Warpath Brawl Redstorm Custom Transformers Figures by Chonosmoon

Warpath Brawl Redstorm Custom Transformers Figures

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."

Shattered Glass Optimus Prime Custom Transformers Figure by SonOfNemesis

SonOfNemesis takes the leader of the Autobots to the dark side with his Custom Transformers Shattered Glass War for Cybertron Optimus Prime figure.  Going the battle damaged and worn torn look, this figure feels like it was just in battle with several battle gashes and scrapes.  This Optimus looks like one mean S.O.B.  In addition to the roughed up metal, the figure was also painted with glow effects to represent an Energon flow, which makes it look like the lifeblood of his power is flowing through his veins (well, I guess they would be tubes, hoses, etc.).  If you flip the figure around, you will see a very cool glowing Autobot symbol that is nontraditional but it works well.  Typically the Autobot symbols are the regular ones you would find on figures but just done in purple like the Decepticon logo but SonOfNemesis is exercising his right to be creative and doing it differently, which I applaud.  This figure is fully transformable so if you want to view more photos of SonOfNemesis' Custom Transformers Shattered Glass War for Cybertron Optimus Prime figure, head over to eBay.

Omega Supreme Custom WFC Transformers Figure by Xaviercal

Custom Transformers WFC Omega Supreme

Go big or go home!  Xaviercal is taking that mantra to heart with his Custom Transformers WFC Omega Supreme figure.  Striving for a game accurate War for Cybertron color scheme, Xaviercal has gone above and beyond and created this figure with more detail than the actual game.  Here is some background on the figure from his creator:

"War for Cybertron Omega Supreme has being created by Planet X's PX-01 Genesis. Planet X's PX-01 Genesis: it one of best figure in personal view; is one of the most detailed and very accurate especially for its size and weight. This figure has more detail then the actual video game model. Omega transforms into a space craft as seen in the video game but also a secret base mode as well that represents G1 Omega launching rocket pad.  I have taken him completely apart every limb and section for the preparation for paint... I have completely repainted him inside and out to more game accurate colors scheme, and keeping with his video game feel of War for Cybertron. Everything has being detailed painted and extend panel lining into the red veins or black depending on the pieces. He is an amazing figure full of fun and is an awesome piece to any collection."

The colors on this figure truly make it a work of art.  You can tell that Xaviercal takes a lot of pride in his work and it shows.  He has even gone as far as filling in tiny paint details in some of the smaller groves of the figure, which bring out the richness and depth makes the figure pop!  There are more detailed photos on his auction page so head over to eBay and check out this amazing Custom Transformers WFC Omega Supreme figure.

 

Transformers War for Cybertron Corrupted Optimus Prime Custom by Speedlees

War for Cybertron Corrupt Optimus Prime

Deviating from the classic G1 paint scheme, Speedlees ventures into the realm of the 'what if' with his Custom War for Cybertron Corrupted Optimus Prime figure.  Imagine if Nemesis Prime got a hold of Optimus, but not fully, and was able to turn him into a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde type character where one half of of the figure is Optimus and the other half his Nemesis Prime.  Portrayed by one half of the figure taking on a red/blue color scheme and the other half taking on a green/purple scheme, Speedlees has achieved what nobody ever imagined...a corrupted Optimus Prime.  Who knows what is in store for the Autobots...only time will tell!

War For Cybertron Transformers Megatron and Soundwave Custom Figures by Hotwire Customs

It is a great achievement when customs bring out emotions and feelings and Hotwire Customs has achieved the feeling of combat and conflict with his latest customs.  When I think of war, I think of grit, grime, dirt, explosions, carbon, and soot and Hotwire Customs brings these feelings to fruition with his Custom War for Cybertron Megatron and Soundwave figures.  If you can imagine a time where machines are waging war against each other, oil and sludge would be spewing everywhere with each blast or each punch that was thrown and these figures bear the marks of veterans of a Cybertronian battle.  The weathering technique that was applied to these figures is some of the best I have seen, which makes them look like they are fresh from the video game.  The scoring and battle effects on the figures makes each part stand out and also makes the plastic appear like metal, which is a very cool aspect to achieve.  Hotwire tells me that he has War for Cybertron Autobots on the way too and if they are as great as these figures, I can't wait to see what he has in store!

Soundwave War for Cybertron G1 Transformers Custom by FrogDNA

Soundwave is the Decepticon's Communication officer and is best known for his distinctive, monotone, computerized voice.  FrogDNA has given this Generations figure a G1 makeover with his Custom War for Cybertron Soundwave figure.  Using matte enamels to get that cartoon look, FrogDNA has really captured the feeling of that square micro cassette recorder we all loved as kids.  It is amazing how the paint and technique applied to a figure can turn a dull looking Hasbro figure into this:

You will also notice one of Soundwave's reconnaissance cassettes in the photo above and FrogDNA has scratch built Laserbeak to complete this awesome custom.  To view more photos of this Custom War for Cybertron Soundwave figure, head over to eBay!

Lek has been very busy cranking out the customs and they just keep getting better and better.  I love the Transformers War for Cybertron figures as they bring to life a planet that we do not know a lot about and it is cool to see the concepts and figures that are drawn for this robotic world.  Lek has made this Custom Transformers Bumblebee War for Cybertron figure pretty dead on to the games version.  The weathered metallic paint gives Bumblebee that embattled look.

Lek's figure also glows in the dark so check out his Custom Transformers Bumblebee War for Cybertron figure to see that cool effect!

With the Autobots and Decepticons engaged in a civil war, a new figure is created by Steve's Customs to help Megatron control the Dark Energon that he craves so much.  Using a WFC Optimus Prime, this Custom Transformers War for Cybertron Nemesis Prime is painted in a very cool style using gun metal black, aluminum, and steel colors with the accents in teal.  The accessories are what have drawn me to this figure as they are very unique.  The sword and shield is a cool concept as it gives the figure a Gladiator look.  If you remember the Transformers Menasor Warrior post I over 3 years ago, I really love concepts that reference historical points in time.  Steve's figure also gives me that feeling and it is original concepts like this that add so much personality to the figures.

Galvatron War for Cybertron G1 Transformers Custom by Jin Saotome

Galvatron War for Cybertron G1 Transformers Custom

Adding to the War for Cybertron series, Jin Saotome resurrects this Custom G1 Galvatron done in Generation 1 styling.  Not appearing in the line up for the game, this figure is sure to be very sought after.  The colors really pop on this figure, especially the deep purple.  The scoring and weathering makes the figure look like he is fresh from battle.  The G1 coloring is a throw back to the 80's Galvatron, with the addition of the large orange canon, the signature weapon of Galvatron.  What I really like about this figure is that no single body part seems to blend together as Jin has paid great attention to detail to ensure that each part of Galvatron stands out.  Let's read more from Jin himself about this cool figure:

"From the gaping maw of Unicron comes the most feared Decepticon ever, Galvatron! But this time he's been done in the War for Cybertron series. Galvatron has been handed painted with deep shading, intricate robotic detail, weathered highlights, and sharp colors that will really have him stand out in your collection. He transforms into a space cannon we all know and love but also has wheels to act as a tank or hover treads. Check out his giant metallic cannon! It's ready to blast a hole in any Autobot...or Decepticon that gets in his way. You can also store his cannon on his back or swap arms."

In canon mode, the figure looks fierce and any Autobot in its way will get blasted to oblivion.

Blaster is one of my favorite Transformers from the 80's and FrogDNA has taken a War for Cybertron Soundwave figure and turned it into this awesome Custom G1 Transformers WFC Blaster figure with Steeljaw and Eject.  There is no mistaking this figure as the classic Blaster boasts the large bright yellow tape deck front with the large Autobot symbol on the front.  Add the signature oversized gun and you have an updated version that will go great with your War for Cybertron collection.  For those who grew up in the 80's, we listened to music on these archaic tapes, which for me, that always seemed to get tangled and mangled in the decks they were played from.  Although this figure looks like the classic character in robot form, the alternate mode takes a very cool form of a futuristic car, which I am sure blasts awesome music while driving over the terrain of Cybertron.  Add Blaster's companions Steeljaw and Eject and you have a great set from the 80's.

Transformers War for Cybertron is a third person shooter that was released this year and Speedlees Customs has translated the leader of the Decepticons from the video game into this killer Custom War for Cybertr on Megatron figure.  What is great about this figure is that the paint aps look like metal and the colors look like the video game version.  Along with the paint aps looking very realistic, the colors have a weathered, battled look to them.  Here is a close up shot:
