Custom of the Week: Generation 1 Runabout and Runamuck by frenzy_rumble
Garage Mod - Tuesday, May 19, 2009


Transformers Garage is on the look out for the best custom / kitbash to feature each week here and in the Transformers Garage Hall of Fame section. This week's featured custom is Generation 1 Runabout and Runamuck by frenzy_rumble.

"Ever since I saw the [Transformers Classics Bumblebee] mold, I thought 'classic G1 Runabout (Black) and Runabout (White)," he tells us.

"2 of my favorites as a kid, these battlecharger twins were on my list of 'has to get done one day' and [are] finally off that list. "These guys were pretty much a straight repaint, however I did some work to them; added some articulated hands, custom heads (cast G1 Trailbreaker) and removed the tow hitch on their back. The head was a nightmare getting it trimmed to fit in alt mode."

"The paint on Runamuck is a pearl/iridescent white, and Runabout is a metallic flake black which is also iridescent (in certain angles it's green, red, or blue)."

Take a look at the full gallery in the customs and kitbashes gallery.

Want to see your Transformers custom featured on TFormers Custom of the Week? Just post your custom gallery to Transformers Garage. If we think yours is the best one of the week, we will feature it here and add your name and custom to the Hall of Fame.

looks really awesome, however those big ugly seams on the back of the hands ruin the clean finish on the figures!

Very nice work! Was the head for Universe Runamuck too big? That said, I can't see the duo as mere hatchbacks, however "sporty" they appear to be. I see them as pure sports cars.
