    Hello. Back with another OC custom, and a very bizzar one for me.

    I usually don't care much for doing heavy battle damage for my own customs. Some people do exceptionnal work in this regard and I highly respect that, but my preference is to keep my customs on the cleaner side.

    Enter the only exception to this general rule of thumb:

    Partsfiend:
    Function: Assassin/Shock trooper
    15872691791436027454496570208111.jpg 15872692177101823809679020418726.jpg

    20200418_221949.jpg 20200418_222023.jpg

    So, why would I bother doing this if it's not my usual style?

    EASY! Using the CW Prowl mold, I'd made a simple CW Autotrooper mod last year for another multi-part project. I had placed said custom in my cabinet(as I would asume many would) and left it for the time being.

    I wanted to work on the project a few weeks later and went to transform said Autotrooper when, to my neverending stupor, I'd discovered that one of the legs BROKE at the hinge for the leg that lifts the side of it for the transformation! HOW?! IT WASN'T BROKEN BEFORE! It was just sitting in my cabinet.

    Then I tried to fix it but it go sealed in car mode. Oh, wonderfull!!!

    My solution? Get another CW Prowl mold, swap out the leg, done.

    Also make an OC out of the spare mold with the broken leg.

    His backstory is that he is quite litteraly parts. More specifically, he is the reanimated spare parts of multiple dead nameless decepticons that we use as target practice in Fall of Cybertron who's escape pod from the Nemisis before it crashed in earth's prehistoric ocean(where it would be found in Beasy Wars season 3), crashed on land and killed most of them, mangled the others and sent them in a state of being consious while in emergency stasis for 4 million years. Eventually their concsiousnus melded together somehow. Now one mind of many voices. It woke up in a junkyard on earth and using both dead decepticons and junked cars, took the name Partsfiend and was found by Galvatron and Bruticus who discovered that he has the capability to somehow assimilate weapons and copied the ability to combine! Woops.

    Outside if the base CW Prowl mold and the CW Sunstreaker head, I cant even begin to tell you what else he is made from or painted with. Bits and pieces of junkers and spare parts.

    And fully armed:

    So that's it for this thread. Weird one but still fun as an experimental custom.

    Hope you enjoy and see you next time.

    This looks a bit like a crossover between a zombie transformer and a transformer version of Frankenstein's monster. And reminds me of a bit of Cyberverse Shadow Striker.

    And it would fit pretty well into DeviantArt user Jin-Saotome's End of the Road customs line IMO. Maybe it could be an End of the Road version of Shadow Striker.
    Does it still work as a combiner limb?

    Anyway I like it :thumbs2:  Even though I can't make out a face on that head :lol

    Thank you very much! And you are right about the Zombie crossed with Frankenstein's monster. It was part of my inspiration.

    And thank you for pointing out that this looks like an End of the Road figure of Shadow Striker. I honestly never thought of either. But it really does fit the bill, doesn't it?

    And for you final question, the awenser is yes:

    He does still combine. Also here are some closeups of his face. Enjoy!

    OC stands for original corpse, right!?! Love the back story on this guy. He looks like Wolverine after a dust up with Sentinel, growing back his body. Nice work!

    Oooh, I think I spotted an eye :lol 
    I'd say most of his face got eaten off by other zombie transformers.
    He looks great in combined mode, as well :thumb :thumb :thumb 
    Are you gonna make a full combiner like this? (Please! Please! Please!)
    Your tricycle custom already fits pretty well with him. Only three or four to go :p

    I never thought of making an entire combiner in his style before. It could be interesting. But I wouldln't use Streat-Beat(my tricycle custom) as he already belongs to the team I have Partsfiend on in the picture.

    Though I do want to make another trike or choppercyle custom, so I would use that instead.

    However I would need to put that idea on the backburner for now. I'm currently trying to balance working on 3 projects and I have at least 10 more to get to afterwards(one of which being Streat-Beat's team, the Road Sweep Team). And many of these are multipart (or character) projects. At least I have the time to catch up.

    But there is 1 team that I do have Partsfiend collaborate with in my headcannon:

    Galvatronus and the Dreads, 2 of which are WIP's, They are the next team I will post about;)
