    Wow. Great digibash/ great idea too. I didnt really like the changes they nade to the wings in robot mode for this legacy armada Starscream design. I didnt even realize how perfect it is for the cyberjets

    Love this. Just add a more feminine headsculpt with thinner arms and rounded thoughts and she would be a hit!

    Huh… it’s been a long while since I’ve posted to this thread. Done a fair few digibashes since then, but… would you rather I post them all at once, or one at a time?

    Alright, you asked for it, time for a digibash dump!
    5A8004EC-FADA-4628-8061-6142F363B147.jpeg
    Sol Badguy (I was originally going to do a pair of Guilty Gear themed Digibashes to match the Fatal Fury/Tekken ones, but after Sol took longer than Heihachi and Kazuya combined that plan was scrapped.)
    D4110146-9A05-4B88-9B03-14C99391FF04.jpeg
    Legacy Animated Universe Starscream (This was made before Prowl was revealed, when I was utterly hopeless that Animated would get any kind of rep in Legacy whatsoever. How wrong I was!)
    86741692-D44D-4CB7-8541-8DE542B98678.jpeg Generation 1 Actionmaster Rollout (I was looking for a digibash to do from Scraphook, and was shocked by how many of the details on my favorite forgotten Autobot disaster lined up with his.)
    36F913A4-1F53-4ED6-87D3-74B4D1C288A8.jpeg
    Legacy G1 Sky Quake (because I’m a huge fan of G1 Sky Quake who went NUTS when it turned out Legacy Prime Sky Quake took inspiration from his design)
    42024831-202C-4C2B-A34D-05DB8D0C3196.jpeg
    Rise of the Beasts Nightbird… 2! (Okay I’m not sure how much of a digibash this one counts as, but I took the mainline Rise of the Beasts Deluxe Nightbird and redid the colors to be what I expect the final movie design to look like.)
    5D139EE3-F42C-4950-82E2-2E534FB7A27B.jpeg
    Legacy “Cloud Universe” Starscream (What began as a petty attempt at a digibash swerved into an homage to Cloud by making Starscream from the Blitzwing mold, and I’m shocked by how well it worked!)
    1150BDFC-FF7A-4200-819C-578E708A8ADF.jpeg
    Legacy Rust Dust (because why do an actual Animated Prowl repaint when you can reference an obscure Generations-original character? I love those. A lot.)
    A54E6217-7DFD-4050-AFB1-6331B6FE9B2C.jpeg
    Slipstream from Legacy Jihaxus (The end result of said petty digibashing, and my far-too-late noticing of the similarities between Jihaxus’s design and the Seekers’ design. Kinda shocked it ended up working remotely as well as it does.

    Also, as a bonus, probably the most obscure digibash I’ve ever done, here’s one of the D+D Dicelings (the Black Dragon specifically) done up in a deco that references two very specific shots from two singular episodes of the TV show Amphibia!
    8A554A81-BEAB-4BB5-AC81-5798C5681BDB.jpeg
    Specifically, the dragon mode references this shot from All In:
    A00D6998-7843-4FD6-A216-EA6092F24623.jpeg
    3B3A8C61-6B01-4D2F-8101-F3DB2FF1784F.jpeg
    And the D20 mode is a reference to the D20 from the episode Froggy Little Christmas!
    E65A7EAD-1A36-4664-81A8-F02FD0B71C46.jpeg (yeah in case it wasn’t obvious I have a massive and probably unhealthy obsession with this show but this isn’t the place for that so just enjoy the digibashes)

    And… that’s it so far! I’ll post more digibashes as I make them, but for now, these are the ones I’ve done! Hope you enjoy at least most of them!

    And while I’m working on another large project, take this one I did yesterday: Legacy Armada Prime into Super Gobots Staks!

    1CA6A375-FB8C-4B36-91B6-6BE33CEE70D9.jpeg
    I’ve got too many Optimus Primes, but maybe a custom like this could convince me to buy this figure… he looks so good…

    The original Staks, for reference!

    Using his garbage truck mode to smuggle Energon across Cybertron, Predacon Gnashteeth works his way up through the criminal underworld!
    A5B76341-97D5-4321-BF6E-817DEA223004.jpeg
    Been a while since I’ve done a digibash, but once I saw Trashmaster’s claw attached to his right arm, the inspiration struck me like… well, a truck. I think it works really well for a pre-Beast Beast Wars Megatron!

    Been a while, huh? Well, in any case, here’s another attempt at a Legacy Animated Universe Lockdown digibash, this time from the Axlegrease mold because… I mean, come on, it’s like it was made to be Lockdown.
    Lockdown.png
    Tried incorporating details of both the animation model and original toy, since something I thought was really cool about Animated Prowl was how the shoulders referenced the original toy’s ball joint indents. Thoughts?
