While I am taking a small break from kitbashing, I have a question for the community: What are your personal rules for kitbashing? We all have them. I have 3 main rules: An individual character should only get one kitbashed version for my collection. If I make a custom version of G1 Ironhide, I won't make another bash inspired by Ironhide, however I could make a custom version of Movie Ironhide since he is not the same character. No partsformers. No parts should have to be removed from the vehicle and reattached to the robot. Realistically, a Transformer would not have chest pieces or limbs magically come off and reattach. Exceptions are made for weapons and shields. If I need to have a part detach from the vehicle, it needs to convert into either a weapon or shield. Only one Transformer may be sacrificed per custom / No Transformer may be used only for parts. Knock offs and non-Hasbro robots may be torn apart and used just for parts, but any time I grab a piece off of an official Transformer, that Transformer must be transformed into it's own custom. If I were to take the wings from a Prime Beast Hunters Starscream to use on some custom, I would then need to make the wingless Starscream into it's own custom. Ofcourse, there have been a few times when I needed to bend or break the rules, but 99% of the time the rules apply. So what are some of your rules?
