BMOG has posted a press release to celebrate their own Trent Troop hitting a singular milestone: in the few months since Titans Return hit stores, Trent has designed one hundred
replacement faceplates for Titan Masters! With inspiration from across the Transformers brand to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Masters of the Universe and even the Sogmaster from Cap'n Crunch, there's a wealth of new head options for your Titans Returns bots that will set you back as little as $5 each on Shapeways. Keep reading for the press release and a link to Trent's store!
The Omochasouko blog has posted images of a nifty custom: Combiner Wars Hot Spot as G1 Headmaster Hosehead! ...okay, technically Headmaster Jr. Cab, but there's no physical differences between the two. The Headmaster itself was carefully customized from Titan Master Skytread, using plastic sheet and plastic pipe to adapt the face to Cab/Hosehead's design. There's a nice new chestpiece as well! Keep reading to see all the photos.
Twitter user @Smokingray7775 has done what RAC had hoped to see done: made a full-on custom Deluxe-sized Brawn out of the Titan Master and Combiner Wars Deluxe Hound! Mounting the Titan Master vehicle as a gun in Vehicle Mode and using a small hole drilled in the torso as a mount for the Titan Master, this is the most complete take on the idea we've seen so far, and requires no permanent changes to the Titan Master itself, retaining full functionality! Keep reading to have a look.
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.
Where to start with this amazing custom by Twitter user @omochasouko02? Not only did they create an all-new torso for Combiner Wars First Aid, not only did they create a cockpit for the Titan Master and make a custom socket for Titan Master Nightbeat to serve as Minerva's head, but they also replaced the wonky Nightbeat face with something better, possibly a Generations Arcee face.

...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!
When asked about the possibility of Alligaticon Optimus Prime - the gator drone made from Optimus Prime's body in the G1 episode City of Steel
- Hasbro's design team responded along the lines of "why not make your own?" And a Japanese fan has done just that! Converting the just-released Titans Return Deluxe Skullsmasher to Optimus Prime, @ny_chatnoir has done a really nice job on the toy. Keep reading to see the images mirrored here!
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!
Modified Ninja on Facebook has posted numerous photos of a custom project to turn the Combiner Wars Wheeljack - already virtually a blank canvas - in to Exhaust, the character built around the Diaclone 'Marlboro' Wheeljack deco that caused so much legal trouble as a Masterpiece.
While this would fare no better as a retail product, we think it's a good show of more innovative character choices that could have been - and perhaps held off mold fatigue a bit longer. Click through to see some mirrored photos and a link back to the full original Facebook album!
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.
Twitter user KlejpullCustom has debuted his new account with an image of his spectacular custom of Megatron as seen in IDW's More Than Meets The Eye!
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.
Twitter user Herakuwa has posted images of a really impressive Combiner Wars custom Raiden! Using Hot Spot as the torso and the Blades/Alpha Bravo mold for the limbs, Herakuwa has also incorporated Million Publishing Shouki as the sixth member of the team.This dedication becomes perhaps even more impressive when you consider that none of the Combiner Wars figures are even available in Japan yet, meaning that all of the components except Shouki had to be imported. Keep reading to see!
I took the Generations Roadbuster figure and added a 3D printed head, the rifle from a 1/60 Gundam Wing Zero figure and cobbled together his mini-gun from my junk bin and viola! The old guy looks good! Thanks for looking. Also up on eBay.
TFormers Forums user Gikpa
has done a slick photoshoot showing off a creative use or three for Powerglide on his custom Ultra Prime! In addition to making a pretty dynamic chest plate for Voyager Optimus Prime, he makes a pretty good missile rack on each shoulder and bulks up the torso even more. Later in the spread a couple of Blackjacks and some custom jointed hands get thrown into the mix as well - keep reading for the photos!
Wheeljack enters the fray of post-apocalyptic Transformers with his deadly toolset and weaponry. He was created from a DOTM Topspin mold, Generations Wheeljack head/lower arms, and various fodder parts. He has a Gatling gun, chainsaw rifle, tendril saw, and wheel cutter that can be attached to him in robot mode or alt mode. Drift's twin swords were modded so Wheeljack would have something to slice and dice with should his tools not be enough to take down some Decepticon baddies. One rust-weathered-sponge paint job later, Wheeljack was ready to roll!
