    It's me, Jin Saotome of http://www.jinsaotomesdangeroustoys.com/ I'm always on TNI so I figured, heck, why not here too seeing as I'm a big Transformers fan?

  1. Some kinds of plastics are extremely resistant to paint no matter what you do. These are usually toughened waxy plastics/superhard plastics like polyoxymethylene that make up parts of a figure that could easily be stressed if made from the usual pvc or abs. The limbs of the Transformers Siege Battle Masters are made of this stuff and you need to color them, so what do you do? It's RIT DyeMore for synthetics to the rescue! Mix half the bottle of dye with a cup or so of water, boil the liquid on med to high heat just so you get a gentle rolling boil and drop your parts in. I like to suspend mine
  2. This week I've created Skywarp in Bumblebee-movie-syle similar to the Starscream I made earlier. The body is a Nitro Zeus/KSI Boss mold and a Shapeways shop Ariel's Customs Seeker faceplate on a Titans Return headmaster. I shortened the kneeplates, added toes, and swapped out the neck gatling guns/wrist cannon for different blaster tips to differentiate him from Starscream. Skywarp was primered with Bulldog (or Duplicolor) Automotive Adhesion Promoter, painted with Testors Metalizer and Aztek Airbrush paints, and sealed with Mr Hobby Premium flat/gloss spray sealer for a factory finished look.
  3. Many years ago I created a Cop-Out custom and after finding another Dirt Boss decided to give it another go! This time I preserved the exhaust-flip feature and used a Combiner Wars Rook head. Cop Out was primered with Bulldog Adhesion Promoter, painted with gloss lacquer, and Testors Metalizer metallics. He comes with a blaster, baton, and yes his lights flash like my original one! You can pop off his chest and switch the lights to on for a nifty red/blue flashing effect just like a real police car. For more flashy pics hit up his page here: Custom Transformers Cop-Out
  4. Ready for something really unique? Here's a Transformers/Marvel Legends Crossover Bludgeon! He was created using the Silver Samurai body and heavily modded helmet, Ghost Rider head, War Machine armor/forearms, TF Hoist shoulder for the backpack, Overwatch Reaper legs, KO TF Scrapper top for the shield, and some fodder parts. Bludgeon was primered with Bulldog Adhesion Promoter, sculpted sections using Aves Fixit Sculpt, hand painted, airbrushed metallic armor effects, and sealed with Mr Hobby premium Matte. His eyes are glass reflective and he has a 5mm port in his left arm. For more pics
  5. He's finished, a Siege style Vehicon based off the Decepticon Brute/Drone from War for Cybertron game. Vehicon was made from an upscaled Sideswipe KO, modded Dinobot ConstructBots Strafe head, and some movie Hound weapons. He was primered with Bulldog Adhesion promoter and painted using Tamiya/Testors lacquers and neon paint detailing that shows up great under a black light. Vehicon's paint job is metallic black with Mr Hobby premium gloss sealer. For more pics head to his page here: Custom Vehicon, voyager scale
  6. It's a gun! It's a plane! It's a tank! It's MEGATRON! Ok this time he's a tank and here I'm bringing him to you in oversized voyager scale as you remember him in the G2 toyline. Megatron was created using a 7.5" Wei Jiang scaled up voyager Hardhead. The metal chest panel was removed and sculpted over as was the M on his waist and a voyager Megatron face grafted onto the headmaster. A classic G2 paint scheme was achieved by airbrushing on a base of green followed by purple camo, then weathered, detailed, and finally sealed. Now you can have a voyager scale G2 Megatron to battle your Voyager Pot
  7. The Diaclone toy series were the precursors to Transformers and from them spawned the characters we all know and love with Optimus Prime leading the Autobots. Here I've taken a Combiner Wars Optimus Prime and given him a new Construct-Bots head and paint job reminiscent of the vintage Diaclone Prime. Modding the Combiner torso's head with Crosshair's pistols I was able to turn it into a homage to the Diaclone Ultra Magnus. Now you can add your own limbs to create a brand new Combiner Wars bot! For more pictures head to his page here: Diaclone Optimus Prime
  8. The Stunticons are a crazy bunch of Decepticons that love to wreck it on the road. Here's Wildrider, the gunmetal-black colored muscle car. Since there really aren't combiners in the movies he's a standalone character created from the new AoE Bumblebee, FOC Roadbuster arms, and Dropkick head. He was given an alternate chest/arm transformation and nifty clear red windows. Ready form some Decepticon action? Wildrider is at your service. More pics here---> Custom Transformers Wildriderl
  9. Part of the Wreckers team, Guzzle is a hefty little tank ready to tread upon the Decepticons in the heat of battle! Here I've created a custom Transformers Generations Guzzle using a deluxe 2-pack Megatron body, movie Dreadwing legs as arms similar to how I did my old Warpath, movie Gears head, and a Cyberverse size Megatron for cannon and hand-inserts. Guzzle has a detachable shield now and comes equipped with a blaster to take on anything that comes his way.

  10. Rumbling towards battle comes the powerful Decepticon Bruticus! This time he's been re imagined in the Age of Extinction style instead of his usual combiner form seeing as Brawl bit it in the first movie anyway. Bruticus was made from the incredibly versatile Hound voyager mold, modded Dead End head, and some extra fodder bits. His hand-guards were made to be detachable and his entire body hand painted and weathered for a military look including his weapons. This Bruticus is ready to take on the entire Autobot team now! More pics here---> AoE Bruticus
  11. He's big, he's bad, he's Autobot Big Daddy! This powerful bot needed a good muscle car base so I used a First Edition Cliffjumper as the mold. Various sections of the waist have been changed and the front bumper modded so it folds backwards instead of ending up in front giving the character a different look. An Armada Wheeljack head was used and Big Daddy given a metallic black flake look using Testors one coat lacquer. Add some flames and a hood blower in, Big Daddy is ready to roll out! More pics here---> Big Daddy ----------------------------------------------------------
  12. The leader of the Autobots returns and, wait, this isn't Optimus Prime! This is NEMESIS PRIME! No longer straight movie style I've gone and given this custom Transformers Nemesis Prime a classic look that I wish they had rebooted the Transformers movie franchise into. An Evasion Mode voyager Prime was used for the main body, a new grille and chest windows were added thanks to a Kaiyodo pvc Optimus Prime bust, and the new head is from the Construct-Bots figure using a double jointed neck. Nemesis Prime has new hands and even new feet with piston details! Minicon parts were used for removable sm
  13. They always say two heads are better than one and this custom Beast Wars Megatron figure proves it! I used a Transformers Age of Extinction Scorn for the base body and a Megabolt head for the transformation. The body had to be primered with Bulldog Adhesion promoter because of the different kinds of plastic and rubber. I was surprised how well the mold works for Megatron and gave it a nice detailed paint job befitting the leader of the Predacons! More pictures here---> Beast Wars Megatron custom figure
  14. He's a big, bipedal Dinobot stomping his way through the Decepticon forces. It's not Grimlock, it's the original Dinobot! Here this custom Beast Wars Dinobot figure is recreated in the Age of Extinction movie style using the Voyager Grimlock figure as the base and a Generations Dinobot head. Various sections were removed/resculpted to round out his mold including repositioning the forearms and adding Raptor claw like toes. Complete with a classic striped and bone-detailed paint job Dinobot is ready to fight with HONOR! More pics here---> Custom Dinobot ----------------------
