Welcome to the new Unicron.com Alterations Blog! Although some people call them "kitbashes" or "customs,” we prefer “Alterations” because it takes more than just paint or a model kit to produce these works of art! With all the functionality that Blogger has to offer, we now provide a totally interactive database where posts can be viewed, commented upon and organized based on series, artist, character, or your own unique search criteria! (Check out the nav bar for suggestions.) To post comments, sign in with your valid ID from Google, Blogger, AIM, LiveJournal, WordPress, or TypePad.

For you artists out there, showing off your work is now easier than ever. Simply e-mail digital photos to: obsidian@unicron.com. We'll get them uploaded and linked as promptly as we can. Thanks for visiting and for all your contributions!

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).
