Jin Saotome's Custom TF Gallery

Jin Saotome has got to be one of my favorite TF customizers out there. He does some totally amazing work, and he does A LOT of it. I highly recommend checking out his archive of Transformers Customs. You'll have to scroll down past the Marvel customs, but it TOTALLY worth it. This guy even incorporates custom electronics into his custom transformers creations! We wouldn't normally do this, but seeing as he created a custom live action style UNICRON figure from scratch, se we figured we better at least showcase that figure here! Definitely go visit his site. It's awesome!

Various Beast Machines Alterations

BHens14@aol.com has made some great kitbashes of Beast Machines characters: Jetstorm, Night Scream, Silverbolt, Tankor, Thrust, & TM2 Megatron.


What's the biggest complaint everyone has about Armada Megatron? His totally unposable legs. Well, Jason fixed that... The joints that were used were the knee and swivle joint attached to the upper leg from Tigatron, the lower leg portion of the knee and the sockets for the hips are from DepthCharge, and the balls for the sockets are from Rampage. This alteration was the impetus for one of our many ideas for possible Unicron.com accessory packs that never came to fruition. The difference with this idea, is that final 3D models, and even one round of resin prototypes were produced. We decided last minute to can the production of this accessory pack due to timing, perceived interest, and the relatively high production cost involved. Check our our short homage to the Unicron.com Armada Megatron Leg Kit that never was (or ever will be).


Tigerhawk's biggest change is to the tiger 'brow making it a smooth, steel-colored piece & above it a hair-textured look. I colored bot/beast eyes to match the post- vok-possesed' look of show & added subtle accents to bot's teeth & steel 'lines' to make 'em stand out.

Transmetal 2 MEGATRON

In addition to Perceptor resculpted Megatron's face, & giving the wings an all orange look like the show, I 'altered' the dragon neck so it stays in the position you put it in. Click HERE to learn how I did what I did.

Transmetal 2 DINOBOT

Perceptor started altering TM2 Dinobot by doing some minor face resculpting/painting. The only major change was given to each hand, making the slasher claw/fore-finger a separage joint from the thumb (which can articulate). Click the link to see How to alter your own TM2 Dinobot!


To make the Cyber-Raptor Perceptor started with a Jurassic Park velociraptor toy, he added cyber components & sculpted them to look like it does in the show. He used light gray and white spray paint & hand painted the cyber parts w/ light blue/chrome paint.


Perceptor made Ravage starting w/ a TM Cheetor (Hey, that's what Mainframe used!) The arms are from an original Cybershark and I re-molded an original Tigatron beast head to make Ravage's. The chest was sculpted almost entirely from scratch.


Perceptor made Transmutate cutting and blending various parts from several different toys including a Manga Curse, a Tigatron, an Aliens figure, and a "Meched-Out Gargoyles". Certain parts like the face and hand were made/sculpted from scratch.

Transmetal CHEETOR

Transmetal Cheetor was sooo close to the show, yet just a little off in robot mode. Never fear, he was a perfect candidate for Alteration treatment! You know that gnarly grin they gave him? Yea, we didn't like it either! I also fixed the coloring of the face and chest plate. by: Jason


I resculpted Megatron's face to give it sharp pointy things & re- molded the shark-tooth grin to make it look like it does in the show. The brown plastic was easily turned black with a permanent marker. I highly recommend doing this folks, it's easy and it makes a huge difference. by: Perceptor


I always thought they should have had Skyshadow in the show rather than Quickstrike but hey that's just me! Skyshadow is a great toy, made better with a few minor improvements to the faces of robot and beast. by: Perceptor


Rampage is an awesome toy, but I wanted the head to look more like the show and be able to attach the crab legs to the shell in robot mode AND still be totally transformable. Click HERE to learn how to do it. by: Perceptor


Ramulus is another great toy and no changes are needed except that you can only have the beast head in basically one (awkward) position. It drove me crazy, so I fixed it! Click HERE to find out how you can alter your's! by: Perceptor
