Famous Characters- Locustized!!!

Got a great pic of G1 Op or BW Megs? Whether it's 2-D or 3-D it's welcome as is any other form of art outside the custom figure world.

Many of you know that I love to transform random images into variations of my Locust characters. Today is no different. When boredom strikes, PHOTOSHOP TO THE RESCUE!!

Recolor 1: TF Movie IronPie
This is actually a failed project. Way too much blue and his parts are hard to tell from each other. Still, I love the way his face fit my theme perfectly.

Recolor 2: TF Movie CrumpleThong
This one came out better than I could've hoped. I didn't have very high hopes but it came together quite well.

REcolor 3: Iron Pants
Now that I've done the partial recolor, I HAVE to find a full body shot to finish this.

You got way too much time on your hands!

Interesting works.

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

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.
