In celebration of the recent release of Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, this latest piece of Transtopia Masterclass showcases some of the bots featured in the film. Not one custom, but three from three well-known customizers!

With the idea of Ironhide being a Voyager class figure getting rather rusty, frenzy_rumble has taken the Leader Class figure and turned the piece into a gunslinging masterpiece. Optimus Prime's predecessor, Sentinel Prime, looks devastating thanks to sabsabby85. She takes the Leader Class figure and adds tons of details, lights, and a giant sword! Last but not certainly not least, we have everyone's favorite villain, Megatron. Jin Saotome takes the rather static Voyager Megatron figure and breathes some life into it!

You'll find the full galleries of each figure by clicking the links below. Enjoy!

meh..

paint work is pretty good, and megatron's gun is cool..

but the overall accuracy isn't there. ironhides guns don't look that great. megatrons cloak doesn't look nearly as cool as it did in the movie.. or on the retail release even. '

anyways. all in all they're pretty decent.

my one complaint is that customs like this (frenzy-rumble type stuff) look more like a custom painted toy rather than a paint job that makes the toy look more like the character model.

Ironhide loks awesome :D.Looks VERY different from the Hasbro release

Sentinel is more or less kinda look the same as the Hasbro release.

Megatron's cloak look like a poncho and looks horrible...More horrible than the original one IMO. And I dont like how he made the fingers look more weird >.>...But love the rusty paint apps and LOVE the shotgun :D.

Beautiful work. But I hate the way he uses photoshop to touch up the picture. Put up normal pics so we may see how the figure really looks in real life.

These all look amazing! :D But some of it's photoshopped? That's too bad.

I also chuckled at the use of the Buster Sword for Sentinel Prime, but it works. :grin:

In this picture, and also in the movie, That armour thing in the middle of Ironhide's chest looks like it's made out of his bumper. But I don't think it was in the last two movies. I thought that was a notably weird part of his design that there was a prominent piece of armour that wasn't made out of any truck part. Does anyone remember if it was always his bumper or if this was a design change?

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.

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.
