Paints, Repaints and Kitbashes, Oh My!
Transformers Quickbashes

Page split up, this retained for anyone who has it bookmarked.
This page is for my Transformers Quickbashes. These are little projects that didn't take a whole lot of time or effort, but most do still transform (except for a few accessories and a PVC or two) and I felt were worth showing off. Sometimes they're just repaints, or adding an ink wash, other times they involve really simple physical mods. Within a section, the order is mostly just chronological...I probably should split this into sub-pages at some point.

  • Paint Touchups - Same character, just better.
  • Repaints - No physical changes, but a new character.
  • Minor Modifications - Compensating for design issues, fan altmodes, etc.
  • Lesser Kitbashes - Some physical mods and serious repainting, but it didn't take a lot of work.
  • 3-D Printed - Original figures made via 3-D printer and then assembled/painted by me (no longer just Shapeways).

3-D Printed

   Shapeways is a company that got some nice 3-D printers (the kind that cost as much as a small house, not the $1000 makers) and makes money by printing designs submitted to them. A lot of Transformers fans use it to make weapons or new hands, but a few have taken the challenge of making entire figures, including little minions that will fit in the chest of War for Cybertron Soundwave. I suppose these could count as "Lesser Kitbashes" or "Minor Mods" or even just paint jobs, but I'm gonna give them their own category. With the addition of Titans Return faceplates from Trent Troop's Prize Inside, I started spending more money on Shapeways. I'm slowly expanding to 3-D printing services other than Shapeways, though, so I've renamed the category.

   Faceplates: Some of these are actually modified official ones that I had leftover from other projects, but I want to keep all the Titan Master/Prime Master modifications in one place, even the stuff that might count as "Lesser Kitbashes". The Shapeways faces come from Trent Troop's Prize Inside store.
