As a follow-up to Sabrblade's post asking about fan's experience with new Transformers: Animated figures, we thought we'd point out an excellent thread on Allspark.com where toy alterations guru Jin Saotome outlines a few very simple ways to correct issues people have mentioned. As he eloquently puts it, "...I agree that toys should come without problems right out of the box, but sometimes there are things that need to be worked out with a new series..." He also give instructions on contacting Hasbro and doing our part to let them know, when appropriate.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll get them uploaded and linked as promptly as we can. Thanks for visiting and for all your contributions!
