Custom Transformers Decepticon Justice Division Tarn Figure by DarkCave
Taking advantage of the latest in 3D printing technology is DarCave's Custom Transformers Decepticon Justice Division Tarn figure, a one of a kind evil bot that is built to "Find. Kill. Cleanse." According to DarkCave, his head, dual fusion cannon, chest plate and shoulder/tank treads were CAD drafted and 3D printed. I am so excited that customizers are starting to use 3D printers as it opens up the possibilities to create customs at scale. For those who are skilled in CAD, it offers those who are more talented figuring out software. Using interchanging parts with Generations Springer and Sandstorm figures, Tarn is a seamless construction of Transformers and additional parts created by DarkCave. My favorite part of this custom is the chest plate as it reminds me of the combiners, especially Devastator. It is cool to find combiner parts on smaller figures as it gives them a very unique look. Since Tarn does not exist in the Transformers Universe, DarkCave has written a back story on him:
"Tarn is the leader of the Decepticon Justice Division, a group of Decepticons tasked by Megatron to hunt down traitors to the Decepticon cause. Even though he's fearful and intimidating, your intrigued by his personality and, in some ways, his nobility. As well as his addiction to transforming and classical music. No to mention this evil bastard can actually TALK his victim to death."
