    I was literally just thinking about this idea this morning. Great to see it executed so masterfully by yourself. I really want a Generations Strongarm :(

    This is fantastic. I just wish there was an existing headsculpt you could've used and modified into Strongarm. Namely one with a nose. Haha

    Nice.
    I've been thinking of repaint/tooling a Combiner Wars Prowl into her. I want a custom Fembot combiner using existing characters.

    I keep coming back to this. It's brilliantly executed and seems stupidly obvious how perfect it is for the Hound mold. This needs to be an official Earthrise redeco. I would preorder this immediately, even as a Selects. Why don't you want my money, Hasbro?

    SWEET SOLUS PRIME! that works WAY too well!

    amazing custom, very well done. I love the layout of colours you gave her. Really makes her pop!

    I’d love to get more non-G1 characters incorporated into the Generations line. If this were official, I’d buy it in a heartbeat. (Wink wink Hasbro)
    I normally only buy a mold once, and already caved and bought Hound AND Hot Shot (since he looked good in this mold too) but I’d still have to get a Strongarm made from this mold too if I could.

    Toy shops round my parts opened up after several months of Lockdown closure. Ran to go see if the had a Hound lying around cos I've been dying to try do a custom inspired by this myself.

    So exited! Thanks for the awsome inspiration.

    with netflix siege figures hitting walmart, Hound is a lot more easily found again. I have seen a total of 9 peg warming my 3 walmarts. One store alone had 5...not counting the actual siege figure release.

    My country gets extremely limited access to Transformers and certainly no exclusives. It's a very bad market for them.

    I tried my hand at OP’s custom. Thanks for the inspiration. She is definitely in the forefront of my shelf. I still need to find a roof for her, but for now she is done.

    You did a fantastic job! Seriously tempted to try this myself... just wish Hasbro would put one out in Selects :)
