    I've done 55 customs so far, and I was thinking to myself, which one is my favorite and I kinda got hung up.

    Red and Black favorite color combo, and Ive done 2 with that theme (http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radic...cliffjumper-updated-decals-bot-mode-pics.html and a Black/Red Mustang).

    Im in the Air Force, so My http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/208089-usaf-security-police-alt-raven.html /Magnus is special to me.

    Im a HUGE powerd Convoy fan, so My http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/209427-alt-powered-convoy.html, http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/209425-classics-powered-convoy.html, http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/225414-animated-blue-convoy.html, Animated Leader Class, and http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/209423-g1-powered-convoy.html customs of PC

    My http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/256348-diaclone-ironhide.html came out so smooth its really high on the list

    For overall bad-assness the Altmode on my http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/248611-alt-megatron.html cant be beat

    Ive gone one on deck that Ive been working on in one way or another for 2 years now, and that one is just plain cool. trust me

    But if I had to pick one... I couldnt! I have to say theres a tie from My Alternators Shattered Glass series: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/248608-alt-shatted-glass-rodimus.html, http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/248603-alt-shattered-glass-optimus-prime.html, and http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/248609-alt-shattered-glass-grimlock.html


    So what's your favorite custom that YOU'VE worked on?

    I infused a lot of creative work into my Alternators REV. I don't think it's the best custom I've made, nor was it necessarily my favorite to work on. It's mainly because it's been a personal endeavor for me artistically and creatively.

    Project thread:
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/207252-alternators-rev.html

    Aside from that, each one of my creations is special to me in some sort of way, even if it's the "it's about time this piece of junk is finished!" effect.

    Another of the same sort of vein is my Alternators Midnight. Again, not really my "best" work, but I had this image of evil coolness for this character conceptually, and totally ended up at another places as the end result due to color palette swaps and such. I guess a comparison to the Fallen might be made now, but I didn't have that character in mind at all at any one point, since I utterly despise the character (it's one of only a few that I detest).

    Personally, the very subtle dark navy is what really sold me in the end with this project and what I had in mind.

    Another for me is my police force. Another aspect about my work is simply supplementation to what we can already have:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/206410-alternators-streetwise.html

    I just don't have a runaway favorite, so I'll have to stop there! Even with projects that turn out with a few flaws I end up liking really well. *shrugs*

    RotF leader Megatron

    So far mine is my RotF leader Megatron. I still have to paint him, but this mod made him so much more enjoyable for me...

    My personal fav from my own set: Easily Masterpiece Scourge. It had zero planning but ended up being exact to the character model in every way. Anyone who works with styrene also knows you need to stiffen the hell outta the project for any durability but this custom is primarily sculpting fillers which made it incredibly strong.

    It will soon be replaced with Skyfire as my fav........

    [​IMG]

    ....which is just as toon accurate and durable but is far more detailed and will be painted by Spurt Reynolds. Hell, I can't wait to see it done.

    Rod, you know I enjoy ALL of your customs for some strange reason :ev: 

    Those hands. Those hands! :rock 

    I think if I ever get that figure, I'd do the same things. It's some really nice work, and it's very inspiring!

    Those Monsterbots rule. The end. :) 

    I heart Wikkid and his work (especially the Skyfire) so much.


    Unicron's stomach is too cool for words. As much as I like Amazonicron, I've always really liked this custom. A LOT.

    Blaster rocks, man. Gotta give you some mad props for all of the weapons you've made for various things as well :thumb 

    This has always been my favorite of yours as well. Extinction really ties this for me as well :thumb

    For me I dig the Classics style or whatever you call it for customs those are cool and other customs that aren't Transformers related like superheroes or whatever sparks my interest. So yeah good stuff in my honest opinion.

    My customs are not as nice as some of the ones that have posted, but here are a few of my favorite... My most favorite that I have done is SG Richochet... I made him for a charity auction, it should be coming up soon that ThielMJ is having...

    [​IMG]

    the second runner up is a set... I did these for ThielMJ also... I really like how they all turned out as a group... I just wish I could have got a cast of some of their heads...

    thanks SQ7 i never really considered the weapons customs as much as i do accessories (and i kinda forgot about them)

    and some of the work in this thread i havent seen before that MP scourge is new to me and totally kick ass!

    but a lot of great work i see in here that i remember from when i was going through this board long before i started doing customs, and i remember the feeling of awe i had seeing what so many of you guys were capable of and inspired me to try my hand at it. So thanks for that

    Id say my favorite would be my scratch built Masterpiece Sideswipe, although i'm still not finished painting him. I just have so much time and love into it.

    And even though its not as complicated, or flashy as some of my other customs, my articulated Sharkticon is probably second. I just love this guy for some reason.
