I love it when customizers take pride in their work and love what they do, which is why Chonosmoon's Custom Transformers Henkei Classic Icestorm figure is a cut above the rest.  The frost white and blues gives me the chills just writing this as the colors are well executed and play off of each other nicely.  As Chonosmoon describes on his website, "This custom I worked on in between working on Sunstorm and Impactor. Icestorm is based off fellow customizer & friend FrenzyRumble’s Masterpiece Icestorm. Using the inspiration I create this Icestorm to match my previous Sunstorm’s detailing and style."

In addition to learning how these amazing customs come to life, I am also interested in learning about the customizers.  For example, as I was on his site, I learned that he is a war veteran and with Memorial Day approaching, I just wanted to personally thank Chonosmoon for his service to this great country.  Here is more about the artist in his own words:

"I am an US Army combat veteran who finds his escape by creating some of art you see here. Chonosmoon is my chosen handle for web design and customizing Transformers figures. I started customizing in 2010 and have always enjoyed Transformers since I was little kid in the 80s. I hope that my creations can share that same joy, if not better than what I had growing up on them."

Custom Transformers Scourge Fall of Cybertron Nemesis Prime Figure by Chonosmoon

Inspired by one of the figures in his own collection, Chonosmoon creates a killer version of Scourge with his Custom Transformers Fall of Cybertron Nemesis Prime figure.  Using the classic black and teal colors from the Robots in Disguise line, he took an FOC Optimus Prime (base)  and Air Raid figure (weapon) to combine the parts to create one slick looking figure.  The teal that is used in the figure is in all the right places and really mirrors the RID Scourge figure very well.  I love learning about what inspired customers to make these great customs so let's hear more from Chonosmoon himself:

This custom is directly inspired by the Takara Tomy RID Scourge in my personal collection. I kept the art style simple so the figure would blend in with non-customized figures. The idea was to completely transform the original base figure (FOC Optimus Prime) into Scourge without making it obvious the figure was customized at all!  Keeping the detailing simple was hard for me because I had to often stop myself from adding the meticulous detailing I’m used to. Challenge in the end was very satisfying and I love how the figure looks next to RID Scourge.  One of the few things, I like about this one in particular is that he really looks like a mini me of scourge. Most customs I’ve seen of scourge always have the windows red, or and smoke pipes silver. Considering the “cybertronian” style mold used I made my design decisions accordingly.

If you love this figure, there are a few things you can do.  First, you can buy this great Custom Transformers Fall of Cybertron Nemesis Prime figure on eBay or visit Chonosmoon's gallery either on his website or over at Procustomizers.com.

Warpath Brawl Redstorm Custom Transformers Figures by Chonosmoon

Warpath Brawl Redstorm Custom Transformers Figures

Get ready for an all out tank battle with some metal to metal bashing with Chonosmoon's Custom Transformers Warpath, Brawl, and Redstorm armored trio he has up for sale this week.  The paint app on these figure is superbly done to give the figures a fine depth and dimension to them.  My favorite parts of these customs were the way the plastic was painted to look like real metal, a detail that can't be overlooked when customizing a Transformer.  It is two Decepticons (Brawl and Redstorm) against the Autobot Warpath in this artillery soaked battle for good and evil.

It is great to learn the inspiration and back story for the figures that are created.  For example, the Redstorm figure, as Chonosmoon describes,

"When I first saw Hailstorm, the mold this custom is based off, I wanted to customize it. It would take a couple months to figure out how I would go about customizing the figure. I didn't want to do realistic and make it look like the M270 Military Vehicle the mold was based on as seen to the right. So instead, I used War for Cybertron Warpath as my main source of inspiration. Considering my Redstorm's personality the color red turned out to be a fitting color in the end. Redstorm is basically completed; he just needs to have his decepticon logos put on and some better pictures taken.  To make this, I used the Hunt for the Decepticons (HFTD) Hailstorm mold."

Soundwave and Laserbeak Shattered Glass Transformers Custom by Chonosmoon

Chonosmoon has given the Decepticons  communication officer a really clean look with his Custom Transformers Shattered Glass Soundwave and Lasserbeak figure.  In the original figure produced by Hasbrol, the color scheme washed out any of the detail on the drone but Chonosmoon has fixed this with an impeccable paint app and custom styling.  The decision to lighten the figure up was a great one and the G1 blue that adorns the figure is there to bring out the subtle detail and, in my opinion, pay homage to the Generation Soundwave we great up with.  This is a great example of how the smallest details can really make or break a custom and it just goes to show you that sometimes being subtle is all you need!
