    Recently finished another commission by Delta Star. This time it was WST Hoist. Delta wanted to give him a different alt mode. So Hoist know becomes an off road military tow truck. The front of the truck lends itself well in keeping the original look of the G1 toy. I was itching to put more details on him, but due to the size, they would of never shown up when printed. Delta will be putting some custom made stickers on him for details, and to match the g1 look.

    Looks like Chop Shop will be next. Undecided after that. I really, really like the updated Hoist. I think I'll stay true to some G1 characters, but I definitely want to see more new takes like this one. It's just gorgeous :)

    Thanks for the comments everyone.

    Well, thats the great thing about commissions. You can get something made to your liking. I usually don't make commissions public, due to the amount the client pays for the work. But Delta wanted these available for anyone to order.


    I use Softimage 4.2. Its about 6 years old or so. But I love the modeling tools, so I haven't bothered to upgrade yet. :) 




    I want to do a WST Rodimus Prime. One thing I've been thinking of is doing full colored PVC style figures, like the Heroes of Cybertron line. Shapeways has a material that can be printed with full textures. So I plan to try it out.
