I really like his Energon Big Powered, Energon Armada Wheeljack, and of course his Landcross Energon guys.

Is this the same guy who made the Ultra Megatron? I didn't bother clicking on every single link for to see his customs. At any rate, if it is then UM is his best figure and one of the best of I've. After seeing the WIP pics for his UM, I'm even more in awe. Such a great use of styrene and putty to heavily modify an existing mold. Maybe these comments should be under the UM thread but I thought this guy may be the same guy.

Well that seems to be the case, after looking thru all the galleries, they doesnt seems to be made by different people...

He made Ultra Megatron, GF Deathsaurus, Superlink Thunderclash, SL Dreadwing & Darkwing (Hydra & Buster actually), SL Black Zarak, SL Fortress Maximus, SL Overlord (one with Energon Jetfire & Ironhide, and another with Omega Supreme)

Theyre Just too many figures to list them all!

Judging from the site links, I think he did the Ultra Megatron. He also did the following:

-Energon Starscream as Dai Atlas (plus an Energon figure and a Cybertron figure as Sonic Bomber and Road Fire)
-Signal Flare as Perceptor (with microscope mode, even)
-Energon Jetfire and Ironhide as Overlord
-Wing Saber and Energon Stormjet as the Masterforce Buster and Hydra (aka Darkwing/Dreadwing)
-Energon Rodimus, Prowl, and Hotshot as Masterforce versions of Joyride, Slapdash, and Getaway
-The two-pack with Superlink Grand Convoy (smaller version) as Thunderclash and Superlink Galvatron as Skyquake
-Energon Inferno with mini-con Thunderclash (y'know, Armada Skywarp's partner) as Targetmaster Artfire

And on and on and on. He also did a lot of customized packaging, too.

I guess he's responsible for a lot of customs that people confuse with actual Hasbro/Takara product.

Actually, I ran the site through Babelfish and it indicates that the Decepticon Omega Supreme (that's the one you're referring to, right?) is supposed to be a Metrotitan homage. And at the end there a photoshop recolor to give "Omega Titan" an X-Men Sentinel color, and it has a similarity to BWII Galvatron's colorscheme.

Bumping this up, because on http://pcwr.kt.fc2.com/log4.htm there's new updates, and now we know which recent stuff from Livedoor is made by Freestyle (Firestar made from Kup, Cybertron Blaster, Cybertron King Atlas, Pyro and Clench, etc)

They are. Like I said, all of them had already been posted on Livedoor, but on Freestyle's site, Freestyle actually adds some more extra pictures (with some presumably photoshopish effects for interesting & dramatic scenes). For instance, there's a comparison between standard Override and his own custom Override, just to see the subtle differences; I don't think the comparisons were shown on Livedoor, were they?

And you can enter the Freestyle site into Babelfish just to see what it'd say.

Actually, he did show the comparisons for Nitro Convoy on Livedoor. But you're right, it's usually just the one pic on there, where here he gets to use several images, as well as comparison shots to other figs, as well as base figures. Pity he doesn't go more into how the 'bashes are made, though.

And indeed, Babelfish is a good thing for translating Japanese sites in general. Though the result is still somewhat strangled and difficult to read, you can (at least usually) get the gist of what's being said.
Although I have noticed that Babelfish won't translate Freestyle's front page for some reason; it'll do all the others, though.
