Beast Wars Season 1

Postby xyl360 » Sun Oct 23, 2011 6:41 pm

Here's some pics of my season 1 collection of Beast Wars figures, most of which have some custom paint apps and some of which have some mods.

Here's best buds Rattrap and Dinobot. For Rattrap, I did some minor paint apps, including to his head, gun and beast mode nose and beast mode eyes. For Dinobot, I used Henkei Dinobot and gave him 10th Anniversary Dinobot's sword, which I painted silver.

Here's Cheetor and Optimus Primal. For Cheetor, I used the Telemocha Cheetor with very minor mods to the beast mode head on his chest to make it lay down a bit more flat on his chest to try and replicate his look on the show. For Optimus, he's just Telemocha Optimus Primal with 0 modifications or paint apps.
Image

Here's Rhinox, Tigatron and Airazor. For Rhinox, I used 10th Anniversary Rhinox with the gun from Telemocha Rhinox. I added a bit of clear green paint to change the tone of his bot mode and modified the gun so that he could hold it as he does on the show and so that the spiked-balls on chains would be behind the blade/barrel of the gun as they are on the show and I painted them silver to replicate how they look on the show (I've got a second Telemocha Rhinox on order from ebay so that I can give him a second gun, which I'll modify in the same way, but it hasn't arrived yet). I also painted his robot mode feet black to make them look like the show and removed his kibble and have it attached differently on his back. For Tigatron, I did some minor paint apps to his head and slightly modified his beast mode had to try and get it to sit a bit more flat on his chest as it does on the show. For Airazor, I did a bit of paint on her head to replicate her look on the show.
Image

Now for the Predacons. For Megatron, I used the TRU 10th Anniversary Megatron and painted the piece of his arm that resides under his tail black to make it look like his black hand holding the tail. For Scorponok, I removed the black bits around his head, modified the tail so that it stands fully extended instead of being collapsed and I gave him a ton of paint to replicate the his look on the show. I also replaced his Cyber-bee arm with a second missile arm and painted his beast mode head to replicate the look on the show (I may transform him to take a pic, but I'm not sure since I use acrylics, which unfortunately tend to scratch off easily). Behind them you can see a Telemocha Megatron. All I did to him was paint his hands/arms black like on the show.
Image

Waspinator is the 10th Anniversary Waspinator with some paint to make him resemble his look on the show. I also modified his insect legs so that they would look like they do in bot mode on the show by cutting the tips of the legs off and plugging them into the arms.
Image

Here's Terrorsaur and Tarantulas. For Terrorsaur, I kitbashed a Beast Wars Metals Airazor and a basic Terrorsaur figure and did extensive modding/remolding to it and lots of paint so that he would be in scale with his fellow Predacons. For Tarantulas, I did primarily paint and minor remolding of his robot-mode head to replicate his look on the show.
Image

Here's Blackarachnia. I did extensive remolding and modding to her in order to make her look more feminine as she appears on the show and did a bit of paint, including the red hourglass on her head (which the flash on my camera unfortunately conceals pretty well :().
Image

Lastly, Inferno. For him, all I did were paint apps to make him look as he does on the show as much as I could.
Image

Seasons 2 and 3 are still to come (haven't taken the pics yet).

Thanks for looking, and comments are welcome :)!

Here's my pics from seasons 2 :).

Here are Megatron and Tarantulas. No major alterations here, I just did a few paint apps on Megs to make him look more like he did on the show, no alterations to Tarantulas.
Image
Image

Here's Quickstrike and Ravage. I didn't do anything to Quickstrike but I did do quite a bit of extra black paint on Ravage to make him more closely resemble his appearance on the show.
Image

Here's some more pics of Ravage along with pics of Rampage. I did a bit of paint on Rampage to make him look more like he does in the series, including white on the face and purple on the tips of his crab legs. I also put a bit of paint on the tips of his missiles to make them look like they do on the show.
Image
Image
Image

Here's the first of the Maximals from season 2 (excluding the ones that also appear in the same form in season one). I did a bit of paint on Cheetor's chest to make it more yellow instead of gray.
Image

Here's Silverbolt along with Transmutate. I didn't do any mods/paint apps here. This is the darker Hasbro release of Silverbolt which I used because he has typically darker gray look in S2.

And finally on to season 3. For starters, here's Optimal Optimus, Cheetor and Blackarachnia. For Optimus I removed the guns from his chest to attempt to make him look a bit more like he does on the show. I did no mods to Cheetor and I removed the shoulder plates from Blackarachnia (while they are present on the show, they're way too huge on the toy to match her appearance on the show for my taste).
Image

Next up, here's Silverbolt and Depth Charge. I made no alterations to either figure, but I did use the Takara version of Silverbolt this time to match his much lighter color in season 3.
Image
Image

Here's my most recent repaint, TMII Dinobot along with Transmetal Dragon Megatron. I did extensive paint apps Dinobot's head/face and body to make him look like he does on the show. I used the beige variant of the figure (you can see his unpainted tail sitting on the shelf behind him). For Megatron, I just did a few subtle paint apps to make him more closely resemble his look on the show.
Image
Image
Image

Finally, here's Tigerhawk. I modded him by removing the metal hawk faceplate/helmet from the shoulder and I painted the blue with a clear purple and did paint apps on his head to make him look more like the show, including the eyes for his beast head and the gold accents in various spots. I also painted his Maximal emblem red.

Here's a couple of updates along with a new addition to my Predacon ranks, none other than Evil Predacon Rhinox!

First up, I've updated my original Rhinox, adding his second gun as featured on the show:

Image

Here's an updated Blackarachnia with a few minor paint modifications since she was last seen:

Image

And last but certainly not least, here's the Predacon Rhinox as featured in the episode "Dark Designs":

Thanks, I'll probably have more pics up soon. I've done some more detailing/alterations to a few of my figures. I just need to get some more batteries for my camera :P.
