    This was an amazing amount of fun to make & is by far the most complex thing i've worked on.

    [​IMG]
    Originaly i was going to use Animated deluxe (2pk) Megatron as my base but after about a week & a half of making nothing more than a mess i was pretty close to giving up.Just when i started to feel i wasnt going to get anything done for the contest I got my hands on a ROTF Soundwave & i thought his transformation could be made to work.

    [​IMG]
    Heres what he's made from;The main body is a body & legs are ROTF Soundwave with most of the details cut off,the chest is the base of universe Cyclonus arms turned sideways & coverd in styrene,the torso & waist are from Uni Sideswipe,the arms are mounted on ball joints from ani jazz,the tops of the arms are from Uni Sideswipes legs,forearms from Uni Prowl,Hands from Movie Protoform Prime with the fingers sharpend,i used gundam parts cut to shape & filled,feet from Ani Jazz.
    The wings came from an Eldar 40K grav tank cut to fit & styrene panels added to the underneath were the legs fit in alt mode,the thruster is also from the Grav tank mounted on a part from Uni Galvatron.
    The dome thingy came from a power ranger shark.
    The head was made from Uni Cyclonus with a gun tip from the grav tank for his head laser & his beard was sculpted with green stuff.
    Lots of styrene & green stuff to make up all the gaps.

    For Fracas i did a little resculpting to make him more like his G1 counterpart.

    [​IMG]

    Painted with Games Workshop Acrylics (Mainly Regal blue,Space wolf grey & Skull White),faction symbols were made by Primusx1.

    I have to say i was totaly blown away by everyone's entries & consider myself pretty damn lucky to have got first place.

    So I guess the obvious question on everybody's mind:

    Who do we have to kidnap to hold ransom for this figure, and can you please post their address?

    The best kitbashes are the ones that don't LOOK like Kitbashes.

    I read through your list of where all the donor parts came from, and I STILL don't see it. All I see is a very original, extremely well-painted Classics Scourge. I think you've basically pushed this so far from it's original component roots that it qualifies as a wholly original mold now.

    If only we could mass-produce this.

    the moniker spurt reynolds has become synonymous with stellar paintjobs.
    I'll be damned if brilliant engineering is added to the synonym!
