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:
Grand Maximus has being made by using a brand new Fortress Maximus, This Grand Maximus custom has being customized to include articulation for his knees, neck, shoulders , arms and new articulated hands and fingers. He stands very stable with his own two feet. Standing taller then generations Metroplex at actual 24" height, He stand taller then the new generation Metroplex (please note that Genernation Metroplex photo are only for reference only not included in this auction). Grand Maximus has being painted based off his cartoon appearance but with a modern realistic color schemes and tones and it being weather effects for the appearance to make him look huge and an massive robot.

What goes around comes back around on eBay and ThyVipera's Custom Masterpiece G1 Scorponok figure is making an appearance once again. The fan who bought this custom back in April 2011 is putting him up for sale and now is your chance to grab this bad boy! I originally featured this amazing custom so you can read the original article to get the details or head over to eBay and place a bid!
Featuring a custom head sculpt by Arte Loco customs, ThyVipera has epitomized one of the most recognizable villains in recent history with his Custom G1 Transformers Masterpiece Megatron figure. Standing 12" tall, this is how the leader of the Decepticons should have been made. Created from a Masterpiece Megatron MP-5 figure, ThyVipera has added tons of articulation as well as rebuilt parts to make this the best G1 Megatron I have seen in years. Although this figure does not transform, Megatron really looks better in robot mode anyway so there is not loss without the ability to change into the Walther P38 from yesteryear. The head sculpt immediately grabbed my attention as the face almost has a human quality to it. This is really an outstanding figure and kudos to to great customizers, Arte Loco and ThyVipera, working together to pull of this amazing figure.
VampireSweetBlood has create a really cool hybrid figure based on the Steve Roger's version with his Custom Marvel Legends Hulk Captain America figure. The figures are blended very well with both aspects of the figure shining through. The classic styling of the Hulk's ripped pants as well as the transition of a white lab coat to the Captain America uniform on his right arm give a realistic transformation in the figure. Overall, this is a very cool figure to add to you collection!
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:
"Standing at a massive 16.5 inches (42cms) tall to the top of his head and about 21 inches to the top of his gun barrels with a wing span of over 20 inches(51cms),Predaking will tower over any autobot and be the pride of your collection. 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.
