my superion maximus project!

Weapon: Saber Blade
Ever since I was a little boy, I LOVED transformers. My family didn't have that much money so I didn't have the toys I've always wanted. My dad would buy me a transformer once every few birthdays and that meant soo much to me! It was another special bond between my father and I. I developed a huge love for transformers. I always looked at the toy store ads at new transformers and spent hours at the toy store looking at the new transformers I wanted. I always dreamed of having a little collection but more so, I wanted more transformers for my current ones to play and do battle with! I started draw my own transformers and even started making my own out of scrapes. I become quite crafty and made new armor pieces and upgrades to my current ones. This saved my parents money and made me happy!

Fast forward to now. I always remember the days my dad presenting me my transformer toys. The image is vivid to me. Now that I am older and I have money, I can start my collection that i've always wanted!

My most recent purchase was a Superion Maximus, re-released under the "revenge of the fallen" line. This is a combiner made up of the aerial bots (this guy usually sells for over 100 bucks online) This is what he looked like originally went i bought him:
Image

he was used and missing pieces, but even looking beyond that, he wasn't the "BEST" looking combiner (even though i always thought he was badass)

So the Fansproject upgrade kit is totally awesome, but expensive and this kit IT'S SOLD OUT EVERYWHERE!

I wanted to upgrade my Superion, but there wasnt a way for me to get this kit, so what do I do? I make my own.

I sacrified some other toys that were already damaged or i didnt care for anymore

I used megatron's legs to make the feet upgrade for Superion

Image

Image

these are superion's dinky little feet before:

Image

and now after:

Image

I used movie star scream's thighs to make Superion's Forearms

Image

Fitted the legs and now fitted the forearm upgrades

Image

shaped them and primered the forearm pieces:

Image

I used movie Brawl to create a shield/weapon for superion's left arm

Image

Image

He is starting to come together!
Image

I made the right arm weapon BEEFIER! gave him a RIFLE, I even added megatron's weapon for a shoulder cannon

Image

Added a shoulder shield for the left arm:

Image

here are some of the individuals with the armor upgrades i made, some of them are kind of corny but...hey what do you expect?! im an amateur!

Image

Image

the other arm is on! both forearms without the weapons upgrades
Image

here's the TEAM

Image

Image

ALL ON! except hands...i need hands.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

OK well that's all for now! it took me a Day to do this and I still have some more work to do with him, I have to measure out some poseable hands, maybe a set from a Gundam, and I want to custom paint him and his parts. Let me know what you think! give me some feedback (positive would help haha) and thanks for reading!

I like it though I think the armament is a little overkill on a flyer. Even though I got the FP Crossfire set, I found my Superion less than superior then I liked too so I highly recommend getting an abdomen filler for it.

The best part about making it your own way is it's however you want it to be. Mine isn't exactly standard either. I mixed Energon and ROTF Aerialbots, have the Crossfire set, the ab filler, use a KO G1 head, and transform the arms differently. But it's how I wanted it. And I think it turned out pretty good.

I went to Wizard World Philadelphia last month but that's all I go to since Cybercon in NJ stopped. I'm not into anime and I don't cosplay so Otakon really doesn't appeal to me but I do have a couple friends that go.

Okay, that customized Superion Maximus is awesome! And it's your first?! Man, you're off to a great start! :O :D
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

That Superion custom is VERY creative. I swear I wouldn't have thought to use any of those parts. I've also always liked Superion, but refuse to pay aftermarket prices for the Fansproject upgrades. At first, I never displayed my Superion because he lacked hands and decent weapons. However, a few weeks ago, I ordered the Junkion Infinity Warfare I set in red to give my Predaking some hands and a decent weapon. Well, the eBay seller accidentally mailed me the Infinity Warefare II set in red. I chalked it up as a loss and ordered the set I wanted from Robot Kingdom. My wife urged me to at least let the seller know he messed up, though. So after I ordered the set from RK, the seller said he'd ship the correct weapon set to me for free and I could keep the set he accidentally sent to me. Long story short, I ended up with 2 Infinity Warfare I sets and 1 free Infinity Warfare II set. I tried to figure out what to do with the extra pair of hands, and decided to try them out on Superion. After A LOT of fiddling with it, the hands fit and I even put together a staff for him.

I've taken a few pictures of Superion with the hands, his staff, and even a little gun I made using the set. I also included a few pictures of my other figures using different configurations of the weapon set. I've decided that I like the hands on him so much that I ordered the Blue set (which will look better on an Autobot) and figured I'd make a hammer for my Animated Black Convoy. Kinda like an evil Magnus hammer or something, lol.

Hmm, never thought about it, but yea, those hands do kinda make him look brutish. I guess it's because they're so big. They're intended for Predaking (a REALLY big figure), and not necessarily the Energon combiner molds. Still, now that you mention it, I like knowing his big clawed hands make him look like a brute. At least he won't look like a wimp when posed with Bruticus who DOES have the badass Fans Project add-ons.

Also, thanks for the compliment on the collection. That's only about 1/3 of what I actually have, though. Due to space limitations, the majority of my figures are packed away in my closet (which is also starting to run out of space! :lol: ).
