    To the most supremely patient Psycho Fred: Thank you for allowing me to finish! I'm sorry, but I won't be accepting any more orders for Impactor kits. Please don't contact me with inquiries. As much as I would like to make more than the handfull I have left to ship, I can't handle any additional work. Thanks for asking, though!

    This is my final Impactor custom, at least with this mold. Once I'm all caught up with commissions I think I'd like to build a LSOTW accurate version. For those awaiting Impactor kits, this will be the head, weapon, gun, chest plate and harpoon hand included in that kit, so please Gmail (darkcavecustoms@gmail.com) me if you don't care for it.

    The head was sculpted from the super mode head from the Energon Superion/Storm Jet bot, some Apoxie Sculpt and a lil' patience. The hands from an Alternators Optimus Prime. The Cannon was the Mech-Tech weapon from the DotM Bumblebee, the handle was shaved down from a old GI Joe Sigma Six weapon. The BFG is from a GI Joe Mech walker modified with pegs so that it attaches to his harpoon arm. Testor's Model Master paint all around.

    Great job man, it's cool to see you back at it! Aside from his horrific color scheme, I'm always a fan of your Impactors!

    This turned out super nice! There's a LOT of really cool things going on with this piece. I especially like the metal hue you chose for the guns.

    I look forward to the LSotW version :)

    Yes. Yes he is. And yes this is.

    If you've ever ran into hard times, or life flipped you for a loop and knocked on your ass, then you'd understand. If not, then keep living....it'll come.

    As always man, great work. Looking forward to whats to come....do you see a PK in your future? :cool:

    TFW2005.com does not condone in any way shape or form any member not making good on transactions that are agreed upon. However, if a person has completed a transaction, we highly encourage members to post their feedback (positive or negative) in the designated areas. This is not one of them.

    Customs is not a transaction forum. If you need to pm a member, do so, but there's no need to post such in a Customs thread or comment asking about a commission, posting links to eBay (we have a forum for that too, as well as other areas), or anything of the like. When a member posts in a project thread, be it Customs or Fan Art, it is to be critiquing the project presented.

    Also, while autobotx23 has had some struggles, he has communicated with Staff that he is working on taking care of those things. As long as he does that, then yes, he is welcome to post here. TFW2005.com and Radicons are known because of how well we treat others as well as being such an awesome place for artists to post their work. We intend to keep it that way.

    Been a huge fan of these since you started doing them, Earl! There's just something with your paint apps that make this sucker stand out and look detailed. Excellent work, my friend! Glad to see you're back in the game, kicking ass, & taking names.
