Hi All, I have been very busy with work and I have not been around much. Here is my newest Transformer custom. These are the Technobots and they form the super robot Computon. He stands between 15 and 16 inches tall. Custom paint and full articulation. He was made by Black Rod Customs in Hungary. Enjoy !!!
I never owned any transformers myself, but I know they were super popular in the 80's. Neighbour kids had them, I had mainly He-Man stuff. Anyway, this thing seems like a huge! Is it just custom painted factory transformer or completely DIY custom?
Wow man! That is really cool! You telling me that is 100% custom and not made or factory designed? If so that is a trip and super cool!
Each figure is "kit bashed" so to speak. Parts of many different figures were put together and customized so no figure was just pulled from a box and painted up. I'd say it is 94% custom made.
Hammill82: He's pretty big copared to some of the other customes I have and way bigger than the 80's version of the original Computron. I'm currently working on a custom Devastator who will be between 18 and 20 inches tall.

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
