    These guys were made from crossover venom and stand voyager sized with a headswap performed.
    One was painted in glossy alclad, the other dirty and roughed up with acrylics and enamels.

    Runamuck i would assume was the crazier and as such cares less for his appearance than his twin who I assume has the intelligence to maintain himself.

    The flames are made from hot glue and stolen from a human torch figure!

    These are cool, but you should have sanded off the tubing on the thighs. That's the only thing that really detracts from these great customs.

    Interesting. Nice change from the usual Wheeljack mode. Why are the sigils on fire? Their poses remind me of a couple wrestlers strutting before a bout, especially Runamuck.

    now that you say it i really wish i had..... d'oh

    I thought the fire looked good on the muscle car alt mode, like the engine block had too much power or something.
    I wanted them to come across like they were muscular yet dumb (like their TF wiki page indicates) so glad to see you picked up on it

    There are quite a few more pics in the link in 1st post, thanks

    I swear I can hear a Macho Man "OH YEEEAAAHH!!," coming through Runamuck and Hulkimania running wild through runabout. Nice work.

    THESE ARE AWESOME!!!!!
    The flames from under the hood are crazy cool! Like if it had too much to handle... I can totally see the battlechargers not giving a crap if they were on fire, so long as they could wreck mayhem and destruction.
    Definitely one of the best re-thinks on these guys I have ever seen!

    haha, love it. The wrestling thing seems to fit right in here

    Thanks for the compliments, i was going for that reckless style that their attitudes would suggest and I personally thought the flames looked pretty awesome too :D

    Hey look what I found!

    I'm the proud owner of these now. They look even better in person, they're full of character, a superb job! :D

    What a nice surprise! Didnt realise you were on here!
    Thanks for the support, hows the finish holding up? I tried a new type of lacquer on these than what I usually use.

    It's holding up really well. I love these guys so much i've got them displayed with my Fortress Max and Overlord on my favs shelf. :D 

    BTW I'm really glad you left the tubing on the thighs, it really works well with the head sculpt you used.

    Runamuck is just perfect, I love the blue arm/door.

    When I saw these on ebay I showed my Wife and instead of getting the usual raised eyebrow and tutting (LOL). She said they looked pretty cool so I took the gamble, and I'm so glad I did.

    In all honesty they are worth 5 times what I paid.

    Awesome job! Thanks again.

    well if they r worth 5 times (and I've seen the price, unfortunately 2late) wouldn't it b a nice guesture 2 send him some extra?? I mean that's what I would do.. heck I even recently bought 1 of those Venom's 2 customize and it cost me double then what u paid for a single item :( 

    sorry if this sounds harsh I have no intention,
    but I see custom being sold lately 4 so little that it hurts my feelings

    PEACE!

    OT: wonderfull customs...

    PS: O btw I'm glad the new owner & wife likes them :p  hehe

    Thanks man, as long as the customer is happy and it doesn't actually cost me money then I am happy. Really I only do this as a hobby and aim to make some money on each one so I can progress to the next custom.

    Usually the wife gives me 'the look' aswell when I think something is awesome too :eek:

    Well I'm certain that we'll do business again. I saved you in my favorite sellers list and I really liked the Blitzwing and Grimlock you did. I'm on here every day even though I don't post much, feel free to shoot me a PM with any new stuff you've done. :D

    Thats just the nature of the beast with customising, if you don't have a commissioner and go the eBay route the danger of getting a low winning bid is always there.
    Its not sunstorms fault, he got himself a bargain and no-one can hold him accountable for the price he paid.

    I always wonder where in the month to put my auctions, regularly in the UK people are paid at the end of the month, is this the same in america and other countries?

    Thanks for the support though mate.
