    Frenzy in his R/C car mode.

    And movie Blitzwing! I got allspark Brawl yesterday and decided to do this because someone posted up doing this and never posted it again. Here he is in tank, jet and robot mode. I just updated him by putting a knock off formers jet piece onto him.

    Before you keep putting yourself down on your posts,think about this;If you're satified with your customs,dont worry about any negative comments because theres always going to be someone who doesn't like what you do.This website is full of customizers who can give you good tips to help you with your hobby and I gaurantee you if somebody can only make rude,nasty remarkes about your work,ignore them.When you post your custom also remember that you ARE going to see what people think good,or bad and thats how you can improve your hobby;CONSTRUCTIVE CRITIZISM.Whatever you do in life,it doesnt matter if you're a winner or a loser;just the fact that you tried makes you a winner.

    I dunno... Blitzwing's jet mode may not look much now, but if I were you I'd experiment with him a bit before painting him - I wouldn't be surprised if a could be made a lot more jet-like with a few mods. Sometimes it's worth taking your time with customs, and letting things happen slowly.

    And Swampflight makes a good point. The trick with criticism of all types is to listen to all of it. Think about it, and take on board whatever you think helps you. Don't dismiss or accept advice automatically; mull it over and think about whether you think it helps you or not, on this custom or the next.

    I think it's pretty neat. And this Blitzwing jet mode is as plausible as movie Megatron's.

    Look forward to seeing more.

    I agree with Ramrider and Swampflight. Just because someone else may not think it's great dosn't mean everyone does. I think the Blitzwing is great. way to think outside of the box. It looks like you are useing acrylics. If I may suggest. try taking the mold apart and use krylon fusion spray as a base coat. Than use acrylic washes to darken some areas. Be sure to wipe away excess washes so they don't stick to the main colors, then drybrush with a silver or grey testors enamel. I have had very good luck with this. also use the tutorials. They are very helpful.

    I was thinking maybe a 1:72 scale model of an f-16. It may have parts that can be incorperated into Blitzwings airplane mode.

    thank you MrMurder. I'll feature him in a stop motion that i'm planning

    Here's one of his quotes while chasing Universe Autobot Frenzy

    Frenzy: Hey Dips**t! Can't keep up?
    Blitzwing (as jet): The name is Blitzwing (turns into tank) you insignifigant little pile of... Oh crap!

    I think that'd be WAY too big. Deluxe scale seekers are nearly spot-on for 1:100 scale.

    First of all both figure look very cool. You may be onto something with the Blitzwing there. Kudos for being very inovative.

    Secondly yes crit is a very large part of doing custom work. You get used to it and I beleive that it only makes you better. You are going to find guys that will blanantly say your work is crap. ignore these guys cause they are not giving you anykind of input what so ever. If its crap tell me why, just don't say it, what the reason!

    Third is YOUR OPINION! Thats the voice and opinion that matters most. If people don't like what you did with a figure thats their loss. As long as you are happy with what you created thats what really counts.

    The powers-that-be (that is, the mod lads) create the galleries, and they're adding work as and when they can. There's a message about the progress, and how we can help make it easier, here.
