Generations Skylynx Version 3 by Unicron9
Generations Skylynx Version 3
A third version of my generations Skylynx build from a few years back, but this time as a commission where the customer wanted loads of little wacky changes I don't even fully understand.
I think it did come out looking pretty cool for a Skylynx with a grapple gun on a string, extra parts only for certain modes, and mini-minions. :)

My Nerd Displays 2015 by Unicron9
My Nerd Displays 2015
Another year, another bunch of pics of the figure displays I have out around the house. Mostly my stuff but my wife has some contributions in there too. Might look like a lot of toys around the house but this is a sad fraction of what just sits rotting in boxes...
Going to keep selling things I can slightly live without on ebay for a while I suppose. I just put most of my FoC custom figures up yesterday.

Jenny Quick by Unicron9
Jenny Quick
Custom anime style version of Jynic from my Cybernals stories in her human alter-ego disguise, known as "Jenny Quick", the world UCF champion.
I bought the base figure (an Ikki Tousen girl) years ago because I liked the long legged mid-kick pose. Always thought the removable dress thing was dumb but it sure helped make this custom easier. I cut the dress in half to make her top.
I also had to resculpt her mouth because the happy one-fang kitty look did NOT fit Jyn at all.

I swear my camera is actually getting crappier... Really gotta get a new one.

Interests
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...

do you think it would be cool to make an overlord custom out of armada/energon tidalwave?

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.

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!

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.

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.
