Thanks guys for giving me this.* I appreciate it.*
To me kitbashing and customizing**are an art form.* The TF community lost a great museum when TFmaster's Transtopia fell*( Hopefully a little of his work will find itself here).**
Creating a robot from your mind is an amazing art.* I have made some and if i ever get them back*from my ex-wife I will post them. It is*showing others what we see in our head and allows us to really show our fandom appreciation.*
At times we will see bots here that will floor us and make Hasbro and Takara look bad. Other times we will*see the work of new artists.* Lets not stifle a young TF Leonardo* or Michelangelo.* Lets give and inch and see others shine.
Well 1st what is what? Try to*decide what is what*before you post.
Custom- (AKA Scratch built) Very few or no mold parts come from an existing TF figure.*You can use outside the line or use your own material but it is mostly*non tf material (using a head or Alternator hands on a toy but nothing else tf makes it a custom).*
Kitbash-Lots of changes. It can be a new mold with dramatic changes to the mold.* You have to use existing tf parts but*they do not have to be all from the same figure.
Retool- The figure has had some modification.* Not alot of change exists but there is a different head, hand or parts added or removed.
Repaint- The figure mold does not change but is instead a new colour. He can even be a new robot.
Digibashing- This is like repainting however it is done with a picture and computer.
Try to use*the appropiate defination*in your subject title to help people when viewing.**Take care.
Again thanks for putting this up Dread.
Have to ask, whats with all the asterix's?!
