I went to swap this guy's arms with another Kreon's and the shoulder post just popped off with the rest of the arm, no warning or anything. Not too miffed since I have 2 other Crankstarts, but worried just how easily it broke.
Getting the remnants of that post out was a major pain.

I've popped other Kreon arms off without incident, so I don't think I did anything excessive.

New custom Kreon:



I hope they'll release an official version of Sunstreaker with a correct helmet, but a repainted Starscream helmet gets the job done for now.

The painted yellow on the arms gives this guy a neat look, I got the idea from the human SWAT Kreon.

Still painting the torso details on my customs, although I keep looking for some kind of transfer medium that would give a more even look. I'm not a big fan of using decals for the entire chest, I only use them for logos and numbers, etc.

More to come...

Hi strangers!

I really, really like that Sunstreaker... And I'll be sure to copy it

I understand what you say about decals but I really can't paint as accurately and neatly as that, so will stick with my cheat method

Anyway, after a little while off from making the little fellas, here are two of my favourite Bots in Kreon form. I know I said I'd have some Cons ready when I came back, and I'm working on it, but hey, I love them good guys.



I've only just realised that in my excitement I haven't given Blaster his symbol yet. Oops.

Those are awesome! I couldn't think of a good way to do Blaster with current pieces, but that's great.

The face on Tracks is really cool. I'm working on a custom for him right now too using some different pieces, it'll be neat to compare the different approaches.

Thanks! I've had to work on a few faces as not everyone is grey

Also I've pressed a lot of 'human' parts into service which means starting from scratch face-wise anyway.

Right, if I don't have a Con ready for my next post you can all pelt me with rotten fruit or something.

Could do with some minor tweaks, like a black vest and yellow guns.
Alternatively, Mindwipe:

Doesn't need the vest...
I almost have enough parts to make both of them, just one of them needs to use another set of legs.

This makes an excellent start to Beast Era Ravage:

Just needs a proper black cat head. Maybe this?

Eh...
Does Lego have a cat head I can use?
