    It's been a long time since my last custom. Almost a year if you remember my Energon Megatron to G1 Galvatron. Anyway I'm starting a new customizing project. It involves Cybertron Defense Red Alert into a popular G1 character. Who will it be? Watch over the coming weeks to see. Let me know if the pics don't work, I'm trying to post this from behind a firewall at work.

    Here's some progress. I've dyed most of the white parts to
    the color you see below. I've sanded off most of the paint in
    areas to repaint differently later. I've done major work on the head and you'll see that at a later stage
    because what I've done so far would give away the
    identity instantly.

    Here we have the lower part of the vehicle in dark blue.
    Then comes some paint aps and finishing the head.

    I can't think of any black and blue bots from G1 that even remotely look like Red Alert here....

    Well, a lot of folks have been doing Cybertron Defense Red Alert into Megatron. Is that your plan?

    You mean Cybertron Defense Scattorshot right?



    It looks like things are fitting back together nicely.
    This is a rough
    assembly of the body back in vehicle mode. The
    Ransack in package is only there to hold the missile
    up.

    No.

    and why tear up a perfectly good Cybertron toy to render it to the inferior G1 era?

    Nope, I meant Cybertron Defense Red Alert. I saw one as Megatron on Livedoor (the Japanese TF custom page) and a WIP pic of one on tfmaster.com.

    I'm guessing that it's a homage to both G1 Soundwave and the Stalker mold. What I'd like to see is a Perceptor kitbash.
