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!

Lukis Bro's TFA Ratchet: with Prototype Magnets

Prototype Ratchet Magnets:

The items show in this album are a second round prototype for the magnets in our upcoming accessory pack #6! The final version will differ in a number of ways (for the better), but here's a close up look at an earlier stage of what is soon to come.

It's been a long time since we've shown off any our own alterations handywork. TFA Ratchet, along with pretty much every other TFA toy has an amazingly show accurate head sculpt, only it seems to lack the proper paint to back it up. I've repainted the head of this toy, sanded down the post on his forearm so his EMP generator will stay attached, and (last but not least) added show accurate magnets. I hope you like.
