    Aw man, I love this thread. Thanks for keeping it going, guys. Can’t remember if I’ve made much since the last time I showed anything here, it might have been my Dinobots 2.0 or my custom “Supah Kre-o Karts”.

    But it’s been a while.

    Glad to see you back! Your photos helped me a lot when designing some of my own work, and in fact your figure for Blurr (as seen above) was the direct inspiration for my own take on the character for the Battle Changers!

    It's a bit of a rough job, though.

    I finally decided to reward myself after my hard work of bringing the characters of the Transformers to life...by making a character of my own original design and character!

    Everyone give a warm welcome to Decepticon Spaceshot!
    IMG_3750 2.png
    I'm really proud of this figure, mainly because it's a figure with her own dedicated build. Spaceshot is basically my original Decepticon character that is loosely based on the Micromaster of the same name from G1. And much like there, Spaceshot is meant to be partnered up with Blackout. I still need to give her some decals, but otherwise I'm super proud of what I was able to accomplish. I took influences from ROTF Breakaway, BC Starscream, BC Soundwave, and even my BC Powerglide. I'm really happy by how it turned out, though I can't stand the lilac purple tiles on the feet. I'll have to find better pieces for that.

    Sorry I'm a noob at Kre-o and custom labels. Where or how do I get it to a decal and how do I make it the right size? Thanks again...

    Any kind of sticker paper will do, be it paper labels or more high quality stuff. There's a more complicated way to do it which involves waterslide decals, so you'll have a choice.

    But a constant in both techniques is that, when you're about to print the paper on your computer, you can zoom in the right amount so that the online paper will match the paper you're printing on in size. Then take a Lego or Kre-O torso, and scale the decal down to the right size because the light from the computer screen will glow through the paper.

    IMG_20200603_152538.jpg I like to take kreon heads and put them on bigger bodies

    To the right is firestrike and the other is a robot with a jetpack/tank pack

    Thank you all. Everyone on both TFW2005 and Reddit that has supported this project. Thank you for the dedication you have given me, and the dedication I have hopefully paid off.

    I could not be more thankful for your audience and patience. You guys are the best. As of now, I have 120 Kre-O Battle Changers after the line ended with only 12 official releases.

    This project has given me the manifolds to go above and beyond with my work...and I've learned interesting and valuable things about engineering along the way...things worth remembering for the future. Things that will remind me to think outside the box. The poses have been fun, but what I've enjoyed the most is the freedom I've been given throughout these 4 years...to design TF characters not only the way I want to, but to engineer them the way I want. I mean, for Primus's Love, I even made a MOVIE with these little guys! Imagine the possibilities that opens up! I feel the congratulations goes to each and everyone of you that supported me on this incredible journey. I have had the time of my life. See you all in the not-too distant future.

    And of course...Till All Are One.
