Computron is the second combiner to have dedicated hands and feet - Victorion being the first - but unlike Victorion there's no particularly elegant way to store those hands and feet on the team leader. But you do have some options! We'll take a look at the new parts and what you can do with them after the jump.

The Polish artist boasts that no part of the figure is 3D printed and that it's hand-made and fully accurate to the comic. We've no reason to doubt that claim, and it looks great besides! Keep reading to see for yourself.

Built this one to try and get back into customizing. It's a 1/24 Nissan 280Z re-shelled onto the Alternators Jazz mold. It's intended to scale with the MP-01 size class or the Alternators line. Check out the images for Transformers Custom Masterpiece Smokescreen 1/24 by Wikkid in the gallery below.

Rack 'n' Ruin were created using a combination of two Gundam MSJ-06II-A Tieren Ground types in 1/144 scale and 3D prints of components I designed. The Paints are ModelMaster. The main green used is Olive Drab with some Dark Green and some Green Zinc Chromate. Rack'n'Ruin are Transformers from G1 who were surgically combined in a desperate attempt to save their lives. Check out more details and images for the Transformers G1 Rack'n'Ruin by Wheeljack-S70.
I used the head of hero Megatron on G2 Dreadwing, and it fit perfectly! They have the same plug and screw system to attach the head... like they were meant for each other. The idea came to me from the IDW comics, that use a Megatron mold that transforms into a flying wing kind of plane. I remembered reading that Hasbro wanted to repaint Dreadwing into Megatron at the end of the G2 line and never did. The rest is history... Check out the images for more details.
I was lucky enough to get asked to work on one of Dawgstars Amazing Masterpiece Bombshells,he Built it i just slapped some paint on the beast & built him a shoota! This has been a serious blast working on this collaboration & it's going to be a shame to say goodbye to him when he hits ebay.
Painted with Vallejo Acrylics. Check out the full gallery of images for Transformers Masterpiece Bombshell Custom to see all the details on this wonderful creation by Dawgstars and Spurt Reynolds after the jump.
Inspired by Nick Roche and Josh Burcham's work in Last Stand of the Wreckers, Ironfist was created using DOTM deluxe Ratchet and 3D prints (head, mid-section, and fists) that I created and destrongerlupus helped me test. I also did a minor mod to the ratchet figure to help widen his chest and show more of his arms. Paints involved a black primer with Model Master's "Fabric Tan" spray and brush on Model Master's "Cobalt Blue" enamel and Floquil Railroad Colors "Up Light Orange". Check out the full gallery after the jump.
Thanks to the Planet Iacon - Singapore Transformers Fans Unite!! (S.T.F.U!!) group who have shared a very cool image of a Custom Heroes of Cybertron figure named Optimus Prima.

Check out the Optimus Prima custom figure after the jump in all her glory.
TheBoog17 of Deviant Art has posted something new and different. Behold the Evil Robot Organization Engagement Ring! The Decepticons and diamonds come together for holy matrimony. The setting of this ring was custom made for a customer using a 3Design CAD CAM software to make a cast in 14k white gold. The setting is designed to look like the symbol of an evil robot organization. The mask setting is two sided, and the prongs holding the Moissanite gemstone in place are the robot's horns. Check out the full details on the ring after the jump.
