Buzzclaw by Unicron9
Another basic (scout) class Beast Wars Fuzor. As usual I wanted to keep the character's colors intact, including the tropical feel with some translucent orange parts, but with Buzzclaw I also wanted to make it more obvious what was mantis and what was lizard. The original color placements had it all mixed up but the textures on the mold tell what should be what. He really is more of a blend of the 2 critters than Fuzors normally are, but basically the bottom half is lizard and the top is mantis with some mixed bits here and there.
Sky Shadow by Unicron9
Sky Shadow
Another Beast Wars figure I always saw potential in so he got the usual darker, more realistic, and detailed repaint that sticks generally to his original color scheme.
Sky Shadow is a Fuzor mix of a dragonfly and an iguana.

I used reference pictures of real green dart dragonflies and various iguanas.
Predabiel Shoes by Unicron9
Predabiel Shoes
I finally got around to sculpting some shoes onto my Jessica Predator girl 1/6 scale figure. The 2 pairs of heels I bought that supposedly fit these newest Phicen seamless body feet really didn't fit well at all and sure didn't let her stand on her own, so with no base shoes to sculpt over I had to sculpt directly onto her feet. It took about 16 hours of sculpting a new layer onto them ever 2 hours, then the painting.

Now she has some semi-predator-like matching alien high heels on that are hopefully just sporty enough to work with the overall athletic warrior gal look.
She does now stand on her own too! But I'm not going to risk displaying such an expensive figure without a stand.
Classics BM Jetstorm by Unicron9
Classics BM Jetstorm
Aaaand the last of the vehicon generals Ive been doing (boss did his own Tankor from Gen Roadbuster), this is Jetstorm.
Classics BM Thrust by Unicron9
Classics BM Thrust
Another one of the Beast Machines vehicon generals reimagined, this is Thrust.

After working all night I wanted to get him wrapped up and posted before I crashed and was in a bit of a hurry at the end. You might notice some areas that needed touch ups, which I did before shipping to the boss who commissioned him. :)

Base figure was ROTF Chromia- a true piece of shit figure I had previously believed was useless.

Personal Quote: I had life all figured out for a minute, but then I forgot what I was thinking.
I know I have said this before, but it really annoys the hell out of me how just a couple of hours after the news of a famous person's death hits, all these people start whipping up whatever quick, shitty pic they can to get recognition by riding the trending news of that star's death. You see googled photos with a few lame unoriginal words, sketches that must have taken all of 20 minutes, and speed paintings meant to trigger more of the sad feelings we already have after hearing of a loss.
To me it just looks like jackasses trying to say "FIRST!!" with barely inspired crap just for attention that is poorly disguised as a sympathetic tribute.

It happens every time. Just watch. Someone famous passes and Deviantart gets flooded with shitty art. I know some of the pics are by true fans who are deeply hurt, but I think most of it is just bandwagon hopping. I hereby dub this shit "Vulture art". Artists feeding off the dead for hits while the news is big...

I was thinking bout the whole Bay thing, And I forgot to provide a counter example for the Transformers movies, If you (want) to see a HORRIBLE Transformers movie, Transformers Prime Predacons Rising is the one I can recommend.

Thx as always for your time and keep up the great customs!

Hah I actually thought that was pretty cool.
SlanderOptim7th Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
They ruined Megatron there.... that's what killed it for me.....
but at least they kept that wanna bee Blackarachnia out of it.... so thats one solace I could take from it.

Of course, to each his own.

Hey, do you do custom re-shells?
Unicron9 Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
Hmmm... Kinda, but I havent actually been commissioned to do any so I don't think ive ever done just a full on re-shell.
PunchieTheNeko Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2014  Student Filmographer
What if it were taking the vehicle mode parts from one Transformer and putting them on the robot bits of another Transformer?
Unicron9 Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
Sounds potentially much harder even than a re-shell using a model.
