One of the pivotal scenes in the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen movie was the epic battle in the forest between the forces of good and evil! Megatron and Optimus Prime were engaged in a fierce entanglement and Encline Designs has captured the moment where the great leader of the Autobots lost his spark with his Custom Leader Class Megatron and Optimus Prime diorama. Encline Designs is at the top of my list as one of the best customizers out there and his diorama really captures the somber mood and climax of Optimus Prime as he clings to life's last moments before he goes dark. It looks like this dio might have been a commission piece that someone is selling so lucky for you!
The Ravage figure that was produced for the Transformers 2 movie was pretty lackluster and there was not much it could do except turn into a cybertronian jet built for reentry back into the Earth's atmosphere. Protis82 has put his skills to good use and has created a Custom Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Steeljaw figure in a G1 color scheme. I don't see many customs made out of the Ravage figure so I thought I would highlight this one as it is unique and it fills a void where the Transformers 2 movie did not provide any robots to counter Ravage on the Autobots side. The head was sculpted to resemble what Protis82 thinks a ROTF Steeljaw to look like if it appeared in the movie. Although this figure suffers from the alternate mode where it is just a reentry bot, at least the alternate mode is much more interesting and looks like the G1 Steeljaw we grew up with.
Although not officially one of the Contructicons that combines into Devastator, Demolisher is a lone Decepitcon operating in plain site in the beginning of the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen movie. I would call him an honorary Contructicon and Giant Crafter has given Custom Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Demolisher a more realistic paint app. Typically, construction vehicles have a dirty yellow/orange look to them and this figure captures what a real construction vehicle would look like. The fine detailing and application of this dirty look is very well executed, giving the figure a deeper dimension.

Using the Hunt for the Decepticons Bumblebee as the base for Arte Loko Kustoms' G1 Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Prowl crossover figure, the best of the classic and modern styles are brought together. Adding body armor and a totally redesigned head sculpt, his end vision was to make this figure look nothing like the Bumblebee it was made from. I love hearing the stories behind how customizers create their works of art so let's read about the what was going on in Arte Loko's mind when he created this great figure:
I created this piece using a hftd bumblebee, I wanted this figure to look nothing like bumblebee when i was finished. So i decided to create some armor plates for his legs and shoulders inorder to bulk him up a bit. I was going to use an existing prowl head, but decided to sculpt one instead (entire head was sculpted). I also changed up his forearms to resemble the g1 prowl we all know.......his paint job was done in a (hoc) black pearl with some battle damage. His body was also highly detailed and weathered for that grimey look..I made him a texas state highway patrol. I used decals on the doors and front fenders.as far as the wheel go, I was going to use some big flashy euro style rims but was redirected when I remembered that I had some dayton spokes with whitewalls..after all thats how we do it in Texas!
And do it indeed! I love the fact that Arte Loko brought in his home state of Texas into the design. To view more photos and to place a bid on Arte Loko Kustoms' G1 Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Prowl crossover figure, head over to eBay
Using the Revenge of the Fallen Sideswipe figure as the inspiration for this Custom Transformers Red Alert figure, Unavermin pays homage to the G1 Autobot Lamborghini Fire Chief. Painted in the classic red and white color scheme, the finish on the figure is smooth and even. The F.D. decals are in the right places and the spirit of the classic paint app is captured very nicely, right down to the stripe going up and down the hood of the car. Topping the car off is an updated, more streamlined version of the siren lights. One great mod to this custom features internal hinge that allows his bulky "backpack" that normally sticks straight out back, to concentrate inwards to make him look more compact and stable in robot mode. To view photos of this mod, head over to eBay and check out Unavermin's Custom Transformers Red Alert figure.
Sunstorm has had many roles and personalities through the Transformers generations but one thing has always remained the same, he was always a Decepticon jet who is yellow or orange in color and DarkCaveCustoms has given him the royal leader class treatment with his Custom Transformers Sunstorm figure. Always wanted to create his own version of Sunstorm, Darkcave has come out swinging and hit a home run with this one. This figure looks amazing with the custom Cybertronian markings and the array of armaments that magnetically attach to the figure. Here are some more highlights:
- Custom sculpted head
- Buzzsaw saw and Rail gun
- The Rail gun opens and extends!
- The Buzzsaw actually spins!
- Eyes light up, chest lights up

If you were like me, I had to do a double take when reading the names of these figures as this collaboration between Solrac333 and Unicron9 has produced an alternate universe Skids and Mudflap Custom figures. Dubbed Muds and Skidflap, these Revenge of the Fallen customs are a team effort, which is how the characters from the movie operated...as a team! I love to see customizers team up to make customs and these figures look amazing with metal detailing and a more weathered look to them. As for their story, I will let Unicron9 tell it:
"In an alternate universe where different decisions led to a much different world than we know, Muds and Skidflap fight for the Autonomousbot cause against the Deceptioncons. Unlike the Skids and Mudflap that we know, these two are much tougher, darker, and more battle worn. They also have a hip-hop record deal. In this reality, Muds was the tougher of the two and thus got the green car. Their colors are a bit different too, especially in robot form. I also have the robot modes transformed slightly different in the pics to add to the effect."
I never thought of giving a Transformer a grill but the Muds figure is perfect for one! To check out more photos and to place a bid on these great figures, head over to eBay and check out the collaboration between Solrac333 and Unicron9 as they present their Skids and Mudflap Custom figures.
In the Transformers 2 Revenge of the Fallen movie, it was great to see some familiar names. Soundwave had one of the coolest jobs where he was essentially a spy that would tap into the satellite network above earth so the Decepticons can gain the upper hand. JCartwork has built upon this theme by creating this Custom Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Soundwave figure with a Cybertronian base (see below). The base is a very cool variation on the theme where Soundwave connects to a satellite so JCartwork has devised a base for Soundwave to connect to when he is at home in Cybertron (or where ever his travels may take him). What I love about this custom is the movie accurate paint scheme, which JCartwork has obviously executed perfectly. I like that you can make out all of the detail on Soundwave and that the face, joints, and other accents really pop on the figure. To see more photos of Soundwave and the Cybertronian base, head over to eBay!
Imagination is the cornerstone of a customizers ability to market their blood, sweat, and tears. Before I get into DarkCaveCustoms' Transformers Human Alliance Drift, let's take a look at his back story that goes along with this figure:
"It seemed to more of a myth than mission. For years Prowl had been assigned guardianship of a legendary blade. Said to be crafted from Allspark metal, it was as old as Cybertron itself. Yet this heavy long blade seemed to respond to no one. Using it in combat seemed useless and was better served strapped across Prowl's back as he looked for the one Autobot who could carry it. Megatron's soldiers grew more and more brazen, Courageous almost. If the Autobots were to succeed they need every soldier they could get, especially Drift. Thought to be lost somewhere in Asia, he had supposed crash landed to Earth hundred of years ago, on a recon mission scouting the planet. He had awoke and befriended the populace. Here in the mountains of Japan he could hide his form and learn to combine the ancient art of Metalikatto with Bushido. Yet even Drift knew he was still missing something. That one last part of him never made it to earth with him. Perhaps Prowl can set things right"
Instead of just using the head that came on the Sideswipe figure, it is cool to see a different head on this figure. The paint apps look stellar, with my favorite technique which makes the plastic looks like metal. With the thinking that went into the story above, even more went into the actual figure. Here is a rundown of the secret sauce of this figure:
"The head was built from ROTF Mindwipe/ROTF Leader Megatron/ROTF Ironhide's heads and some loose Gundam bits. The hands are from a 1/100 MG Gundam and the swords were scratch built from styrene with handles from Gundam Seed Blue Astray. Both wakizashis (swords) attach magnetically to his hips as well as to two magnetic points in his hands for all kinds of crazy poses. The hands movable/articulated thumbs, trigger and group forefingers as well."
Here is what the Transformers Human Alliance Drift looks like in alternate mode:
With a new larger scale Jazz in his hands, Frenzy.Rumble has taken an already amazing figure and given it a classic look with his Custom G1 Jazz Human Alliance figure. Here is some background on this great figure from Frenzy.Rumble himself:
"Human Alliance Jazz is a remarkable figure. Hasbro has really outdone themselves with this larger, super accurate and detailed Jazz figure. When I first broke him out of his cardboard prison, he begged me to repaint him in his original Generation 1 color scheme. Remember, all paints used in the process were lacquer and enamel, so the finish is very durable, and the colors will stay vibrant and true for many many years (keep in mind, this is a collectible, so don't throw it around!)"
Modification/Feature Details :
- Chrome wheels
- Articulated hands
- Super glossy white paint job
- Metallic blue racing stripe with chrome pinstripes
- Tons of custom decals
Frenzy.Rumble makes the most amazing customs I have seen so head over to eBay and check out more photos of his Custom G1 Jazz Human Alliance figure.
There are a couple aspects of the Transformers Human Alliance figures that I like. First, they are doing the more popular figures in Voyager Class scale. Second, these larger figures provide a great canvas for talented customizers like Xaviercal to showcase his skill with this Custom Transformers Human Alliance Jazz in a G1 redeco. This figure pays a grea homage to the Generation 1 classic figure we grew up with with a couple great additions/modifications. You will first notice the hood scoop on the car, which makes the car look meaner in vehicle mode. Also, Xaviercal changed out the hands and also added a ball joint to the head of Jazz to make him more poseable. Check out the figure in robot mode:
Using the Transformers Human Alliance Sideswipe as the base, DarkCaveCustoms has spun off an oldie but goodie in name only with his Custom Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Sunstreaker figure. The design of this figure is one of my favorites from the line. I loved the concept that Autobots can skate around on their wheels, which seems like a faster way get from point A to point B now that I think about it. For DarkCave's figure, I like the more subdued yellow paint app versus the bright yellow of the G1 Sunstreaker figure. Here is what the figure looks like in vehicle mode:
The white racing stripe breaks up the yellow and gives the car a very unique look. To check out more photos of DarkCave's Custom Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Sunstreaker figure, head over to eBay!
It is great when customizers get their hands on a figure that is their favorite in the toy line and this is the case for Frenzy.Rumble's Custom Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Leader Class Starscream figure. He took a great figure and made it perfect. Attention to detail is something that Frenzy.Rumble does very well. For example, he removed the tattoos that did not appear on the Movie Starscream and redid them to make the figure as movie accurate as he could. I also like small details and it is great to see that he put ball joints on the hands as this gives the figure the personality and poseability from the movie. To see the level of detail and hard work that goes into these customs, check out the before and after shots:
Frenzy.Rumble has a ton of modifications listed so head over to eBay and check out his Custom Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Leader Class Starscream figure.
Packed full of lights, sounds, and standing 12" tall, Frenzy.Rumble's Custom Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Battle Ops Bumblebee is larger than life (at least from a toy perspective). Frenzy.Rumble packs all he can into every custom and here are a list of features for this one:
- Electronic Sounds : Bumblebee has over 20 different voice clips and sound effects in robot and car modes. Including "Time to take out the trash", "I will protect you" and many more. Different sound/voice clips for each (Guardian Duty, Battle Duty, and Camaro modes)
- Electronic Lights : Super bright BLUE LED light up eyes, 2 Red LED lights in his arm cannon, Light up head and fog lights (Camaro mode), light up shoulder cannons
- Flip down battle mask
- Left arm auto-transforms into arm cannon
- Battle mask activates different sounds and phrases
- Flip out cannons in both car and robot modes
If you look close, you can see some very fine battle damage detailing, which is very well placed in the figure. The plastic really has the appearance of metal and the light effects are definitely not photo shopped. Here is what the figure looks like in car mode:

I love when customizers take on Scourge because I love to see what they do to the trailer. This week, Toyphilia has a great Custom Transformers ROTF Scourge figure with a very simple, yet effective, trailer. I have seen many Scourge trailers but I really like the simplicity of this one. The black Decepticon logo at an angle adds the right touch to the custom painted ROTF Optimus Prime. I also like the lightning effects as it is a very different look that I have seen from other Scourge figures. The robot mode also looks very cool as well:
I have always been a fan of the military and the "might" that they produce so when I saw that Jetfire was an SR-71 Blackbird I was stoked and Bratimus Customs has paid a great homage to this great warrior with his Custom Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Jetfire. The paint aps on this figure bring out so much of the detail that was lost in the original Hasbro version. The style of paint really adds depth to the figure and brings the character to life. I can almost hear Jetfire's crotchety old voice through this figure. The blue LED's are a great addition to the figure!
Ever since Revenge of the Fallen came out of the theaters, this character had me hooked. He was cranky, old, and most of all fun! I've always been curious as to what Jetfire would look like in his toy version. When he was finally released, I have to say that Jetfire was such a canvas for creativity.We had a blast just trying to add details to the final paint. We ended up deciding to put details on the gears inside his torso and thighs that we had to sacrifice some of the electronics particularly the sounds that he makes. Moreover, we had to sacrifice the Decepticon, skunk and Lt. Col. Brawley Insigna to make the jet look like a a sleek blackbird.
To find out what other mods and paint they chose for this great figure, head over to eBay and check out Bratimus Customs' Custom Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Jetfire figure.
One of the coolest scenes in Transformers Revenge of the Fallen was when Devastator violently combined into the huge robot that tore apart the pyramids in Egypt. Crefigz has taken this monster and applied his signature techniques to his Custom Transformers ROTF Devastator. A very funny scene in the movie was when Agent Simmons was standing beneath the wrecking "balls" of Devastator and Crefigz even added this detail from the movie. This is a great looking figure and you can see more photos over at eBay and check out Crefigz's Custom Transformers ROTF Devastator.
Crefigz is back with a kick ass version of the leader of the Decepticons with his highly detailed Custom Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Megatron. This has to be one of the most detailed Megatrons I have seen thus far from the ROTF line. If you look at the photo above, there is scoring, many levels of paint shading and he even added molding to Megatron's head to achieve a more movie like look. Pictures do tell a thousand words so head over to eBay and view the many photos he has over on his Custom Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Megatron page.
Sideways is a great looking Decepticon and although he is briefly in the movie, his purposed was served by providing a very cool action scene in the movie where Sideswipe leaps over him in pursuit and throws a blade into the front of his hood and slicing him completely in half when Sideswipe reconnects with the blade thus finishing him off. Fallenkia has a great version of Sideways (before his demise) that is movie accurate and has a very cool feature, which are headlights that light up via a CR2032 Lithium button battery. Be sure to check out more photos and place a bid on Fallenkia's Custom Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Sideways figure over on eBay!
One thing that I love about new movies is that they provide customizers with a fresh canvas to create great works of art and collectibles. That brings me to MyCuztom's latest creation, which is a Custom Ultra Magnus Revenge of the Fallen Transformers custom. This figure is very well done and the colors used remind me of the G1 Ultra Magnus as that was pretty much a white version of Optimus Prime. To check out the full array of photos and to place a bid on this great figure, head over to eBay and check out MyCuztom's Custom Ultra Magnus Revenge of the Fallen Transformers figure.
The Transformers Revenge of the Fallen line is getting one more Decepticon thanks to DarkCaveCustoms. This Custom ROTF Shockwave figure is awesome and combines an updated look with the classic paint scheme of the G1 figure. The ROTF Leader Class Megatron is the perfect base figure for Shockwave and DarkCaveCustoms added his skills as a customizer to bring this figure to life!
I hope everyone had a great Christmas! This week, Zildjian has an awesome Custom Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Nemesis Prime figure. It is hard to believe that this used to be a ROTF Leader Class Optimus Prime figure but Zildjian has done such a great job with this figure. This is one of the most detailed Nemesis Prime's I have seen to date. I love the red, gold, and silver detailing as it is very well done. The figure is also wired with LED lights so you will have to head over to eBay and check out Zildjian's Custom Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Nemesis Prime figure to see him in all its glory.
It has been a while since Sabrina Ng has listed a custom on eBay but her latest G1 Transformers Optimus Prime is well worth the wait. Let's get up speed on what Sabrina has been up to:
"I had been practicing with new techniques and perfecting existing ones. Officially introducing Starburst Metallics. This breakthrough technique allows me to achieve a higher colour saturation as compared to conventional techniques. Trust me when I say that the custom looks way better in real life than what the pictures can say. Deeper and more virbrant hues regardless of the colour that I am using.
For this version of G1 Prime, I literally dropped his whole silver stripe concept and decided on giving him an updated look. I wanted Prime to look more majestic thus the gold chrome on the front of his truck. He was airbrushed, detailed, shaded, dry brushed, chromed, blue LED modded and protected by a special anti UV component."
Her introduction of Starburst Metallics is great news for the customizing community and for fans of her work. I thought she has her painting technique nailed down it is so great that she has perfected a new technique. You can check out her G1 Transformers Optimus Prime over on eBay or you can also check out her NEW website at sabrinasabrina.com to see all of her latest customs and also if you need commission work done, shoot her an email.
If you think back, Red Alert was one of those classic G1 figures that you will always remember and associate with the carefree times of the 80's. Hunter Knight Customs has made a version of this figure from a ROTF Sideswipe figure with his Custom Generation 1 Red Alert Revenge of the Fallen figure. With some of the figures in the ROTF line, I really liked the different ways that they moved around. For example, the Sideswipe figure rolls around as if on Rollerblades and Demolisher was more like a destructive unicycle as he tore about the city. I love the use of the Sideswipe mold here and the detail pays a nice homage to the Red Alert figure from the past. Head over to eBay and check out more photos of Hunter Knight Customs' Custom Generation 1 Red Alert Revenge of the Fallen figure.
What I love about BoskoesToys is that they are always striving to create new figures for toy lines and there latest Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Shockwave figure is no exception. I agree with Boskoes when they said it is a shame that Shockwave did not make it into the movie but if it did, Hasbro would have made a terrible figure so we need people like Boskoes to introduce old characters that did not get any screen time. The alternate mode is very interesting as they made this figure transform into a Power Station:
The new Leader ROTF Class Optimus Prime figure as a great upgrade from the previous 2007 movie version but Zildjian has upped the stakes with his Custom Transformers ROTF Optimus Prime figure that possesses many great features and stunning detail. The first thing that jumped out at me was the showroom finish paint aps that shows off Zildjian's talent. Attention to detail is a strong point for this custom so here are the finer points from Zildjian himself:
- High end House of Kolor Automotive metallic blue and red urethane paints.
- Alclad II mirror chrome finish on all robotic and chrome truck parts
- High quality vinyl decaled flames with hand painted silver trim.
- High end automotive clear coat finish.
- Multiple shades of Alclad silver, gunmetal, aluminum, copper and gold on all details
- Custom made gun with switch activated working high intensity white LEDs. LEDs and switch are hidden behind a sliding door on top of the gun. The batteries are replaceable.
- Each energy sword has switch activated dual red SMD LEDs and are removable from Prime's forearms. They connect within Prime's forearms with a rare earth magnet. They both also have easy access to the batteries to replace them.
- Upgraded chrome smoke stacks.
- Chrome side view mirrors.
- Chains and tractor trailer air brake connection wires on the back of the truck.
- Chrome hubcaps and single rubber front tires, and dual rear rubber tires. The tires DO NOT roll, they are fixed.
- Articulated hands.
- Blue LED in head replacing the green one.
As you can see, this Custom Transformers ROTF Optimus Prime figure is not only a beauty to look at but contains many features that make this Optimus a one of a kind.
DarkCaveCustoms has possibly one of the most creative uses of the Blackout figure I have seen to date with his Custom Revenge of the Fallen Shockwave figure. Curiously absent in the last two Transformers movies, DarkCave has solved this problem by making one of his own. What I like about this figure is that the G1 look and feel is still retained in the figure with the head sculpt and purple color. This figure would fit in nicely with either Generation 1 or movie lines. There are also subtle additions to the figure such as the chain gun that magnetically attaches. DarkCave takes many detailed photos so be sure to check them out over at his Custom Revenge of the Fallen Shockwave eBay page.
"Using two voyager class Fallens I have sliced, diced and spliced them together to achieve almost double the size." This says it all and Encline Design's Custom ROTF The Fallen figure is an engineering marvel. In order to get this figure movie accurate, Encline had to sacrifice the ability to transform the figure, which collector's will appreciate. Here to describe (in great detail), is Encline himself starring in his own video showing off his Custom ROTF The Fallen figure:embedded by Embedded Video
The scale and intricate detail on this figure is outstanding! To date, this figure ranks high on my list as one of the best custom Transformers I have seen. To view more photos, head over to eBay and check out Encline's Custom ROTF The Fallen figure.
The Human Alliance line of the new Revenge of the Fallen is an interesting concept that pairs Voyager Class figures with very small figure that fit in the vehicles. Xaviercal has switched up the paint scheme on his Custom Revenge of the Fallen Sideswipe figure from the silver version and has done a fantastic job applying a smooth, showroom metallic red finish. Not only are the paint aps stunning, he also has added a custom pair of blades and fashioned new hands to better hold additional weapons. The legs have also been modified to have more articulation to increase the poseability of the figure. The detailing on the head is very intricate and you can view this and more of the photos by heading over to eBay and checking out Xaviercal's Custom Revenge of the Fallen Sideswipe figure.
Frenzy.Rumble has an amazing opportunity for the custom Transformer aficionado and is offering up a very limited figure that he has applied his talent and skills to with his Custom Transformers Swerve figure. If you are not familiar with the figure, here is more about it from Wikipedia:
"A new mold that turns into a Chevrolet Aveo. Hasbro produced the toy at cost for Chevy as thanks for their successful partnership with the Movie franchise. It was designed for a promotional campaign in European markets, with the toys given away to people who took a test-drive of a real Chevy Aveo. The toys were never meant to be sold; a handful were left after the promotion had ended, and so they were shunted onto the website where these last few remainders very quickly sold out. This information was revealed by Hasbro executives at Botcon 2008. However, this figure is currently being given away at malls across the Greater Toronto Area as a promotion for GM's new contest. Upon entering, this is one of the free gifts they give you as a thank you. It was also spotted for retail at selected Wal-Mart locations in Canada."
Like all of Frenzy.Rumbles customs, he pours all of his skill into making these customs and it does not matter the scale. He also uses great judgment in deciding whether or not to modify the current figure and he was so impressed with the articulation and design from Hasbro that he chose not to modify this one. For more details, head over to eBay and check out Frenzy.Rumble's Custom Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Swerve figure.
It takes a keen eye and a ton of creativity to take a character who only got 3 minutes of airtime in a movie and turn him into an instant G1 classic figure. Jin Saotome has created this Custom Revenge of the Fallen G1 Kickback out of a Sideways figure and the result is simply amazing. From using the car windows as wings to the black, purple, and yellow color scheme, this figure can fit into either the G1 or the ROTF line with no problem at all! Let's read more about how Jin customized this one:
"Well he's back and deadlier than ever, transformed into the Insecticon Kickback! He has been painstakingly detailed by hand with a deep glossy black paint job, metallic highlights, brilliant shades of color, and intricate detail that will really make him stand out in your Transformers collection. Transform him or pose him any way you want, just take care when doing so as there a lot of moving parts to him. Kickback even has his trademark antennae but you can remove them if you want the slim-headed look"

The Fallen is still one of my favorite figures from the Transformers 2 movie and Frenzy.Rumble was worked his magic, skill, and expertise with this Custom Transformers ROTF The Fallen figure. The painting technique looks like this figure is glowing molten red. To see how Frenzy.Rumble achieves this look, here is a little more on the types of paint he uses:
"All paints used in the process were lacquer and enamel, so the finish is very durable, and the colors will stay vibrant and true for many many years. (Keep in mind, this is a collectible, so don't throw it around!) I finished him off with several finishes of Testor's clear coats, matte, semi-gloss, and gloss variations to keep the colors vibrant and true for years and years. I ensure the highest and most durable paint applications on all my customs. I exceed necessary preparation to these customs - Special plastic adhering primers, automotive grade lacquers and the best paints around to detail with."
The way the plastic was painted makes it look like metal. To view more photos, head over to eBay and check out his Custom Transformers ROTF The Fallen figure.
Boskoes is bringing some G1 style to the Revenge of the Fallen line with his Custom Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Galvatron figure. I really love the direction they took this figure as the paint aps are in the right places and they were able to salvage a mediocre Hasbro figure and turn it into a great piece that will fit nicely with your Revenge of the Fallen line. Let's hear more from Boskoes on how Galvatron was created:
"Definitely one of my favorite pieces we've done. We started out with a ROTF Leader Class Megatron and disabled the sound function so he no longer says " I am Megatron". We kept all the light up functions, which can still be activated by either pulling down the switch in his chest or by moving his giant arm cannon. As you can see we gave him a different head, but it has the exact same articulation as the Original Megatron head (still moves up 'n down and side to side- and eyes still light up). The only other mod we gave him is an exchangable arm which attaches easily, but fits on great and is very sturdy. Nothing we did here gets in the way of the original Transformation into Tank mode.
Lastly paint- we hit him with a mix of purple candy shell and a darker lightly metalic purple using raw silver for some well placed dings and scuffs. On his legs and treads we used a combo of flat and gloss grays, tinted primer, silvers coppers and rust. The list could go on for a bit, but I'll just leave it saying, I really really like the paint on this one."
Head over to eBay and check out more photos of Boskoes Custom Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Galvatron figure.
"The base figure is (of course) TFTM:ROTF ironhide. The head is from TFTM Incinerator, the fins are from the sword assembly from a Gundam Seed: Astray Blue Frame, the hand from a Gundam Seed: Destiny Legend Gundam (Rey Za Burrel: Worst Gundam Pilot ever) and the crane attachment is from an Energon Landmine fig."

We finally get a Voyager Class figure worthy of the figure and Metallichemist has done an excellent job making this Transformers Human Alliance Bumblebee look like it could belong in the movie. What I found odd about the movie was that the robots look dirty and dingy but when they transform into vehicles, they have a squeaky clean showroom shine. Metallichemist has done a great job with the detailing of this figure to give it depth and character. Here is how he describes his process: "Work done on BUMBLEBEE includes a full extensive repaint on the body with custom metallic paint to give a sense of weight.The completed paint job is scratched and brushed to achieve a worn out look that is fitting for the determined lieutenant battling against the Decepticons." Head over to eBay to view more photos!
Alphamagnus has used the 2007 Transformers Movie Starscream figure and created a great set of G1 coneheads for your collecting pleasure with Custom Ramjet, Dirge, and Thrust Revenge of the Fallen seeker line. If you are like any person who grew up in the 80's, the seeker jets were the toys to own and what a great way to blend the classic style of the G1 Transformer with the newer Revenge of the Fallen movie. Although I loved the concepts of the newer figures, they were always missing the classic feel and Alphamagnus has solved that issue. If you want to see more photos, head over to eBay!
UniqueToyz has a movie accurate take one of the coolest figures in the Revenge of the Fallen line with his Custom ROTF Ravage figure. Most of the Ravage's I have seen so far have had a G1 flavor to them but I really like the attention to detail the UniqueToyz has taken with this figure. This figure reminds me of a surreptitious Scorponok in the first Transformers Movie. The paint scheme really shows off the finer points of the figure and gives Ravage depth and character. Some of the G1 style customs of this figure often mute the details but the way this was painted makes them stand out. To see more photos and to place a bid on UniqueToyz Custom Revenge of the Fallen Ravage figure, head over to eBay!
Aside from Demolisher obliterating Japan in the opening scene of the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen, another high point in that sequence was from a dynamic duo inconspicuously disguised as an Ice Cream truck. LEK has taken the pitiful figure that Hasbro produced and created a movie accurate figure with his Custom Mudflap and Skids Revenge of the Fallen figure. Not only is this figure painstakingly painted, but the headlights illuminate for an extra effect. There are several photos of LEK's Custom Mudflap and Skids Revenge of the Fallen figure over on eBay so check them out!
One of my favorite military planes and also a great figure to add to the Revenge of the Fallen line, TK385 has brought this great concept of a figure to life with his Custom Revenge of the Fallen Jetfire figure. Not only does this figure have an excellent paint job, but it also has a special feature that I have not seen anyone do before. Here is TK385 to tell you more about this great effect:

A very cool figure to own! It can be yours by heading over to eBay and bidding on TK385's Custom Revenge of the Fallen Jetfire figure.
I have to admit, I was excited by the prospect of the Devastator figure when I heard about it but now seeing it in stores, I have to say I am not too impressed with it but Encline Designs has given me faith that this figure can look great with his Custom Revenge of the Fallen Devastator Supreme figure. There are many mods to this figure ranging from body, electronics, and paint. One of my favorite mods to the figure are the 2, 12 volt mini fans that can be installed inside his mouth to create the spinning vortex that tore everyone a new one!
For one of the best Devastators I have seen to date, head over to eBay and check out Encline Design's Custom Revenge of the Fallen Devastator Supreme figure.
There is something nostalgic about the G1 Devastator color scheme. Maybe it is because I remember crying myself to sleep on the floor of my parents bedroom when I was a little kid because they would not take me the toy store to get one but that is beside the point. It also could be because it was just a cool combiner that we all grew up with so I am going with that for now. Xaviercal captured this feeling with his Custom Revenge of the Fallen Generation 1 Devastator figure. I love the one unifying color scheme of this figure. The original figure has way too many colors, which mutes the overall look but Xaviercal has managed to capture that 1980's classic nature while applying a consistent color pallet that makes the individual parts stand out. This is a great figure and if you want to check out more photos, head over to eBay and check out Xaviercal's Revenge of the Fallen Generation 1 Devastator figure.
On the heals of Frenzy.Rumble's ROTF Devastator comes his Custom Revenge of the Fallen Jolt figure. What I love about Frenzy.Rumble's creativity is that he is always thinking of ways to make things better beyond a paint app. Here are some examples of this from his current figure:
- Head modified allowing it to have more range of movement
- Working dual "electro-whips" easily attach to back of figure with easy to access on/off buttons. The batteries are also easily changeable.
- Sparking light up chest - with transparent blue plastic; small button inside activates blinking light display (see video below for demonstration) Batteries are also accessible for change if ever needed.

It is great when customizers take figures in different directions and Dubz has done just this with his Custom Revenge of the Fallen Megatron version with rust. I always wondered how the Autobots and Decepticons can go from dirty and greasy in robot mode to showroom shine in alternate mode? This brings me to the rust version of Megatron that Dubz has made. If I was sitting at the bottom of the Ocean waiting for a gang of Decepticons to liberate me from my watery resting place, I would look in very bad shape. This version of Megatron is what he would look like if the Movie obeyed the laws of physics and chemistry. Dubz has plenty of photos over at his auction page and check out his Custom Revenge of the Fallen Megatron figure.
I know that fans are clamoring to get their hands on largest combiner to date in the Transformers Movie realm and Creg has this Custom Revenge of the Fallen Devastator up this week for your ogling pleasure. One of the funniest parts of the movie was when Agent Simmons was underneath this behemoth looking up at his nether regions and as a bonus, Creg has included optional wrecking "balls" to make this combiner movie accurate but you will have to head over to eBay and check them out for yourself!
It is not often that I see great figures come up again but Chris Morada has another Custom ROTF Leader Class Fallen Prime up this week. I originally wrote an article on this figure on June 25th so I am excited to see it again! This is still one my favorite concept figures and I love the photo above as it looks like Optimus is about to open a can of whoop ass on some unsuspecting bots.
It was only a matter of time before this behemoth of a Transformers hit the scene and I am happy to see that one of my favorite customizers taking on this challenge. If you follow Frenzy.Rumble on Twitter and put 2 and 2 together, you could have guessed that he was working this Custom Revenge of the Fallen Devastator Transformers figure. When Devastator formed in the movie, it was one of the highlights for me and it is great to see that Frenzy.Rumble has give each of the six figures his undivided attention to make this figure the work of art that it is. Some of my favorite parts of this custom are the added articulation in key areas and the ability for the vortex to stay open like in the movie. Make the jump to eBay to see Frenzy.Rumble's Custom Revenge of the Fallen Devastator Transformers figure in all its glory!
Jin Saotome is well known for his highly modded and detailed customs and his latest Custom Revenge of the Fallen Sideswipe is no exception. The paint aps are not only amazing, but he added extra hoses and even scratch built his blades to make them more movie accurate. This is one of the best Sideswipes I have seen to date from the ROTF line. Here is more details from Jin himself:
"He's been given the detail treatment folks, the paint job for my RotF customs is more complex than anything I've done before and includes airbrushed shading, weathered detail, blended shades of color, highlights, oil/grease splatter, metallic toning, and more. All this culminates to a super realistic look of a professional miniature model and Sideswipe is no exception here. Included are two new removable arm blades that look more like the ones he sports in the movie, cutting Sideways in half on screen. They are scratch built with sharp pointy tips so take care when attaching them. Various hoses and extra detailing has been added to Sideswipe including fixing his feet to look more movie accurate. He still stands just fine and you can adjust the heel-spurs in the back to allow him different sliding poses!"
If you are in to super accurate movie figures, head over to Jin's item and check out his Custom Revenge of the Fallen Sideswipe figure.
Just when you thought there was no Decepitcon more ruthless than Megatron...think again? Enter the supreme leader of the Decepticons and frogDNA has created a movie accurate version with his Custom ROTF The Fallen figure. There are times where I love customizers to be creative and run with a custom and make it thier own but in this case, I welcome the quest to get this figure movie accurate as the toy line lacks this aspect from the get go. Let's take a peak at how frogDNA retooled his head:
"This is how The Fallen should look like! The first thing I did was get rid of that skinny chinny face he had and totally resculpted his "mouth" and chin, I also added a pair of those blue fins on the sided of his face, for an even more accurate look, I also retooled his forehead (that slicked back forehead he originally had was driving me nuts!) aaaand, just for the coolness of it, I added a ball jointed neck! Plus, I filled all the screw holes."

I have always been a fan of Encline Designs and he has an Optimus Prime up this week that is awesome! His Custom Leader Class ROTF Optimus Prime is stunning.
