If anyone's noticed my signature lately, you'd know my plans. I'm starting to design a Fracas Targetmaster for the recently released Scourge. For those who own the figure, what I plan to do is on his little butt-flap (which forms the top of his bomber mode) I'll try to drill a 4.9 - 5.0 millimeter hole, so he'll have a way to have Fracas mount on his vehicle mode. Next, since I own two Cyclonuses(i?), I'll repaint a Nightstick (preferably the one from the Universe '09 line) into Fracas. Anyone like this idea so far? I might not be able to drill the hole (that's what she said), as it takes precise drilling, and one wrong move can really screw up the plate. And I can't paint worth a flip, so Fracas might not come out right. :-s

I find I can get it to stay on, but not pointing straight, if I point it straight then it falls off at the slightest touch - which I assume is not just a problem with my Hound.
Anyone have any useful tips/pics?

Actually, alot of the times, It's not the launcher, there's some secret to Hound's transformation. It straighten's everything out.

Very simple mod that for me makes a big difference, I used the outer insulation from one of my old PS2 controllers, I trapped one end between his left forearm and weapon and the other end is just placed in the 5mm hole in his back, the only problem with it is there is no use for it in alt mode and it is just a little too slack for the hole in his back.

Another very simple mod, this time to the BTS trailer, simply re-sprayed a Powermaster Prime shoulder cannon dark blue and attached it to the repair claw arm. Due to the slack ball joints I had to drape the arm over the top and behind the tower unit, but I think it works pretty well.

My custom Classics Ultra Magnus

I used these parts:

Igear Ultra Magnus Upgrade Set (Head and missles)

KO Battle Tanker forearm and crotch armor

United G2 Laser Optimus Prime forearms

Fansproject Crossfire Superion Hands

I have no idea why this keeps happening, but it keeps saying my pictures are too large to upload, so screw it- here's a link to it:

Weapon: Gatling Cannon
Prowl is my favorite character in IDW's mainline comics. After reading Everything in it's Right Place by Nick Roche (the true "Spotlight: Prowl") and LSotW, I had to get his figure. I loved everything about it; except the paint.

Aside from the fact that he was sticky, he was also boring to look at. So after scraping the paint off of his doors and roof, I added some black racing stripes to break up his colors. This definitely made him look BAD, but I felt he was missing that proverbial suffix. So I took the bumper off of my RotF Barricade and glued it onto Prowl. This made him BADASS!

To round out the figure, I also took Barricade's light bar. It looks less like a toy, and also fits with the new colors really well.

I keep adding things as the years go by, such as the lines on his thighs, which I though gave him a Tron look. I also drilled small holes into forearms in order to attach some removable blasters, akin to pre-war Orion Pax.

Enjoy the pics! All feedback and constructive criticism is appreciated!

P.S. Sorry I didn't embed the pics in the post - I'm new to this kind of thing, still getting used to it. :roll:

Finally finished my Classics Prowl paint job, I used Plasticote paints and some generic Police model decals, was a labour of love and one hell of a learning curve, but all worth it in the end.

Enjoy.

I recently ordered AM Leo Prime with a few extra add-on parts:

2x AM Leo Prime- I ordered 2 to do the left leg swap and fix the ridiculous stump they gave him.

1x Scout Class Sunspot- I'll attach him to Leo Prime as a flight pack- which, if my plan works the way I hope, he should be able to transform with him attached- no removal needed. I'll be using his thigh armor holes as connection ports for the pegs in Sunspot's feet. That is, if they fit....we'll see.

1x TF Prime Sergeant Kup- I'll attach his cannons to Sunspot's arms as back boosters.

1x Bot Shots Optimus Prime- For his new head.

I also ordered Sunspot to add more yellow to Leo Prime's overall color set. What I believe drew most fans to the original Lio Convoy was his unique amount of gold, specifically in his mane- and seeing as how the new figure doesn't really have that, I'm adding Sunspot to increase his brighter colors.

If this works, I plan to order 2 Black Leo Primes, a Bot Shots Nemesis Prime head, another TF Prime Sergeant Kup, ROTF Scout Class Skystalker, and do the same thing. I'll post an update soon. ^_^
