    The more I mess around with Berserker, the more I find myself loving him. Even though I am absolutely repulsed by his retools of Crankcase and Crowbar from SS, and I think I know why. Berserky carries a sort of an animalistic elegance that the other two lacked. The way his feral demeanor is juxtaposed by the calm sleekness that his silhouette and poseability offer illustrates a figure that is capable of being a hunchbacked monster but chooses not too. Even the cudgels he has seems almost quaint in his hands. Where Crowbar and Crankcase double down on the whole rabid dog looks without any sort of implied character to go with it.

    With that said, his movie version still sucks. Funnily, although he continues to be a tabbing mess in his car mode, my copy seems to hold together pretty well, even the panels line decently. I guess I got lucky? o_O 

    EDIT: Wait nevermind. Truck mode Berserker is still a douchebag.

    If you're interested, there's a shapeways kit that replaces with normal longer wings and filler parts if you want to get rid of the ice crap. There's so much detail hidden under all it

    If by "basic and bland", you mean "fun and dynamic", then sure. :p

    Cool! You can also de-ice him to look better. They’re held by screws, so you won’t have to worry about permanent alterations. Only downside though, is that it leaves a giant hole in his chest.

    I am nearing completion of my custom Action master SSBBOP. Probably going to stick some articulated hands on him and clip off any not needed hinges. But I like where he’s at right now. I actually had to put him away for a bit because I wasn’t happy. Now I’m good. New feet and new hands would make all the difference to make him perfect. Anyway enjoy and cheers!

    I've been wanting this guy in my Decepticon army for a long time. I'm very pleased to announce that he's finally done!

    Got a second Dr Wu gun for SS Prime. They look so much better then the Hasbro one, both paint and size. Only thing is a wish they were made to be left and right.

    They are fun!! I went as far as paying over retail price for every First Edition Autobot. But aesthetically speaking, they're a mismatch.

    You know, he doesn't look bad and I think he'd look better without the ice parts like you said. But a SS 2007 Megatron would be a lot nicer. I really want to see the difference in engineering. A voyager figure from 2007 and a voyager figure from 20??. I'd love to see them compared.
    Excellent work! I checked out the thread on the Radicons custom and it's really impressive. I love the small Christmas lights too. :p

    If you mean scale wise, then maybe. I haven't compared TFP Ratchet to Beetlebee, but detail wise, they're off.

    But if you like, then by all means bro!! I wasn't knocking on your likes or opinion, I just putting in my two cents.
