Brothers re-united again. Prime and Magnus, back on the small screen together, but in a seeming reversal of roles. Optimus is the younger unsure, hesitant leader, and Ultra Magnus, the older, and wiser leader.

Entertainment News International brings us the first, very up close picture of the former City Commander's noggin.

Enjoy the teaser of this more mature version of this ever reluctant character.

You got way too much time on your hands!

Interesting works.

What really saved the day are the well-thought out names! :P

IronPie makes me laugh. And Crumplethong is just way too funny.

That will be a problem. I can't find one. I was searching for a basis for scratch-built Bonecrusher, in Voyager or Leader size. But i can't find a decent photo yet. So i can't start. :)

Can you try Blackout?
I could recolor it myself, because I have Serif Photoplus, but I'm curious to see what you come up with.

If you're referring to the latest image, it's Samus Aran from the latest metroid game.

I never said this was a TF only thread. On that note, any one else got some pics they want to see horrifically defiled into a darkly humorous pastiche of myself?

I'll give it a shot, but I prefer higher resolution images. These pics tend to lose a lot of detail.

It's beyond belief, but even Prime can make the Locsut scheme look cool. Even the gold[plated] thong doesn't make Prime look any less kickass.

I gotta say, I love the new samus, but I'm scared of what may lurk under locust-samus's armor.

Not my favorite work. I tried to make her look like a silly soldier but instead ended up making her look like the quarterback for the New K-2L Chozos Football Team.

I'll have to see if I can find a slightly larger image to work with, but I see some possibilities here.

Sorry for the delay. Been a busy week for me.

Recoloring toys isn't a strong suit but I'm reasonably pleased with this effort.

You look good in a dress. Pink really brings out your manly features yet lets the girl know you're still approachable. :mrgreen:

Indeed it is. They're such versatile vocations! You can use it for a paper weight or wear it around your neck like bling! :mrgreen:
