Prism by Unicron9
Commissioned custom figure of an original character created by the customer for the Beast Wars universe.
Slugfest by Unicron9
Commission to repaint AoE Snarl into G1 Slugfest with a robot mode.

I swear my camera is actually getting crappier... Really gotta get a new one.
Blindside Cybertron Form by Unicron9
Blindside Cybertron Form
As the title says, this is the cybertronian form of the Beast wars chameleon custom I did recently.
Beast Wars Blindside by Unicron9
Beast Wars Blindside
An original character idea from my buddy Boojigg3r here at DA.

To make him, he sent me a BW Snarl figure to shave down to nothing and resculpt into a chameleon.
Terminus by Unicron9
Made from a Marvel Legends Spider-man 2099 base figure and lots of sculpting, this is another one of my own original characters I made up for my Cybernals storyline as a teenager. This time it is the main bad-guy, the racist alien warlord Terminus.

This butthole conquered several planets and had his sights on Earth next. He was one of the usual little gray aliens with big black eyes until he modified his own body over hundreds of years to be this tough human sized fella.
He needs the mask to breathe well and cover his ugly. His gauntlets were stolen from a world he enslaved and they can warp any item from his home weapon vault into his hands.

I have figures of the 3 main characters and the leader of the renegade cybernals made, so I figured I might as well make the main villain.

Actual cheesy bad 90s art of him I did included.

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...

Just curious, have you found any ways to improve RID deluxe Strongarm yet? I'm looking at mine and I'm basically stumped about what I should do with mine.
Unicron9 Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2015  Professional Artisan Crafter
I haven't had any of the RID figures in hand actually. To me it is barely a step up from Rescue Bots, so either I'm finally growing out of Transformers at near 40, or that show is about the equivalent of Armada, Energon, Cybertron, and the first RID series, none of which I could make myself watch...
My kids like it though. They like Justin Bieber Sideswipe.

I kind of get the feeling. Strongarm's the only figure I'll be getting from this line. As for the show, I neither like it that much, but I don't hate it, either. To me there's no real reason this couldn't have just been its own series aside from Optimus' force ghost.

Btw, I swear 1-step Sideswipe just looks like a slab of red plastic pretending to be a car.

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.
