Grimlock Custom Platinum Edition Transformers Figure

The Platinum Edition Transformers are doing a real justice to the classic line from the 80's and Billmeister has taken one of the figures and given it a killer paint job with his Custom Transformers Grimlock that is styled after the coloring found on the box art as well as the CGI representation found in the Transfomers game.  This repaint boasts bold coloring such as steel silver, silver aluminum, and, and chrome chest and neck pieces.  The desired effect he was going for was a glow and he achieved that and then some!

Scourge Masterpiece Transformers Custom

Adding to the Masterpiece line, Colosal Customs creates a 9 inch version of one of the main Decepticons from the original Transformers Movie from 1986.  This Custom Transformers Masterpiece Scourge figure captures both the classic feel of the character with an updated look.  The lines on the figure are sharp and the iconic mustache and goatee are nicely done.  There is a ton of articulation in the figure, even in the wings so you can pose the figure in many different ways.  Comparing the figure to the original version, you will see many differences but the overall sleeker look is appealing to me and fits in with the rest of the more updated Transformers line.

Custom Marvel Legends Havoc

Eddie Grayce graces us with his talent with his Custom Marvel Legends Modern Havoc figure.  The contrast in colors on this figure are striking.  The way the blues play off the black and silver give the appearance that the figure is somehow illuminated or there is energy running through the figure.  Some of my favorite parts of this figure are the gloves and the hands.  I love the way these were done and the blue features tie in nicely with the chest.  The head sculpt was also done very well with the way the goggles appear that is something reflecting off of them.  To view more images and to buy this Custom Marvel Legends Modern Havoc figure, head over to eBay as there is only less than 5 hours to go on this one!

Custom Transformers Omega Supreme Platinum Edition by Prime Customs

CustomTransformersOmegaSupreme transformers generation 1 transformers

Custom Transformers Omega Supreme

Omega Supreme is one of the classic iconic figures in the Transformers Universe and Prime Customs has a killer Custom Transformers Omega Supreme Platinum Edition figure that is decked out in amazing detail and finishes.  There are a few aspects to highlight with this figure.  First, the weathering detail and carbon scoring give the figure an aged look, as if Omega is fresh from battle.  This is something that the toy companies shy away from as this does not have mass market appeal.  For hard core fans, this figure is right up your alley!  Second, the colors are well done.  They are not as bright as the stock figure, which adds to the battle worn look to the figure.  This figure is available to Buy Now over on eBay so check out Prime Custom's Custom Transformers Omega Supreme Platinum Edition figure.

Custom Transformers Masterpiece Ark Diorama by Wilestbilame

Custom Transformers Ark Diorama uncategorized

Custom Transformers Ark Diorama

According to the Transformers Wiki, the Ark, the Ark is the name given to the Autobot spaceship that, in many universes, originally carried the Autobot and Decepticon armies to Earth.  The Ark is a Vanguard-class Deep Space Interceptor. It has five decks and houses a full crew complement of 300 Transformers (although it can be flown by only a handful if necessary). Its environment is fully automated and self-sufficient. For engines, it features 4 Hyperfuel Intake Accelerators.  Wiliestbilame recreates this classic scene where the Arrk rests in this mountain as the Autobots headquarters with his Custom Transformers Ark diorama.  This dio is scaled for 3" to 5" figures and goes nicely with the Titan Metroplex figure that towers 2 feet tall.  The rocks looks so real I almost thought he had used some boulders he found in nature.  This dio is well done and sure to add some spice to your Transformers collection.

Piranacon Custom Transformers Combiner uncategorized transformers generation 1 transformers

Custom Transformers Piranacon

Frenzy Rumble really knows how to create towering works of art and his latest Custom Transformers Piranacon is no exception.  This figure, which happened to be a commission but the buyer could not follow through with his end of the deal, stands a towering 16" tall and has two bright yellow LED's for eyes.  That really makes these large figures one of a kind are the attention to detail and creativity that customizers pour into every figure.  For example, the lines and edginess of this custom give it rather harsh and stealth like appearance.  Paying homage to the original G1 color scheme, Frenzy Rumble did an amazing job incorporating all of the pastel colors from the 80's figure we grew up with.  To check out more photos, head over to eBay and view his Custom Transformers Piranacon and look at all of the killer photos!

Custom Transformers Shockwave Alternators Muscle Car

Being a huge fan of muscle cars myself, this Custom Transformers Alternators Shockwave designed to look like a 1971 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda caught my eye for several reasons.  First, the concept itself is outstanding.  Typically you see the Alternator line featuring more up to date cars but this Shockwave is a twist to that line and a welcome addition!  The choice of muscle car could not have been more perfect.  The Plymouth 'Cuda is a heavy duty car with lots of bulk and mass, kind of like how the 1980's Shockwave was created to look like a massive bulky gun.

Second, the colors and the attention to detail on this custom are second to none.  The paint has a showroom shine and the purple and black play nicely off each other.  Lastly, the way this car was converted will make your head spin.  If you can believe it, this figure started off as a Mazda RX-8 from the 2004 Alternators line.  To read how this car was converted, head over to eBay and check it out!

Custom Cyclonus GI Joe Transformers Crossover

I love when universe collide and Gill Customs has created an amazing Custom Cyclonus GI Joe Transformers Crossover made from a Conquest X-30.  Painted in the classic purple and silver colors, the base vehicle makes a great start for a G1 seeker jet.  In addition to the killer paint app, Cyclonus has lights in the cockpit, rear thrusters, and engines.  The cockpit canopy even sports the orange color that was found on the original G1 Cyclonus figure.  There have been many unique GI Joe Transformers crossover customs made over the years and I wish customizers would make more because I love both toy lines and it is great when they are blended together.  If you want to see more photos of Gill Customs' crossover Custom GI Joe Transformers Cyclonus figure, head over to eBay!

Serpentor and Throne Custom Cobra GI Joe Figure

Stronox Customs knows how to treat a ruler right and his Custom Cobra Serpentor figure with Thrown pays a killer homage to the ultimate Cobra leader.  Both the thrown and figure have stunning detail, especially for a 4 inch figure.  Stronox has given Serpentor many different looks and even gives you a hooded version, which pays respect to the original Cobra Commander figure.  The cape is also wired which is a very cool addition and gives the figure an added sense of versatility and poseability.  The thrown is painted almost in an Aztec fashion with 3 striking cobra heads that give the thrown a very royal feeling.  The flames are a very nice touch and add to the mystique of the figure.  To place a bid on this great piece of work, head over to eBay and check out Stronox's Custom Serpentor figure and Thrown!

With Colosal Custom's Titan Metroplex Custom Trasformers figure, it is all in the fine details.  Since the 30th Anniversary Metroplex figure came out, I have been waiting for customizers to get their hands on this behemoth and some have answered the call.  In addition to the simulated weathering and glow effects, there are numerous smaller details that really make this figure stand out.  For example, the addition of lacquer to the labels to seal them down as well as LED eyes make this figure come alive.  A lot of the nooks and crannies in the figure are detailed, which give the figure a look like no other.  To view more detailed photos of this amazing figure, head over to eBay and check out Colosal Custom's Titan Metroplex Custom Trasformers figure.

Xaviercal has outdone himself this week.  Not only has he created a fully transformable massive figure but he also added a sibling to the Transformers Universe with his Custom Transformers Grand Maximus G1 city.  Standing taller than the Generations Metroplex at 24" (that is two feet for those who are metrically disadvantaged), Grand Maximus contains a killer paint app as well as loads of articulation.  The paint app is stellar and the way it was crafted brings out the weathering detail you would expect from a humongous Autobot city.  Here is more from Xaviercal himself:

I am always a sucker for a meticulously detailed custom and Xaviercal continues to deliver high quality customs that simply make me drool.  Take his Custom Masterpiece Transformers Optimus Prime figure, for example.  Xaviercal mentioned that he gave Optimus a realistic appearance and he was not kidding!  The plastic is painted to look like real metal and fine details on this figure can't be overlooked.  He gave the leader of the Autobots a very gritty, automotive feel to him from head to toe.  No nook and cranny was overlooked.  Even went as far as applying some rub details to the tips of the feet as well as making his windshield look all grimy as if the windows had not been cleaned in a while.  If you are looking for someone to lead your Autobots to battle, I would highly consider Xaviercal's Custom Masterpiece Transformers Optimus Prime figure as this ranks very high on my list of Optimus Prime figures.  Don't let this one get away!

The combiners are always a site for sore eyes and I am happy that a talented customizer has tackled one of the coolest figures ever made.  ForgottenForest has created this massive Custom G1 Transformers Predaking figure.  Sometimes it is hit or miss whether customizers include how they created the figure but lucky for us, ForgottenForest wrote a ton so let's take a look:

One of my all time favourite transformers this custom took months to create and i have Designed him to be in scale and fit perfectly with the classics/generations/henkei figures. Built with an eye for detail ,Predaking is largely scratch built so you will not be able to find him elsewhere. His custom scratch built parts include his hands which are ball jointed at the wrist and on every finger as well as having an extra joint on every finger allowing for an incredible range of motion. Predaking also has scratchbuilt hip and thigh armour (which is moveable) as well as his wings which were designed to be very generation one acurate as well as having individually posable feathers which fan out to really catch the eye (the wings are also posable to allow for greater movement). Predaking also comes with a custom scratch built head that is unique and modelled after his generation one appearance. As an added free bonus Predaking comes with G1 acurate re creations of his arm mounted cannon weapon as well as his  massive sword which is 11 inches long all by itself."

This figure brings back memories to the G1 greats of the past.  The colors are spot on with the classic orange, yellow, and black color scheme that we all know and love.  To check out more photos, head over to eBay check out this killer Custom G1 Transformers Predaking figure.

Xaviercal, using the Generations Metroplex, created this Custom Generation 1 Metrotitan Decepticon figure.  This figure is right up my ally!  I am not sure if you know but I took up Astrophotography as a hobby and this figure reminded me of that.  Constructed on Saturn's moon Titan, Metrotitan is a massive Decepticon warrior, commanded by the villainous Violen Jygar to destroy the Autobots.  The paint app really pops on this figure, bringing out all of the detail.  The metallic look to the figure gives it a very polished look.  The small details really make this figure come together.  For example, the choice to place gray on the knuckles or adding red accents on the knees give this figure depth and dimension and make it very interesting.  To view more photos or to place a bid on this great figure, head over to eBay to check out Xaviercal's Custom Generation 1 Metrotitan Decepticon figure.

Coming straight from the comics is Paint Customs' Doc Ock Custom Marvel Legends Scale figure.  When I first took a look at this figure, I thought it had a ton of character.  The way the face was painted and sculpted gives the figure a diabolical look and feel to him.  The face is a cross between someone you meet in real life and the comic, which was well executed.  You can even imagine what the eyes look like under the glasses.  Other cool modifications include fully articulated grasping claws, which are totally cool!  The claws are integrated so well into the back of the figure that they seamless come out to give the figure its classic look.  The tentacles also have a unique style to them and I love that they are painted silver and green.

Ultra Magnus Custom Transformers Beast Hunters Figure

The stock paint jobs that come with the figures off the shelf have always been a disappointment and it is customers like Billmeister who save these figures corporate doom!  Take his Custom Transformers Beast Hunters Ultra Magnus figure, for example.  He turned a lack luster paint app into a stunning display of deep blue and red metallics that literally make this figure shine.  When figures are painted like this, the facial features, as well as the fine details really come through much better.  The siler metallic parts really look like steel and I love the way the weapon was painted to add an effect of some kind of energy rushing through it as Ultra Magnus wields his mighty hammer!  The figure looks equally impressive in alternate mode where most of the body of the truck comes through as a deep blue with a crimson red top for the cab.  Fantastic work!

One of the pivotal scenes in the original Transformers movie from the 1980's is when Megatron is reformed into Galvatron and Boskoes Toys has captured this moment with this Custom Transformers Reformed Megatron figure.  Megatron really took a beating in the movie and the battle damage and the transformation is captured very nicely in this homage to the leader of the Decepticons.  The gashes and the carbon scoring on the figure give it a multidimensional effect and combined with the translucent purple on various parts of the figure make it look like he is caught in the middle of the transformation.
