Face Sculpt

Face of Star Saber has been retooled. The sides of the "helmet" have been trimmed to give it a leaner look. And the face plate was also re-sculpt to give it a sharper look.

More updates coming up soon. Stay Tuned.

Star Saber

For Star Saber, I wil be retooling the face, to give it a sharper look.

Hip plate will also be made "Swingable" to allow more thigh movement.

Knee joints would also be added to improve the posability.

Elbow joint will also be worked on to allow swinging outwards.

Wrist joint will also be added.

So Stay Tuned...

Victory Leo

Changes I will try to make:

1. Extend the wings on both end. and allow "folding" like the original

2. Knee joints will be added.

3. And possibly retool the face.. If i can, it's pretty small actually.

Next Project: Victory Saber

I have always been a fan of Star Saber and Victory Leo. However, I can't say the same of the Robot master interpretation.

Star Saber has a face that looks too fat for him. absense of hip and knee joints gives him a huge discount in the posability department., His arms has limited posability too.

Victory Leo, was on the whole a much better toy. However, his face sculpt makes him look like a kid or worse a monkey. And the lack of knee joints was pretty disappointing.

When they merge to form Victory Saber. The biggest problem I have was his puny wings. And Even the original version looks much better in proportion than this. Isn't it suppose to be an improvement ? The complaints goes on.....

Recently, my brother was trying display "him" in his cabinet, I just couldn't stand looking at it.. and not do anything.

I just have to do something to it.

In the next few weeks I will be posting my progress on my work on my custom Victory Saber.
Do check back for updates

More of ARCEE

She is such a babe. And this transformer was so well designed that not only does she looks great in Vehicle mode and Robot mode. she can be posed in ways you never expect a Transformer to.

And to give it a more femine posablility. I ball jointed the wrist as well.

Wanted to see more of it? check back again.

Head Master ARC

Almost a year ago I bought a model kit from Rapid Squirrel's, I must say it was a fantastic model kit considering is entirely hand sculpt. The effort putting into the making and designing the kit is top notch. not to mention about how talented the scuplter is..
However, quality control was alittle short of desired. Nonetheless, a wonderful work.
Being a perfectionist ( well... only in some aspects) I just have to give my own input.

1. Re-sculpt Daniel the head master
2. Re-tool ARC's face to give it more symmetry
3. Remold some parts in general to full up the uneven surface... and some other modifications..
which i will post in the next few days...

Though it no longer news... I just want to showcase this wonderful work of art by the sculpter. And tribute the the most beautiful Transformers.. never made..


Another day has gone, I just got a can of Mr. Air for my airbrush and some paints today. However, I am hoping to have Swoop its deserving anime colour tomorrow's evening after I return from work..
Here's how it should look like after he recieve a new coat of paint. See above
Please check back see..

Anime accurate G1 Dinobot Swoop?

A great friend of mine, contacted me sometime back, asking if I would help him with his Swoop repaint. I was like Wow.. I am both honoured and flattered.. at the same time uncertain.

I mean.. Man its one of the rarest G1 around and one of the most sort after Dinobots.
And he wanted to put his precious in my hands? I was like.. Hope I will not let him down.. and risk his Swoop turning it into poop..

Anyhow, he handed his swoop over to me to day.. I wish he is not regretting... Hahahah...
He wanted me to repaint it to give it a little more anime accurate... If this was mine.. I would have go ahead wth a resculpt in his head and give the arms and legs a little more articulation.. but well like I said.. Its not mine..

So here's a pics of how the original Swoop looks like if you havent seen one. :/

Custom your very own Transformers

Welcome to my world of Custom Transformers.

One of the biggest grouses of a Transformers collectors, in particular Generation 1, is that the actual toy differs so much from its animation counter parts, Their proportion is so off, and they are as stiff as blocks. Their heroic characters in the animation is translated into.. such boring toys.

They just don't do the characters justice.

Over here, I would like to share some of my customs as well as other's efforts in making thier heros comes alive with the dignity they deserve.
