...along with a little help from Galvatron. It was inevitable: Grimlockimus, AKA @ChromeTyranno, has posted images to Twitter of a custom Skullsmasher done up as Beast Wars Megatron. Not the one from the series, though: this is based on the Alligator Megatron released in a 2-pack with Bat Optimus Primal. Will we see a followup when Mindwipe is released? Here's hoping, but in the meantime keep reading to see Megatron!
With Hasbro so far uninterested in observing the 20th anniversary of Beast Wars, fans seem to be taking matters in to their own hands. Following from the Dinobot made out of Generations Springer we highlighted yesterday, we have a custom Silverbolt by Javier Alvarez. Made from Beast Hunters Grimwing, this calls back to a 2014 poll held by Million Publishing to decide on a future Generations
book exclusive toy. Of course this Silverbolt has a lot more work in it than a new coat of paint! Keep reading to check out this fine piece of work!
A Twitter user by the name of Suguring has posted an image of a custom Dinobot figure to Twitter! Made from the Generations Voyager-class Springer mold, the figure seems to sport a Henkei Dinobot head - which going by current aftermarket prices makes it a pretty expensive custom! The shield is borrowed from the Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Deluxe Ratchet Figure. Keep reading to have a closer look!
A customizer who goes by @yasuu22 on Twitter has posted images of their take on BotCon 2016's Magnaboss figure - and you can definitely say it's an upgrade! Going well above and beyond the mere sticker sheets for the retail versions of Silverbolt, Prowl, and Ironhide, yasuu22 has given each of the three a full Beast Wars makeover! Keep reading to see the mirrored images.
This was a commissioned piece. Optimus Primal is ultra class (larger one) and the original version. Few things bugged me about the figure, so I did my best to improve those. To begin with, the original figure only had fists, and when in Gorilla/alt mode, those fists weren't facing a convincing direction. I added articulated, rotating hands. I also gave his robot mode working LED eyes, with easy-access batteries located on the back. Lastly, I gave Optimus a pair of cool swords, c/o Movie Leader Prime.
