    (I wish there was a prefix for "Heavy Repaint"...)
    Howdy, y'all.
    After some time, I've decided to post completed pics of my custom Titanmasters, "Vance" and "Snark". Both are based on custom Headmaster (Jr)s I commissioned from fellow TFW2005 member Bellyboy a few years back.

    "Vance" is a stunt car driver and good ol' boy who is the Headmaster for (General) Autobahn Lee. (It is my hope to get Cybertron Downshift/Movie 1 Big Daddy converted into a General Lee inspired Autobot. Titan Masters are a perfect fit for where his head goes, provided I had a compatible neck piece.) "G1" Vance is made using reproductions of Fangry's face, Lug (Hosehead)'s torso and Kreb (Horri-bull)'s legs. Titan Master Vance uses Fangry's face and Loudmouth's body.

    "Snark" was initially an idea for the reverse parts for Vance, and meant to be a spare Headmaster (Jr.), similar to the 6 spares made for TF: Headmasters in 1987. (A shame spare HMs weren't made for the West, because as you can see (below), I ended up with a lot of (2nd hand) body-less Headmasters as a kid.) Snark was named by Bellyboy (because I had no clue what to call him). Snark is a Nebulan gamer and sometimes annoying know-it-all. "G1" Snark was made using reproductions of Hosehead's face and Brisko/Wilder (Fangry)'s torso and legs. Titan Master Snark uses Fangry's head, torso and legs, and Skytread's face and arms.

    Let me know what y'all think.

    My only pet peeve with the Titanmasters is that they lose a lot of paint upon transformation. Luckily, I know the paint mix formulas to repaint them.

    Thank you, King Glurch.

    If you were curious about my weapons choices, I decided to pair them with weapons unique to the connected head. Autobahn Lee was supposed to carry an Energon Crossbow (due to a probation) that secretly converted into a "vintage" laser rifle. (A while back, I planned to have the barrel off of a 1985/"small" Optimus Prime rifle glued to the shaft of an Energon Arcee missile, then have that union reproduced specifically into missiles for Movie 1 Elita-One's launcher/crossbow. Without the extras, the launcher section of Energon Arcee/Movie 1 Elita-One's weapon looks like Optimus's rifle.) As for Snark, he doesn't have a specific partner, though I thought of buying a (surplus) Titans Return Twinferno to repaint as a Decepticon politician. Since Titans Return profiles imply that the Headmasters give their partner(s) unique powers upon joining, I'd say that Snark's power is giving his ally flame-projecting weapons (such as Horri-Bull's flamethrower). If I had to pair Snark with a vehicle/drone, I'd like to give him a gray & black repaint of Repugnus's alien/bug.
