Son of Kwinn Custom based off of unused artwork!

blueboardN Joe Custom Critques Facebook user Felix Stratton (Mercer is that you? ) has created the first custom (that I’m aware) based off the images released by Sam Wells right here on Nerdrahtio.

See them mirrored below (with permission) /home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/e43/44850936/files/2015/01/img_6224.jpg

Felix says it’s still a WIP in progress, and we look forard to the finished result, but it looks great already!


Here is the original art (we believe is from Draxhall Jump)

below to compare it too:



This custom came to my attention via the Joe Customs Critique FB group. You should check them out.

UPDATE: more images!

The G.I.Joe Millennium Falcon? (an amazing custom by Jeremy Hill found on Universal Joes)

gi-joeI was floored when I first saw this and I had to share it. Check out the images shared below (with permission) of Jeremy Hill’s amazing G.I.Joe Millennium Falcon. He posted Here on Universal Joes a closed G.I.Joe FB page of which I am member (and you should join too, if for no other reason than tell Jeremy how cool this is)

5 Transformers (photoshoped) I wished actually existed! (and a bonus)

autobot06_transformersAMERICANFLAG02I grew up with the original Transformers, often called Generation 1 or “G 1” today.  When Optimus and Megaton had their epic duel in the animated movie, i was riveted and emotional exhausted by the outcome. As an 80’s kid, that movie was my Hamlet, and the show in general was often my philosophy class as well (“Freedom is the right of all sentient beings.”)

I’m not the only one, and the internet has been kind enough to take it’s photoshop skills and propose some excellent Photoshopped crossover transformers that I deeply want. In Advance i want to say these aren’t my work and that i have collected them from image sites, or message boards over the years, and if you know who made them, let us know!

#5 + 4 BatBotmobiles

740086_403389586413597_202539700_oThe Tumbler looks like it could fit right into a Bay’s take on transformers, even in vehicle mode. The classic look is a little more my style with a slight flair of color to make it pop.
what i’d really love to see his a mock up of one from the Keaton movies.  Why should Marvel have all the fun transformer crossovers anyways?

# 3 Spock Prime

trek-formersOh the beauty! It’s made even better knowing that Leneord Nimory also forced Galvatron for the original animated movie, and Sentinel Prime in Dark of the Moon.  I’d buy it in a heart beat, and Hasbro even has the Star Trek License at the moment!

# 2 Hound as a G.I.Joe Vehicle

houndxoverSorry it’s not real.  Although i wish Hasbro would steal this idea. For a few years now Hasbro has been making Joe scale vehicles that are actually transformers in disguise, so far it’s only been Decepticons (Starscream, Shockwave, a little Megatron gun, and the Soundwave boom box w/ tapes) While they don’t transform it’s an excellent crossover for fans of both properties. Optimus prime could possibly be done with one of the larger vehicles, but it would look out of place, Hound however? He fits perfectly, give him Clutch the original Joe driver and grease monkey and we are good to go.

#1 the Tardis Transformed

tardistransformerWord’s can’t express the awesome, it just needs a little fez! I’d buy one in a heartbeat! Okay Hasbro UK, you even had a UK original transformers comics, get to cracking on working out a deal here.

And lastly a bonus:

My little robony.

1351838971116I can’t say that i’d be the one to purchase this, but i know friends who would, and shockingly there are several of these floating around. Hasbro owns the rights, maybe it’s time to draw some girls into the transformer fandom?

Let us know what you think of these dream TFs, as well as any photoshoped images you may have found on our forums HERE.  Or Join the the general transformers talk in the Transforum section of our forums.
