    Update: November 17, 2012

    In a similar fashion as the threads to my Weapons of the Secession series, I want to start a new thread here showcasing photos of the physical prints of my Out of Ammo melee models. There's going to be little words, lots of pictures so have fun and enjoy yourselves!



    Aucepic Anlace

    [​IMG]

    A nice, handy short sword for smaller deluxe figures. The large clean blade is great for
    capturing light and glowing. FYI, the name was inspired by a great suggestion from Mr Beane.
    Thanks James!



    Cybersonic Scimitar

    [​IMG]

    This one is slightly longer than it's honest and down to earth aucepic cousin, so it can
    fit most standard sized deluxe figures. I'm pretty happy with how the blade turned out too.
    Looks vicious!



    Voltech Verger

    [​IMG]

    This one was really hard to design for as there was almost no resource online
    I can reference from. I had to take a whole bunch of screenshots while wildly
    swinging the weapon just to get the details I need.
    It looks like a turkey leg. I'm hungry.



    Betrabludger

    [​IMG]

    Admittedly, I was not a fan of how the clubs (Voltech Verger and this) look, but
    after having Shockwave wield it the aesthetics all started to make sense to me now and I like it!
    The spikes chip easy so be careful.



    Siesmite Sledgeslammer

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It was really gratifying to do this model, as I managed to work out a nice locking
    mechanism so that the components hold themselves together securely with just a simple twist.
    And I love seeing hammers on TFs. We need more hammers!



    Piezopernach

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately, Brawl ended up being too small to wield the weapon he was meant for :( 
    Name is inspired by a suggestion from Mr. Good. Thanks Marcus!



    Galactic Dichotomizer

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Shown here is version 2.0 of the Dichotomizer, and it is nearly twice as large as the first and very much compatible in size to the Megamace. Shown here are the energized versions of the blades done in FUD.



    Cybernetic Craniocleaver

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Vicious, vicious, vicious! That's all I can say...



    MegaBludgeon

    [​IMG]

    A nifty little mace. Not as crazy spikey as the Megamace,
    but it looks murderous in its subtle, understated way.



    The Gyroguillotine

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    EVERYONE needs a nice, hefty longsword to carry around. :3



    The MegaBlade

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I guess to many people (myself included) this is the flagship model of the series.
    It sure was a complex model to build and it took me several tries to get right, but
    oh the results are great!

    I was pretty proud of how the light piping effect was pulled off, with bits of clear
    peeping through the whole length of the sword.

    Galactic Dichotomizer is next on my list and the Aucepic Anlace is primed for my Rodimus custom.

    I just got the HFTD deluxe Whirl weapons in the mail yesterday. I used them for my 07 Voyager Megatron because the hands he comes with are utter $#!t.

    Man, that Axe Prime WFC Prime is holding is just amazing. The sword FOC Prime has is just hateful! Epic work man.

    Holy crap these are great!

    These got me to thinking... would it be possible to make 1-3 piece versions of the Armada/Energon micron weapons? I know Takara released a 1 piece Energon Saber for Kicker during Energon. But could you make similar styled versions of all the micron weapons like the Starsaber, Requiem Blaster, and Skyboom Sheild and even make a repro of the Energon Saber?

    I think frosted detail would do wonders for them. :D

    Hi reluttr,

    Do you mean to create repros of the originals or adapted versions? Unfortunately I avoid doing repros for many reasons...Adaptations are possible though.

    Ariel, are you planning on doing Megatron's Dark Star Saber? I want to know before I invest in Darkness Megatron just for Hades.

    This blade is beyond sick and will be even more killer if they ever release foc megatron! Will you be possibly making the optimus sword from foc as well to go along with this megablade?

    Hi TRADINGPIECES,

    I'm afraid not as Optimus' blade comes with the retail release of FOC Sentinel Prime. I avoid doing repros as much as possible...

    Damn that is too bad! Yeah i have the sword that came with foc ultra magnus and have prime using it instead but it is just not up to par and those shield and sword sets that just came out are like over 40 bucks a pop! I love your designs and look forward to future designs!
