You have any clue what you're even talking about? Those are real LEDs and all he does is change the background. Yeah, complete difference from what is looks like in real life. Even our own Seibertron.com galleries use photoshop to alter the background.

Well the difference is Ryan uses a plain white backround, while Transtopia use a fake backround. They also enhance the colors and shadows like Hasbro does on their "official images" on the back of the card to make it look 10 times better then the actual plastic used. In other words, if you are buying, what you see is not what you get. And those customizers do sell their stuff.

On the other hand, Ryan's galleries are so well done and enhanched to a minimum, that they have actually influenced me to choose between Hasbro and Takara versions. And with Ryan'a galleries, what you see is what you get. ;)

The customizers are not Transtopia. And you're not going to buy these customs, so why bite so much?

I usually like Jin Saotome, but that Megatron looks awful.

Ironhide is epicly epic.

Sentinel is meh. All she did was touch up the paint.

Don't take anything I say seriously, because what I say may not necessarily be what I mean.

I just want to see a pic of the figures as they really are. No harm in that, right ??? Ever seen your favorite exotic dancers in the daytime without makeup and their hair done ??? Trust me, the value goes way down. ;)

Hey thanks Blurrz! Appreciate the heads up. Not sure about the mumbling but all I did was to take pics in a soft box with professional lights. Only editing was to adjust the white balance.

And yes! Sentinel Prime was fully painted and not just touched up or whatsoever! Love you guys for the support!

Theses are great. I saw Frenzyrumbles Ironhide and the Sentinel Prime on ebay last week and I think the bidding price was over $700! Not sure what it ended up selling for though. But man they do look good!

Well if all those shadows and different tones of red are painted details then I must say you are you are very talented at what you do. Great work on the figure. All I was saying is that the CG backround lead me to believe that maybe you were enhancing the figures colors/shadows as well. You know, like Hasbro does on all their packaging. My apologies if I was wrong. Blurrz can get touchy at times on these fourms, but in person he is a really cool guy. Blurrz, I was asking for you in Pasadena, hope to see you next year. :D

Haha, it's all good Rated X, you just say it how it is, and there's nothing better than that.

I'll certainly try to make my way to BotCon next year, hopefully it'll be in the cards.

hey guys, thanks for the compliments.

Ironhide is mine, and while I am pretty much positive sabrina and jin don't either - nothing on my photos has been altered or fixed in photoshop. I run all my photos through photoshop to center and resize them, then auto-color (so that the colors are exact to the actual custom, camera isn't very good at that)

like said, I wouldn't sell a custom with Photoshopped images. Would create problems when the buyer received them, of course. Instead; most customers get my customs and when in hand say something along the lines of how much better they look than in the pics. (yeah, need to work on my photography skills apparently)

3 of the best customizers in the game and the source of much of my inspiration for the customs I do. I still go back and look at pics of "Extinction" by Frenzy, Sabrina's menasor or Jin's "Baracadia" when Im lacking inspiration. I personally love Sabrinas skill when it comes to painting, it truly blows me away every time. I'd like to see these 3 take their best customs up to hasbro and just show them off and let hasbro know what the fans really want!
