More TF kitbashing time [Oct. 28th, 2007|08:16 pm]

Been doing this one on and off for the past few weeks, and well, he's finally done.



First, again, a bit of history for the uninitiated. I took this toy, Nemesis Prime:







He was quite a heavily touted toy, being a San Diego Comics Convention exclusive and all that. He's essentially the Optimus Prime Dodge Ram toy, but he's EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVIL. Frankly, I thought he was very overrated, but bought him just for bragging rights, as he was available everywhere in Singapore despite being rare in the US.

Was a bit of a waste, as I rarely played with him at all. Until I decided to turn him into someone else.





Namely, good ol' Trailbreaker here (the black bloke transforming). Some head swapping, sawing (I <3 my new dremel) and gluing later, and here we go:










"What we need is a forcefield!!!"


Aaaaaaaaaand.. that's about it. Trailbreaker is done and has a spanking new toy of himself. So yay!

Cool. I did the same thing with Nemesis Prime except I used the Reprolabels and didn't do his head. No painting because I suck at painting.

Indeedy! The black ram fits TB so well, it's a shame it was wasted on Prime and Nemesis Prime.

I actually didn't use paint for the visor or the windshield. Coloured sharpies work extremely well, it's pretty much just colouring a picture.
