War For Cybertron Optimus Prime Custom Repaints (Metal and Shattered Glass Ver.)


Okay...another set of customs I did for a friend.

The War For Cybertron toyline was a pretty good series. Namely the big bot himself, Optimus Prime. Sadly he came in deluxe sized which in my opinion was a waste.

Okay, so a friend came to me and asked to commission metallic versions of the big ol' bot. Now, as a customiser who rarely does metallic finishes, this was kinda like a challenge. (Furthermore I have a few other commissions that requires me to do metallic finishes...heh.)

So...after some trials and bottles of paints...I finally found the particular ones I like the most. So here it is...

 Okay...more to come soon!

Cheers everyone!

3rd Party KFC Citizen Stack Custom Repaint (Ultra Magnus)


It's been awhile. So let's just skip the pleasantries and get to it!

So I received a 3rd party Transformers from a friend to repaint. It's from KFC Toys (not the finger lickin' good company okay...), called Citizen Stack or more apt, Ultra Magnus. Now the plastic and design is pretty good...decent you might say. But I do have some complaints on the head tho. Luckily my friend manage to grab another headsculpt from another company which is far better than the original.

Now the name of course was pretty interesting, I didn't understood it initially but then I remembered the voice actor for Ultra Magnus in the 1986 Transformers Movie. So I guess it makes sense now...heh.

Okay, so what did I do? First of all did some test run on the colors. I didn't like the dark blue of the original and opt for a lighter blue like the cartoon version but slightly darker like the IDW comic version. Highlighted some details and got rid of all that icky blings.

So here it is.

So there you have it folks! Stay tuned for more custom works from RK Designs Studio.

Yeah...I'm back.
