Custom-made transformers figures using pipecleaners!

Postby yantra3d » Fri Jul 06, 2012 1:10 pm

Hi everyone!

I've been coming to this website for a couple of years now and I just recently found the forums so I decided to join and share some of my transformers artwork with you all.

Here's some that I made using pipe cleaners and fabric gel paints... this one is my "Ultimate Optimus Prime" and he stands 9 inches tall:

Here's my TF-Prime Bumblebee I made for my brother's birthday, he is 6 inches tall. I tweaked the original colors a little for fun:

And here's a DOTM Mirage I made, he is 6 inches tall:

Hope you all enjoy!

I used to make things out of pipe cleaners when I was a kid! They weren't this good though :APPLAUSE:

Whoa, I'd have never thought pipecleaners could be made into such amazing work like that. I rather like the Mirage one in particular.

Hi!

I made some transformers toys using pipe cleaners too.

Here's a TFP Megatron I made with pipe cleaners and he is 6 inches tall:

Weapon: Battle Blades
these are really impressive. I'd love to see an instructible on how you make these :)

My little brother and I used to make tons of pipe cleaner super heroes when we were in school, never came out as snazzy as these guys.

update:
just went you you guys' blog :) I didn't know you guys were the designers of the Transformers Paper Beanies, that's awesome!
