    Presenting my take on Tarn if he was in Titans Return. Not the best paint job ive ever done but im ok with it. Made from RID Autobot Blastway, TR Crash Bash and Trentulus' Tarn faceplate available here.
    Tarn Faceplate (Titans Return-Compatible) by TrentTroop on Shapeways

    Bio : Tarn is the definition of a Deception Loyalist. His only goal is to move the cause forward by the most destructive means necessary. He went so far into this that he forced the brutal and painful alteration of his Titan Master partner so that his face when they combine would be that of the Decepticon Insignia. Rarely does he transform and allow his partner to disengage. He used fear to ensure that his ways of doing things are not hindered by his partners ambitions. He has promised Lord Megatron that he will go to any length to ensure that Fortress Maximus becomes the next casualty of war.

    Bio: Mar was desperately trying to survive when the battle of the titans broke out. He simply wanted to live his own life. Volrath and Kreb had other ideas and captured him before presenting him to Megatron. Megatron learned that Mar could give any transformer that bonded with him the ability to locate anyone they focused on by channeling their spark. He decided this ability would be useful to Tarn in the hunt for Autobots and the other Titan Masters. Now Mar is forced into the service of Tarn and hopes one day that Fortress Maximus and Emissary will free him. When he is not serving in head mode, he is kept in the turret mount that Tarn uses to blast Autobots. Energy locks keep him in place in case he gets the guts to try and leave. 20170128_145231.jpg 20170128_145234.jpg 20170128_145231.jpg 20170128_145234.jpg 20170128_145243.jpg 20170128_145609.jpg 20170128_145633.jpg 20170128_145637.jpg 20170128_145231.jpg 20170128_145234.jpg 20170128_145243.jpg 20170128_145609.jpg 20170128_145633.jpg 20170128_145637.jpg 20170128_145742.jpg 20170128_145231.jpg 20170128_145234.jpg 20170128_145243.jpg 20170128_145609.jpg 20170128_145633.jpg 20170128_145637.jpg 20170128_145742.jpg

    Pretty slick use of this mold. Could use another coat of paint tho to shore up those colours, but still, nice idea overall.

    Also: PARKS & REC! lol
