    Thanks! I was thinking about chopping her up so she can't transform, since that would probably kill her....

    ^That's an odd sentence in so many ways

    the eyes were the hardest part. I never mixed paint for flesh tones before-- it dries fast.

    I'm glad you like it. I wish some of the IDW comics representations were better-- I'd have been stoked for a voyager or leader class Bomber Megatron.

    anyways, I'm trying to get out of the collecting game. That goes the same for customizing.

    Oh wow, that's really sharp.

    Are these as widely available as cheaply as they used to be? You could pick up a loose E-Arcee with no accessories for a couple bucks at one point.

    Slap some different arms on there, pull off the cycle bits, you're most of the way there.

    Cool!

    Yeah Energon Arcee is pretty easy to get on ebay, complete or otherwise. Usually for about 30 bucks complete and loose. I'm just not very versed at customizing yet. I've only done weapons up to this point. But hey gotta start somewhere right. I can order some Wrecker Brands too. Wonder what I could do for arms....

    I got a lot to do, looking for a Blitzwing atm to do up like an Autobot as well. He'll be based off that G1 S3 episode where he defects and Rodimus offers him a place in the Autobot ranks.

    That's a pretty neat idea!
    I happen to have an Energon Arcee lying around that I've been wondering what to do with.
    Thanks for the idea!

    I found one for $5 on ebay last year around April-ish. Haven't checked lately. Looking at it now, I wish I had painted the exhaust pipes silver. The white arms and white exhaust gets visually confusing to me.

    You know, looking between your custom and that artwork, I'm seriously wondering if her exo suit was actually based on that Arcee as even without the customisations you've done it looks very similarly shaped. Great work :thumb  Weirdly I thought I had commented on this before but apparently not. I might be thinking of the person who customised a Siege Battlemaster into Verity's suit.

    Hmm I'm gonna need to get this Arcee (or one of the mold mates) :D
