'm running out of superlatives at this point, but it's just awesome)

    These can all be seen on his deviantart or shop, and you should check them out.

    If his sheer talent weren't enough of a reason to get a U9 custom figure, the deal does get sweeter -- he's also a consummate professional and just really cool to work with. Great communication, good prices (even on the obscenely difficult customs I like to order), cool dude, hard worker.

    Basically if you're thinking about getting any customs done, go ahead and hire Unicron9. He's the cream of the crop and he can make even your craziest action figure dreams come true.

    Unicron9 helped repair the red lion on my King of Beats Voltron figure. The red lion had snapped in half and he was able to put it back together and still maintain 90% of the articulation. Thanks a lot !

    91B028AF-8F5D-4620-B9C1-2B0920B9348A.jpeg TJ is the man. He fixed my broken Dancouga even though it is hard to do. It has a broken Shoulder and he made it fix that I can articulate. He is the man.
