Generation 1
Masaume's Devastator Model: Make Your Own!
jack - Friday, April 04, 2003

Mad Modeler Masamune is a top notch model builder who's made some really impressive models - not out of plastic, but paper. His model subjects are things like Gundam robots, cartoon characters such as the Power Puff Girls as well as other popular cartoon/robots including the Transformers!

The one that will really "meet" your eye is his Devastator model. The thing is HUGE and very detailed for being made out of paper. What's more, is he's made it up into a model kit with printer templates you can use to make your own Devastator. Thanks to Masamune, now you can download the Devastator 1.0 Model templates and instructions here for free (see about the model kit below).

Masamune "Mad Modeler" Washington on his Models

I have a transforming Omega Supreme in testbuild/revision. Designing these things takes many long months, be patient. There are working sketches for Optimus, Ultra Magnus, Arcee (she's neglected I HAVE to design a model of her), and Starscream. This all started a little over a year ago when I found the MYOTF site, and built a few. A coworker dared me to do better (we aerospace technical designers strive for excellence); he now has a Devastator standing on his desk.

For those who need more when Devastator is back online, I have hako-clones (when my website does return from the tomb of traumatized data). Hako-clones are simplified/super-deformed characters easy enough for anybody to build. I have a good portion of 1st season TFs there with another appearing every few months.

I'm sorry to tell everyone that Transformers are only one of my many many interests. I have a Gundam in design that is being begged for now (I need TIME people, chill it!), a series of my own custom robots, Neon Genesis EVA cyborgs, and methods to start designing somewhat more curved figures (wink-wink).

I hope this introduction gets many of you hooked on this form of modeling and check out two good sources for other models:

Most paper models are tanks and military aircraft, but there are many other subjects in smaller quantities out there. There are also other fantastic models designed by us (those few of us who do design) on - Paper Models.

More Generation 1 News
Looks like the Autobot leader will be joining this year's Hallamark holiday tree ornaments offering this year. We knew about the Soundwave and Last Knight Hot Rod, but the addition of the Generation 1 styled Optimus Prime is a little bit of a surprise, literally. As this one seem to be scaled down a bit from the previous edition.
Imaginarium Art posted a new teaser to Facebook for a future statue project, keeping up a constant pace of releases under development. The newest subject of their attention? Why, none other than Galvatron! The silhouette is unmistakable, and it may imply an interesting display base. Galvatron's shadow is planted atop the shape of Cybertron, so the resulting display piece may itself be Galvatron standing atop the planet. Unknown right now when we'll see more out of this development, but the prototype stage ought to be interesting when they're ready to share it!
Imaginarium recently shared a shot of the upper body of their upcoming Devastator statue, showing off the general styling and detail level. Tonight they've continued downward, revealing the lower half of the body with a look at the legs and a considerable chunk of the base environment the statue stands on. Sadly these are not separate cuts of the same image in order to piece them back together - or I would have - but you can still get a good sense of the overall product between them. Click through for the mirrored image!
Three A, makers of high end - and high price - action figures including a range of licensed Transformers figures has revealed a new entry tonight, exclusive to ThinkGeek. Ultra Magnus is a redeco of the Optimus Prime figure, naturally in the unarmored cab-robot form. Its features are more or less the same as the Optimus figure it's derived from, including basic accessory loadout. ThinkGeek's price is just about $400 and they're accepting orders for the new Ultra Magnus right now. Click through to see the promo photos and a link to the product page.
Pop Culture Shock Collectibles is pleased to announce we have now secured a licensing agreement with Hasbro Inc. We are excited about the opportunity to team with Hasbro in creating collectibles based on characters from properties like TRANSFORMERS, DUNGEONS & DRAGONS, MAGIC: THE GATHERING, G.I. JOE and MY LITTLE PONY to name a few. Stay tuned for further details!
