WiP WfC Dynobots, Sludge update 12/31 1st post So its basically been forever since I've worked on any TF customs, but they've always stayed close to my heart, so here we go. I think like a lot of people, I was a little disappointed that the Dynobots didn't make any sort of an appearance in WfC, so I thought I'd try them out. However, I've spent most of my time customizing doing work that involved more sculpting than re-engineering, so I pretty much had to do it as mostly just repaints. Of course this is a bit of an issue since there are only 4 WfC figures, and I sure as hell wasn't going to be using Bumblebee as one of them. Thankfully, Generations came through with Darkmount, whom I feel looks enough like a WfC character to be usable, and HftD came out with Terradive who with a little reworking will make a great Swoop I think. So heres the run down. Grimlock - WfC Optimus Sludge - WfC Megatron (i feel like the long cannon in vehicle mode is reminiscent of the dinosaurs long neck) Swoop - HftD Terradive Snarl & Slag - Darkmount and WfC Soundwave Now I need some help with 3 things: A) Should Swoop be Red or Blue B) Should Slag and Snarl be Darkmount and Soundwave, respectively, or vice versa? I'm leaning towards Slag/Darkmount and Snarl/Soundwave, but i'm not 100% on it. C) Should I scratch built all their weapons to be G1-ish like i did for Grimlock, or should I just modify some of the weapons that came with the base figures? Obviously the main reworking that needs to be done is on the heads. Since I'm really bad at pleasure delaying, I started with my favorite, Grimlock. For his head, I just sliced off about half of his ridiculously long aerials, ground the face down to nothing, and remade it into Grimlocks visage with stryene and fixit sculpt. You can't see it terribly well in the pictures, but he does have the teeth on his mouthplate, cause thats one of my favorite modern additions to him. His sword is made from styrene, and his gun is made from the nozzles of MP Skywarps null rays, and pieces from Marvel Legends figures. _________________________________________________________________ UPDATE 12/31: Sludge So heres an updated pic of Sludge. I like the paint on him alot, though its not quite done. I removed a large portion of the barrel from the cannon, and will probably paint it silver and gold to match G1 sludges dino neck and head. it'll store on his back most of the time, and whenever I feel like putting it on his arm, i'll probably flip it around to the two barreled side. So here are my questions. Does he need more color on on? If so, where? Also, does he look fine just repainted, or does he just look like Megatron with a different paint scheme? I think changing his head would go a long way towards helping with that.
