    Wow, that is an amazing job and spot on for one of the most iconic Transformers covers. You should definitely take a stab at another one!

    Your WIP shots especially show how much a coat of paint would have helped this guy tremendously. It also shows that I'd be pretty into any color differential re-releases.

    I can't even express how much joy seeing this made me feel today. Just stunning. Even nailing the outer leg details, he looks like he stepped from the comic cover. I hope this makes it into the hands of a very appreciative collector.

    Again, thank you everyone for the kind words!

    @Dormamu- sometimes when I do projects like these, or even more personal projects like my Cyberverse Beast Wars (gonna be working on those resculpts forever...), I do hope people get some kind of enjoyment out of what's shown. Your comment really made me feel good about the work that went into this piece. Thanks!

    Well, sometimes it isn't about what you make on a custom, but what you actually get out of making it.

    Very well done. I almost made something like this for myself. I am glad to see someone actually did it.

    This is probably one of my favorite repaints. I'm normally not a fan of cell shading paint jobs, but with the backdrop and everything it totally works on this one! I could see this concept being used for a convention exclusive or something. Phenomenal work!

    Yeah that is absolutely amazing. The lanky, dark purple, and scary Shockwave is what I wanted the Masterpiece to be (I know it will happen one day).

    I didn't realize that first image was the custom until I scrolled down and saw the different angle pics. Fantastic! I love how you paid attention to mimicking Sienkiewicz's color schemes and touches like the airbrushed gleam and inked brushwork on the legs for instance. It's that attn to detail that makes it so awesome and makes one do a double take.
