    After collecting energon samples from the Autobots, Shockwave began creating evil clones with massive power.

    the first of these were motormaster, the leader of the Group.

    It looks slick, but you might want to clean up some of the paint apps like the windows. Other than that, keep going!

    more cons

    so, next in the group is Wild-Rider.
    I was not able to find a suitable carmod for HER, so I decided to go for the arcee-mold.

    Only one more you need to do.

    (Because toys of Prime Breakdown and Dead End already exist)

    Yeah, that would be cool. But it Wold be more bay-like to add bruticus.


    With breackdown i thought that it would be Nice to make a G1 accurate versjon, since the original does not fit With the stunticons.

    That's a very awesome concept, of the Stunticons being clones of the Autobots. One that I fully support. :D

    drag-racing

    the last (for now) in the team is Dragstrip.
    he is made out of the dead-end mold becuse the wheeljack head does not work With these colors.

    as dead-end is not yet Complete, the NeXT update will feature some prototype combine modes.

    these are turning out sick!!!!

    if i may,when you go to do the paint edging/fine detail lines,try using low-tack masking tape and make sure to press your edges down.
    there's even a product called "3m trimline tape which comes in a roll and is 1/4" wide so it's the cats @$$ at bending around curves like the blue on the fenders of the breakdown you did.

    short of that,sometimes if you can get the last two fingers of your painting hand to rest on the piece at the same time you're painting,your lines will come out cleaner as you'll notice how much more steady your hand will be.

    dragstrip looks sweet as heck,though just seems to need a bit more purple to help break up the yellow some more.possibly the upper thighs and maybe in the front of the arms above the elbows where the original color still kinda bleeds through the new yellow.

    wildrider...wow,love the mold choice and the color combo/placement.

    Looks like you're using cheap paint. It's got a weird flat/dusty finish to it, and it builds up creating an uneven and bumpy surface. I'd suggest getting some Tamiya, Model Master, or Games Workshop paints, and invest in some nicer brushes of various sizes. Also, take the time to disassemble your figures, and properly prep them by removing the mold release by wiping them down with windex, or soaking in hot water and dish soap. Shave down areas where you get paint rub, and mask the areas that are more difficult to paint for cleaner lines. Base coating the figure with flat gray, or black will help you get proper adhesion with your paint.

    I think your idea is solid, you just need to practice your execution.

    Oh man, THIS is the advice I needed last month when I was finishing up my custom project! (ironically, they too were Stunticons) :) 

    Great, I'll be sure to try these things out next time.

    Nice work
    i realy like the bio
    ps if you ever do a similar project again,you could try some mild part swaping (heads,hands or weapons ) between the figurew to diferentiate them from the originals

    Yeah I considered to use foc grimlocks head for motormaster, but it does not fit in truckmode. I am however going to use that for menasor.
