Sept 11 2010 Update Custom WIP Bruticus upgrade set page 5 post #45
I used to create custom figures for heroclix and gijoe, this past year I have just started to get in to customizing transformers for my collection. I'm not the best painter by any means, but I think they look good enough for my shelf, lol.
Instead of posting a bunch of threads for each custom, I think I'll just post all my work in this thread.

To start things off I post some pics of a figure I have been working on for a little while. I don't think I'll get the real deal because I have no intention on spending $1000 for a figure...my wife would kill me, lol.
Here is a WIP of one of my favourite figures:

Fortress Maximus WIP
Body:
-Transformers Cybertron Metroplex that cost me $12.00 US (15 CAN) on ebay.
painting it to resemble The G1 toy of Fort Max

Head:
-Used the face of an old G1 Metroplex's head that I
found in a bag of broken TFs at value village.
-For spike I used an old headmaster Duros from the
same value village bag
-Spikes arms are from a broken micromaster Spaceshot figure
and his legs are from an extra "star saber" minicon figure from armada.
-built up the heads structure with vinal siding
scraps, painting spike to resemble G1 counterpart.
(decided to go with spike instead of Cerebros
because I was a fan of the Marvel comics and cerebros was pretty incosequential in them)
-Head mount made from parts from the wrecking ball from an old C.O.P.S criminal figure. (they were like 7 inch GIJOEs)

Guns:
-forearm mounted blasters care of The Visions
sidekick (bug) figure from the long dead "avengers
animated series) painted them red. I would have
prefered the guns to be on the top of the forearm
but a minicon port there would not work in vehicle
or base mode. I'll have to make due.
-leg mounted cannons is a busted gun from that
same bag of goodies (originally from micromaster
figure Roughstuff's trailer) barrels painted red.

More work needed, still other projects in the works
-targermaster Galvatron (made from universe
Cyclonus' Nightstick)
-My own Superion add on kit
-Animated shockwave's hand blaster
(looking like action master shockwave's blaster)
-KO classic voyager Megatron to resemble the
"All hail Megatron version"

Re: Matrix_Holders custom corner

Thanks Hobbyist Prime. Took me a while to cut all those pieces of plastic to the right length. Working with things that small is frustrating at times. Spike is still to back heavy to stand by himself, I need to add some type of heel to stabilize him.
I can't decide if I want to keep his paint app detailing basic like his G1 counterpart or make For Max more detailed like in frenzy_rumble's version.

Re: Matrix_Holders custom corner

cool!i think your version is the first fort max i've seen from cybertron metroplex that has the green chest chunk ala g1.it helps it stand out from the other versions floating around.nice touchi also like what you did with the g1 metroplex headit turned out really well and fits in nicely!!

Re: Matrix_Holders custom corner

thanks for the encouraging words. this is going to be a long project... I have so many going on at the same time...hard to keep at on at a time because there are too many ideas brewing and want to get to work on them, lol. I am also working on a stuntacon set based on the bruticus maximus and superion sets. 'I work 12 hour days, not enough time to get all my ideas started.
